Amazon Prime subscriptions include six months of The Washington Post

Amazon Prime members can add one more perk to the list of items that the annual subscription gets them. The online retailer announced today that Prime now includes six months of unlimited access to The Washington Post Digital Edition which usually costs $10/month. After the trial period is up, members are still privy to a reduced rate of $4/month. It should come as no surprise that the retailer and the newspaper are in cahoots as Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos purchased the media outlet in 2013. What's more, Bezos & Co. have been keen on offering access to The Washington Post in the past, bundling it with Kindle Fire tablets.
