Heading back to school means being well supplied, especially if you're a college student. Whether it's fresh notebooks and a new backpack or full linen sets, hitting the books means stocking up. One way to save money is by signing up for Amazon Prime Student, which anyone with a .edu email address can do for four years or until graduation (whichever comes first.)
The best part? You can get the first six totally months free.
With a Prime Student account, you get all the expected benefits, like unlimited streaming of movies and TV shows on Prime, free 2-day shipping on eligible purchases, access to Prime Music, and unlimited photo storage with Prime Photos. Oh yeah and you'll also get access to exclusive sales — lots and lots of sales.
In order to sign up, you'll need a valid .edu email. After the 6-month free trial, it will cost either $6.49/month or $59/year up through graduation. For context, normal Prime costs $12.99/month or $119/year, so this highlights just how much you can save being a student. Keep in mind though that Prime Student benefits cannot be shared like a standard Prime account. Once your free trial is up, the paid account will kick in.
Here's how you sign up:
Step 1: >Go to Amazon
>Go to Amazon
and enter your email or phone number
This is all you'll need to do if you already have an Amazon account. If you don't, keep reading...
If you don't have an Amazon account already, you'll need to sign up with your name, email, and a 6-character password.
Step 2: Enter your .edu email and graduation year
This is how you'll be verified by Amazon for a Prime Student account. Amazon will send you a verification email to your student address just to confirm it's for real.
If you don't have a .edu email, you'll need to send Amazon an email with your school documentation, such as a school ID or class list, to email@example.com. This will allow you to be verified by Amazon for a Prime Student account despite your lack of a .edu address.
Step 3: Enter your credit card information
Once your 6-month free trial expires, Amazon will charge the card you entered during the set up. If you don't want to be charged, simply cancel your account before those six months are up.
Step 4: Enter a billing/shipping address and phone number
Step 5: Get that >free trial
After the trial is up, you can continue going through the end of your college term with Amazon Prime Student for half the price of Amazon Prime. You'll have access to everything on Amazon, get early access to deals, and all streaming services.
