I don't think so. Just check when her Prime ends and then sign up when hers expires.

You can sign up for Prime and share your shipping benefits with her account. You cannot share streaming.

Figured it out pretty easy. Google helped...However, if you create a Household account I believe it is. You can login under your account, but have to be login to the primary account holder's account first.

I don't see why not. But your fiance should have a chat with Amazon on how to setup a household Prime account where both of you share everything.

I tried to do that recently, but once I realized that I had to enter a credit card number, I changed my mind. Amazon does not let you have a Prime account unless you provide a credit card number, which makes no sense to me since I have plenty of credit from Amazon gift cards on my account to pay for Prime.

Amazon changed the Prime sharing last August. It used to be you can not share video streaming, but can share the Prime free shipping with up to 4 other people.

Now Prime accounts are "Household account". You can invite one other adult to be in your "household", and they will get access to the Amazon Prime video streaming (using their own login). If you are already a Prime user (i.e. renewal is not up yet), you can manually switch over to be a household account, else it won't do it until you are up for your annual renewal.

OP, if you want to be the one to pay for the annual fee, just wait until her current Prime membership expires. Then sign up for Prime on your account, then invite her to your household to share streaming.

This is correct. One downside is that anyone added to your household account also has access to your payment methods, so they can purchase stuff with your on file payment methods.

It is really sad, when you can not trust somebody in your household today, but I assume it does happen, else NHDave would not have mentioned it.

I assume *in your household* really means *in YOUR household* ...

Kids using your Prime household account to stream video comes to mind. Would you want them having full access to your payment methods?

College sons use ours to stream as well as Netflix, nfl ticket app, etc.....if your sharing person can not be trusted with your credit card information, why are you sharing anything?
