An Amazon Prime subscription costs EUR 7.99 per month. But millions of Germans can save 50 percent – without possibly knowing it!
Inexpensive Amazon Prime subscription with GEZ exemption
What many do not know: Amazon has been offering a campaign for financially weak households in Germany and Austria for a long time. If you meet one of two criteria, you can get the subscription for EUR 3.99 instead of EUR 7.99 per month and thus save half. One way to get the discount on the Amazon Prime subscription is to present an exemption from the license fee. In order to be exempt from broadcasting fees (commonly known as GEZ), one must receive one of the following social benefits:
Unemployment benefit II or social allowance support for subsistence according to SGB XII (Chapter 3) and according to the Federal Supply Act (BVG) (§§ 27a or 27d) Basic security in old age and in the case of reduced earning capacity (Chapter 4 SGB XII) Benefits according to the Federal Training Assistance Act (BAföG), Vocational training allowance, training allowance according to §§ 122ff. SGB III, if the recipients do not live with their parentsBenefits under the Asylum Seekers Benefits ActBlind assistanceCare allowance under state legislationCare assistance under SGB XII (Chapter 7) or care assistance as a benefit of war victim welfare under the BGPCare allowances under the Burden Equalization Act (LAG) (§ 267 para. 1)

With this exemption, those affected who live in Germany can then verify themselves at Amazon and, after successful verification, receive the subscription at half price.

Discount also possible with social pass

In addition to being exempt from broadcasting fees, users can also verify the Amazon discount with a social pass and secure a discounted Prime subscription. This is given to people who meet one of the following requirements:
Recipients of benefits under SGB II (unemployment benefit II / Hartz IV) Recipients of subsistence allowance under SGB XII (social assistance) Recipients of basic security in old age and with reduced earning capacity under SGB XII Recipients of benefits under the Asylum Seekers Benefits Act Severely disabled people with a degree of disability of at least 80% a severely disabled child (degree of disability of at least 50%), recipients of housing benefit with at least three children entitled to child benefit, families and people with a net income below the garnishment exemption limit (for 1 person below 1080 euros, for 2 people below 1480 euros, for 3 people below 1710 euros, …)
Regardless of the type of verification, Amazon grants the discount on the Prime subscription for a maximum period of 12 months. After that, customers must submit the application again.
