Amazon’s original series Transparent won five Emmys earlier this week. To celebrate, Amazon is offering $32 off Amazon Prime memberships. But there’s a catch: this deal is only good today, September 25. Today only, Prime memberships are on sale for $67. The normal price of an Amazon Prime membership is $99, for a savings of $32. You can learn more about this promotion here. This one-day discount will start on Friday, September 25, at 12 a.m. Eastern time and end at 11:59 p.m. Pacific.
Amazon first launched Amazon Prime back in 2005, and recently celebrated the 10-year anniversary of the service with their Prime Day promotion. Until early 2014, the price of Amazon Prime was just $79. Amazon increased the cost of a Prime Membership to $99 in March of 2014. That marked the first increase in price in the history of the program. The September 25 promotion will see the cost of Prime drop to levels even lower than the 2014 membership price.
Transparent is a 10-episode Amazon Original Series, starring Jeffrey Tambor as Maura, a trans woman who used to be Mort, the family patriarch. The show boasts a 91 Metascore on Metacritic. The second season of Transparent will premiere on Prime Video on December 4.
This year, Transparent won Emmy awards in the following categories: Outstanding Directing For A Comedy Series, Outstanding Lead Actor In A Comedy Series (for Jeffrey Tambor) Outstanding Original Main Title Theme Music, Outstanding Costumes For A Contemporary Series, Limited Series or Movie, and Outstanding Guest Actor In A Comedy Series (for Bradley Whitford).
Transparent has been the most popular original series on Prime Video since the show’s launch. Amazon’s other shows include Hand of God, Bosch, Catastrophe and Mozart in the Jungle. Prime Members can also stream Amazon’s hotly anticipated new series The Man in the High Tower when it premieres in November. These shows are all exclusive to Amazon, and can’t be viewed through competing streaming services.
