Amazon Prime usually costs $99 for the year. For the cost of your membership, you get free two day shipping on all prime-eligible items on Amazon. You also get oodles (and I do mean OODLES i.e. thousands) of movies to stream with Amazon Prime. Also TV shows. And Music. LOTS of unlimited, ad-free music. And ….. Unlimited Photo storage.
(With the Amazon Video app, you can instantly stream all your Amazon Prime movies/tv shows right to your iPad.)
For this weekend, Prime will cost only $73 dollars for NEW members. Starting 9 PM Pacific Time on Friday night, and ending at 11:59 PM Pacific time on Sunday night.
Why $73? (Seems like such a random number…… ?) It is in honor of the 73rd annual Golden Globes at which an original Amazon series, Mozart in the Jungle, won two awards last week.
I’ve been a member for years, so I can’t take advantage of this offer. But if you’ve been considering giving Amazon Prime a try, this weekend would be a thrifty time to jump on the bandwagon.
