I have an Amazon prime account. As it is, DH just uses it to buy things. But, he wants to buy me a Christmas gift from Amazon and doesn't want me to see the purchases. I think from what I've read that he can create an account and link to my prime account and I won't see his orders. I do have 1 question.

If we don't share payment methods does that mean that he does not get the benefit of Prime shipping? If so, then we probably have to share payment methods.
DW and I share the Prime Account and have separate payment methods. No problems encountered. I don't see what she buys and she doesn't see my purchases and we both get Prime shipping.

I have a prime account that my son in law shared with me via the amazon household program. We both log in using our individual e mails and passwords. Nothing is shared included purchase information or credit cards. We live in two different households. My daughter uses her husbands log in info to shop. My husband uses my log in information to shop. Works fine.
