As an Amazon Student member you’ll also get six months of FREE Two-Day Shipping with Amazon Prime on eligible purchases, and will automatically continue receiving Amazon Prime shipping benefits at a cost of $39 a year for up to four years with automatic renewal. After you graduate or at the end of the fourth year of your Amazon Student membership, whichever comes first, your subscription will automatically renew on its anniversary date into a full paid subscription for Amazon Prime at $79 a year. Your Student Prime benefits can’t be shared with another account, but if you continue with a paid membership you’ll be entitled to receive access to thousands of Prime instant videos, and a Kindle book to borrow for free each month from the Kindle Owners’ Lending Library. Benefits are subject to restrictions, such as geographic limitations, as stated in our Amazon Prime Help pages. If you don’t wish to continue with paid Prime benefits you can set them to not automatically renew at any time during the free period.

Once the $39 membership is selected, you’ll no longer be eligible for the free period even if the paid membership is canceled.

If your .edu e-mail address isn’t listed on your account, that’s OK. The only e-mail we’ll send to your .edu e-mail address is the verification e-mail. After that, other Amazon Student e-mails will be sent to the e-mail address listed on your account.
