Amazon is Offering Prime Discounts to Low-Income Shoppers

Send to Kindle

Yesterday, Walmart announced its new Associate Delivery system in a bid to improve its customers’ shopping experience and of course, keep up with its biggest rival, Amazon. 

In response to that, the online retailer launched today its low-cost version of Amazon Prime for people on government assistance, positioning itself as an even harder and greater competitor to other big retailers such as Walmart.

Instead of the $10.99/month or $99/year plan, customers who have a valid Electronic Benefits Transfer (EBT) card can sign up for Prime for only $5.99/month, with the ability to cancel anytime.

“We know when people try Prime they love it, because they save time and money with low prices on millions of items, unlimited access to premium videos and music, and fast, convenient delivery.  We designed this membership option for customers receiving government assistance to make our everyday selection and savings more accessible, including the many conveniences and entertainment benefits of Prime,” said Greg Greeley, Vice President of Amazon Prime.

Aside from the fast, free two-day shipping, the discounted Prime membership will also give members unlimited access to Prime Video, Prime Music, Prime Photos, Prime Reading, Audible, Kindle First, Twitch Prime and early access to select Lightning Deals.
