what happens if you change the email address after a month

You do get it, those who signed up for the 6 month trial before prime came to canada don't get it but for those new signing up now will get prime included.

Are you saying you're getting prime video during the trial peroid?

Amazon student signup page indicated in the fine print no prime video during trial period.

In theory, it is for college and university student.
You can always try or ask support to see if your school is accepted!

I don't know if this makes a difference, but I live in Quebec where we get 18 months instead of 6 months trial + 1 year.

The school email doesn't have to be your primary email address on the account. You only have to provide it to prove that you've got a valid student email address, that's it.

Is this deal still going on? My sister who lives with me goes to University. How does she sign up? So you get 6 months free trial? Does prime mean there is no minimum for free shipping? How much will it cost after 6 months are over?

All of your questions are answered in the very first post (or the link in the first post), but here - I'll be nice:

1 - Per the link in the first post, yes
2 - Sign up via the link in the first post
3 - Per the first post, yes you get 6 months free
4 - For prime-eligible items, correct. No minimum for free shipping.
5 - Per the first post, $39/year for up to four years.
