Amazon Prime Video plans benefits and offers

There are two Amazon Prime membership plans that you can choose from – quarterly and yearly. Getting a Prime membership is vital because that’s the gateway to your access to Prime Videos and other services such as shopping, Prime music subscription, and early access to deals offered by Amazon India. The Amazon Prime Video allows users to create different profiles when multiple people are using the same account. Doing this, you get personalised choices of shows, products based on who is using the account at that point. One Amazon account user can have 5 profiles, used by different people.

Amazon Prime Video quarterly plan

Amazon Prime membership also is available in a quarterly form. By making a larger payment, for a longer duration, you tend to save money (compared to the monthly plan). So, if you go for the Prime Video quarterly plan, you have to pay Rs 329 after every three months. And like other Prime membership, this gets you Prime Music, Prime deals with special discounts and early sale dates on Amazon India, among others.

Amazon Prime Video yearly plan

And finally, you have the most popular annual Amazon Prime plan that costs Rs 999. This makes Prime the most affordable yearly streaming plan compared to what you pay for Disney+ Hotstar or Netflix these days. Making a payment of Rs 999 also means you pay less than Rs 100 per month (effectively), which is quite appealing for most consumers.

Amazon Rs 129 monthly plan was recently discontinued, so you only have the option to go for the quarterly or yearly plan. That said, Amazon often announces attractive discounts on its subscription plans. Recently, the company announced 50 per cent off on its Prime membership plans for users aged between 18 to 24.
