    I have Amazon prime but i have never done the student deal would i have to open a new account?

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      Yes, it is for new accounts, mommymomma!

    • Briana

      You can add your student email for verification purpose. And they’ll refund you for the promotion period.

  2. Wendy

    Wish they would do this for military as well.

  3. Krystal

    I actually already had membership but it let me update it anyways to student membership. So try and see what happens

  4. Kelly

    The only thing to keep in mind, the reason I haven’t done it yet, is that you can’t share the account with your spouse. My husband has so many subscriptions, it wouldn’t make sense to cancel his account for mine.

    We switched to the student membership when my husband enrolled in college last year! We have all the same benefits we used before and are paying half the price now 🙂
