Is this an extension of current student prime trial, or do you need to make a new account?
Hmmm, I actually just installed the app and tried it. My student prime had expired a month ago, but it says:
"it appears you are actively subscribed to an amazon prime, student, or mom program. unfortunately, we do not currently support switching plans via student app. if you would like to switch plans, we encourage you to do so on the website: amazon.com/prime"
however, I don't see why you couldn't just use an android phone, reformat it and create a new gmail account for that phone. then download the amazon student app and sign up for free prime with that new gmail address. not sure if it would work, but if it does then it could mean you don't need a *.edu to make a new student account.
