This just in – Amazon is dropping it’s Prime membership from $99 to $73. Refinery 29 reports that the savings start at 9:00 p.m. Pacific Time today (Friday, January 15th) and end Sunday, January 17th at 11:59 p.m., Pacific Time.

But why are they dropping the price? Business Insider shared that Amazon is celebrating its Golden Globe win for their original series, “Mozart in the Jungle.” The $73 comes in because it was the 73rd annual Golden Globes.

If you don’t already have a Prime membership, this $26 savings is great news. I personally LOVE my Prime membership.They sell almost everything (over 20 million items, to be exact) – so I spend less time driving around, hunting for a parking spot, and waiting in checkout lines. Here’s some other great reasons why I choose to renew my membership every year:

  • Free two-day shipping to my door.
  • I can share some of my Prime perks with someone else – yes, it’s true!
  • Unlimited storage for my family’s photos.
  • Free streaming on thousands of TV shows, movies and songs.
  • Free access to over 500,000 ebooks.
  • Early admission to Amazon’s Lightning Deals.
