To register for Amazon Prime Student, visit this page and enter your details. Ideally, you should have a .edu email address for Amazon to validate your student status. You can register without a .edu address by scanning and emailing one of the following items to firstname.lastname@example.org:
- Your student ID displaying the current term or an expiration date; just a student ID number is not valid
- Your transcript or class list for the current term with your name and your school’s name on it
- Your tuition bill for the current term with your name and your school’s name on it
- An official acceptance letter for the upcoming term (must include matriculation date)
You must send this email from the address associated with your Amazon account. If Amazon accepts your eligibility, they will send an email within 3-5 business days for you to register. This is an excellent way to save a few bucks as a college student! Even if you don’t end up paying for the full service, you can enjoy six months of prime benefits for FREE. Cheers!
