If you are a US veteran or active military member, there is an Amazon Prime promo for you! Save $40 on an annual subscription and pay just $79!

With Veterans’ Day coming up, expect a lot of retailers to roll out some sales that will target those who serve the US in a military uniform – or those who have served. Amazon has one such deal which is a pretty good one and it gives one year of Amazon Prime for just $79 – a $40 discount from the normal price.

Amazon Prime for $79 for Veterans and Active Military

Link: Amazon Prime Promo (this is an affiliate link that supports this site – thanks for your support!)

Here are the details of this Amazon Prime promo for military members – both active and reserve.

To receive this promotion, you must be a verified U.S. veteran, Active Duty or Reserve or National Guard member.

    • This promotion is available Nov 6–11
    • If eligible, you can sign up for Prime at $79/year (normally $119/year) for the first year
    • You can attempt verification a maximum of three times
    • Prime Student and discounted Prime members are not eligible for this promotion
    • Amazon and Partner Rewards points can’t be applied towards this promotion

Note: Discharge date is the day you left the military

So, you will need to wait for verification (it is not an instant thing) but you will have Prime at a $40 discount when it is done! Not a bad promotion for getting items shipped to you (including bases for overseas shipping), Prime Video, and many more benefits of Prime video.

Thank you to all those who currently serve our country or have done so in the past! I am always grateful for your service and glad when retailers do things to help show their own gratitude.
