The online shopping giant Amazon has hiked the cost of monthly Prime memberships in the USA from $2 to $12.99 in order to attract more people towards an annual plan. The cost for students will now be $6.49, an uptick of $1.

In 2016, though, the monthly option was added for users who didn't want to commit to an entire year. The prime membership is being offered in 16 countries so far, with around 90 million customers in the U.S. (not confirmed).
