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.

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

I'm so glad they fixed the glitch that wasn't taking my .edu address! Customer service never contacted me like they said they would, but at least it's fixed.

to all that have signed up: this is going be a crazy amazon prime year! 1 click buying, free two day shipping, this is impulse buying at it's best.

Quote from Reality :
I hate seeing Amazon getting ripped off like this. I called them just now to let them know about the thousands of slick dealers who are abusing this opportunity for actual students.

I gave them the link to this thread. They said they will be investigating this and will take action soon.

You're welcome.

Please accept my sincere apology for confusing your post for promotion of australia.net fatcool, it was an honest mistake.
As mistake that you could have avoided if you had just taken off your moral police hat and let it go.

For such a good deal, there is way too much bickering in this thread. There are tons of new visitors to the site based on this single thread and you guys are making the SD community look really bad with all of this pointless arguing. Just sayin'

Agreed. All those bickering about nonsense make me vomit

People are going to abuse a deal whether you like it or not, but all this nonsense about who is in or isn't in college is dumb.

Just rep the OP, say a thanks if you want, in and out. Simple as that.
