Amazon has changed the rules for sharing Prime membership benefits. Before today’s changes, Prime members were allowed to share some Prime benefits, most notably the free two day shipping benefit and Prime Instant Video access, with up to four family members living in the same household. Today, Amazon has updated their help page regarding Prime sharing. It now says that Prime members can share Prime benefits with only one other adult. It appears that, for the time being at least, these changes are not retroactive. Meaning, if you are currently sharing your Prime benefits with more than one person, those extra people will continue to receive those shared benefits as long as you don’t make any changes to your sharing settings. If you remove any of these extra people for whatever reason, you will not be able to re-share Prime benefits with them if you are already sharing your benefits with someone else. If you’re interested, read on for a screenshot of the old rules regarding sharing Prime benefits.
