Amazon Prime 1 Year Free for Students and Others

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 [1]. One of the benefits is a free year of Amazon Prime. It’s Free Money [2] 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

  1. Sign up for Amazon Student [1] and sign into your Amazon account.
  2. Enter your .edu email address, state, school, academic level and major.
  3. Confirm your email address.
  4. 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 [1].

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.
