Amazon Prime has quickly become a commodity for folks who use Amazon’s services often, offering access to movies and shows, cloud storage, music, and, of course, fast and free delivery when buying things from the online retail giant.
The yearly $99 subscription price might be too high for some, though, and so Amazon is known to knock off the price of its service for a limited time to swing a few more subscriptions their way. To that end, Amazon has announced that beginning Friday, January 15, at 9:00 PM PST/12:00 AM EST, one year of Amazon Prime will be available for $73.
The sale ends on Sunday, January 17, at 11:59 PM local time, so you only have a limited time to jump on board if you’ve been considering signing up for Prime.
Amazon’s discounting Prime for a reason: Two Golden Globe wins for its show, Mozart In the Jungle. And for anyone that doesn’t want to sign up for Prime but still wants to check out the show, Amazon will stream the first two seasons for free this weekend only.
