After the 6 months you are given the option to upgrade to a full Amazon Prime membership for HALF the cost ($39 a year, as opposed to $79 a year)! And you get this price for 4 years!
The only downside is that you JUST get the shipping benefits, you do not get access to Amazon Instant Video that a regular Prime membership gives you. But you do have the option to upgrade to a full membership early on at the discounted rate if you wish to use Amazon Instant.
As long as you are an Amazon Student member, you cannot invite others to share Prime benefits with you like you would be able to with a regular Prime membership, even if you upgrade to the paid membership.
Below is my referral link, and I would really appreciate it if you used it to sign up! For every person that uses it I get $5 in Amazon credit
Anyone that signs up will also be given their own referral link they can use to earn credit!
P.S. You need to supply your college student e-mail address (ending in .edu) when you sign up!
As a thank you for anyone who uses my link, feel free to PM me with a link of your own and I will be more than happy to use it!
