To clarify for those having issues:

There may be two different emails in your DASHBOARD

"Newegg ID" needs to be .edu to work with COLLEGETOUR.

Having "Student email" alone as edu may not work. Verifying is NOT necessary if done before.

SO make your Newegg ID the same as the student email address. THEN apply COLLEGETOUR.


Confirmed it will extend an existing membership.

It appears new members get free 30 day membership first. Them 12 month student free after that. When in student mode, you can also add up too 4 free friends and family to premier. So we are actually getting 13 months. And adding 4 free friends and family after initial 30 day. Got it?

ALSO NOTE: This auto-renews. If you cancel, it appears to take effect immediately which negates this deal. So set an alarm, else you will be charged a renewal in 12 months.

Once I changed my email address to my .edu, I got it to take:

YOUR NEWEGG PREMIER MEMBERSHIP IS EXTENDED TO 01/26/2018. IT WILL USUALLY TAKE 10-30 MINUTES TO COMPLETE THE PROCESS.

So I guess this means it's only valid for college students. I've never had a Premier membership and tried to sign up using the promo code. I get the message "ERROR Sorry, the promo code COLLEGETOUR you've entered is invalid"

I did the same. changed to edu and it said good till 12/09/2017.

Refreshed the screen and it stayed the same 12/09/2016. So did it extend or not? THEN tried to re-enter COLLEGETOUR and got the message below. Guess I will wait 30 mins and see.

Came back 30 minutes later and it does show my account expiring in 2018 now. I changed my email address back to my normal one (non-.edu) and it doesn't seem to have affected the expiration.

Just tried extending one of my side B's accounts.

She had previously signed up as a Newegg Student for the Free 1-Year: HERE

Promo Code: COLLEGETOUR worked fine. Extended her one more year. Smilie
