Learn how to become an Amazon Prime member for free and you'll shop Amazon.com with free 2-day shipping, 1-day shipping for just $3.99, a more convenient return policy, exclusive discounts, unlimited streaming of movies and TV shows and a Kindle book to borrow each month.
Amazon.com is the most popular store on BargainEZ and for good reason. Amazon rarely charges tax, often times has great prices on everything you could think of, from designer brands to diapers and grocery. Most of the time the only bargain killer is the shipping cost, but this is not something that many Amazon shoppers still have to deal with, thanks to Amazon Prime.
Amazon Prime is one of those services that once you discover, it gives you a taste of the future of online shopping. When you have millions of items to choose from, that ship free within 2 business days, you will find yourself a lot less often pushing a shopping cart through the aisle of your local stores. If 2-day shipping is not fast enough, with Amazon Prime you can get 1-day shipping for a low $3.99 and unlimited commercial-free video streaming of select movies and TV shows on the new Amazon Instant Video.
Amazon Prime currently costs $79/year, which means that if you place more than 10 orders a year at Amazon.com, you are likely to save more money by signing up for this membership than by paying the shipping charges for those 10 items. While that sounds tempting, read on as there are ways to get Amazon Prime for free:
Click here to view the Amazon Student page. You'll be given the opportunity at the top of the page to join Amazon Student and get the Amazon Prime shipping benefits, for free. You'll just need to select your school, major and provide an .edu email account where Amazon will send you an email confirmation. Amazon will not renew your membership automatically, and if you're already an Amazon Prime subscriber but wish to sign up for Amazon Student, you'll get the prorated membership amount in your account refunded.
If your college books are rotting in the garage, there's another opportunity to get Amazon Prime for free. Join Amazon Mom by clicking here, it's a program that gives the primary caregiver of a child, be it a mom, dad, grandma, aunt, sibling, etc., a free Amazon Prime membership for 3 months, after which it gets extended month by month if you spend at least $25 on baby supplies the month before. You can keep extending it like this for up to a year. Also, you get other benefits on baby supplies like various Amazon coupons and an up to 30% off discount on diapers and wipes.
Unless you've been an Amazon Prime member before, you can get a no-risk 1 month membership to Amazon Prime for free. Click here to start the trial - you won't need to cancel it the day before it expires, you can just set auto-renew to off in the Manage Your Prime Membership account and not have to worry about being billed at the end of the trial. Every now and then there's a 3-month trial surfacing, and when there is, we'll be sure to post it among with the other Amazon.com offers.
If neither of the above will land you a free Amazon Prime membership, consider asking someone that has either a paid or trial Amazon Prime account that is a family member or a co-worker, to share their Amazon Prime membership benefits with you. Sharing the Amazon Prime account with up to 4 additional family members living in the same household, or with up to 4 coworkers is covered by Amazon's terms here.
