Amazon Prime, the company’s streaming and expedited delivery service has been discounted for the last few months, following Amazon’s entry into Australia. Tomorrow is the last day before the discounted price of $4.99 jumps to $6.99.
Amazon Prime is probably the best value subscription service going around – as long as the content is what you’re looking for. As well as the streaming video service, you get access to 2 million tracks on Prime Music, free access to 1,000 e-books and games and exclusive in-game content through Twitch Prime.
If you sign up for Amazon Prime you’ll pick up a month for free and a price $4.99 per before the price goes up at the start of February to $6.99 per month.

Part of that includes Amazon Prime, a paid subscription service that provides users with extra benefits, such discounts, deals and even streaming video. So, what does Prime have to offer Australians?”]
Given the way subscription costs can tally up, $2.00 a month doesn’t sound like much but it’s a couple of decent take-away meals a year.
Amazon has provided some further clarification:
Customers are eligible for their free-trial, then one-month at the introductory price if they signed up before end of day 31st. So they would pay $4.99 on 28 February, then $6.99 for their next payment.
