Have you been on the fence about getting Amazon Prime? I’ll confess, when the price was raised to $99/year I wasn’t sure, initially, that we’d keep it. But I use it all the time, from last-minute shopping convenience to free loans for our Kindles to enjoying Prime Steaming of shows I should probably be working instead of watching.

If you’ve been considering Prime but haven’t taken the plunge yet, do it today—instead of $99, today only they’re offering a year of Prime for just $72 through this link, making it even cheaper than the original $79 it used to be, years ago.

[Bonus: Even if you don’t grab Prime, they’re offering all 10 episodes of the first season of the Amazon-original series, Transparent, today, to everyone. Of course, I don’t know too many people who’re going to have time to watch all 10 episodes today, but there you go.]

I already paid my $99 because I’ve had Prime for years, but if you haven’t, this would be the day to grab it.

[Edited to add: The ravishingly gorgeous Corey points out that if you’re an existing member, you can purchase this as a gift… for yourself! Just set your existing account so that it doesn’t auto-renew, then send your gift on the expiration date. Thanks, Corey!]


  1. Is this like last year’s deal where you can renew by delaying the start date?

  2. Bummer -it says “new members”. Meanies.

  3. Mir, I have had Prime for years but there is a workaround to take advantage of this deal. I did it last year when they changed the price and was able to get one more year at the old price and it worked great. What you do is purchase Prime as a gift and send it to yourself on the date that your Prime is due to expire. You just need to change your Prime from auto renew to “not auto renew”. I just did this with the $72 deal, via your link, and it worked great. I will get the link on my renewal date (June 13, 2015) with the link to activate my new subscription.

  4. So, how do you change to “not auto renew’? I can’t find that button 🙁

  5. Thank you!!!
