On Friday, September 25, 2015 starting at 12:01 AM ET, and ending at 11:59 PM PT, you can save a cool $32 bucks on a 1-year Amazon Prime membership. For 1-day only, you can get Prime for $67, instead of the regular $99. Makes for a great time to buy a membership as we head into the holiday shopping season. The price is actually lower then what Amazon sold a Prime membership for prior to the rate increase to $99/year. Sign Up Here.
Why the odd number of $67? It’s in reference to the 67th Emmy Awards which saw Amazon win 5 awards this past Sunday. A bit gimmicky for sure, but a great way to save $32 if you were considering Prime anyways.
UPDATE: I have gotten a lot of questions about who is eligible for this price, and unfortunately, this offer is for “New Prime Members” only.
