Amazon Canada Now Offers Monthly Prime Membership Option For Students

By Thomas Kenzaki

Being a student these days can be really expensive. Amazon Canada wants to make it a little easier on college or university students by offering a flexible new monthly Prime membership plan. For just $3.99 a month you’ll enjoy all Prime member benefits plus exclusive student deals and offers.

Amazon Prime membership is regularly $7.99 a month (or $79.99 yearly) so student Prime membership pricing works out to being half off. Amazon Canada already offered yearly student Prime membership for $39 but those not needing it year round may benefit from the flexibility of a monthly subscription.

Students signing up for Amazon Prime will also receive their first 6-months free as an introductory trial offer. All that’s needed to sign up is a school email address.

For those new to Amazon Prime, it offers many great benefits such as unlimited free 2-day shipping and access to Amazon’s Netflix-like streaming service, Prime Video. Here’s a full list of the benefits that come with having an Amazon Prime account:

  • Fast, Free Shipping: Unlimited FREE Two-Day Shipping on millions of items
  • Even Faster, Free Shipping: FREE One-Day Shipping in select cities and FREE Same-Day Delivery if shipping to Toronto or Vancouver on eligible orders
  • Prime Video: Instant access to movies and TV shows including popular licensed content plus critically-acclaimed and award-winning Prime Original Series and Movies from Amazon Studios like The Grand Tour, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel and Tom Clancy's Jack Ryan (also now included in the six-month trial sponsored by UGO)
  • Deals and Special Offers: Exclusive student deals and offers including discounts on selected textbooks (for a limited time use TEXT10 at checkout), fashion and much more
  • Twitch Prime: Enjoy a selection of free games and in-game loot
  • Amazon Photos: Securely store existing photo collections, automatically upload new photos taken and access them anytime, anywhere, at no cost
