Attention college students!
1 year Free Amazon Prime membership

Did a search and couldn't find this:

www.amazon.com/student

Requires:
-Valid .edu e-mail address
-Specify college, year and major
Quote :
To sign up for and use Amazon Student, you must (1) have an Amazon.com account, (2) be a college student actively enrolled in at least one course at a college geographically located in one of the 50 United States or the District of Columbia, (3) be able to provide proof of enrollment upon request and (4) have a valid e-mail address that contains the domain suffix .edu.
Go here to Sign Up [amazon.com]

Everything else is self-explanatory. Go to prime and manage your account. Should be activated and have an ending date 1 year from sign-up date. You are even able to add family members to the account like a regular prime subscription.

Updates to answer questions

Q: Will this automatically renew?
A: NO!
Quote :
The automatic renewal provisions in the Amazon Prime Terms & Conditions (which would require you to pay for Amazon Prime) do not apply to this membership, even if we decide to extend the free Amazon Prime offer beyond one year.
Q: Can I get this if I'm not a student (even if I have a .edu e-mail address)?
A: You might be able to. And you might not.
If you do not qualify and they catch you, Amazon will make you reimburse them for their costs
Quote :
If you do not provide documentation indicating that you meet the eligibility requirements above, you may be required to reimburse us for benefits you received as a result of your Amazon Student membership.
*I am not the arbiter of morality, but please don't abuse this by signing up if you do not meet Amazon's requirements*

Q: What happens if I already have a prime account?
A: I'm not sure, however people are reporting that if they currently have a prime account and they sign-up for the Amazon Student account, the following happens:
1. Their current prime account gets cancelled and they get a pro-rated refund
2. They get signed up for the free 1 year amazon student prime

Q: My .edu address isn't my Amazon.com address -- do I have to create a new account?
A: No
Quote :
If your .edu e-mail address isn't listed on your Amazon.com account, that's OK. The only e-mail we'll send to your .edu e-mail address is the verification e-mail. After that, other Amazon Student e-mails will be sent to the e-mail address listed on your Amazon.com account.
Q: Ohh my gosh, this is amazing, how can I thank you!?!?!
A: Students are notoriously poor. Many have to work minimum-wage jobs while taking classes to pay for rent, tuition and food. Let a student know about this deal and help them save money. Also, donating old books you have lying around the house to schools and libraries (especially those dealing with budget cuts) could potentially enrich a child's life and help them get interested in many different subjects and put them on the path to higher education.

interesting read for those new to amazon prime - amazon primer

Hello Sd'ers Wave

Friendly Warning....There's absolutely no begging or pleading to be added to their amazon prime account. The mods are aware of this and is strictly prohibited within our terms, policies & conditions of slickdeals. Please refrain yourself from any further type of begging/pleading posts or comments for invites within this thread. Thank you...

What does invite others to use prime mean (under the account tab) does this mean to authorize others to use my prime account for free, or does it mean to invite others that have a edu. e-mail to sign up???
^You can invite anyone (up to 4 others), with any email address to share your Prime account. You won't see any of their purchase and they won't see any of yours.
Family invites may say that they are only for one month (at least it was for my wife) but they also get a full year and 4 invites!!! - Morning_Breath

- well, for the invites it said Subscription Duration = 1 month. However, the prime account showed valid until Jul 13, 2011. So we will know if it is valid for 1-year ONLY after 30 days.

FAQ [amazon.com]

Terms and Conditions [amazon.com]

If you sign up for an Amazon Student membership, for the first year of that membership, you will receive one free year of Amazon Prime. We may choose to extend this free offer for more than one year. With Amazon Prime, you will be entitled to FREE Two-Day shipping and $3.99 per unit One-Day shipping on all eligible purchases for one year. The automatic renewal provisions in the Amazon Prime Terms & Conditions (which would require you to pay for Amazon Prime) do not apply to this membership, even if we decide to extend the free Amazon Prime offer beyond one year. There is no minimum purchase requirement. Amazon Student members will also be entitled to discounts and promotions, which we will communicate to you via e-mail or make available on the Amazon Student membership page at www.amazon.com/student.

Please use a current .edu e-mail address. Alumni addresses are not eligible.
sanjeeva7 - oh well it was worth a shot!!

This applies to graduate students as well as there is a choice for "graduate student" when signing up.

For those who are thinking about frauding the system, think again. Enrollment can easily be verified by using this website [National Student Clearinghouse - EnrollmentVerify School Participants]: http://www.studentclearinghouse.o...chools.asp HOWEVER, for Amazon to use this to verify enrollment would cost $$ - usually something like $2-5 per enrollment check request. Rather, they can just ask YOU to provide "proof" of your enrollment - no idea what would be considered proof - and do it that way. The best advice is to at least be prepared to give them SOMETHING if you have to.

RE: Auto-renewal
This is nothing to worry about. If they do end up charging you, just call them and tell them you'd like to cancel. I had a three month trial renew on me, which I didn't catch until over a month later. I called, said I never used the service and didn't want to keep it, and they gave me a full refund on the spot.

Inviting household members
Invitation works like normal! Each Student Prime account may share the Prime benefits with 4 other people like a normal paid Prime account. -aznkuo
To invite a friend or family member, go here: https://www.amazon.com/gp/subs/pr...epage.html

Current Prime Members
You should receive an email automatically from Amazon showing that your old Prime membership was canceled and they are issuing a pro-rated refund. This has been confirmed by multiple $D members. Some users report this email being blocked by spam filters, so if you don't get it, check your spam folder.

Currently unknown

School-Specific Information
Any Northwestern Univ (Evanston, IL) undergrads should use the @northwestern.edu that is hidden in the system....ie First-Last@northwestern.edu. your @u.northwestern.edu account will NOT be accepted for this promo. Might work for grad students too, YMMV -Your friendly Wildcat, dragonflight

So, I've been riding the free Prime bandwagon for 1 1/2 years now. Is there a way to renew again yet, or am I out $40 on Feb 28th?

Been out of the renewal loop for a year now, so just checking to see what the status is.

Same here, and when I check for any auto-renewal it doesn't have any. It simply shows when it expires. Will Amazon send me a renewal notice? I have no credit card saved on their site.

Since I got in while they allowed sharing the Prime, will it continue with the renewal?

Thanks guys

+1 for wanting to find a way to prolong free Prime shipping after February 28.

I'd be okay paying $40 so long as there is no difference between the paid student Prime and the full price Prime. You get all the same access to Prime instant videos, right?

I also don't have the auto renewal option in my "manage your Prime membership" page. Did they take that away for anyone who did the cancel/enroll thing last February to extend their free membership?

Pretty sure you can't share student prime with other people. I paid $39 for mine several months ago.

I see on their site that it says, "Upgrade now to get Amazon Prime for only $39/year (normally $79/year) and enjoy: "

I'm assuming a year is... 12 months.

Mine expires on 02/28 as well. I'm HOPING they keep the $39 deal until the end of the month and not switch it back to $79.

hmm i still have a while until my prime account closes, [free student one] so i was wondering what the general opinion was of Amazon Student users.. should i just save the hassle of signing up for Amazon Mom and the whole buying baby products or should i just cough up $40 bucks or something?

The big confusing thing I have about Amazon mom, is any baby product = free month or something?
so if I buy like 10 baby products, thats 10 free months?

You might want to check your expiration date. It seems as if many who thought the had more months are finding that Amazon set all of the free accounts to expire at the end of this month.

Can anyone confirm this? I'm looking to buy the $39 Amazon Prime and share it with my family, but if I can't share it I'd rather just get the $79 full-price.

While you can't share, you can add other people's credit cards and other shipping addresses.

And either share your password with those people or do all the ordering for them. I do the latter for my mom.
