Amazon prime for 1 item, don't want to "use" my trial

436 30 March 13, 2018 at 02:20 PM Get Amazon Coupons
I am a student so I am eligible for a discounted and free trial on Amazon. However, I have found almost no use for Amazon, and there is just one item with a fairly large shipping fee that I want to buy. Also, it's fairly likely that I will end up returning the item, since it's rather expensive, and if I don't like it I'm not keeping it.

So, can I pay for 1 month or use the 1 month (non-student) trial? I'd rather not use my student trial as I don't think I would be able to get much value out of the 6 months. I'd rather save that for a time when I have identified at least a couple of items that I would buy regularly that somehow benefit from Amazon prime.
Don't have Amazon Prime? Students can get a free 6-Month Amazon Prime trial with free 2-day shipping, unlimited video streaming & more. If you're not a student, there's also a free 1-Month Amazon Prime trial available.

Just create a fake email. Sign up for an amazon account. Trial prime for 30 days. Cancel it immediately. You get to keep the 30 day trial.

make sure the item is eligible for prime shipping, not every item on amazon prime will be eligible for prime shipping. I have prime and ive purchased items on there that weren't eligible for prime shipping. PITA

You could just do a student trial again anytime you want on a new account, .edu emails can be bought for a couple bucks on eBay or other such sites. I'd vote just go ahead and use your 6 months now and when it runs out, start over and do it again as many times as needed to avoid large shipping fees.
