So it did happen. As I’ve mentioned in my previous post here, I definitely have the willingness to pay the $99 price tag. As Mashable points out, $99 comes to $8.25/month which is only slightly more than Netflix or Hulu at $7.99/month. For my part, I actually cancelled my Netflix in favor of Amazon Instant Video and only watch the free version of Hulu.┬áBesides, I have the benefit of coming off of a fresh Amazon student prime membership which means I will be paying the old rate of $79. So, yes, I will remain a Primer. Good stuff.

What about you? Does the $99 price tag turn you off of Amazon Prime?
