Here's how much you have to buy to make Amazon Prime worth it

Amazon increased the price of its annual Prime subscription to $US99 in March of 2014. Amazon offers many services to its Prime members including free 2-day shipping, unlimited streaming of Amazon Prime Instant Video and access to the Kindle Lending Library. We considered the actual value of these services to determine if a Prime membership is worth the cost.

Amazon also recently added new benefits for Prime members. Prime Music allows unlimited streaming of over one million songs. Amazon added free unlimited photo storage on Amazon Cloud Drive. So if you take advantage of these new perks it makes the membership even more valuable.
