Any hacks to get a student email address for Amazon Prime?

Does anyone have any hacks to generate a student email address to use for Amazon Prime? There are lots of methods for edu emails on slickdeals, but nothing in Canada

No, you need to have an educational email account, but technically you don't use it as your main account.


So if you pay a student to borrow their email, it could work, but I don't know. Do you have any friends or family who are in post secondary school?

The free trial for students is 6 months instead of the usual 30 days.

FYI. Student membership doesn’t get Amazon Family discount.

4 years of university in Canada is nowhere near 50K. Try 20-25.

I used my old school email account.
I haven't been a student for 4 years now, but the account is still active. It also worked to get the Spotify Student account too :)

As far as I know, theres now way around of making a fake email address with the school.
Perhaps a friend can give theirs?

I would assume you can sign up for a class then submit a refund request within their window and have it refunded. Many schools give email addresses upon enrollment (as you need to have one for their online classes). I cannot help further because I do not think what you are doing is right, but there are many schools that operate this way now that email is free for them with Office365/Gmail.

Not necessarily. I got a student email by signing up for continuing ed classes which is like under $1000 and possibly supplemented by work.
I can't get it to work properly, which is another story, but I got the UTORid.
