Amazon Celebrates Emmy Wins With $67 Prime Deal.

NEW YORK (AP) — Amazon is cutting the price of its $99 annual Prime membership program to $67 on Friday for new members to celebrate its original series “Transparent” winning 5 Emmys at the 67th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards. “Transparent” debuted in 2014 and stars Jeffrey Tambor as a transgender parent. We are thrilled to celebrate Transparent with our customers by offering a Prime discount,” Michael Paull, vice president of Digital Video for Amazon, said in a statement. “Congratulations again to Jill Soloway, Jeffrey Tambor and the cast and crew of Transparent for making such a beautiful show, and to our customers-enjoy!

The Internet giant scooped up awards for Transparent, a U.S. comedy-drama from Amazon Vaults, the Amazon arm that produces original TV shows, movies, and more. The $32 Prime discount kicks off at 12:00 am (ET) on Friday, September 25 and ends at 23:59 (PT) the same day, giving you around 27 hours to take advantage of this offer. Amazon Prime includes free two-day shipping on more than 20 million items on Amazon’s marketplace, same-day delivery on some items, and access to streamed songs, movies, and TV shows. It’s also worth noting here that it’s only open to new subscribers in the U.S. and U.K., and that after a year the price will be bumped up to the standard $99. Amazon and Netflix have been going head-to-head in the online video streaming wars, but the big differentiators seem to increasingly hinge on original content.

It’s also a big improvement from last year performance, when Amazon’s streaming video service received zero Emmy nominations, compared with 31 for Netflix. Regardless, slashing the price by a third makes it a great deal, so if you’re not a Prime member already, this Friday is probably the best time to join. Amazon Prime members will now get The Washington Post (which Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos owns) for free for six months, as well as a reduced rate on a full subscription. Earlier this year, Amazon signed up the former Top Gear presenters for a new car show exclusive to Amazon Prime, reportedly paying $250 million in the process.
