I recently got an .edu email at the start of the semester for contacts as well as classwork downloads.

Just signed up. Thanks OP!

This is beautiful. I registered online for a school in my area, and without even talking to anyone at the end of the process it gives you an edu email. It worked for the amazon, now have a 1 year free membership, this is great. Thanks

Sweet! I've been out of college for 11 years, but I just found out that all email addresses are kept unique, and my school offers free forwarding from your old .edu address to any current email adress that you have. I just activated that on my schools website, and signed up for this with zero problem!

I used my .edu address to open the prime account then changed it to my regular email, I don't think you have to keep it linked to the .edu address.

I activated it with my existing amazon account, which is already tied to my regular email. I just had to provide the edu address to get the prime, and then use the activation link that they sent to that address.

Re: 1 Year FREE Amazon Prime... for College Student Only!

I recently graduated and really never used my schools email address. Forgot what it was but after some searching found it, found out all my email sent to that address like someone else stated was already being forwarded to my current email. So, I signed up for this and it worked. Wish I thought of this alot sooner than now. Thanks OP.

Thanks OP! I found a friend who knew someone still in college and snagged their e-mail. Now I'm set for another year!

Re: 1 Year FREE Amazon Prime... for College Student Only!

My student prime ends this week, I got an email today to renew it at $39, and it includes streaming.

Seemed like a good deal, and I love having prime so I went for it. It does auto-renew, but says it will stay $39 for up to 4 years or as long as I am a student (whichever is less). I'm not sure how they check that I am still a student since they didn't actually send anything to my student email address.

I did the exact same thing.

$39 for Amazon Prime for the next four years? Let's do this.

I'll miss Prime, but I don't buy enough stuff over the course of the year to make paying for it worth it.

Did you notice if you can share this version like a regular account?

Yeah, I was wondering the same thing. I stupidly opted out of my "share" prime account when I got the free student one and now I'm w/o Prime.

I don't order enough to justify paying $39 for it, but a share plan for like $15 or so or $8 (if someone splits up a student account) would be cool.

No, Amazon has removed that option from student Prime accounts. You do get the free streaming video.

I'll re-up at $39. I probably about break even on the whole deal but the insanely quick shipping at no extra cost has saved my bacon countless times over the past year when I've forgotten upcoming birthdays and such. Throw in the streaming and it's an even better deal.

Damn Amazon for smartening up. Student can't be shared any longer and you can't register with an alumni email address! Bastards!

Thank goodness my alma mater doesn't use alumni email signifiers.

Re: 1 Year FREE Amazon Prime... for College Student Only!

I tried to set up a new account with another school email I have, but it wouldn't work. I'm not sure if I'll sign up with Prime or not; I mean, it's really nice not to have to worry about waiting to get stuff to have over $25, but I'm not sure if I'll spend enough to justify it. Tough call.

Does this work if you have already graduated? I graduated in 2009, but still have my .edu address.

I graduated in 1999 and I still have my .edu address, and it worked, so yes.

I'm currently sharing a free student account with my sister (from last year before they prevented student accounts from sharing). Does anyone know if I can continue to share her prime membership if she signs up for another year at the $39 rate, or will they kick me off of prime as soon as the 2nd year starts?
