On September 25, people can purchase Amazon Prime for just $67 — a big markdown from the $99 regular price.

Amazon is so excited about its five Emmy wins for show Transparent, that the massive online retail store is having a one day sale on the legendary Prime program.

Prime membership offers people free two-day shipping on millions of products and instant streaming of TV shows, movies and music. This 24-hour, $67 deal applies to all Amazon Prime customers — new or old.

For new members, it will be exceedingly easy to purchase the program. Customers will just need to buy it  and redeem it online.

For people who are already Prime members currently indulging in the program, there is still a way to nab the deal. Buy the program as a gift and email it to yourself. When the subscription that is already being used ends, redeem the $67 special at that point. Essentially the deal will be waiting in the customer’s inbox, even when Sept. 25 has long passed.

“This has been an incredibly exciting year—with the Golden Globes wins in January and now twelve nominations and five Primetime Emmy wins,” Michael Paull, Vice President of Digital Video for Amazon said. We are thrilled to celebrate Transparent with our customers by offering a Prime discount.”

Amazon Prime’s most attractive features are it’s free two-day shipping and its instant streaming of popular TV shows, movies, music and books.

The enormous virtual store has one of the most reliable shipping practices, the Post Office even joined forces with the company to deliver mail packages on Sundays. Prime utilizes Amazon’s already dependable shipping, but gives it you for free. If you buy the Prime program, millions of items will be shipped to you in two-days for free. Some packages, depending on where they’re from and how big they are, will qualify for one-day shipment.

Amazon’s instant video has gotten a face-lit, and is now highly competitive with Netflix. Offering HBO shows, original series, classic movies and a slew of other entertainment choices, Amazon is a zenith of binge-watching. And with Prime, many of these streaming choices will be free. When customers know they won’t be near wifi, Amazon added a download feature. Customers can now load movies when they have cell reception, and watch them on their mobile devices no matter where the are.

In addition to free shipping and instant streaming and downloading capabilities, Prime also offers book and music deals. Through the program, customers can download hundreds of thousands of Kindle books to their tablets, computers or a regular Kindle. There is even a Kindle book sharing program through Prime that will let people swap books like a virtual library — at no extra cost, and with no due dates. And while customers read, they can also listen to the one million free songs offered through Prime.

Prime also offers unlimited photo storage and exclusive member deals.
