Reaping the benefits of Amazon Prime is not really costly considering all you get, but the high one-time $99 yearly fee can be a bit hard to swallow. Amazon offers a way to pay for it monthly, and now does Sprint too. The carrier has just announced a new exclusive deal it has scored with Amazon, in which customers can pay for Amazon Prime through their monthly bill.

It would simply be included as an add-on, priced at $10.99. That will add up to $131.88 per year, which is significantly pricier than just paying for Prime up front. Some people will really enjoy the convenience of having the cost added to an already-existing bill, though. It’s one less thing to worry about. Not to mention the fact that Sprint is throwing in a pretty nice incentive.

Sprint is also willing to give you 60 days of Amazon Prime for free, if you sign up for this add-on during July. Subscribers can then cancel their subscriptions if they so desire, making this a very sweet free trial period.

Of course, you get everything you would expect from an Amazon Prime subscription, including free 2-day shipping, access to Amazon Instant Video, unlimited music streaming, unlimited cloud storage through Prime Photo, free Kindle books, early access to lightning deals and more.
