Amazon is boosting the price of its "Prime" membership to $99 a year, a 25 percent jump for US customers seeking free delivery and access to the streaming video service. The price hike unveiled Thursday is the first since Amazon launched the program in 2005. If you consider things like inflation and fuel costs, a Prime membership valued at $79 in 2005 would be worth more than $100 today," an Amazon statement said. The Prime membership packages several services including a streaming video service which competes with that of rivals like Netflix, which charges $8 a month, or $96 a year.
