Another deal that is part of today’s voice theme for Amazon’s Prime Day Countdown Deals is a discount on Prime membership. If you sign up for Prime using an Alexa device, by saying “Alexa, sign me up for Prime,” the cost of your first year will be $79 instead of the usual $99. This is for new Prime subscribers. In addition to that, Amazon is still offering a $10 credit for streaming your first Prime Video, so that effectively makes your first year just $69.
so just to clarify, this is for new subscribers only?
Yup. Sorry for forgetting to mention that. I’ll add it now.
thanks. I assumed it was like last year, but just wanted to make sure I wasn’t throwing away $20 needlessly. Oh well, still the best $100 I spend each year!
I would like to know the same question. Are members allowed to take advantage of this offer as well? Thanks, Teresa
I am already Prime so I tried asking Alexa to sign me up for Prime to see if I could get a cheap extension on my membership, but no such luck. Alexa just said, “Good news, you are already a Prime member.” Not the good news I was hoping for!
