6/12/11 9:40pm PST - It allowed me to cancel and re-up, however few hours later I log in and this is the message I get "Important Message
Your membership has been cancelled." Also 2-day shipping doesn't show up on the right and I don't have the "prime" logo anymore.


Worked for me on 5/27/11




If you CALL Amazon to CANCEL, YOU CANNOT RE-SIGN UP using the same e-mail.


For Alumni emails simply capitalize your email so that "alum" is not included: name@alum.school.edu => name@Alum.school.edu

australia emails don't work

Bolivia emails dont work

Don't try to click on the confirmation link using a Blackberry device. You will get a message from Amazon saying the confirmation link was not valid if click on the link through your Blackberry

To all those getting an error when trying to re-subscribe, make sure you use Internet Explorer, it seems theres an issue with non-IE browsers.

I used google chrome as I don't have IE installed
Firefox worked great for canceling and renewing Amazon student.

FYI - I have an Amazon Prime account through my daughter who is a college student. She cancelled her account then signed up again. It automatically extended my Prime account until 2/28/2012 also Smilie

you will not received the e-mail confirmation until your previous entered personal information matching with your current entered personal information. It happend to me just now. I hope this would help.

Gonzo380 - Anyone that was previously an Amazon Student Prime member that cancelled but could not re-register for it, try finding your original email when you first signed up for it in your .edu account and click on the verification link. Worked for me.

In a follow-up to Gonzo380's suggestion, I didn't even wait for Amazon to send a new confirmation link. After submitting my .edu email address, I immediately used the confirmation link from the time I signed up previously. Worked perfectly. - Gizmotoy

If you accidentally cancelled and could not re-register for it and you do not have your original confirmation email. You can submit a request directly to amazon and they will re-enable your prime account starting from today for an additional year! - dsp9753

If you're using rockmelt and use autofill to fill in your e-mail address and state, don't use autofill - put in your e-mail address and state manually. Otherwise the list of schools doesn't pop up and an error occurs. -adidabiking

*If you use the alumni.school.edu and don't receive the email instantly, just click on the link requesting another copy and it will be sent over "IMMEDIATELY", then click on link and you are gooood - llfe

-- Works fine in Chrome, browsers aren't the issue anymore. Canceled membership, logged into australia.edu, used old email link, signed me back up right away. 2012 exp.

3/4/2011 UPDATE: I have a different *.edu account & successfully signed up very early this morning (3/4/2011). LINKY [amazon.com]



I had to cancel old student membership and sign up for a NEW account using different caps on the .edu e-mail address... if you only cancel your student membership and reapply without signing up for a NEW Amazon account your PRIME membership does NOT renew, only student membership does. Your Amazon Prime Membership Membership dates: March 5, 2011 - March 5, 2012

(Gigahertz21) - I can confirm the above, if you cancel your current membership and try to extend Amazon student prime for another year using the SAME Amazon account, it will not work. The only way to try and get another free year of Amazon prime on the SAME Amazon account is to talk to a CS Rep. using the right language and they might do it. Go to page 116 of this thread and read the replies for some info on how to do it. If you don't want to bother talking/lying to a CS Rep. then just create a new Amazon account and then it's trouble free.






6/12/11: also confirm still working (same .edu/same account) - jeremym
7/4/11: worked for me to sign up new. yay for lifetime email forwarding from my undergrad and grad school.

I tried with a 'disposable' account today and It didn't work. When you click on the "Get started" on the signup page [amazon.com], it'd just take you to the Amazon Student page [amazon.com], where it has a link to "Join Amazon Student", but that link takes you right back to the signup page [amazon.com], creating an endless loop.

looks like they sealed up the loop hole. We'll see if they extend the student prime this year, even if they don't, thank god i got it extended, and they haven't backtracked the extension.
Which actually is pretty easy, since the start date is the original jun 2010 , so they can easily screw us if they wantnod
