Looks like if you are a student and have an edu email address you might qualify for this.

It works as long as you've been assigned an .edu email address.

Dang it. DH lost his edu email address last year (it expired, no way to renew it until he goes back and we can't afford that at the moment).

Thank you for posting this! An Amazon Prime membership is so worthwhile...but so overpriced at, what, $79/year?! I just signed up using the link you provided. Awesome!

I am a current Amazon Prime member and I signed up for this and they are refunding me my pro-rated membership I paid. So this saved me $66!

Were you signed up under another email or an .edu one originally? I have prime but dh has an .edu address I was going to try to sign us up to continue under this fall.

My account is under a different email. I first signed into my Amazon account and then it asked me for my .edu address. They sent me an email to validate it and it was all automatic from there.

Awesome! I renew my prime every year beause I use the heck out of it, so when I saw this I did what PP said, go to the link, login, and it will ask for you .edu email and send you a link to click, then you will get an email telling you that they cancelled your regular prime and pro-rated the refund! I got $60 refunded! WOOHOO
