The new pricing will start applying to renewals starting Sept. 15, Amazon said in the message to customers.

If you currently pay monthly, and want to keep it, if you can afford switch to annual now, to get next year at £79.

Amazon said the price hikes are due to “increased inflation and operating costs.”

“We will keep working to ensure Prime offers exceptional value for members,” Amazon said.

The price increases come a few months after Amazon lifted the prices for Amazon Prime in the U.S. In February 2022, the company started charging $139, instead of $119, for an annual Prime membership.
