Amazon Prime: $79 for new Prime members today only in honor of The Grand Tour!

If you do not yet have an Amazon Prime membership and are NEW to Amazon Prime, you can get one for $79 today only!  This is a great price since it is normally $99/year.  Amazon Prime has many benefits, the biggest being of course the free shipping for Prime items.  This past year I have been choosing slower shipping if I am not in a hurry to receive an item, and the promotions are typically a $5.99 Amazon Prime Pantry credit or $1 digital credit which can be used to redeem MP3’s or Amazon videos.  The credits have been so handy to have on a dreary winter day or sick kiddos at home and it’s inconvenient to leave the house.  If you are new to Amazon Prime, my referral link is here:  Amazon Prime.   Some of the other benefits to Amazon Prime are the Amazon Music, the Kindle First (select books are available for free to Amazon prime members), Amazon Photos (you can store photos here), and select offers for Prime members only.  Here is more information about the one day special only from Yahoo:  Amazon Prime Yahoo Article.   My understanding is that it shows up as $99/year, but when you check out the price should drop to $79/year plus sales tax if applicable in your state.   This is a fantastic deal!  amazon-prime

Thanks Hip2Save and Stephanie!
