Have you been thinking about signing up for Amazon Prime? Today is the day to take the plunge. For one day — today! — Amazon is offering its Prime membership at a pretty great discount. Normally a membership will cost you $99 a year, but today it’s 20 percent off and will only cost you $79. The deal started today at 12 a.m. EST and will last until 11:59 p.m. PST tonight.

Amazon Prime might be best known for its free two-day shipping, but there’s more to the program. For example, there’s now streaming video and music, free Kindle book offerings, and even two-hour delivery in certain areas. I imagine that, especially with the biggest shopping day of the year looming (Black Friday), these extra benefits might be useful sooner than you think.
