This is my first deal post so go gently on me.

.Edu or Sprint service not required.
I signed up using an .org email and previously signed up for the free one month amazon prime membership promo, which has ended.

Membership: Prime Student Trial, courtesy of Sprint

For me it is asking about .edu email. Even though the initial page says "courtesy by Sprint"......am I missing something???? Is it for new members only???

I'm unable to replicate. The next screen after you try to start the trails says it requires a .edu email you can confirm.

How would this be different compared to the regular Student 6-month free trial?

Oh sweet; Thanks! Just wondering if it's been confirmed... Just don't want to activate it if it's my only free trial. TIA

I used my non-profit organization's company email.

I'm not sure how I got this to work. I might have been just lucky and caught it at the right time to sign up for the free 6 month prime trial.

Bumping this old thread but just wanted to mention that I got this offer today. I've had the free 1-month trial on this account and it recently expired. I didn't have Prime (paid or trial) when this popped up. I was going through checkout with a Kindle in my cart to check if I had any promotional credits and it asked me if I wanted free two day shipping for 6 months courtesy of Sprint - I assumed it was just another sale thing (they advertise all the prime packages as "free two day" shipping), but when I clicked it it immediately said thank you you're now prime etc. I checked and it hadn't charged me, just said 6 month free trial. Not sure how as I've not signed up this account with an .edu e-mail, just my normal Gmail address that I've used for n free trials in the past (lol). Here's the confirmation e-mail http://i.imgur.com/gBfbvrd.png

It's possibly related to the fact that I was looking at iClicker prices shortly before the offer came up (iClicker is an electronic tool used extensively in uni courses). Funny enough, I've had my iClicker for years - was just curious whether the price had dropped or if their monopoly kept the price high. It kept it high.

Mine just did the exact same thing. I was signed up for a free 6 month trial and it was just expiring and then I was offered the Sprint deal (I used an outlook email).

Accidentally activated this promo... similar use with OP, gmail account, 1 month trial amazon. Was offered student trial (6 mo prime) after the previous trial expired... Not sure how to activate though.
