Sign Up for the Amazon Prime Free Trial

Amazon Prime Free Trial members enjoy all the same benefits as paid members.

If you haven't been an Amazon Prime member in the last 12 months, you can sign up for a free trial. You can only sign up for one free trial every 12 months.

To sign up for the Amazon Prime free trial, your account must have a current, valid credit card.

To sign up for the Amazon Prime free trial:

  1. Go to Amazon Prime.
  2. Select Start my free trial.
  3. Follow the on-screen instructions if prompted.


  • You need a current, valid payment card to sign up for Amazon Prime. Payment options, such as pre-paid credit cards or Gift Cards can't be used to purchase a membership.
  • While you won't be charged for your free trial, membership is converted to a paid membership plan at the end of the trial period. For more information, go to End Your Amazon Prime Membership.
  • We consider your free or paid membership history, as well as a number of other factors, when determining whether you're eligible for an Amazon Prime free trial.
  • For more information, go to Amazon Prime.

Amazon Prime six-month trial memberships through Prime Student offer a range of Amazon Prime benefits. Learn more about Prime Student.
