Our Verdict

I don’t see anything that restricts you from doing this and getting the standard sign up bonus of $100-$150. Not really sure the advantages of business prime vs normal prime, even after reading the landing page.

Tempting. I might jump if the Biz Prime included Prime Video 🙂 Looks like it doesn’t.


OK I had the amazon biz account for a few months via my work email. I can tell you this, they are removing all the orange promos from the product page when I was logged in with my amazon biz account. I took screen shots and might still have them somewhere. bottom line I am not sure if they still do that since converted back to personal account int he summer. but keep in that in mind.


Orange promos?

At least Eli is aware of what he is talking about.


I did this a few months ago when the credit was $125. Received the credit instantly. Upgraded my prime account to Biz Prime with one free year included. Also received a prorated credit back for my personal prime since I upgraded to biz, but I would say thats YMMV.
