This year, as always, Amazon will be slashing prices on many of its products for Prime members during its Prime Day sales on Tuesday, July 12th, and Wednesday, July 13th.

There are tons of other benefits like free one-day delivery, two-hour grocery delivery, premium streaming services, etc that entice people to jump on board.

But, how do I sign up for Amazon Prime to get the advantage of all these benefits?

How to Sign Up for Amazon 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 in 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.

Amazon offers a variety of Prime plans
Amazon Prime plans.

Click on the “Try Prime free for 30 days” to get started. You can either sign up for the basic plan for $139/year or $14.99/month, which comes out to $180/year.

You get one month free though with the monthly membership. But the annual membership is still a better deal.

If you’re a student or enrolled in at least one course in the U.S or Puerto Rico you can sign up for Prime Student.

You’ll get a free six-month trial subscription and, after that, you can enjoy this sweet discount of $69 for the annual membership or a monthly payment of $7.49.

If you sign up for the annual plan, you will save $70, whereas if you sign up for the monthly plan, you will save $7.5.

If you’re receiving any government assistance like Medicaid or have an Electronic Benefits Transfer (EBT) card you can enjoy a $6.99 monthly Prime membership with a free 30-day free trial.

Is your birthday around the corner? Someone kind can gift you a Prime membership for one-year Prime membership ($139) or a three-month Prime membership ($49).

Remember to cancel your membership before your trial ends if you think Amazon Prime is not worth it, otherwise you’ll be charged.
