Only Amazon Prime members have access to Prime Day and the deals beforehand — if you plan to shop the sale, you need to make sure your account is set up. Amazon offers a few different types of memberships and all three allow you to shop on Prime Day:
- Standard Prime membership: $15 per month (or $139 annually)
- Prime student membership: $8 per month (or $69 annually)
- Discounted Prime membership for those enrolled in certain types of government assistant programs: $7 per month
Those who are new to Prime or have not been a member in the last 12 months are eligible for a free 30-day trial (note that you’ll need to use a credit card to set up your trial membership). Students are eligible for a free six-month trial as well. After the trial period, you’ll be charged a membership fee, but you can cancel before it’s up.
