Transparent Stories September 22, 2015

Over the weekend Amazon’s Transparent brought home five Emmy statuettes and to celebrate the online giant is running a one day sale on Prime memberships. Amazon ran a similar promo earlier this year, but this time the savings are even bigger. Beginning this Friday, you’ll be able to buy a year of Prime for only $67, which is a savings of more than 32% off the regular price. Amazon doesn’t discount Prime too often so now’s the time to make the leap if you’ve been on the fence about it.

Prime members get free 2-day shipping on millions products with no order minimums, unlimited streaming of eligible movies, music, and TV shows, unlimited photo storage, early access to select Lightning deals, and even exclusive video game discounts. I’ve been using Prime for years and love that I can get everything from household cleaning supplies to a new Mac at my doorstep in 48 hours at no additional cost.

For many, the typical Apple keyboard, or something from a company like Logitech is more than enough for their daily needs. But for video editors, music programmers, serious gamers and those looking to type in different languages/dialects, customized keyboards can be very helpful. There are already a number of options for these folks, including Logic Pro X/Final Cut Pro keyboards with the quick commands printed directly on the keys, or even this super-customizable $1,500 typer, with mini LCD displays behind each key. But the new E-Ink display equipped Sonder keyboard is looking to bring an even deeper level of customization at a much more realistic price point: expand full story

amazon-prime-instant-video You’ll soon be able to stream Transparent, Orphan Black, and any other Amazon Prime Instant Video title during select JetBlue flights at no additional cost. Relying on JetBlue’s Fly-Fi connection as its backbone, the two companies seem confident that they are ready to keep up with the bandwidth demands of streaming video:

Fly-Fi uses satellite technology to give customers internet speeds that feel like what they have at home or work. Amazon and JetBlue worked together to ensure that the inflight entertainment system met the premium experience expected by customers when streaming movies and TV episodes from Amazon. Access to Amazon’s entertainment library will be built into the JetBlue Fly-Fi Hub, giving customers instant access to watch titles from Amazon on their laptops, Fire devices, iPhones, iPads and Android phones and tablets—no pre-flight download needed.

Any in-flight passengers who are not Prime members will have the option to purchase or rent videos from the Amazon Instant Video store.

This latest announcement is just another feather in Amazon’s cap. At this point Prime is a must-have for anyone who regularly shops online — it offers free 2-day shipping, exclusive pricing and priority access to select Lightning deals. Not to mention unlimited cloud storage for photos, music/video streaming, and more. Not a member? Start your free 30-day trial now.

expiredAmazon one-day offers: Rare Prime discount of 27%, Transparent available to stream for free

Amazon always has education discounts and free trial offers for its Prime service, but it’s not often that the online retailer lets anyone sign up for less than the usual $99 per year. Today Amazon is doing just that. Any Amazon customer who signs up for a new Prime account will only pay $72 for the first year, which translates into a savings of 27%.

While the terms of the promo state that only new sign ups are eligible for the discounted rate, there is a workaround for existing members. First, turn off auto renew for your current Prime membership. Next, buy a gift Prime membership for $72 and have it sent to your email address. Finally, wait until your current membership lapses, and then apply the gift membership code to your account. Voila!

Already set for a couple of years? Be a superhero to your friends and family and gift them a Prime membership.

Prime members get free 2-day shipping on millions of products, unlimited streaming of more than 40,000 TV shows/movies, unlimited photo storage, early access to select Lightning deals, and more.

As a Prime member myself, I have it say it’s absolutely killer to be able order any item on a whim and have it at my doorstep within 48 hours for no additional cost.

Amazon is taking over Hollywood. Transparent won two Golden Globe awards and to celebrate Amazon is streaming the entire first season for free. Just like the Prime offer above, this special promotion is valid for today only.

As they struggle to come to terms with Maura, Josh looks for answers from a rabbi named Raquel (Kathryn Hahn), and Ali looks for answers in a Gender Studies class with Syd. Sarah is left to answer questions from her own kids, who meet Maura for the first time.
