Amazon Prime deal: Get the streaming service at a $26 savings

Get a $26 savings on the shipping and streaming service — for a short time.

If you’ve been considering an Amazon Prime subscription and feel like saving $26, this is your weekend.

Starting at 9 p.m. PST Friday and running through 11:59 p.m. local time Sunday, the shipping and streaming service will be available for $73, down from its usual $99.
