Amazon Prime Student FAQs

What is the Amazon Prime student price?

After the six months of free two-day shipping from Amazon Canada, your Student Prime account will automatically renew unless you choose to unsubscribe. However, instead of paying the full price of $79 per year, students will only pay $39 per year for Amazon Prime.

To sign up for your free six-months of Amazon Student Prime, you will need to:

  • have an Amazon Canada account
  • be a college, university or CEGEP student enrolled in at least one course
  • be able to provide proof of enrollment if requested
  • have a valid college, university, or CEGEP email address (and access to that account)

How much is the Amazon Prime student discount in Quebec?

This offer is available across the country, but it is done slightly different for residents of Quebec. If you are schooling in Quebec, you can sign up for Amazon Student and you will receive an 18-month membership with the first 6 months at no charge. They will not bill your credit card until the first six months are over, and you can cancel at any time.

    This is a terrible way for students to be initiated in the consumer driven society. Just as credit card companies do their best to sign up students by offering incentives Amazon has now learnt a new trick. We should not encourage this

      You present very valid points Joe, but good parents will teach kids about proper credit card use and consumerism. I had a joint credit card with my parents at age 14 and currently live debit free because I was taught proper money management skills. At the same time, just because someone is a student doesn't mean they are green - fresh out of high school. I worked for five years before entering university, and such incentives like this, when properly managed, really help out students.
