Amazon Prime Student Yearly Membership Increase Starts Today + FREE 6-Month Membership NOW

Hip2Save may earn a small commission via affiliate links in this post. Read our full disclosure policy here.

Starting today May 11th, the price for the Amazon Prime Student Yearly Membership is increasing from $49 to $59 per year – bummer! 😖

If you have an existing Amazon Prime Student Yearly Subscription, your cost for renewing will increase to $59 on the date of your next renewal.

Thankfully, you can still score six months for FREE…

Did you know that college students are eligible to score a FREE 6-month Amazon Prime Student Membership – complete with all the awesome perks? YES – it’s true! Note that this is for NEW members only.

This student membership gives you free 2-day shipping on millions of items, unlimited streaming of movies and TV shows with Prime Video, free unlimited photo storage, 30-minute early access to Lightning Deals, exclusive offers, discounts, plus MORE!

Ready to sign up?

To qualify for your completely FREE 6-month membership of Amazon Student, you must have a valid .edu email address and you’ll need to specify your college, year, and major.

After your free 6-month trial ends, you’ll automatically continue receiving Amazon Prime benefits at the discounted student cost of just $6.49 per month OR $59 per year with automatic renewal – but you can cancel at ANY time. Verified students are eligible to receive the Prime Student discount for four years or until graduation — whichever comes first. After that, the membership will auto-renew at the regular cost of $119 per year.

    I got an email saying mine will renew on June 7, 2018 but my price won’t increase until June 7, 2019.

    • teamdrake2009

      Interesting. Maybe because they weren’t able to give you 30 days notice before the increase. My email says $59 starting September 2018.

      • Michelle

        Good point, didn’t think about that.

      • Sara

        You get the old price if your renewal date is before the effective date for the new rate. It has nothing to do with how far in advance you were notified. My regular membership renews on June 15th, so I get the old $99 rate instead of the new $119 rate that goes into effect on June 16th.

    Just a heads up. My 4 yr Student Prime expired (I wasnt paying attention) and I was charged the full $105.00 today.

    • Lynn

      Same here 🙁

    • Karen

      I wasn’t paying attention and got charged for my prime renewal last week. I just enrolled in school again so I was planning on switching to a student account. I called and explained this to them and they refunded me immediately. You should be able to call and get the money back.

    I got an email today stating ~The price of the annual Prime Student membership increased from $49 to $59 on May 11, 2018. Your renewal on May 18, 2018 will be at $49. The new price will apply to your renewals starting May 18, 2019.

    Do you know if you have a regular membership can you switch to a student membership? I just started grad school.

    • Jenna

      Yes, you can! I did it last year when I started grad school and they actually refunded the difference since I had recently renewed my regular Prime account. But just be careful, I got an e-mail confirming my Prime Student was renewed from Feb 2018-Feb 2019 but since I had used 4 years of Student Prime (the max number of years you can use it unbeknownst to me) in my undergrad, the Student Prime expired after 1 month and they started charging me monthly for a regular Prime account which ended up being way more costly than if I had just kept my original membership. I was very disappointed when I realized almost a year later (grad school keeps ya busy) and they said there was nothing they could do even though I had all of the chat transcripts and e-mails that said it was renewed for a year! So disappointed!

        Use a different email and create a new amazon acct so you can do the student

    • barbara

      No you have to cancel and switch to a student membership.

  5. wendy

    Yes, I did that last year when I went back to school.

  6. Mamamia

    I also received an email saying I won’t be charged the new price until 2019

  7. Mary

    Awesome, I have Amazon Prime but I am elegible for Student Amazon Prime (I didn’t know I could get a discount with my student email)
