Every year during the holidays I sign up for an Amazon Prime account. You get free 2 day shipping and no minimum order. So when you snag a lightening deal for $10, you don’t have to buy $15 more of junk just to get free shipping.
Amazon Prime just launched Amazon Student. One of the benefits is a free year of Amazon Prime. It’s Free Money Friday, so let’s check into the deal.
Updated: The current offer is now six months free.
How to Get a Free Year of Amazon Prime
- Sign up for Amazon Student and sign into your Amazon account.
- Enter your .edu email address, state, school, academic level and major.
- Confirm your email address.
- Get your free 1 year subscription to Amazon Prime.
Free Amazon Prime for Others
Other .edu Emails. My husband works for the university and has a .edu email address. I signed him up and selected “other” for academic level. It worked perfectly! Anybody else try various .edu email addresses?
Current Members. You can get a refund if you already have an Amazon Prime membership and sign up for Amazon Student.
Email List. When you sign up, you’ll get the student deals emailed to you. If you don’t want them, you have to give up the free Amazon Prime. I suggest setting up an email filter for them if you don’t want to read the deals.

Thanks for sharing the info. Can’t wait to sign up!
I was curious about one thing regarding your husband signing up for Amazon Student. Under Amazon’s terms & conditions, item (3) states that you must “be able to provide proof of enrollment upon request”. Have you been requested to provide this information from Amazon? I am curious how strictly they enforce this rule. Thanks!
I’ve also heard about being able to get it for free if you’re a mom.
