- Amazon Prime subscription’s price will increase by up to 50 percent
- The revised pricing will come into effect in India from December 13th, 2021
- The pricing of all three Prime subscription plans will increase
Amazon Prime membership’s price in India will increase in December. Last month, a banner had appeared on the retailer site to inform users about the price hike. At that time, the company had revealed the revised pricing of all three subscription plans, but it did not confirm the date from when the new pricing will come into effect.
The Prime membership includes plenty of benefits like fast delivery, Prime Video content, and access to Prime Music, and more. Since the Prime subscription is slated to become expensive next month, it appears to be the right time to purchase or renew it if you frequently shop on Amazon or watch Prime Video content.
Amazon Prime membership to become expensive from December
Amazon India has increased the pricing of the Prime membership plans. The FAQ page of the Amazon Prime Membership states that the new pricing will come into effect at 11:59 PM on December 13th. The monthly, quarterly, and yearly subscription plans are priced at Rs 129, Rs 329, and Rs 999, respectively. After the said date, these plans will be available for Rs 179, Rs 459, and Rs 1,499, respectively.
At present, Amazon is encouraging users to make the most of the limited period offer by joining or renewing the Prime subscription to lock in the old price. All the existing Prime members can continue to enjoy the Prime membership benefits for the duration of their current subscription. Shown above is a screenshot of the offer that was shared on the Desi Dime discussions forum site.

It also confirmed that all auto-renewals for existing Prime members during the offer period will be at the offer price. The Prime Youth plan available for users between 18 and 24 years will continue to receive extra cashback on successful age verification.
