Thinking of joining Amazon Prime? Don’t delay another day! Shoppers signing up for the service will get a rare deal on Friday.
For 24 hours only, you can get Amazon Prime for $79, a 20 percent savings on the standard $99 membership fee. New Prime members can sign up for the discounted membership on Friday from midnight EST until 11:59 p.m. PST.
Amazon is running the promotion in tandem with the Friday premiere of “The Grand Tour,” a new series available exclusively on Amazon Prime Video.
Prime is Amazon’s subscription service. It includes benefits such as:
- Free two-day shipping with no required minimum purchase

- Free unlimited music streaming
- Free unlimited photo storage
- Free access to more than 800,000 e-books
