Sprint Offering Monthly Subscription to Amazon Prime
Sprint customers can add an Amazon Prime membership to their monthly Sprint bill starting today. The subscription costs $10.99 per month and includes all the benefits available to Amazon Prime members, including reduced shipping charges, Prime Video, Prime Music, Prime Photos, and more. Customers can add Prime using Sprint's web site, telesales, or visit Sprint retail stores. Sprint says it will send an activation link to customers to complete the registration process. With a Prime account, Sprint subscribers will be able to download and use Amazon's collection of Prime apps at no additional charge. Consumers may be better off paying for Amazon Prime on their own. The subscription plan is attractive at $10.99 per month, but at $132 for 12 months the subscription is significantly more than the standard yearly fee to join Prime directly via Amazon, which is $99.
