Update: The referral program is not currently available.
The Amazon Student Referral offer has gotten even better – you can now score a $5 credit plus a FREE 6 month trial of Amazon Prime! Here’s how:
Get a $5 Amazon Credit for every friend you refer to Amazon Student. Plus, your friend will receive a free $5 credit just for signing up through your link! Students with a valid .edu email address and currently enrolled in a college or university are eligible for Amazon Student and will receive a FREE 6 month Trial of Amazon Prime.
Other benefits include:
- Amazon Prime shipping benefits free for six months – FREE Two-Day Shipping and FREE Release-Date Delivery on video games, DVDs, books and more
- Deals and promotions exclusively for Students – e-mail alerts for discounts and promotions
Sign up here for Amazon Student if you are a student.
Keep in mind that once your FREE 6 months are over, you will automatically continue receiving Amazon Prime benefits at a cost of $49 per year (half-off the regular price of $99) for up to four years with automatic renewal unless you cancel.
Then head over here for your referral link and to check the status of your credits.
Note: Due to state restrictions, members with active addresses in Arkansas, Louisiana, Maine, Missouri, Rhode Island, or Vermont aren’t eligible to receive referral credits. You can still use your links to invite your friends though!
Please note that this offer my change at any time!
