Amazon Prime will be $26 cheaper until Sunday night

Those who have been tempted to sign up for Amazon Prime but were put off by the $99 annual fee might want to consider joining this weekend.

The company is cutting the subscription price down to $73 for new members in celebration of its two wins at the 73rd Annual Golden Globe Awards. The discount starts this Friday, Jan. 15 at 9 p.m. PT and ends at 11:59 p.m. on Sunday, Jan. 17.

Prime allows access to a wide variety of perks, including Amazon’s streaming video service, free two-day shipping on certain products, Amazon’s Prime Music streaming app, unlimited photo storage with Amazon Cloud Drive, and early access to deals on Amazon.com.

The company also separately offers a free trial for Amazon Prime, but members must remember to turn off membership renewal to avoid being charged once the trial duration runs out.
