Let's assume so.

Prime promises Free two day delivery (for prime eligible products). If free delivery implies increasing the price . . . than it's not free.* As it is, your hundred-dollar or so fee is to their advantage since you are now more likely to buy from them because of prime. So, in essence, you paid them for the privilege of being motivated to buying more from them.


* Don't pay any attention to the man behind the curtain.
