We are in the final three weeks of our 2016 Prime membership drive. We have 1815 signups to go. Today I wanted to let you know about a new feature we're introducing today. Many of you know friends or relatives who read TPM and who might like Prime as a gift for the holiday season. That's now possible. To be clear, these are separate from "credit subscriptions" which users can buy for readers who lack the financial means to join. These are straight-up holiday season gifts you can give to a spouse or parent or child or anyone you wish. If you'd like to buy some friend or loved one a gift, click right here.
If you'd like to apply to get a credit subscription—in essence a free subscription for people of limited financial means (full time students, seniors on fixed incomes, any kind of financial hardship), you can go to the page that has a sign-up form for just this purpose. You can also purchase one or more credit subscriptions for others. You can do each right here.
Of course what we'd like more than anything else is for you to join us as a Prime member. If you've been thinking about or just putting it off, please take a moment and sign up right now. It's easy and cheap and it's a huge part of building a better, stronger TPM. Just click right here.
