[Expired] Amazon Prime Student: 6 Month Free Trial + $15 Off $40 in Purchases [9/1-9/28]
Direct link to offer (our affiliate link, thanks for supporting the site)
Amazon is offering the following deal for new Prime Student signups:
- Get a free six month Prime Student trial
- Get $15 off an order of $40 or more when you use the promo code: COLLEGEOFFER
The six month trial is the standard Prime Student deal; for a limited time, they added this $15 offer with promo code. The $15 deal is for those signing up for a free trial of Prime Student or those who are signing up now for a paid $49 Prime Student membership (e.g. if you already used up your free Prime Student free trial and now, sometime later, you decide to pay for the Prime Student subscription).
The Fine Print
- Valid 9/1/17 – 9/28/17.
- After you have completed your Prime Student sign-up, select at least $40 in products (but not digital content) sold by Amazon.com or Amazon Digital Services LLC, not sold by a third-party seller or other Amazon entity (look for “sold by Amazon.com” or “sold by Amazon Digital Services LLC” on the product detail page), add items to shopping cart, use promo code “COLLEGEOFFER” at checkout, and $15 discount will be applied.
- As a Prime Student member, you receive FREE Two-Day Shipping on eligible purchases. You’ll also receive unlimited streaming of thousands of movies and TV shows through Prime Video, access to unlimited photo storage through Prime Photos, as well as Student-exclusive deals and discounts. Your Prime Student membership makes you eligible to receive 50% off Amazon Prime, $49/year, plus any applicable taxes, as long as you are a student up to total of 4 years (inclusive of your six month trial period) after which your Amazon Prime benefits will renew at the full price. Your Amazon Prime membership continues until cancelled. If you do not wish to continue your Amazon Prime membership, select ‘Do not renew’ from Your Account before your annual renew date.
- Offer only applies to customers who sign up for a Prime Student paid membership or Prime Student 6-month trial between September 1 and September 14, 2017.
*Promotional code only applies to products sold by Amazon.com or Amazon Digital Services LLC (look for “sold by Amazon.com” or “sold by Amazon Digital Services LLC” on the product detail page). Products sold by third-party sellers or other Amazon entities will not qualify for this offer, even if “fulfilled by Amazon.com” or “Prime Eligible.”
- Promotional code does not apply to digital content or textbook rentals (including eTextbook rentals).
- Promotional code expires at 11:59 p.m. (PT) September 27, 2017.
- Offer limited to one per customer and account.
- Unless an Amazon Gift Card is the stated benefit of the promotion, promotional codes (including those placed directly in accounts) may not be redeemed for Amazon Gift Cards.
Prime Student’s 6-month-free offer is pretty awesome on it’s own, and this $15 offer sweetens the deal. (Same deal was around back in April.) Check out our Guide to Saving Money on Amazon for money saving tips. We’ll add this deal to that guide.
I don’t know of any portal or offer which gives points or rewards for a Prime Student signup, big thanks if you decide to use our affiliate link for the signup.
Remember to notate your calendar for 6 months from now to decide whether to cancel the membership since after the six months free, it’ll automatically charge you $49 for a year. You can also change the setting in your account for Do Not Renew immediately after signup so that it won’t auto-charge you.
