Dear Prime Customer,
Thank you for being an Amazon Prime customer. We are writing to inform you of a future change in the price of your subscription.
From September 15, 2022, the price of the monthly Prime subscription will increase from €3.99 to €4.99/month and the price of the annual Prime subscription will increase from €36.00 to €49.90/year . The new price, depending on the plan you have subscribed to, will apply to renewals that take place after September 15, 2022. You can check your next renewal date, change your plan or cancel your subscription at any time by visiting your account.
We are making this change based on and in accordance with Section 5 of the Amazon Prime Terms and Conditions. The reasons for this change are due to the general and material increase in expenditure levels due to the increase in inflation that affects the specific costs of the Prime service in Spain and are due to external circumstances that do not depend on Amazon.
We continue to strive to improve the Amazon Prime service for our customers. This is the first time we’ve increased the price of Amazon Prime in Spain since August 2018. During this time, we’ve increased the selection of products available with unlimited fast Prime shipping, added and expanded super-fast shipping of fresh produce from the supermarket and added more high-quality digital entertainment, including series, films, music, games and books. Specifically, Prime Video has increased the number of Amazon Originals series and movies.
Your Amazon Prime Team
