For Amazon student members who lost their prime benefits (and who have the Amazon Visa as their primary card): Click "get started" then click "sign me up". It won't say anything about the $20 credit. On the next page you will see:
"Thank you for being an Amazon.com Rewards Visa Cardmember and now an Amazon Prime member.
You will receive your $20 statement credit two weeks after the membership fee posts to your card."

If for some reason you do not get the message about the $20 statement credit, you can cancel immediately and get a full refund


List of Kindle books available for free to Prime members is found here [amazon.com].


This only works if you add your amazon card as a default payment card. If you do so, you will get $19 student prime

-----
"This only works if you add your amazon card as a default payment card." <--- This statement is confusing. As long as you pay with your Chase Amazon Visa Card (Not the Amazon Store Card if you have one) you qualify for this offer. It is very simple, as soon as you click on the link and login to your amazon, the system will check if you have a Chase Amazon card. If you do, it won't say anything at first. If you don't it will display a message saying you are not eligible. If you have the Chase Amazon Card, make sure you pay the $79 subscription fee with your Chase Amazon. As soon as the payment is completed, the system will confirm that you will receive your statement credit in 2 weeks. It doesn't matter if your chase amazon card is default or not. It doesn't matter if you got the email or not. Your elegibilit is based on you having the chase amazon card registered to your account and making sure you use it to pay for your prime membership. gwmadrigal.

We'll see in Q4 but I know I haven't bought anything since they started charging sales tax, even now I was thinking about "splitting" this with my dad but really with the extra ~9% I'm better off just getting stuff (the stuff I used to buy with prime like snacks/toiletries/etc.) locally.
Food isn't taxed.

I think Amazon is trying to kill Target because yesterday Target announced they would match competitors' prices include Amazon, Walmart, Bestbuy, etc... only good until Christimas.
Awesome! I hope we can get an additional 5% off the pricematch with our Target red cards. I wish I didn't have to wait until Nov 1, cause I want a few things now.

Hmm, I'm torn. Right now I'm only paying $39/year student rate and still have three more years left at that price as long as I auto-renew. I suspect if I cancel auto-renew to save $20 this year (my renewal date is next week, conveniently) I'll screw myself out of the $39 rate for the remaining two years. Decisions are hard!!!

Too bad Amazon has started collecting tax in CA. It's no longer my first place to shop.

Not true.
My student 50% off membership expired sometime this summer and I haven't renewed because I do not buy anything from Amazon (I haven't found anything worth it). I will renew it the moment I need something shipped right away, i.e. a good deal. This will happen around the holidays, I suspect. However, I STILL qualify for the 50% off. You will be eligible up to 4x50% renewals, with no need to auto-renew.

Also for those that bought Prime membership prior to this deal (at full price) can cancel and Amazon will refund the pro-rated amount. Believe me, it works. I've done it.

HTH!

I love Amazon CS ...
MeStick Out Tonguerime membership offer for Amazon Visa card holders
Andy:Hello, my name is Andy. I'll be happy to help you.
Me:Hello Andy, I'm hoping you can see if I can get a credit for an offer you just started up.
Basically I got Amazon Prime a couple of months back, and used it all of 1 time, now there is an offer to amazon visa card holders to get a $20 credit
Andy:Just one moment let me research this for you.
Me:Now I could cancel my prime membership and sign back up on the deal but it's a pain to do so
If I cancel the page says" Since you started your Prime membership, you and/or your invited household members have enjoyed Prime benefits on 1 order(s).
XXXXXXXXX
Because you and/or your invited guests have used benefits on only a small number of items, we will make an exception. We will issue you a partial refund for the remaining 9 month(s) of your current membership period if you choose to cancel"
Can you make this easy on me and just give me the $20 credit (after you verify that I am a Amazon Visa card holder and it would effectively be the same if I cancel and sign up again)?
Andy:I can put a 20.00 promotion on your account that you can use to purchase item sold and shipped by amazon.
Me:that would be more than acceptable Smilie
Andy:Just one moment.
I put the promotion on there, will send you an email on how to use the promotion.

EDIT: I wonder if I should cancel anyway and try to get the $20 promo too hehehe

That is an incorrect blanket statement, in CA there is a distinction made between prepared/unprepared food as well as sub exemptions for certain kinds of prepared foods.

Do you have to revalidate with your .edu address when you do that? (showstopper for some of us, for obvious reasons)

I was thinking the same thing, possibly a reaction to Target's announcement. If so, perhaps there will be more to come! However for me prime still doesn't make sense, don't use the kindle or tv/movie stuff, and most of the things I buy cost more than $25 and already get free shipping, so I still don't think ponying up $59 makes sense just to get something in 2 days. Now if it were $39 I might reconsider...

The opposite is exactly why it makes sense for me .... I had Netflix streaming but mainly the kids just watch Tomas, Dora etc etc, Amazon Prime video content is limited/less but enough for the kids... so for me it's practically netflix streaming + free 2-day shipping benefits.

I'm not sure if they changed anything but at one time the Amazon website said that you get $30 if you APPLY for a credit card. So I did when purchasing something knowing that my credit was locked. Of course they couldn't check my credit so I was denied the card, but I wrote customer service and said that it doesn't say that I had to be accepted for a card to get the $30, just apply...which I did. They gave me the $30. I never bothered to try it more than once though.

Amazon is scrambling, they're trying to make up for lost (sales tax related) sales.
Not sure how 'true' this statement is... but I know about 5 people (including myself) at work who used to be Amazon heavy (discussed deals, SD, shared good purchases) that haven't purchased as much already in just the last month since they implemented the tax 'collection effort' for California. We have been going to other sites (ebay, non-taxing sites) and SD links away from Amazon.

It sucks... and now... since not only did Amazon start charging sales tax... they also have this new 'add on' category and you can only get those Add-Ons when you spend $25. A lot of things I bought like hair products/etc when I just needed them quick now require this... I don't think I am missing a 'workaround' to avoid this...

Prime is so less tempting now... sadly.

No. Because you had already validated/linked it with your Amazon account.

I know where you are getting at but that is the reason they offer it for 4 years only.
