It’s No Powerball Jackpot, But This Amazon Prime Deal is Pretty Sweet

After a bummer of a week (David Bowie! Alan Rickman! I didn’t win the Powerball!), it’s nice to get some good news.

That’s why I was so glad to learn that this weekend, Amazon Prime will only cost $73 — 25% off its regular price of $99. Score!

Amazon Celebrates Its Wins With a Prime Discount

Why, you wonder?

Well, this year’s Golden Globes were the 73rd annual event. And Amazon’s original series, “Mozart in the Jungle,” won. Twice.

So in celebration, Amazon’s offering Prime memberships for $73. The sale starts this Friday at 9 p.m. PST right here.

(Feeling generous? You can also get the deal if you buy Prime as a gift.)

Watch Mozart in the Jungle for Free

Even if you’re not ready to spring for Prime, you can join the festivities: Starting at 9 p.m. ET, seasons one and two of the Globe-winning show will be available to everyone for free streaming.

The deal turns into a pumpkin midnight on Sunday, though, so you’d better binge hard — unless, of course, you go in for Prime, which offers unlimited streaming video as one of its benefits.
