3Amazon.com has updated a policy that limits how many people can share the benefits of each user’s Prime subscription.

Originally, Amazon Prime members were allowed to share shipping benefits with up to 4 family members.

The updated policy: “Free trial or paid Amazon Prime members can share certain Amazon Prime benefits with ONE other adult by forming an Amazon Household.”

Prime membership costs $99 a year. Along with free shipping on most items and exclusive deals, a subscription also provides access to streaming video and music services, plus the Kindle lending library.

5The Toronto Blue Jays made a big splash last week when they made the trade for pitcher David Price from the Detroit Tigers.

And now fans are paying the Price (get it!?)

There’s been a spike in the secondary ticket market. The past holiday Monday, Price pitched his first game in a Jays uniform.

Tickets to Monday’s game were averaging US$37 each before Price was traded to the Blue Jays on July 30, according to seatgeek.com. However, after Price was announced as Toronto’s starter for Monday’s game the average price rocketed to $69.
