Amazon is Lowering the Price of Prime for Today Only
By Alvin Ward
At this point, it's kind of crazy not to have Amazon Prime. The yearly subscription service comes with endless perks, from free shipping to streaming excellent shows like Transparent. If the $99 price tag seems like just too much for the ability to have almost anything in existence (truly anything) mailed to you in two days, we have some good news for you: For today only, Amazon is lowering the price of Prime by 20 percent.
Friday, November 18, Prime will only be $79 starting at 12 a.m. ET until 11:59 p.m. PT. To get the deal, sign up on this landing page. Amazon launched the deal in celebration of its new show, The Grand Tour. On top of getting to watch the automotive show, Prime users also get Amazon Prime Video, Prime Music, Prime Reading, Prime Fresh, and Prime Photos. It's going to be hard to see the TV over all the loot that's going to get mailed to your door.
