Why are Amazon Prime eligible products more expensive than non-Prime ones? (Part 2)

Episode 913 (1:06:03)

Louis from Hollywood, CA

Louis says you get 1 free month of Amazon prime, but to take advantage of it you need to buy something that's eligible for Prime. He's noticed that some of the lower-cost items available on Prime cost more than those that aren't Prime eligible. Leo says they need to make a profit somehow, and that's just the way they offset the cost of some of the products with a lower profit margin.
