Amazon Prime Day Starts July 16, 2018

When I went to Amazon last night, I saw Amazon Prime Day announcement with the start date of July 16, 2018. To take advantage of Prime Day deals, you will need to be an Amazon Prime member. If you aren’t currently a member or haven’t been a member in a while, you can usually get a free trial period (looks like 30 days on my account). Just remember to cancel it with enough time before the trial ends not to be billed if you don’t want to keep it. If you decide to keep it, you can go with monthly billing ($12.99/month) or annual billing ($119/year). (not an affiliate link – alternatively go to and look for Prime Day information).

I am not seeing it on my account, but Amazon offered Amazon Prime for Students; which is good for up to 4 years and it is set up to auto-renew with regular Amazon Prime after the fourth year.

Here are the conditions listed:


To sign up for and use Prime Student, you must (1) have an account, (2) be a college student actively enrolled in at least one course at a college geographically located in one of the 50 United States, the District of Columbia, or Puerto Rico, (3) be able to provide proof of enrollment upon request and (4) have a valid e-mail address that contains the domain suffix .edu. We may accept or refuse membership in our sole discretion. We may ask you to furnish documentation supporting your eligibility. If you do not provide documentation indicating that you meet the eligibility requirements above, you may be required to reimburse us for benefits you received as a result of your Prime Student membership. The Prime Student membership is for personal use only and may not be used to purchase products or services for the purpose of resale. You may not transfer or assign your Prime Student membership or the benefits associated with a Prime Student membership. You may not use your student e-mail address for more than one Prime Student membership. You may not enroll in Prime Student more than once.

I am not sure what Amazon means by not enrolling in Prime Student more than once as the wording could have numerous meanings.
