If you or someone you know is a student (with a .edu e-mail address) they are eligible to join Amazon Student. And everyone who signs up get a FREE six month trial.
During that six months there are a few benefits, the biggest being FREE 2 Day Shipping on thousands of items. There are also exclusive discounts and promotions- many of which involve textbooks both for rental and purchase.
If Amazon Student is not cancelled at the end of the six months (just put a reminder in your calendar if you want to cancel) the student still gets a tremendous deal- Amazon Prime at 50% off. It can be cancelled at any time. Please note that on Amazon Student Prime you cannot share your membership with someone the way you can with regular Amazon Prime.
After you graduate or at the end of your fourth year of Amazon Student Prime benefits, whichever comes first, your subscription will automatically upgrade on its anniversary date into a full paid subscription for Amazon Prime. This is easily cancelled.
