Amazon debuted its Prime services in India back in 2016 by offering faster delivery speeds to customers with Prime memberships. The membership was free for a limited time of 90 days, and if the customer wanted to continue using the Prime service, a yearly fee of Rs. 499 had to be paid which was later on revised to Rs. 999 per annum. Though initially, the Prime services in India included just faster delivery, it was later on expanded to Amazon Prime Video as well, which is a video streaming service similar to Netflix and Hotstar. A couple of months back, Amazon also launched the Prime Music service for India, making the Rs. 999 price tag worthy in terms of all the services it had to offer. But, what if users didn’t want a long-term subscription?
Well, Amazon has now answered that with a monthly subscription plan of Rs. 129, which will provide the users with all the Prime benefits, but for a period of 30 days which can then be topped up whenever required. This is useful if you’re not a very frequent user of the services offered by Amazon Prime or you just want to test the services out for a month before you make the yearly investment.
Amazon seems to value their Prime customers by adding more and more benefits regularly, like the recent trial room feature they enabled for Prime users in the United States where if you are an Amazon Prime member, you get to try out clothes at your house before you make a decision if you want to make the purchase or not. Also, Amazon has the best deals for Prime members on the Amazon Prime Day sale which it hosts every year, where the majority of the goods sold are available at heavy discounts.
So, if you want faster delivery speeds for various products that you’ll be ordering in a span of one month, and then you do not require the facilities offered by Amazon Prime, or you just wish to catch your favorite shows on Prime Video and decide to binge watch them in a month’s time, you can opt for one month of Prime membership and save a few bucks instead of subscribing for an entire year.
