Now Live: Amazon Prime for Just $79

Amazon is offering a one-day sale on their Prime membership for just $79 for a year, instead of the standard $99 fee.

Direct Link for Prime Signup (this is our Amazon affiliate link; thanks for using if you do)

You can even pay with your Amazon gift card balance. Otherwise, use your Discover card for 5% back or your Amazon credit card for 5% back.

This offer started at midnight 11/18, and will continue until 11:59 pm PT tonight. We covered the deal a couple days ago; reposting since it’s live now.

This deal is only for new members. So long as your previous membership expired, you are considered a new member and the deal will work.

If your membership is renewing soon, you might consider opening another Prime membership under a spouse/family-member’s account and locking in the discount that way. (Some have even had success chatting with Amazon and getting buying the $79 rate the coming year with getting a prorated refund on the remaining membership from the year before. YMMV.) Purchasing this deal also worked for a returning customer.

Aside from the well-known two day shipping benefit, Prime also gets you access to their video and music streaming service, Kindle library, Prime Pantry, and more.

The $79 price just worked for me as a returning member! My membership ended 3 weeks ago. Hopefully it works for others who also waited!

If you’re a current customer though with an active subscription, your prorated amount to cancel vs what you may potentially renew at and the risk of not being recognized as a new customer, just be careful. My Prime membership just renewed a month ago 🙁

this would almost tempt me IF they’d let me use Amazon gift cards to pay for the membership fee. Has that policy been changed?

After going the whole year w/o prime (subscription ran out in Jan),
I jumped back in with this $79 offer.

Although a good deal, the Amazon Prime sale still doesn’t justify it for me. Their free Prime movies are mostly violent or inane entertainment junk. Time better spent elsewhere. Prime free shipping encourages buying things you don’t really need. So a pass from me.

There is a 7.11$ tax charge which makes this not so good deal.

If I did this and shared my PRIME with my brother would he be able to use all the features of PRIME or will his PRIME be limited?

Not all features can be shared AFAIK.
