Amazon is reportedly in talks with several US cellular companies for offering their workers network services to its Prime members.
If made available, Amazon may get cellular services for free or dead-cheap rate, bundled with their Prime membership. Though Amazon and a couple of these networks denied any talks yet, Bloomberg quotes certain sources for this offer’s possibility.
Cellular Offers With Prime Membership
Amazon’s Prime membership is already a lot for us, with perks like free two-day shipping on eligible items, free same-day shipping in many zip codes across the U.S., Prime Video, Amazon Music, Prime Gaming, etc. Adding to all these, the company is reportedly planning to offer cellular services in the Prime subscription.
As Bloomberg reported, Amazon is in talks with several US cellular companies like AT&T, T-Mobile, Dish, and Verizon to source their networks for this new offer. Well, the report also cautions Amazon is yet to take any concrete decision on this and may dump it if talks fail.
An Amazon spokesperson has already denied the plans and said, “We are always exploring adding even more benefits for Prime members, but don’t have plans to add wireless at this time.”
Both Verizon and T-Mobile too denied holding any talks with Amazon on this case, so we’re adamant about this offer going through. Even if does, at any point later, it’ll take months to go live for the users. And if available, Bloomberg states that Amazon may offer the bundled cellular service for free or at dead-cheap prices, like $10 or so.
This makes Amazon Prime membership even more worthwhile, which is already offering a ton of benefits for its subscribers. The plan costs $15 a month or $139 annually.
