No primary category set

Amazon.com are aiming to help the poorest in the US with a discounted Amazon Prime subscription with the aim to offer them the ability to save time and money with low prices and free delivery.

“We know when people try Prime they love it, because they save time and money with low prices on millions of items, unlimited access to premium videos and music, and fast, convenient delivery. We designed this membership option for customers receiving government assistance to make our everyday selection and savings more accessible, including the many conveniences and entertainment benefits of Prime.”
– Greg Greeley, Vice President of Amazon Prime

To qualify you need to be receiving some form of government assistance which you’ll prove via your Electronic Benefits Transfer (EBT) Card. Your Prime membership will then cost $5.99 per month (compared to the standard rate of $10.99 per month or $99.00 if paid annually.

As well as access to Prime deliveries, those on government assistance will get access to the full gamut of Prime benefits including Prime Video, Prime Music, Prime Reading, Prime Photos, early access to Lightening Deal (Remember Prime Day is coming up and likely to take place in July) and Prime Now in areas where it’s available.

Customers can qualify for discounted Prime membership every 12 months up to 4 times. Amazon say that they will also add other ways to qualify in the future for customers participating in government assistance programs that do not utilize EBT. There is no annual commitment and members can cancel at any time.
