Amazon is offering a number of great Black Friday deals. Among these deals is a big discount to its Prime memberships. The company will be giving a 20 percent off from the original cost of $99 on Nov. 18. It will include a lot of benefits that non-Prime members don't have access to.

Amazon's Discounted Prime Memberships

Those who are interested in signing up on the said date will be paying only $79 for Prime membership. According to the Android Headlines, this is in celebration of its original series launch, The Grand Tour. The perks of being a Prime member include being able to watch this show and other Prime content via the Amazon Video app for TVs, Amazon Fire TV, mobile devices and online.

Other advantages of being an Amazon Prime member also include unlimited access to its streaming video, Prime music, Prime photos, early access to Lightning Deals and free two-day shipping on Amazon orders. Bookworms will also be able to enjoy Amazon's offer of unlimited reading for US Prime members. You will be able to read a rotating selection of books, magazines, comics and more at no additional cost, according to the PC Mag.

Limitations Of Amazon's Promo

The $79 discount is only limited to non-Prime members who decide to sign up on Friday as Prime members. According to the Tech Radar, it does not apply to current Prime members who want to re-up their accounts for another year and those under the Amazon's bounties program. If you still don't want to spend that much, you can try the free 30-day trial.

Encouraging Non-Prime Members To Sign Up

Back in October, Amazon launched its Prime Reading service. It offers over a thousand of free e-books exclusively to Prime members. Among those that can be read with no additional cost include "The Hobbit" and the "Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone". There are also other books, magazines, short works and comics available through Kindle apps on iOS and Android.
