How to get Amazon Prime for free for the Prime Early Access Sale 2022

Post by admin »

Amazon’s Prime Early Access Sale 2022 is happening in the fall this year and as always, you’ll need to be a Prime member to partake of the deals. Prime is Amazon’s $139-per-year service that provides two-day shipping on all orders, as well as a ton of extras like the Kindle lending library and Prime Video. (See our rundown of the top 9 Amazon Prime benefits to learn more.)

The good news is that you may not need to pay for membership at all if you just want it long enough to take advantage of Amazon’s annual shopping extravaganza. Here are a few ways to get a short-term Prime membership to cash in on the savings.

Method One: The standard 30-day free trial
If you’ve never tried Amazon Prime or haven’t tried it in a while, you may be eligible for a free, 30-day trial. After the 30 days, Amazon will charge you for the membership—either $15 per month or $139 per year—so don’t forget to cancel before the trial is up.

Figuring out if you’re eligible is simple. Just sign in to your Amazon account and visit the Prime membership landing page. If you see a button that says Try Prime, click it to sign up. If the button says Get started, then you’ve been to the well one too many times recently, and you’ll have to wait to become eligible again.

Method Two: Prime Student 6-month free trial
Amazon has a student program that offers both a free trial that lasts for six months and 50 percent off the regular price for Prime membership. If you’re in college, the Prime Early Access Sale 2022 could be a great time to gear up.

Amazon’s Prime Student signup option.
To qualify for Prime Student, you need to be enrolled in at least one course in an institution in the United States or Puerto Rico, provide proof of enrollment if requested, and a valid .EDU email address. To get started, go to the Prime Student landing page and click Start your 6-month trial.

After your trial is up, Prime Student costs $7.50 per month or $69 per year. Make sure you mark the end date on your calendar (or just cancel any time after the Prime Early Access Sale 2022), and your membership will continue to the end of the trial period. The Prime Student discounted rate is good for up to four years.

Other avenues for free Amazon Prime
There are other ways to get Prime for free as well, but they’re not as straightforward. You can, for example, open a new account with a different email address, and then try Prime on that new account. Keep in mind, however, that means you have to secure another account containing all your payment information.

The Amazon Prime Rewards Visa Signature card.

If someone in your house is already subscribed to Prime, they can share it with your account. Amazon allows you to share a Prime membership with other members of your household, including one other adult and up to four kids aged 13 to 17. Teen accounts don’t get to share Prime exclusive deals, but the second adult account does. This is only an option for family (or trusted friends), as both adult accounts must agree to share the same payment details.

You can also sign up for Prime and apply for the Amazon Prime Rewards Visa card, which gives you 5 percent cash-back on Amazon and Whole Foods purchases. If you’re already buying at least $2,400 per year from Amazon and Whole Foods combined, this is an easy way to have your credit card benefits pay for your Prime membership.

How to cancel an Amazon Prime free trial
Some of you might love Prime or Prime Student so much that you stick with it to get that free shipping and other perks. But if you’re a hardcore deal hunter who just wants to bail from Prime when the deals are gone, here’s what to do.

The standard way to dump Prime is to hover over your account name in the upper-right corner of any Amazon page, and then select Your Prime Membership from the drop-down menu. You can then cancel on the next page.

An easier way, however, is just to go straight to this Amazon help page and click End Membership. Regardless of how you begin the cancellation process, it’s straightforward—you’re free and clear once you’ve done it.

For reference, the two day shipping with Prime is once they process the order, and since the Covid pandemic that almost never happens in a time manner where you'd actually get your order within two days of placing it. Since the changes caused by the pandemic, I've not received a single order within two days of placing it, yet prior to the pandemic I almost always did.

Still, not having to make a $25 or $35 minimum for free shipping still makes it worth it, especially if you place orders often, and once the orders ship they do tend to arrive within two or three days.

But, as it stands today, getting your order within two days of placing it appears to be a thing of the past.

Please be aware that Amazon hopes that you carry on with Prime but you can cancel straight away but you still get 30 days of prime to use and then know it wont charge you at the end :-)
