“We are doubling down on our investments in India for Amazon Prime Videos”Jeff Benzos
This was the dialogue of Mr Jeff during his recent visit to India, from this it is quite visible that down the line you may expect more Amazon prime best series and blockbuster contents coming on to your screen from Amazon.
So if you are a frequent shopper from Amazon with almost 2 orders per month of less than 599. Or you enjoy shopping during sales on Amazon website which almost comes every quarter than the Amazon prime membership is a good bet for you where you get back your investment within a year with access to Amazon Prime Videos and Amazon Prime Music as an added advantage.
No doubt in India there are not much big entities like Amazon as of now where you can get almost any products you are looking for. So with this limitation, I guess being a prime member is overall a good bet for you as far as India is concerned. Currently, the Amazon prime membership fee is Rs 999/ year or 129/month.
