I think this is widely known on HUKD already.

News for me,heat

You also forgot to mention it's half price after the free 6 months.

And dony you get discount on certain products also?

That's because usually people get the 6 months then leave. Better to get 6 months than 1 - month prime membership.

​What about the people each day that are new to this site? Or do we just want to keep this to us more experience members and let the new ones work it for out themselves?

Heat BTW X)

Unfortunately I think they fixed the old tricks to getting an .ac.uk account without being a student.

How does this work if I'm a prime number and already paid for the year. My daughter is off to uni next week, so could I use her email address and get a refund on what I've paid or is it best to wait till my year has run out.
Does every email from amazon then go to my daughters uni email as well ?

Also a good alternative to Netflix, Amazon Video just as good.

You don't actually need an .ac.uk email address either. Assuming you've bought an NUS extra card (legitimately of course, ahem), you can email a photo of it to [email protected]amazon.co.uk and they'll give you the 6 months free trial and reduced subscription thereafter.

I would cancel and get my money back from the year you've paid, then sign your daughter up for a new account using her new uni email.

That certainly worked for me. I am just coming to the end of the 6 months free trial. I haven't decided, but I suspect that I will also take out the 12 months subscription at half price.

Not sure many people would agree. I find that there are far too many titles that are available under Amazon Video but which are not included in the Prime membership.

Amazon Prime Video is OK as part of the overall Prime bundle but definitely not worth the Prime subscription on its own.

I agree, but you can't get a 6-month free trial to Netflix. Most I've seen Netflix offering is 2 months.

Had poor experience with Amazon prime. Took money eventhough I cancelled the trial well before and was a hassle to get the money back.

Just been on to them and they won't refund anything even though I've had it only 4 months. They said I've used all the benefits. I did ask about the monthly payments but as I paid for the year I've lost out

They cant take your money if you cancel your trial before it ends. They even refund you if you forget to cancel your trial and then get charged, as long as you haven't used the benefits of prime after the trial period.

You still have 8 months remaining, the best thing to do is use that up, then use your daughter's student account from now on. That will be free for 6 months then she will pay £3 per month after.

Best thing to do is get them on web chat and explain the situation, get your money back.

I'm 51 and never been to uni, but my daughter is still in uni and has access to a few .ac.uk addresses.
As far as Amazon is concerned I'm on a 6 year course.
All the money our household spends on Amazon we should get prime for free!!

Well, they took mine and had to spend about 2 hours getting it back with the aid of my bank who were very helpful

You can get a NUS card if you subscribe to a free online course from somewhere like the Shaw academy.. There's a thread somewhere about that..

You'll need a NUS card. Take a photo and send it to them. You'll get 6 months free prime, with 5% discount off of most thigns supplied by Amazon, and then half price per year for 2 years (correct me if I'm wrong....)

What's the catch with the Shaw academy? I've not heard about them before

I've got both and I'd say at a rough guess, 75% of my streaming viewing is on Netflix, 25% on Prime. But of course Prime has free music, delivery, Kindle stuff, etc. etc.

Nothing! I choose a free Beauty course and signed up to the NUS card.

How did you sign up for the NUS card? I've joined one of their free courses but nowhere can I find the option to sign up for the NUS card.
