Your monthly Amazon Prime membership fees are about to increase

If you’re on-board for Amazon’s monthly Prime membership, I’ve got a bit of bad news for you on this cold December morning. The company’s bumping up pricing from $10.99 to $12.99. Not the end of the world, of course, but that comes out to about $156 a year — a $24 increase over the old price.
