Amazon Prime costs $20 more beginning Friday


Two weeks ago, Amazon revealed it is raising the Amazon Prime price for U.S. annual subscribers from $99 to $119. Amazon is rolling out the new fee Friday for new customers, and June 16 for current members.

Amazon Prime will now cost consumers an extra $20 for a membership.
