Share Amazon Prime account and advantages with somebody with out giving freely your password
We’ve all been there – you want to order a screen protector, a charger, or watch the new Fast & Furious movie (OK, maybe not this one), but you don’t have a Prime account!
How are you? You ask your roommate for the password. They’re giving it to you because you’ve shared your toilet paper for two years. Then you decide to watch The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel at high volume at 2 a.m. – with her Prime account. They get mad at you (duh!); You start out by using separate toilet rolls. Your friendship is over.
OK, maybe that’s an exaggeration, but you get it. Why be angry when you can be happy Taylor Swift said so. You can share your Prime benefits with a member of your household. wait for it … for free!
That’s true! Prime members can share certain benefits with another adult in their Amazon household. Now you can make it official instead of having “one night streams” (winks).

To share Prime benefits and digital content between adults, both adults need to link their accounts through Amazon Household and choose whether to share payment methods or have their own. Both adults can keep their personal account and enjoy the Prime benefits at the same time.
When creating an Amazon Household, you will be asked to review your settings for sharing content through the Family Library. If you don’t want to share some or some of the content, you don’t have to! There is no longer a view of the Prime Video history or the order history on Amazon Shopping. Nobody will find out that you ordered a tank top … for your teddy bear.
How to Share Your Amazon Prime Benefits:
- Go to your Amazon Prime membership on your phone or browser.
- Find the Share Your Key Benefits section.
- Choose Manage Household.
- Enter the name and email address of the person you want to share the benefits with.
- Click on Continue.
- You now need to agree to the terms and conditions and send the invitation. Your friend / family member has 14 days to accept the invitation.
You can only share the benefits listed below:
- FREE two-day main shipping
- Prime Now
- AmazonFresh (requires additional AmazonFresh subscription)
- Prime Video
- First reading
- First readings
- Amazon Photos (unlimited storage for photos and videos)

Discounts and Exclusive:
- Prime Early Access
- Prime Day access
- Great prices for subscriptions to Amazon Music Unlimited and Kindle FreeTime Unlimited
- Amazon Family: Up to 20% discount on subscriptions for diapers, baby food and more as well as 15% discount on completing baby registration (Tip: Don’t make a baby just because you get 20% discount on baby items; do this for child benefit! )
- 2% rewards every time you top up your Amazon.com gift card balance with a linked debit card on your checking account
To take advantage of the benefits, you and the other person must live in the same country or region and share a preferred marketplace to create an Amazon Household. This means that you will only get Prime for one country. That goes for every Prime user, so you won’t lose anything. Technically, you don’t have to share that
Remember that you and the other person must agree to “share wallets”. You choose how you want to do this during the setup process. Do not worry! Amazon promises to notify you when your friend puts your credit or debit card in their wallet – no pranks or, well … theft.
When things really change, you can stop sharing accomplishments with your household member as well. To do this, go to Manage Your Household and tap Remove.
