SWMBO and I have had separate Prime accounts for years. Now being all marriaged up and with my Prime student discount going away, the second account is an unnecessary expense. I know you can combine existing Prime accounts but can the the identities retain unique logins, payment methods, etc, or are they now treated as a single identity with a shared payment method, Prime Video wish list, etc? Amazon's FAQ and a cursory application of Google Fu don't give clear answers.

I think it is a single account and you have to pick payment, shipping and other things each time.

It goes to single account and combined address books, payment choices and watch lists.

Wife and I went through the same thing after we discovered that during a deployment we had both signed up for Prime (oops).

I kept my account login so I could buy her birthday presents without her getting an e-mail notification, but have to pay shipping now.

One Prime account=One login credential.

Okay, some more digging turned up Amazon Household. If both people have an Amazon account and one of them is Prime, you can link the accounts and share Prime benefits while retaining separate account identities.

If this works like BI described, it will be perfect.
