    SEATTLE - The monthly membership fees for Amazon Prime will change starting Friday.

    It will go up to $12.99 from $10.99, but the annual membership will remain at $99 dollars.

    Monthly customers do not get free access to Amazon Video. That cost is $8.99 a month and is also not increasing.

    The last Prime subscription hike came in 2014, when Amazon increased their yearly membership from $79 to $99.

    The e-commerce company did not give a reason for the price increase.
