If you recently noticed a strange $151.57 charge from Amazon, you’re not alone. Many customers have been left scratching their heads and wondering about the reason behind this perplexing transaction. Here’s the deal about Amazon’s mysterious $151.57 charge.

Something fishy with your Amazon account: That mysterious $151.57 charge/h2>

Picture this: you browse through your credit card statement, and you suddenly find an unfamiliar charge of $151.57 from Amazon. Naturally, your first instinct is to think “WTF? I didn’t order anything adding up to $151.57!” and assume that your Amazon or credit card account has been hacked. But it hasn’t.

Then you think about whether you made any recent purchases or subscribed to any services on Amazon that could explain the charge. It’s worth noting that sometimes Amazon combines multiple purchases into one charge, so it’s possible that the $151.57 charge represents a compilation of several smaller purchases. So you go over to Amazon to look at your order history on Amazon’s website, or you contact their customer service for a detailed breakdown of the charge.

While it’s essential to be vigilant and cautious about potential fraudulent activities, it’s also important to first consider the most obvious answer: that in fact the charge is legit. For instance, if you share your Amazon account with family members, it’s possible that someone made a purchase without informing you. Or, again, it’s possible that the $151.57 charge is the result of several smaller orders being put through together on your credit card. But, in fact, that’s not what happened in the case of the $151.57 charge.

Unraveling the mystery of Amazon’s mysterious $151.57 charge

Here’s what that charge is: That $151.75 charge is the new Amazon Prime annual rate of $139.00, plus tax. Yep. As we told you last month, an Amazon Prime membership went up to a whopping $139.00. PLUS they are adding ads to Amazon Prime Video, unless you pay extra!

Now, Amazon will be the first to tell you that you get all kinds of great things with your Prime membership, and if you are someone who uses Amazon all the time (and who among us isn’t?), then the cost of a Prime membership is still better than Amazon nickel and diming you over delivery fees and other things which are included in your Amazon Prime membership. But still, it’s not as if Amazon isn’t raking it in right now. Or, you know, putting the extra revenue towards employee benefits.

So, at what point will it be too much such that you will cancel your Amazon Prime membership?
