Amazon Celebrates Emmy Wins By Lowering Cost Of Prime To $67


Anyone interested in signing up for Amazon Prime should do so on Sept. 25. That's because the company just announced that it's cutting the cost of Prime down to $67 for anyone who signs up on that day.

Amazon made the announcement today in honor of its original series Transparent taking home five awards at this past weekend's Emmys.

If you're interested in grabbing this deal, you can do so on Amazon's Prime sign-up page on Sept. 25: but remember, the deal is only available for 24 hours. Also, this discount only applies to those who don't already have Prime, so existing Prime members still pay the normal price of $99 per year.

Signing up for Amazon Prime gives you access to the Emmy-winning Transparent, Amazon's series about a man who becomes a woman. The show follows this woman as she deals with changes in her life, as well as how those changes affect those around her. Star Jeffrey Tambor took home the Emmy Sunday night for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series, while the series' creator, Jill Solloway, took home an Emmy for Outstanding Directing in a Comedy Series for one of the show's episodes.

In addition to those two Emmys, the show also brought home three Creative Arts awards.

Amazon Prime also has some new and original content coming later this year, including the Ridley Scott-produced The Man in the High Castle, based on the 1962 Philip K. Dick novel of the same name. The pilot episode for The Man in the High Castle proved a hit with both Amazon viewers and critics alike earlier this year, so Amazon ordered a full series. The first season of The Man in the High Castle debuts on the service in November.

Amazon also has other popular original series to offer for members of its Prime service, including Mozart in the Jungle (starring Bernadette Peters), Alpha House (with John Goodman) and Hand of God (starring Ron Perlman).

Of course, Amazon Prime comes with additional perks, including free two-day shipping for orders that include many items available through the company's retail site. Same-day delivery is also available in certain markets for Prime members. Prime members also get early access to deals on the website – 30 minutes before those deals get released to the general public.

Prime also allows members to rent many books for free from its Kindle Lending program and stream music from its Prime Music offerings.
