Deal: Amazon Prime Membership is Just $72 Today Only

Update:  The deal is done.


To celebrate Amazon’s two wins at the 72nd Golden Globe Awards for its original series, Transparent, the online retailer has dropped Amazon Prime memberships down to $72 for 24 hours only. The deal went live at 12:01AM ET and is good through 11:59PM Pacific, tonight.

Amazon Prime memberships typically run $99 per year, so if for some reason you don’t already have a membership, now would be the time. Wait, you all do have Amazon Prime memberships, right? Don’t answer that if you don’t, just go sign-up.

For those new to Amazon Prime, your benefits as a member include free 2-day shipping, unlimited ad-free access to over a million songs, instant streaming of popular movies and TV shows, free unlimited cloud photo storage, and a bunch of free books. It’s awesome, even if you just use it for the free  2-day shipping.

Deal: SanDisk Memory and Micro SD Cards are Up to 70% Off Today at Amazon

Christmas is gone and you probably have gift money to spend. One good way to offload all of that cash would be on a micro SD card for your new phone, because you can never have enough storage.

The biggest steal of the lot is the 64GB micro SD Class 10/UHS-1 card for just $24.95 (regularly $64.99). Seriously, that is a steal. Your other options include a 128GB Class 10/UHS-1 card for $89.99 (regularly $129.99), 32GB for $12.95, and a 16GB for just $9.99.
