Have you been putting off joining Amazon Prime because of the yearly fee? Sprint is hoping a lot of you feel the same way, and the carrier is offering its customers the chance to subscribe to the popular membership on a month-to-month basis without any further commitment.
All you have to do is add Amazon Prime to your Sprint account by either visiting www.sprint.com/amazonprime, calling 1-(800)-SPRINT1, or visiting your local Sprint store.
An additional $11 will be added to your monthly bill, which comes to $132 annualized. That’s an extra cost of $33 over the annual $99 price everyone else pays.
The service itself is exactly the same, which means that on top of free two-day shipping on most products and early access to Lighting Deals, you’ll also be able to stream tens of thousands of movies and TV episodes, including any Amazon original programming, with Prime Video. You’ll also get access to 1 million songs through Prime Music, as well as the Kindle Lending Library and unlimited photo storage in Amazon Cloud.
You can access Amazon Prime Video through select smart TVs or on some set-top boxes like Fire TV. You can also get the app on your Android phone or tablet, as well as the iPhone and iPad.
Although purchasing Amazon Prime through Sprint will cost you more over 12 months, it makes sense if you only want the service for certain times of year. Maybe you want the free two-day shipping around the holidays when you make more purchases or you might want to binge watch a particular show.
We’re not sure if this deal is enough of a reason for you to switch to Sprint, but considering the carrier is willing to give you up to $650 to cover the cost of dumping your current carrier, and the opportunity (though check the details) to save 50 percent off of your current AT&T, T-Mobile, or Verizon bill, it might be worth a look.
