amazon prime

If you have been deciding whether or not you want to join Amazon Prime, this is your chance! You can join for $67 this Friday, 9/25.

Prime is normally $99 per year and we rarely see deals on it so this is huge savings. With the sale, it is like paying $5.58 per month.

What It Includes:

-Free 2-Day Shipping On Millions of Items
-Unlimited Instant Steaming of Amazon Instant Watch
-Borrow Kindle Books for Free
-Unlimited Steaming of Prime Music
-Cloud Storage

For my family, the free 2-day shipping makes it worth having Prime by itself. All those episodes of Shaun The Sheep are just icing on the cake.

Deal will be available 9/25 only.

Already Have Prime? You can gift yourself the $67 membership.

You’ll gift yourself the membership. When confirming the gift tell it to start from the day after your membership expires and make sure you turn off auto-renew.

See current Amazon deals.

      Hmmm…wondering if this is good on renewals too.

      • Tina

        I was wondering the same.

      • ShannonK

        Me too. Before the last price hike, I was able to buy a “gift subscription” and gift it to myself and achedule it to be delivered a day before my Prime expired. Then when it arrived, I just renewed my membership using that “gift” subscription email.

        to start from the day after your membership expires and make sure you
        turn off auto-renew.”

        • Amber Boggess

          Are you supposed to turn off auto-renew before or after you gift it to yourself?

        • Housewife101

          So I can cancel my subscription ( I can’t turn off auto renew), Then return via the gifting link?

        • Laurie Seguin Barrett

          Amazon apparently caught on since heir pervious deal. They’re only allowing it for new members. I tried removing auto renew, changed date to end membership, removed one click purchase, tried to gift it & it would not allow unless you pay $99.
          I called and asked customer service to pass on my message that
          countless(millions??) loyal members should be offered the same fair deal. If enough members complain perhaps they’ll listen.

    • Susan

      What if you signed up for the free 30 day trial but haven’t actually purchased a Prime membership yet? Can I cancel the trial on Thursday and purchase a membership at the $67 on Friday?

    • http://preparedhealthyhome.com Mj Escobar

      Thanks for this! I need to join!

    • Kim

      Does anyone know how to turn off the auto-renew?

      • Larissa Henne Boyle

        If you remove the “preferred payment method” for your prime membership it will not auto renew. Or you can ask for a reminded 3 days before your membership is set to renew

    • Chrissi

      I didn’t think you could turn off the auto renew. Are you able to do that?

      • Karen

        I didn’t see anyway to turn it off…..wondering if we have to end our current membership with prime and open a new one with the $67.00 yearly fee????

    • Allie Dunn LaCroix

      FYI looks like the $67 would only be for the first year & then it’ll go back up to $99/year or however much they’ll decide to charge a year from now.

      From the Amazon Prime page:
      “Celebrate Transparent winning 5 Emmy Awards with a $32 savings
      On Friday, September 25, from 12:00am ET to 11:59pm PT, we are offering new members a special price of $67 (normally $99) for the first year of Prime.”

    • MaryKay

      do students get it for 1/2 off the 67??

    • Latavea Elise

      So this will give me the ability to do unlimited streaming of shows and movies, rather than paying per show?

      • Julie

        There are many shows and movies that you have to pay for even with a Prime Membership.

    • Susan Kennedy Schatz

      I just went to Amazon on 9/25 and can not find thus deal anywhere. Only see full price memberships…what’s up?

      • Norma Bradley Gustafson

        If you are not a member already and have not been a member then you can just call them and they will email you the link.

    • DailyWoman

      I just looked also and if you have Prime already you will not see it. My husband has a Amazon account without Prime and he can see the deal but from what we have seen you can not gift it for that price. The only way to get it for $67 (that I seen) is to sign up a Amazon account that doesn’t have Prime already. If someone has been able to do pls share cause I can’t figure it out.

      • Corrine O’Leary

        I wonder if you could gift it to your husband for the day yours expires and then have him add you to his prime at that point? You can share prime with a different account at the same address right?

        • vickisfloyd

          It appears that they have removed the discount on the gift option.

    • breathez

      Can’t find discount! Plus can’t turn off auto renewal, been a prime member for years. Is this just a myth dreamed up?

      • vickisfloyd

        This is only for new prime users.

    • Melanie Villafana

      Actually… you can’t gift it. You pay full price when you add it to your cart.

    • ShannonK

      It wouldn’t let me purchase today’s sale price as a gift – it blocked the transaction because I was logged in and already had Prime. If anyone figures out how to do it, let me know.

    • ShannonK

      Yes. It’s been awhile, but I remember going through those steps.

    • http://sunshineandelephants.blogspot.com/ Lr Jamison

      Hi, I need some help. I am trying to gift myself with this, but I do not see where I can do this. I don’t even see the deal. I already have prime.

      • vickisfloyd

        Only for new prime users. Discount does not work on gifting.

    • Lisa Crescenzi Carver

      Is there a code or something… trying to buy it, please advise, its 99

    • Laura Jean Davis

      Looks like Amazon wised up. The gift option is not available for the special price so if you try to gift it, you will pay $99. If you sign up as a new member, you’ll get the $67 price. Oh well!

    • tori729

      I’m a secondary member on another person’s Prime account and I can’t get it either. :( I was hoping to just sign up on my own.

      • Lindsey

        I was on as a household member on someone’s account and I was able to get my own. You do have to click proceed to checkout in order to see the $67….maybe that’s the problem?

    • Amy

      IT WOULD NOT ALLOW ME TO DO THE DEAL EITHER. I’ve never used prime and was looking forward to it. However, b/c I have taken advantage of the free trial in the past, that means i’m not a “new member.” I called and was told that is why it would not allow me to order. That’s super shady…and I refuse to do business with people who are dishonest!

    • breathez

      Just a hook to get more members while ignoring the 1s who have been members for years. Boo Amazon!

      • Laurie Seguin Barrett

        I agree wholeheartedly. We all need to contact Amazon to share our view in this slight!

    • toddbudnikas

      This in no way seems to work for existing members. I turned off auto-renew completely and tried to gift it to myself. On the final review checkout screen the cost was still $99.

      • Julie

        This worked last time they offered it but this time it is NOT working for me!

    • Laurie Seguin Barrett

      If every Pirme member sends a message or calls Amazon about not allowing us to utilize the $67 deal, perhaps they’ll get the message
      that we’re angry about it. It’s not fair that current prime members cannot utilize the deal for themselves or even gift it to someone else.
      We’ve been faithful, dependable, and supportive clients so why shouldn’t we be allowed the same deal as everyone else I ask you!

    • Amy

      I have done free trials in the past, but never paid for Prime, and it wouldn’t let me sign up at $67. Luckily, my husband has never signed up for a free trial and we were able to get the $67 deal with his account.

    • Laurie Seguin Barrett

      Here’s Amazon’s phone number 888-442-1958. It will prompt you to press numbers, choose prime. It will allow you to ask for a call back
      so you don’t have to hold on. I got a quick call back within a couple minutes and asked customer service to pass my message on to
      her supervisor and management that I was angry that those of us who are long term members that have been faithful customers are
      not allowed to gift this $67 deal to ourselves or others is completely unfair. Maybe if we stand up for ourselves we can get them to change it.

      • Casey Schaffer

        I just called that number and it is not in service? I can’t find another number anywhere.

        • Laurie Seguin Barrett

          My apologies Casey, it’s 877-442-1958.

    • Kacy Post

      I am a loyal prime member but once again #amazonfail

    • Tisha Belme

      Unfortunately, they will not allow the gift membership trick this time :( I just ended a chat with them about it.

    • nycmom

      Just had the same experience as Tisha…on chat w amazon & they said offer only good for new customers and NO gift option. Wish they would offer this to loyal customers AND as a gift option – better business all around.

      • Laurie Seguin Barrett

        Agreed! Ask them to advise their supervisor & upper mgmt. Loyalty should count. I have to say though that their customer service is outstanding!

    • Vicky McLear

      I just did it. No problem. It says my membership will end in February and my card will NOT be charged. I like that much better! I’m likely to forget an auto-renewal fee on the old budget list. ;)

    • Susan

      Here’s my story: I signed up for a free trial of Prime on Monday, the 21st. I used it to get two day shipping on a couple of things I need to go out of town this weekend. Because my free trial – even though I hadn’t paid yet and chose to not continue past the free date – was considered a “membership,” I couldn’t get the $67 deal. I started a chat with Amazon, explained my situation, told them I felt I was being punished because I had used one small benefit of my membership, which wasn’t even worth the $32 difference in price. When the rep checked my account and saw I was telling him the truth – hadn’t watched any shows or movies, hadn’t ordered a bunch of stuff, etc. – he was able to discount the regular membership the $32 for me and I got it for $67. This may not work for everyone, but because my situation was a little different, and I was very polite about it, it definitely helped me.
