Sprint has just announced that it is now giving its customers the option of getting a subscription to Amazon Prime and add it to their existing wireless plan. Such a subscription would come with the usual perks of Amazon Prime, such as free two-day shipping, video content streaming, Prime Music access, unlimited storage for images, and the Kindle e-book lending library.
But customers might balk at the idea of paying $10.99 per month (which is equivalent to about paying $131.88 annually), considering that anybody can independently sign up for an Amazon Prime subscription for less than a hundred bucks per year.
As insisted by Sprint, its deal offers more convenience and options. Because the Amazon Prime offer is made monthly, subscribers of the wireless carrier could choose to try out the service and then have the option of terminating the subscription any time they want. Such flexibility is not possible with a regular subscription to Amazon Prime, which usually locks a subscriber for an entire year.
But is getting more convenience and flexibility worth the extra cash? Sprint certainly believes so, especially for subscribers who do not want to get tied to a year-long commitment. Obviously, this deal offers an advantage for those who do not mind not having Amazon Prime every month, but for those who want to be subscribed to the service in the long term, signing up separately may prove to be cheaper.
