How to Add a Member to Your Amazon Prime Household

For most people, having an Amazon Prime membership is a great investment because of the benefits it offers. Chances are, someone else in your household also has an Amazon account. However, paying for multiple Prime memberships can get expensive.

Luckily, Amazon Household makes it really easy to share your Prime membership with other members of your household.

In this article, I’m going to walk you through the process of setting up an Amazon Household account and sharing its perks with others.

So, what exactly is Amazon Household? Well, as the name suggests, it’s a way to share your Prime membership with family members who live in your household. It’s important not to confuse it with Prime Pantry, a service that lets you buy household items without leaving your home.

With Amazon Household, you can add an adult and up to four children to your household. This means that both adults in the household will have access to all the Prime perks, such as Prime Photos, Prime Video, free two-day shipping, Prime Reading, Prime Music, Audible Channels, and early access to Prime Day sales. Additionally, you can share your digital purchases, like audiobooks, movies, ebooks, apps, games, and TV shows, with each other. It also makes it easy to manage child profiles linked to the primary account.

Now, there are a few things you need to know before adding a member to your Amazon Household. First, you need to have a Prime membership yourself. The discounted Student Prime deal won’t work for this. You also need to have your own Amazon account, but other members don’t need to have a Prime subscription. Only the primary account holder needs to have the membership.

When you add another adult to your household, you’ll also be linking your billing information and payment options. This means the other adult will have access to your credit cards and other payment methods. So, be careful who you add to your household. It’s meant for family members, not friends, roommates, or colleagues. However, you can add a new payment method to your Amazon Prime account and ask the other household member to use it instead.

There’s also a time restriction on joining or creating households. After adding a member, neither the primary account nor the other member can join or create another household for 180 days. But there’s a grace period during which the recently removed adult account can be reactivated if there was a mistake.

Now, let’s talk about how to add members to your Amazon Household. It’s a simple and straightforward process that won’t take long. Here’s what you need to do:

1. Hover over “Accounts & Lists” and select “My Account” from the drop-down menu.

2. From the page that opens, go to “Shopping programs and rentals” and select “Amazon Household.”

3. Select “Add Adult” and enter the login information of the adult’s account.

4. Click “Continue” and then hit the “Agree and continue” button.

5. Select the things you want to share, like apps/games, audiobooks, and ebooks, and press “Continue.”

6. Hit the “Send Invite” button.

The other adult will receive an invitation email to join your Household. To join, they’ll need to select “Get Prime benefits,” then “Continue,” and press the “Agree and Continue” button.

If you want to add a child or teen account, you can go to “Accounts & Lists,” then “Your Account,” then “Shopping programs and rentals,” and select “Add a Child” or “Add a Teen” instead. For each child or teen, you’ll need to input their email/mobile number and birth date, create their profile, and set order approvals.

Now, let me explain how to share content through Family Library. When you add members to your Amazon Household, you can share digital content with them using the Family Library feature. Here’s how you do it:

1. Hover over “Accounts & Lists” and select “Manage Your Content and Devices.”

2. Click on the “Content” tab at the top and select the type of digital content you want to share.

3. Select the content you want to share and click the “Add to Library” button at the top. You can also press the “Manage Family Library” button next to the content to share it.

4. Select the person in your Household you want to share the content with and hit the “Make Changes” button.

That’s it! After this, the other members of your Household will be able to access the content you shared with them.

Now, let’s talk about removing a member from your Amazon Household. It’s a simple process, and you can remove both adults and children from your Household. Here’s how:

1. Log into your Amazon account on a web browser and hover over “Accounts & Lists.”

2. Select “Your Account” and click on “Shopping programs and rentals.”

3. Click on “Amazon Household” and navigate to “Manage Your Household.”

4. Find the member you want to remove and select “Remove” under their name on the list.

5. Hit the “Remove adult” button.

For children and teens, select “Edit” under their name and press the “Remove Child/Teen from Household” button.

Finally, let’s talk about how Amazon Household can save you money. By sharing your Prime membership benefits with your family members, you can make the most of the perks it offers. However, keep in mind that sharing your membership also means sharing your payment details. Also, remember the 180-day waiting period before joining or creating another Household. So, think carefully before adding anyone.

I hope this guide has been helpful in understanding how to set up an Amazon Household account and share its perks with others. Enjoy your shared Prime membership!
