Amazon Discounting Prime Memberships to $67 for 1 Day Only

Girl holding Amazon boxIf you’ve been considering giving Amazon Prime a try, now may be the time. This Friday, September 25, the e-tail giant will reduce the price of a one-year Amazon Prime membership to $67, down from its current $99 price. The offer is good only for 24 hours, and can only be redeemed by new customers who have never before tried Prime.

Amazon Prime members get free two-day shipping (even on Sunday), use of the Kindle Owners’ Lending Library, access to the Prime Music streaming service and unlimited cloud photo storage. There are special one-day-only sales for Prime members, too, though this year’s Prime Day sale was widely written off as a disappointment.

Prime members can also get their fill of the Amazon Instant Video streaming service, with popular TV shows and movies such as Downton Abbey, How I Met Your Mother, Teen Wolf, Transformers: Age of Extinction and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Prime Instant Video is also the home to a number of original series, including the Emmy-award winning Transparent. The next season of Amazon Originals launches October 9 with the “coming-of-age dramedy” Red Oaks.

This sale starts promptly at 12:00 AM Eastern on September 25 and ends at 11:59 PM. To get the discounted price, you’ll need to sign up through Amazon.com/TransparentPrime. And if you want to give Prime a try, Amazon is also offering a 30-day free trial

It is such a shame so many companies offer special promotions BUT forget there loyal customers.  My suggestion:  look else where….Amazon is not the only deal in the sky.

Unfair to current members

From Karen Thompson on October 03, 2015 :: 10:15 pm

As a long time Prime member I am insulted to not be offered the same deal for my renewal. Where are the rewards for loyalty? How about some free movie rentals?

Loyal Members

From Jan on September 25, 2015 :: 12:40 pm

Although all the new members who are signing up today for $67 are going to be really, really happy and loyal in the future, we current, previously loyal and happy Prime members outweigh the new guys tremendously, I suspect. To insult an overwhelming number of prior members by not offering them the deal as well is an enormous PR blunder.  The normal Prime price is insult enough already!!!!
