Amazon Prime used to just be a service that offered free 2-day shipping on thousands of items in exchange for $79 per year.
These days Prime membership still includes free shipping. But it also includes access to millions of songs through Amazon Prime Music, thousands of movies and TV shows through Prime Instant Video, and other services including cloud photo storage, eBook borrowing, and more.
The annual price went up to $99 last year. But AMazon is running a one-day promotion this weekend: New members can sign up for just $72 on Saturday, January 24th.
Oh yeah, and if you have no interest in paying a penny, you can also stream Amazon’s TV series Transparent for free that day. That’s the excuse for this promotion: Transparent won the prize for best musical or comedy series at the 72nd Golden Globes recently.
