Hold up, too much talking. How do I sign up for Amazon Prime?
Before everything, let’s clear out any confusion about pricing. You can either sign up for the $119 annual membership or pay $12.99 for the monthly membership, which will cost you $155.88 when you do the math. You get one month free though with the monthly membership. But still, the annual membership is a better deal.
If you’re a student or enrolled to at least one course in the U.S or Puerto Rico you can enjoy this sweet discount of $59 for the annual membership or a monthly payment of $6.49. You’ll end up saving $60 and $41.12 on the annual and monthly membership, respectively.
How to sign up for Prime
I’ll assume you already have an Amazon account, if not go ahead and create one. It’s free. Once you finish creating your account, click on the Try Prime button located on the upper left corner of the screen. It will take you to the Prime page, where you can pick up the plan that’s convenient for you.
Click on the “Start your 30-day free trial” to get started. Don’t forget to select the Prime Student option to get the 6-month free trial if you are a qualified student.
If you’re receiving any government assistance like Medicaid or have an Electronic Benefits Transfer (EBT) card you can enjoy a $5.99 monthly Prime membership.
Remember to cancel the service before your trial ends if for some reasons it’s not worth your money, otherwise you’ll be charged.
