Amazon Prime hack that saves you a third off your bill

Amazon Prime hack that saves you a third off your bill

You might not even know the option exists

Amazon Prime Video customers can save almost £40 a year by following one simple hack.

And we're sure the little known rule couldn't come soon enough for those who might be thinking about axing their Amazon Prime subscription once and for all.

Some with Amazon Prime accounts have been left royally annoyed by the streaming giant's new business model which involves bringing in adverts and upping what they charge us.

The Boys is one of the most critically acclaimed and watched shows on Amazon Prime Video.

What's really annoyed people is you now have to pay an extra £2.99 to stay ad-free. You can't blame them; the same service but for more money is never going to go down well.

It's already been rolled out in the USA and Canada, with the United Kingdom and Germany next.

So if you're looking to save the pennies where you can - it all adds up quickly when you might also be subscribed to Disney+ and Netflix - look no further.

Cord Busters has revealed a neat little trick in the Amazon subscription packages.

Many subscribes are finding that they are paying for the entire Amazon Prime service. We're talking Prime Video but also free shipping and a music subscription.

Streaming service costs can add up quickly.

That package sets you back £8.99 every month or £95 for the year.

What many are now finding is that you can subscribe to Amazon Prime Video on its own. And it's significantly cheaper.

For just Prime Video, you can choose a package that costs just £5.99 a month. That's a third of the entire bill saved.

Disclaimer - adverts are included in this package, with the extra extra £2.99 ad-free payment every month needed if you want to get rid full stop.

The Prime membership options.

To change what kind of Prime account you have, you will need to go in to your 'Manage Prime Membership' page.

On bringing in adverts Amazon has claimed the move will ‘allow us to continue investing in compelling content and keep increasing that investment over a long period of time’.

In an email, the company said: ""We aim to have meaningfully fewer ads than linear TV and other streaming TV providers."

One user, who claims to be familiar with the industry, wrote: “Work in the industry and the steaming ad revenue is the new frontier. They’ve created basic cable but you pay them directly.

“This is the ‘revolutionary’ future of streaming. They are all going to raise prices until the ad supported tier makes sense.

“What they don’t understand is that they’ve created an entire generation that WILL NOT WATCH ADS. If that means piracy? Then piracy will become a thing again.”
