Amazon slashes Prime cost for Medicaid recipients

Techstination feature for Tuesday, March 20, 2018

Techstination, your destination for gadgets and gear.   I’m Fred Fishkin.   A big part of Amazon’s strategy to win more customers over to Amazon Prime….has been to make it much more than a way to save on shipping charges for frequent customers.    Bundling in Prime Videos and basic music…and the ability to store and organize pictures with Prime Photos are just some of the extras.    And now, Amazon is making it more affordable for customers who are on Medicaid.   Aaron Perrine is Program Leader for Prime Life Stages…

“It’s a great plan.  Less than six dollars a month.  No commitment.   Members can cancel any time.  What we’re hoping to do with this offer and this expansion is to make Prime accessible for more customers with an easy, straight forward sign up process.”

The regular price is 12.99 a month of 99 dollars a year….and the Medicaid discount is available to millions.
