Amazon Prime Membership Available for $67 for New Members

This is a good opportunity to sign up or maybe give yourself an early Christmas present.

As a result of Amazon winning five Emmy's on Sunday for their hit show "Transparent" at the 67th Emmy Awards, they will offer their Prime membership for $67 for new members. It's only a 24-hour promotion starting on September 25 at midnight ET.

This is a good deal for anyone, except students, who has been on the fence about signing up for the $99 membership before. Students already get a discounted rate and only pay $49 per year (and no one asks when you graduate, by the way), so if you're still in school you should just ignore this special promotion.

Technically, there is a way you can take advantage of this even if you're already a Prime member. You can find more info on that from our community here.

Given that Amazon probably already converted a lot of new sign-ups during Prime Day, this is a quick promotion that they can afford to get even more people to sign up before the holiday shopping season kicks in. People who signed up for the free 30-day trial but backed out due to the $99 membership fee might reconsider signing up for $67.

So does "New Customer" include customers who haven't had a Prime Membership in over a year?

I mean, they let you keep the "Amazon Student" tag on your account, but the charge goes up to $99 a year unless you send in a transcript or other such proof of continued enrollment....

Maybe. I let my membership lapse for a brief period after being a member for a couple years and in my account where it says "member since: " It only starts when I signed back up.

One good thing about having two kids in college four years apart is I'm on my eighth year of either free or half price PRIME. I will miss it when it goes full price and I finally cancel it.

My prime membership has lost a lot of it's value in the past years as Amazon has added some shipping restrictions to Prime, eliminated free family member accounts and added Minnesota Sales Tax. I just got a free one year membership to Jet which has many of the same items, free shipping over $45 and no sales tax for me..

I got "You do not qualify for a refund and will not benefit from canceling your membership at this time. " when I tried to cancel mine.

If your Prime will end soon just sign in with another email account and get it $67 then don't renew your older Prime account.
