5 Ways to Get Free Amazon Prime

1. Sign Up for an Amazon Prime Free Trial

The easiest way to get free Prime is to sign up for a trial on Amazon's website. It only takes a few minutes, and you'll have free Prime for 30 days. At that time, you can choose to continue your subscription using the annual or monthly option, or cancel right away without paying a dime.

2. Use Another Email Address for More Free Prime

When you sign up for the 30-day trial, you'll be prompted to enter your email address. But what if 30 days isn't enough or you need a bit more time to get a feel for Prime? You can sign up again using a different email address.

However, this means you'll need to create another profile and enter your payment methods again, which may or may not be worth the hassle.

3. Do a Free Amazon Prime Student Trial

If you're a college student who's interested in a Prime membership, you can take advantage of a 6-month Prime trial instead of a 30-day one. Once it ends, you can pay monthly or annually for Prime Student until you graduate or four years are up — whichever one comes first.

Do you have an American Express card, or plan to apply for one in the near future? Depending on the card, you may be eligible for up to one year of free Amazon Prime or Business Prime.
