Get a Free Month of Amazon Prime Membership

Just in time for Black Friday, new customers can get Amazon Prime membership free for a month. And some shoppers can get Prime for just $6.99 per month.

Eyeing an Amazon Prime Membership? Amazon, the giant e-commerce shopping site, is crushing it this Black Friday by offering a 30-day free trial to check out all the Prime member benefits without paying a cent. 

Amazon Prime membership deals

  • New members who are not students or on government assistance can get Prime for 30 days free through the Amazon Prime membership offer. After the 30-day trial period, there are two membership options.
    • Monthly: Sign up for a new subscription for $14.99 per month (totaling almost $180 per year).
    • Annual: Pay a whole year at once for the discounted price of $139; that's a savings of about $40 over the monthly rate.
  • Qualified Government Assistance: For certain customers (receiving Medicaid, SNAP or other qualifying government assistance), sign up for Amazon Prime for just $6.99 per month. That’s savings of just over $8 — or 50% off —  the regular price.
  • Student: If you’re under 24 or a college student, you may qualify for the Amazon Prime Student discount, which offers several benefits. First, you get six months of free access to Amazon Prime without having to pay a penny. After that, Amazon’s student pricing gets you a Prime membership for just $7.49 per month. You will also get free food delivery through GrubHub+, 10% off flights and hotels, and more. To qualify for the Prime student discount, enter proof of age or proof of enrollment in an accredited college program.
