Amazon Prime now available to Sprint customers for $11 a month

If you wanted to try out Amazon Prime but don't have the $99 on hands for its normal annual fee, you might want to switch over to Sprint. The carrier has announced that new or current customers have the option to access Amazon Prime as an option on their bills for $10.99 a month.

This is the first time that Amazon Prime has been available on a month-to-month basis. Sprint says:

"Amazon Prime is another example of the innovative options that Sprint delivers every day to its customers," said Marcelo Claure, Sprint CEO. "With this monthly add-on, Sprint customers will have great flexibility and will have the opportunity to easily access Amazon's full entertainment package on America's fastest LTE network."

If Sprint customers stick with their Amazon Prime option for 12 months, they will pay more than the regular user of the service as the yearly cost will be about $132. On the other hand, Sprint customers could also check it out for a few months to access Amazon Prime Video's exclusive shows like Transparent and The Man in the High Castle and then remove the option from their bill and not have to pay the $99 annual fee.
