Amazon Cuts Down On Prime Sharing

Aug 05

An anonymous reader writes: Tech Crunch reports that Amazon quietly rolled out changes to how their Prime subscriptions can be shared. The good news is that existing members aren’t immediately losing their current sharing setups. It used to be that Amazon would let Prime subscribers share free shipping and a few other benefits with up to four other “household” members, with little restriction on what counted as a “household.” The bad news: as of last weekend, Amazon now limits sharing to one other adult and four “child” profiles. The adults will need to authorize each other to use credit/debit cards associated with the account. Amazon didn’t make any announcement about this, so it’s unknown how long existing Prime shares will stay in effect. They could disappear when the subscription is up for renewal, or earlier if Amazon decides to crack down on it.
