Prime was already a good investment before Amazon, by far the world’s largest online retailer, started rolling out new services with it. Amazon Prime started out as a way to get your packages faster and not have to pay to have everything shipped to you. All you had to do was search for a Prime badge next to the item price.
This simple way to avoid paying shipping costs has become a juggernaut in itself that can easily compete with other subscription services. Instant Video streaming, music streaming, and discounts on games are just three of the great things that pop up when you have an Amazon Prime subscription.
It’s hard not to find someone who already has an Amazon Prime subscription today. If you know someone who doesn’t have an Amazon Prime subscription, you can effortlessly share yours. Here’s how to share an Amazon Prime post and video with your friends so they don’t have to pay extra for another subscription or pay for multiple subscriptions in your home.
Before You Begin
Before we begin, it’s absolutely essential that you understand what it means to share Amazon Prime and what it doesn’t.
Amazon continues to deliver to Amazon Households. Essentially, the feature acts as a glue between the two accounts, sharing some Amazon Prime benefits. Most people who use Amazon Prime for streaming video will recognize the name of the feature; The setting is also responsible for allowing child accounts to share video streams and to allow parents to manage media available to their children on their Kindle Fire tablets.
Enter the email address of the Amazon Account you want to share your benefits with and you’re almost ready. Amazon provides these benefits to the second user, but also stipulates that users must share payment information if they want to be able to order items with Prime Two-Day shipping, read Kindle books from their library, and watch different content kids.
Because you’re sharing payment information, you definitely don’t want to share Amazon Prime with anyone you don’t trust with your information.

On the Account page, scroll down until you see the option in the Account Settings area under Amazon Kids Profiles. Click on it.
Click Add an Adult on the left side of your screen to add another adult to your account. You can also add children from here. In the middle are options for managing the content you share. To add the extra adult, you’ll need the email address they use on their account.
Amazon says you can share your shipping benefits, streaming video benefits, Amazon Fresh deliveries, sub-item discounts, early access to deals, Kindle books, and streaming music.
Think for a moment before you decide to cut your digital ties with someone you decide to stop sharing an Amazon Prime subscription with. The company will not allow either of you to start a new home for at least 180 days after you leave each other. An account loses sub-accounts, payment options, and access to manage any video content.
