A lot of people became more reliant on Amazon during the pandemic . . . and they delivered, within two days.  Or three.  Or four.  But now, they’re looking for a raise.

Amazon just announced they’re jacking up the price of a Prime membership.  They’re raising the monthly fee from $13 to $15 . . . and the annual price will be bumped from $119 to $139.  That’s a hefty 17% increase.  It’s their first increase since 2018.

The higher rates kick in February 18th for new customers and March 25th for existing customers.
