Other Ways to Avoid Paying the New $99 Amazon Prime Rate:

Sign Up for Prime Now
New Amazon Prime Members can lock in existing rates by signing up for the service no later than Wednesday, March 19. Students who sign up by then will get a free six-month trial, and when that period ends, they’ll be charged $39 for that first year of service (and $49 thereafter until graduation).

Buy an Amazon Prime Gift Membership for Yourself
Buy an Amazon Prime Gift membership for yourself. Purchasers are allowed to specify the starting date of Prime membership up to one year in advance of the date it’s bought. The idea is that you purchase a gift membership—for yourself—that starts the day after your current membership is set to expire. Again you need to make the gift purchase by March 19 to lock in the cheaper rate.

Free Shop Runner if you Have an American Express Card
If you are an American Express Cardholder, get a complimentary ShopRunner membership as long as you keep an eligible American Express Card as your default card in Express Checkout at ShopRunner. When you are signing up, you will be asked to verify that you are an American Express Card member by filling out a form with your American Express card info. Keep in mind that your American Express Card number is required to validate that you have an eligible American Express Card. Your Card will never be billed without your authorization. Once you have verified your account, you will be able to finish your free enrollment.
