The premiere of The Grand Tour is a big deal for Amazon. Such a big deal, in fact, that Amazon has decided to discount its Prime membership by $20 lowering the price to $79 from $99 (from £79 to £59, for those in the UK) this Friday only, in order to honor and celebrate its launch.
The one-day sale will run from 12:00 a.m. ET until 11:59 p.m. PT and is only available for new members, according to Amazon and we’ve determined that this is the absolute best day for you to sign up for Amazon Prime, since you can get at least 4 episodes of The Grand Tour in and if you don’t like it, your 30 day trial will be over and you’re not obligated to pay.
But before you think about how to get out of this membership, you should also keep in mind that the holiday season is upon us and there are a ton of benefits you will also score, aside from the fact you’ll be watching the greatest motoring show on the planet, of course.
We have compiled this great list of our favorite benefits that you get with Amazon Prime, so after you’re done watching the premier, celebrate by taking full advantage of your new membership.
30 Day Free Trial
If you don’t like it. Don’t pay for it. It’s pretty simple.

Enjoy Shows from Richard Hammond and James May
Free 2-Day Shipping
Not only can you get all of your favorite Top Gear, The Grand Tour, and various books, DVD’s etc. from Hammond, Clarkson, and May, but you can get many of them in just two days. Perfect for the last minute shopper looking for a great gift for the petrol-head in the family, or for themselves!
A 30-Minute Head Start on Black Friday
Want to get all your automotive gear before everyone else when it goes on sale next Friday? Well, you are in luck, because Amazon is giving its Prime members a 30-minute head start on all of its Black Friday “Lightning Deals.” No more worrying about that Top Gear box set being sold out before you have a chance to buy.
Free Streaming Music, Video, and Written Content
Not only will you be able to access and stream The Grand Tour, but a huge library of other media. You have access to Amazon Music, which has over one million ad-free songs, unlimited streaming of Amazon’s video library with full movies and TV episodes, and you also get access to Prime Reading, which lets you borrow books, magazines, and more from the Prime Reading catalog.
Looking for a safe and secure place to store all of your favorite photos? Guess what? You get that with Amazon Prime too! You can use Prime Photos to save and organize an unlimited amount of photos in the Amazon Drive for you and members of your Family Vault.
Ok, this one isn’t available everywhere just yet, but it is awesome.
