The ease of Amazon shopping is becoming more affordable for more families.

Amazon has announced that the company will be offering its Prime membership at a discounted price of $5.99 a month to low-income families receiving government assistance.

Prime usually costs $10.99 a month, which comes out to about $132 a year, or $99 a year if paid annually. Right now, families who have Electronic Benefits Transfer cards—used for food stamps through SNAP, WIC, and TANF benefits—will be able to secure discounted Prime membership for $5.99 a month, which comes out to about $50 per year.
