Amazon never ceases to amaze us. We actually do a good bulk of our grocery, baby, household and any other need shopping on Amazon throughout the year because of their highly competitive and often much lower prices than even going to Walmart. We even end up using the digital coupons on Amazon and not have to cut out coupons and drive to the store. Our items arrive to our door in a couple of days and we are just happy thrifty campers.
So they have a shipping program called Amazon Prime. If you are not familiar with it, you pay an annual fee around $79 and this gives you free 2-day shipping on thousands of items and groceries on Amazon with no minimum purchase required (so you can literally snag those rock bottom dollar deals and have it shipped to you in 2-days for FREE!).
Well, there are ways of grabbing this sweet shipping program for free. We’ve shared three ways on our previous post HERE.
BUT…what if we told you that you can earn money by referring your student friends to the FREE Amazon Student Prime Membership – they get the freebie and you get $3 credit to spend on the Amazon site? It may sound too good to be true, but Amazon follows through…. They are one of the most reputable e-commerce sites out there and they are true to their word and they are really giving you $3 for each friend that joins the Amazon Student program.
So what is Amazon Student? It is a FREE Prime Membership for 6 months, which is a long time to use this awesome service. After the 6 months, you will be charged $39 (half price) for the membership per year. BUT you do not have to continue if you do not wish to do so and can select the “Do Not Upgrade” option. Here’s the details of the terms of the free membership from the Amazon site:
By signing up, you acknowledge that you read and agree to the Amazon Student and Amazon Prime Terms and Conditions. At the end of your free six months, your membership will automatically upgrade to an annual Amazon Prime membership and we will charge your card or another available card on file $39/year. Select “Do not upgrade” from Your Account to change your renewal settings if you do not wish to continue to an annual Amazon Prime membership. You will continue to receive Amazon Prime for $39/year for as long as you are an Amazon Student member for a total benefit period up to 4 years (free and discounted) after which your Amazon Prime benefits will renew at the full price. The Amazon Student $39 Prime plan includes the same benefits as Amazon Prime, but these benefits can’t be shared with another account. See Amazon Student Terms and Conditions for more information.
So, by joining Amazon Student, you will receive many benefits. To be qualified to sign-up, you will need to enter your school and major and have an email address ending in .edu. My own mom has a free Amazon Student Membership. She is in her 50’s and went back to school after all her kids left home. So she qualified for a FREE Prime Account! She was very happy with this freebie and brags about it to everyone 🙂 So if anyone in your household has a .edu email address, then your household can receive free Amazon Prime!

Don’t you just love Amazon 🙂 Saving others money and giving others opportunity to earn money too!
