Amazon has always offered free trials of its Prime service. However, it rarely discounts the service itself.  

In addition to free 2-day shipping, Amazon Prime gives you access to a host of Prime member benefits including early access to Amazon Black Friday deals and Cyber Monday deals, access to Amazon Video, and much more. Membership also lets you shop exclusive deals on Amazon Prime Day

If you're not an active military member or veteran, Amazon also offers Amazon Prime Student, which charges $59/year for Prime membership if you're a college student.
