Amazon has always been one to capitalize off of hype, and this is no different. From midnight ET to 11:59 PM PT on Friday, September 25, a one-year Amazon Prime membership will only cost you $67. Remember that the end is in Pacific Time, so the deal will be valid until 2:59 AM ET on Saturday. That’s a total $32 savings from the usual $99 price.
Why the weird number? Last night, Amazon’s original series “Transparent” had five wins at the 67th annual Emmys. Not only a great feather in Amazon’s streaming cap, the wins also serve as a great marketing tool for Prime memberships. This is a great way to promote their television production efforts and show people that they really are a contender in the television/movie streaming arena.
Amazon’s “Transparent” is an Amazon original comedy series about a transgender father coming out to his family. This was the second of Amazon’s programs to win an Emmy; the first being “Tumble Leaf.”
If you haven’t thought about signing up for Amazon Prime before or have been on the fence, now’s the time to pull the trigger. Divided over the 12-month membership period, Prime usually comes out to $8.25 a month. With the $67 promotion, that brings the service down to less than $5.60 a month. Not only is that less than the other most popular streaming services, Amazon Prime offers substantially more.
Streaming services are only a small part of Amazon Prime’s features. It also offers:
- Free two-day shipping on all eligible products (all 20 million of them)
- Unlimited music streaming
- Unlimited photo storage
- Early access to Lightning Deals
- Over 800,000 free e-books
- Access to Prime Day
- And more!
At this price, it would be crazy not to take the leap on an Amazon Prime membership. Now you just have to decide how much you should budget every month on all of the new things you’ll be buying on Amazon! Head on over to Amazon.com/TransparentPrime to take advantage of this great deal on Friday.
