Share Prime benefits such as Prime delivery and Video by adding a "family member" under the Amazon Household.

My wife piggybacks off her sisters prime. Two separate amazon accounts with different payment methods and different delivery addresses but only one (the sister in law in my case) pays for the Prime membership.

Sharing benefits with Amazon Household requires both adults to link their accounts in an Amazon Household and agree to share payment methods. Each adult keeps his or her personal account while sharing benefits at no additional cost. To set up an Amazon Household, go to the Amazon Householdmain page.

Prime benefits that can be shared with the other adult in your Amazon Household include:

Delivery Benefits

  • Prime Delivery
  • Prime Now
  • AmazonFresh grocery delivery (if the Prime member has the Fresh Add-On)


Digital Benefits

  • Prime Video (streaming only)
  • Prime Reading


Discounts and Exclusives
  • Prime Wardrobe
  • Prime Early Access
  • Prime-Exclusive items
  • Prime Live Events, Premium Seating, and Pre-Sale tickets on tickets.amazon.co.uk (Note that these tickets are exclusively available to paid Prime members).
  • Prime-exclusive pricing on Amazon Music Unlimited and Kindle Fire for Kids Unlimited subscriptions.
  • 20% off nappies subscriptions, compliments of Amazon Family.
The following Prime Benefit can be shared with any family member, subject to age restrictions:

Twitch Prime: Twitch Prime is a set of Amazon Prime benefits created for gamers. Prime and Prime Student members can share the on-Twitch benefits of Twitch Prime. Members can link up to four Twitch accounts to enjoy ad-free Twitch viewing and exclusive chat icons. Twitch Prime also includes access to games, in-game loot, and a channel subscription at no additional cost for the first user under the shared account who accesses each benefit. To link up to four Twitch accounts with your Amazon Prime or Prime Student account, visit Twitch Prime .

Note:

  • Prime Music and Prime Video Channels content are not sharable.
  • For more details about Prime benefits, go to About Amazon Prime
    • Student members can't share Prime benefits through Amazon Household, and customers receiving their delivery benefits from another Prime member can't share their benefits
    • Prime benefits can't be shared with child profiles from Fire for Kids Unlimited.

Sorry if this has already been posted (I did a quick search but couldn't see one).

Just FYI its not my real photo.
Thanks for the info.
I didn't think Video was included in this? I've been my boss' 'nephew' for years and always get prompted to Join Prime when I try.

Streaming only but yes, it is included.
anyone know if Amazon will do the £59 annual prime membership they usually do leading up to black friday?
I do this this with the mother-in-law and split the yearly sub 50/50. It's a nice little benefit. Just be careful when you deactivate the family link you cannot re-link another account for 180 days! (or 6 months)
So Amazon Prime discriminates against single people?
Prime is free anyway.....

Wonder if you can share a UK Amazon Prime account with a US family member (non Prime) who’s account is on Amazon USA
Edited by: "CouchPotatoe" 7th Nov 2018
Wow this is massive. Thanks OP!
Word of warning though, appears that Alexa is also linked via prime when you do this, not good when your EX gets a call history log with your new partner on their alexa.

Is it, how? Did you somehow avoid the annual £79 fee for having it? If you did avoid it, we'd all love to know how?

I'm guessing it's the old month trial and 12 email accounts (or 12 variations of a gmail account) trick.

As Hilazing said, 12 separate accounts on trial (the trial resets itself every year)
Activate one every month as and when I need it.
Amazon even commented on it awhile back when I phoned due to an order problem, they said its fine to do it as the money gained from product purchases more than outweighs people doing it.

Had me til I saw it could only be one payer. NOPE.

One payer for the prime membership but not for the orders. You can order from two separate accounts using separate (and not shared) payment methods.
There are some odd restrictions to this though - e.g you can’t have 2 Amazon music accounts each and you can’t both download Prime videos with 2 different logins - this only works from the main account (annoyingly)
so sad
Wait so you have to have a shared payment method? Or you can each have your own?
Wish I knew someone with prime

One of the benefits of creating a Household with another adult is the ability to share credit and debit cards with each other.
