Most people know Amazon Prime and what all its advantages are, in fact there are millions of users who subscribe to the program to benefit from everything it offers us. But the truth is that the online shopping giant has a program designed especially for university students whose name is Amazon Prime Student.
What is Prime Student and conditions to subscribe
As its name suggests, Prime Student is a subscription program created specifically for college students. Therefore, it offers access to the advantages of Amazon Prime but for less money, since the subscription is cheaper. However, it is important to know that the benefits of Prime are subject to certain restrictions, such as geographical limitations.
To be able to register and take advantage of Prime Student benefits is necessary:
- Have an Amazon account.
- Be a student enrolled in a university center located in Spain.
- Be able to present proof of enrollment.
- Have a valid email address for a university center located in Spain. In the event that we do not have an email address for the school, it is possible to register for Amazon Prime Student by following an alternative registration process.
It is possible that Amazon will ask us for certain documentation to verify our student status, and in the event that we cannot provide it, the online shopping giant may request a refund for the advantages that we have enjoyed from the Prime Student subscription no right.
As we have just indicated, in the event that we do not have a valid email address of the university center, if we are 18 years or older and we provide the necessary documentation to demonstrate that we are enrolled in a course at a university center in Spain, we may possibly be able to obtain our subscription to Amazon Prime Student without having to fulfill the requirement of the email account.
To send the documentation that proves all this, we must send an email to the address email@example.com from the email address associated with our Amazon account. In this message we must include a photo or scanned image of one of the following documents:
- Certificate of studies that includes our name, study center and the year of validity.
- Student identification card showing our name, study center and the year of validity.
If Amazon considers us to be eligible to subscribe to Prime Student, we will receive an email in the next working days (between 3 and 5 days) where we will find a link that will allow us to complete the registration for the special subscription for students without the need to have an email account from the university center to which we belong.
Now, it is important to know that we must complete the process from that link in the next 14 days from the receipt of the email. After that time the link will no longer be available and we will have to contact Amazon customer service to try to register again.
How to sign up for Prime Student
If we meet the established requirements to subscribe to Amazon Prime Student, these are the steps we must follow:
- We go to the Prime Student registration page.
- We fill in the registration form with all the mandatory information: valid email address of our university center, year of enrollment at the university, payment method and billing address.
- We send the form with all the data.
- We click on the verification link that we will receive in the mail to complete the registration.
In the event that we do not have a valid email address for our university center, we must carry out those specified in the previous point.
How much does Amazon Prime Student cost
The student subscription offers all the benefits of Amazon Prime but at just half the price. That is, we can subscribe to Primer Student for only 18 euros per year. In addition, unlike the 30-day free trial offered by the Prime service, the subscription for university students offers the possibility of trying all the benefits of the service completely free of charge for no more and no less than 90 days. During this period it is possible to cancel our subscription if it does not convince us or it is not what we expected.
