Amazon Prime for Students : 6 Months Free

Third Level students in Ireland can now get a 6 months FREE trial of Amazon Prime.
If you are a student and you use Amazon – this is a great deal.
On the Student Amazon Prime sign up page – at first glance it looks like it might just be for students at UK universities  – but the free trial is definitely available to students who are studying in the Republic of Ireland .  More details here.

Amazon Prime for Irish residents now includes FREE 2 day delivery to Ireland on all Prime Eligible items (and there are loads of them). No minimum order value applies.
(Free next day delivery to the UK is also included.)

After the trial is over – Prime membership will cost £3.99 per month for Students .  (This is half the normal price.) You can easly cancel the trial before the 6 months is up and you won’t have to pay anything. (Could be useful for the Christmas shopping !)

Amazon Prime also comes with access to hundreds of free films and TV programs for streaming. The number of videos available to Irish members is not a big as it is for UK based members – but hey .. it’s free for 6 months.

Sadly – Amazon Prime in Ireland doesn’t include the FREE Prime Music … that is only for UK residents.  But Irish residents can get Amazon Music Unlimited – with a Free 1 month trial here

Non students in Ireland can get a 30 day free trial of Amazon Prime  (More about that here.)


To sign up for and use Prime Student, you must
