You’ll get perks like free 2-day shipping, streaming movies and music, and more.
Folks who recently paid their $99 membership fee might be able to get a refund. Then, purchase a new membership at the discounted rate. And it’s unclear if they’ll honor the deal for long-term subscribers or gift memberships.
I’ll explain more about the limited-time offer!
Amazon Prime Membership Discount
Link: Amazon Prime
- Free 2-day shipping on items sold by Amazon
- Unlimited movies and TV shows from their collection
- Unlimited music streaming
- Unlimited storage space for your photos
- Early access to sales and deals
- 1 free Kindle e-book a month
These perks are why Million Mile Secrets team members Harlan, Jasmin, Keith, and I have Prime memberships!
It’s also great for folks who travel. Because you can download movies and TV shows to your personal device and stream them on-the-go!
And when you fly JetBlue, you can log-in to your Amazon Prime account to watch movies and TV shows through their Fly-Fi system.
Memberships typically cost $99 per year. But starting Friday, September 23, 2016, it should only cost $68.
There are no official details from Amazon yet. But the Amazon Prime membership discount is expected to only be available for a few days!
What If You Already Have an Amazon Prime Membership?
It’s unclear if you can extend your current membership with this deal if you already subscribe to Amazon Prime.
There was a similar promotion last year. But it was only available for new memberships and NOT gift subscriptions. So we’ll have to wait and see what the exact terms are this year.
If you can use the deal for a gift membership, it might be possible to purchase one for yourself. And then use it to extend your own subscription at the discounted rate. I’ll keep an eye on it and let you know if it’s possible!
Pay With Your Discover it Card for up to 10% Cash Back
Link: Discover it
If you’re a new Discover it cardmember, you’ll get 10% cash back on purchases from Amazon, including Amazon Prime subscriptions! That’s because Amazon is a 5% cash back quarterly category.
New cardholders get 5% cash back on up to $1,500 in combined category purchases when your monthly billing statement closes. And they’ll match the cash back you’ve earned after the 12th billing cycle, for a total of 10% cash back. If you already have the card, you can get 5% cash back this quarter and next when you activate the bonus.
That’s an amazing perk! Team member Harlan used his Discover it card to get ~$2,200 in cash back last year!
It’s rumored that you can buy a discount Amazon Prime membership for only $68, starting September 23, 2016. The promotion is only expected to last a few days. Normally, membership costs $99 per year.
You’ll enjoy lots of perks with Amazon Prime, including free 2-day shipping on items sold by Amazon, and unlimited streaming movies and music!
Folks with a Discover it card earn 5% back at Amazon through the end of 2016 (when they register for 5X category bonuses). And new Discover it cardmembers will get all their cash back matched after their first 12 months, for a total of 10% back!
Let me know if you purchase a discount Amazon Prime membership!
