Million Mile SecretsRumor: Purchase Amazon Prime Membership for Only $68Million Mile Secrets Team

Signing-up for credit cards through partner links earns us a commission. Here’s our full Advertising Policy.

Doctor of Credit reports this Friday, September 23, 2016, you may be able to buy an Amazon Prime membership for $68.  And save $31 off the normal price of $99.

You’ll get perks like free 2-day shipping, streaming movies and music, and more.

Amazon has NOT confirmed details of the Amazon Prime membership discount yet.  But rumors are you’ll have 3 to 5 days to purchase the cheaper membership.

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.

Amazon Prime Membership Discount
For a Limited Time, You Can Save Money on an Amazon Prime Membership! You’ll Pay $68 Instead of $99!

I’ll explain more about the limited-time offer!

Amazon Prime Membership Discount

Link:   Amazon Prime

Amazon Prime is an annual subscription service from Amazon that gets you:

  • 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!

Amazon Prime Membership Discount
Amazon Prime Members Get Access to Unlimited Music and Movie Streaming, Which Can Come in Handy for Entertainment During Your Travels!

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 Cash Back for up to 10% Cash Back

Link:   Discover it® Cash Back

If you’re a new Discover it Cash Back 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 Cash Back card to get ~$2,200 in cash back last year!

Bottom Line

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 Cash Back 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!

Well, it’s now Monday the 26th. ’bout time for a mia culpa, don’t ya think? (along the lines of how bloggers led each other off the proverbial cliff, or would that be violating some sort of code between cooperating travel bloggers?)

Yes, you duly noted it was a “rumor” not as yet confirmed by Amazon.

But then you proceeded with great energy to build a post around the offer as if it was true.

Yes, so far just a rumor!

Guess it was just that, a rumor!!!!

Hey, but it filled a blog 🙂
