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 think folks early on who were able to add a family member, it would be advantageous if you just renewed. as i believe after a while you couldn't add a family member with student prime

FYI....

Amazon is now deleting accounts using maricopa.edu. I just signed up for an account yesterday and received a confirmation email. Today, I tried to sign in and couldn't log in. I emailed customer service but they showed no account under that email address. I went to sign up again and I received an error saying that the email address was used on a past student account.

Darn!

that is exactly why this gets messed up for those of us that have a REAL maricopa edu email. I'm glad they're banning those fraud account as you should be a student to get a STUDENT discount

This is the thread i wanted to ask this question.


I had used a free month trial of amazon prime back last year for 30 days. Well i read online that if you have a college email address with .edu, you can get it free for 6 months. I graduated college many years ago so would i still be eligible for this even though i used my amazon prime free trial last year for 1 month? I see that it allows 6 months for ppl who are students?


If not, i have another family member who is in college and they never had amazon prime. Would they be able to sign up for it?

My .edu Prime is about to expire. I'd imagine others are in the same boat, given when most of us got in on this last year. Anyone have any new ideas on how to extend for free? Amazon offered to extend for $39/yr, but I have a problem with paying anything for Prime ...

I have used the amazon prime for free for 1 month last year and then cancelled it. I see that amazon prime gives free 6 months if you are a student. I graduated college couple of years ago but still remember my college email address. Does anyone know if i could get free 6 months of prime if i use that edu address? I had never used it before.

thewaxtadpole, would you recommend using a different credit card when signing up for the amazon prime with the edu address? Meaning the credit card i currently use with amazon... use another credit card when signing up with an edu address?

If you look back at this post you'll see that getting one of those emails won't help you anyway.
