You can try Prime free for 30 days
Luckily Amazon does offer a free 30-day trial for new subscribers. If you’re a student, you can try Amazon for six months free before being billed. You can sign up for Prime today and have access to all of the great deals tomorrow. If you don’t like it, simply cancel your subscription and you won’t be billed even if you do make a purchase on Prime Day.
