Good thing I locked in a dozen years at $79.

But I'm still not able to use it as I don't want to give up my sharing benefits.

I was able to use a gift of prime i had locked in at $79 (on 10/8/17) and then got them to reinstate my grandfathered sharing benefits.

Ditto, until the people I share with decide to stop, I'm just saving my $79 x I don't remember how many

I have a post somewhere in the forum guaranteeing you Prime will go up before June.
Ding ding ding.

Because most of their customers are annual subscribers and raising the rates even one penny is a drastic move and has to be done correctly. My guess is around Prime day they'll raise the rates while throwing in some one time benefit to make up for the increase.
If I had to guess I'd say the majority of month to month subscribers are either poor people or those that have trouble doing math. Poor people don't have $99 to drop but they can find $10 to scrape away every month. Dumb people, well, are just dumb and probably don't realize that it costs more. Regardless, no one is actually "locked in" more than a year. I have a feeling that many of the month to month people just testing out Prime move to annual once they're on for a few months.

The people above this quoted post say they can't share. If I follow the directions in this post will I still be able to share my prime access with my wife?

You will still be able to share within the household as long as you don't mind the cc info being shared.

Most people need prime for fast 2 day shipping is it really worth paying $119 plus tax to have it delivered little faster? I don't get it

Donít forget the thrill of getting it same day or even an hour or 2.
