Every now and then, Amazon surprises us with discounted membership fees for their popular service, Amazon Prime. Last September, the company slashed fees to celebrate its Emmy wins, and now it's cutting costs again to celebrate big wins at the Golden Globes.
If you're unfamiliar with Amazon Prime, the service typically costs around $99 per year and comes with a lot of great perks. The top features include, free 2-day shipping on items from Amazon.com, access to Prime Video and Music, and even a lending library for Kindle owners.
Amazon also adds new features to Prime membership. In fact, it recently announced that Prime membership would give customers special discounts on video game purchases, including new releases.
If you've been thinking about signing up for Amazon Prime, this is a great weekend to do it. From 9 p.m. PT Friday until 11:59 p.m. Sunday night, an Amazon Prime membership will only cost $73 for your first year.
The only downside is that the discount only applies to new members. However, existing members can still snag this deal by using a little work-around. If you purchase the subscription as a gift, you can then save it to use when your current subscription expires.
