Amazon offers no annual commitment on Prime student memberships

Peter Terlato 11 October 2017 NEWS

Just $5.49 per month, plus the first six months free.

Amazon has introduced a more flexible subscription process for students that want a Prime membership, offering a free six month trial and a no-commitment monthly payment option.

Amazon Prime Student accounts are already available for just $49 per year, although these subscriptions require an annual commitment. The new month-to-month payments cost just $5.49, about $65 a year.

The student-friendly accounts also include complimentary use of the service for the first six months.

Despite the higher price tag, the monthly deal is still much cheaper than a regular Amazon Prime membership.

Amazon Prime costs $99 per year or $10.99 per month, including a free 30 day trial for annual subscriptions.

Amazon Prime Student subscriptions include all the benefits of a regular membership; fast, free shipping on purchased products, Prime Video streaming, Twitch Prime games offers, Prime Music, Prime Photos, Prime Reading, as well as other exclusive student deals and discounts.

To join, college students from two and four year colleges simply need to provide a valid .edu email address.

In June, Amazon announced it would give customers on government assistance programs a monthly discount.

After receiving 11 Emmy nominations and taking home the award for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series this year, the critically acclaimed TV series This Is Us is making its way to Amazon Prime Video later this month.
