Given the latest news and impending price hike I find the advice from MSE puzzling. Suggesting that people who will not be able to accommodate the price increase should consider cancelling their subscription as they prioritise in the current circumstance makes a great deal of sense, but then I’m troubled with the other option. Cancel now before the price increase and immediately take out an annual membership for £79 thereby beating the price hike for 12 months.The question I have is if I’m finding it very hard to find the additional £1 a month where do you think I’m going to find £79 to make an upfront payment. 
I am a great advocate of Martin and MSE but at times I do find some of his comments baffling. Thankfully though the greater majority of the time his advice is more than helpful

    Its merely saying that if you are a yearly payer for your Prime, it would make sense to cancel and re take out before the increase. 

    Its cheaper yearly anyway than paying monthly but of course, many people cannot find £79 upfront so rely on monthly payments and will sadly have to accept the increase in September.

    Although Prime is a luxury so if i were really having to count the pennies i wouldnt be renewing anyway,
