-It looks like Amazon won't be offering a discount on Prime at this time.
Rumor has it that Amazon will be discounting their 1 Year Prime Membership to just $68 starting on Friday September 23, 2016. Last year for the 67th
Emmy's they won 5 Emmy's for their original series Transparent. They then discounted the price to $67, so following that trend we're hoping for a $68
membership. If you're not familiar with Prime or you're on the fence about purchasing Prime, here's a few things that you receive with your membership.
2-day Shipping: The shipping threshold for most items is $49, but with a membership shipping is not only free but it's also 2-day shipping.
Prime Video: This service offers free streaming of movies and TV shows. If you're thinking about cutting the cord this could be a great option for you! They not only offer popular shows but also offer their own original series as well.
Prime Music: Stream songs from more than a million different playlists, plus the best part is that there are no ads!
Video Game Savings: To compete with Best Buy's Gamers Club, Amazon introduced a savings program for their Prime Members on video games. If you're a member you can save 20% on new release video games. You do have to purchase a pre-order or purchase it within two weeks of it's release to qualify so it may not always be the best deal.
Audible Channels: Prime Members receive free access to audio series and playlists, which is normally $60 a year. This seems to be a newer benefit of the membership but if you enjoy listening to podcasts or books through Audible it's definitely beneficial.
Additional Discounts: There are a lot more things that the Prime Membership offers such as 30 minute early access to lightning deals even on Black Friday! You will also receive exclusive discounts on select products, access to Amazon Elements products, and exclusive savings. Even if you only plan on using a few of these benefits the savings can add up quickly.
In the last couple of years we've only seen Amazon discount the price of Prime once a year, so if you're still not sure keep that in mind! If you're still not sold on purchasing a membership you can also sign up for a free 30-day membership here!
Thanks for Visiting and Happy Shopping!
