Amazon Prime is going to get a bit more expensive over in Canada soon, over the years Prime in America has had multiple price jumps but in Canada the subscription has never had a price increase, it has been the same $8 CAD per month out $79 CAD (£48) per year since it was launched back in 2013.

However, in the last few days website MobileSyrup has found out that Amazon is planning on raising prices in Canada to $10 CAD per month and to $99 CAD per year. In the US, the prices have jumped so much that it is now $15 per month or $139 (£105) per year.

Current members will see the affect of the price jump from 13th May onwards, so if your renewal is before then you won’t need to pay it until the next bill in June. Students on their Prime plan will also see a price jump, from $4 CAD per month up to $5 CAD.
