I have written a number of times about the advantages of Amazon Prime. (Click here to see a list of my past articles that mentioned Amazon Prime.) If you are interested in joining Amazon’s wildly popular Prime service, you might want to know that Amazon is discounting the offering by 20% ($99 to $79) this Friday only, November 18, in conjunction with the exclusive premier of The Grand Tour.
Prime usually costs $99 dollars per year, but on Friday starting at 12:00 a.m. Eastern US Time and ending at 11:59 p.m. Pacific Time, it will cost $79 for the year for new members.
Here’s a quick summary of some of the best Prime perks:
- Free two-day shipping.
- Access to Prime Video, which houses “thousands of movies and TV shows.” These include both licensed titles and Amazon’s original series like “Transparent,” “The Man in the High Castle,” “Mozart in the Jungle,” and so on.
- Access to Prime Music, which lets you stream “more than two million” songs.
Photo storage via Prime Photos.
- Access to a library of ebooks via Prime Reading.
