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.
Here are some of the day’s best deals (including a preview of one of Saturday’s best deals).
- Amazon Prime for $72 (for new members) – Amazon (Jan 24th only)

Lenovo Q190’s sold out status doesn’t appear to have changed since yesterday. The useless new coupon code is just confusing (and the webpage still shows the old coupon code).
I’m still on my 6-month free trial of Amazon Prime as a student. Once the trial ends, it’s only 50% of the price per year as long as I remain in college.
On a related note, it would be nice for Amazon to offer music streaming and digital music downloads in Canada, as opposed to just selling the physical discs.
How do you enroll? Do you have to be in college? I will start fall semester But I have student email and I’m taking dual credit classes
The student email is all you need to verify your student status. Here’s the link to the signup page: http://www.amazon.ca/gp/student/signup/info
