While the subscription membership fee for Amazon Prime has gone up, shipping company ShopRunner is giving consumers a one year trial period to their promotion for their two day shipping option Tech Spot reported Friday.

Consumers can utilize the program at over 85 stores such as Dominos, Newegg, RadioShack, Tiger Direct, American Eagle Outfitters, Timberland, and Tommy Hilfiger.

Customers can buy as much as they want, and send the product back to the store they bought it from at no charge.

When it's time to decide if they should start to pay for the service, customers will pay less than $79 according to the company Tech Spot reported.

Those who have Amazon Prime will be required to show that they have a membership 24 hours after they enrolled in the program.

Amazon Prime will cost $99 annually for consumers who currently have the service, up $20 from its original price according to the retailer's website.

"For the first time since it was introduced nine years ago, the price of Prime is going up," the company said in a statement on their website.

They will fund this when it's time to renew the program, while it will cost $49 for students.

Those with the service are still expected to be given all Amazon Prime features such as limitless two-day shipping at no cost for orders that qualify, limitless streaming with Prime Instant Video, and swapping books via consumers with Kindle's via the product's lending library. 

One price staying the same is Amazon's Prime Fresh grocery delivery service at $299 the online retailer reported.

The service which accommodates people who spend $79 annually is available in San Francisco, and Los Angeles following 30-days of usage at no cost. Current members can get their money back proportionately if they elect to use the service.
