Today only, Amazon is selling it’s Prime Membership for just $67, a heavy discount on the regular $99 price for a full year of membership. This is a great deal that I’m taking advantage of myself and I recommend others do as well.
I’ve written about Amazon in various forms before, usually as a way to manufacture spend and earn tons of points. I even have Amazon listed as it’s own category on my blog. For those that aren’t aware, Amazon Prime is beyond just the free 2 day shipping that it used to be. Here’s a list of benefits with the annual membership:
- Free two day shipping on many items
- Access to over a million songs
- Amazon Prime Video streaming (TV shows and Movies)
- Unlimited cloud photo storage
- Other less interesting benefits (free select Kindle books, etc.)
For $67 for the first year, this is a great value in my opinion. You can buy all kinds of things on Amazon, and the 5x opportunities are easy to find with grocery stores and office supply store gift cards. The reason for the sale, by the way, is that Amazon’s original series Transparent won 5 Emmy awards.
