How to Add Multiple Accounts to Your Prime Membership
Why this is good to know:
If you didn’t know, you can have multiple accounts connected to one Prime membership. This means all the accounts on the Prime membership will get free Prime shipping (plus some other perks) while only paying one yearly price!
And no – you don’t have to use the same login! That means you can buy presents, weird stuff, etc. without your other family members seeing your purchases!
I personally have two accounts hooked up to my Amazon Prime account so that I can get double the deals (because sometimes promo codes only work once per account)!
How many people can be on the account?
You have two adults on your account (this includes your own – so AKA only one other adult added to your account), 4 teens on your account, and 4 child profiles on your account. Each type of age-group account has different functions.
Note: Some Amazon Prime perks are ONLY available to the main account holder.
How to add them to your account:
Note: Does not work for student accounts.
Adding someone to your account is super easy as long as you have the correct page to go to. Click the button below and it should take you to the page to add someone to your account (you must be logged in for it to work).
Once you click on the button and it takes you to the “Manage Your Household” page, you should see options to add adults, teens, and/or children to your account.
If the button above does not take you to the app and you prefer to edit everything in the app here are the instructions to get to this page on your account:
1. Click on the hamburger menu at the bottom right hand side of the Amazon app home page (this is the three lines).
2. Click on the "account" button.
3. Under "Account settings," click on the "Manage your Household" button.
4. You will see 4 drop down menus. Click on the drop down menu labeled "Manage Your Household Members." From there it will let you add accounts.
Different accounts and what they can do:
Adults (18 years and older) – Adults can share digital content and if they are Prime members, Prime benefits.
Teens (13-17 years old) – Teen accounts require a parental approval for orders. Teens may also access certain Prime benefits if their parents are a Prime member.
Children (12 years and younger) – Parents can add children to a Household to manage parental controls on Fire tablets and Kindle e-readers through Kindle FreeTime. Children can access digital content that their parent allows on their child’s device but are not enabled to shop.
