    If you have had 2 adults on your prime account and let your account lapse, you can't join another for 180 days.

    Is there still an option to not share payment methods? Do you think it's safe to share with a none family member?

    I'm in a household with my partner and I get the free prime deliveries etc... However I don't appear to get Prime Video. It doesn't accept my credentials (which are same for the household account) and asks me to sign up for a prime trial. When I check my actual account on Amazon though it shows I'm a prime member.

    So I guess what I'm asking is do you have to use the main account holders credentials to sign in and use Prime video, or should I as a household account be able to use it using my own email etc..?
