Share Your Amazon Prime Account With Your Family

If you hold an Amazon Prime account, did you know that you can share all the Prime benefits with your family, at no extra cost!?

If like my family, you and your family members are paying separately for an Amazon Prime account, you can look to add 1 extra adult, over the age of 18, and 4 children to your Amazon account, for free, and the extra adult can cancel their Prime account, and save at least £79.99 per year by doing so!

Both adults share select Prime benefits, digital content using Family Library, and can manage the profiles of children in the Amazon Household. The children can use the Prime benefits such as eBooks, apps, and games, but, and you will be relieved to hear this, they can't actually shop and purchase on the Amazon website (can you imagine if they could!)

Adults can control and personalise each child's experience by selecting what content they can see, and setting educational goals and time limits.

To share Prime benefits and digital content between adults, both adults must link their accounts through Amazon Household and agree to share payment methods. This won't affect current payment settings, but each adult will be able to copy the payment cards of the other account and use them for purchases on To share Prime Video streaming, both adults must have a Buy Now billing address and payment method within the UK. Both adults will keep their own personal account while sharing Prime benefits, so you won't be able to see what they've been buying, and vice versa, so no spoiled gift surprises!

While sharing payment methods is a requirement for adults to share digital content through Family Library, this is not required for an adult to share digital content with children.

Content from household member accounts is also shared on compatible Alexa devices

You can easily sign up and add your family members to your account, for free on the Amazon Household website HERE

If you don't already have Prime, you can get a free 30 day trial, to try out all the features for yourself, however trial accounts, (and Student Prime accounts), cannot sign up for the Household service..
