If you have a .edu email and it won't work call or email Amazon and explain that to them and they might be able to help - https://www.amazon.com/gp/help/contact-us/general-questions.html?ie=UTF8&browse_node_id=518316

does this automatically cancel a year from now or do we have to call in?

If you log into your Amazon account, there's a page for Prime settings. By default, it'll be set to automatically renew and bill your credit card once the trial expires. You can uncheck it and incur no charges. If you forget to uncheck it and the notice the $79 charge, it can be refunded as long as you haven't used the Prime shipping since it renewed.

I just read something else that said this won't auto-renew; it'll just quit on you after the year. Now I'm not sure what to believe. BUT if I were you I'd log into your Amazon account and monitor the Prime settings just to be sure. I'm also a fan of setting a calendar alarm for approximately 350 days from your signup date do you don't forget to check on it.

Doesn't seem to work if your school as a subdomain in the email address - for example mine is @u.washington.edu Serious bummer :(

mrcartoon11 Jul 13, 2010
nope. mine is the same way, try it again, cuz mine is @csu.fullerton.edu and it works, do it on your computer, because I tried it on my iPhone and was having problems with it...

some amount will be refunded to you, prorated based on how long ago you purchased your membership at $79. 21.6ยข * days left on your paid membership = refund

My school is in the drop down list but they don't give us email accounts so I have no .edu address... what a bummer!

If your school is on the list, it should offer you a student .edu email inbox. Try contacting student services, you may have an email address but not know about it because they're normally only needed for online classes.

My school's email address goes through google, so its "g.schoolname.edu". Amazon says it was invalid. :( Lame!

No, the only email they will send to your edu address is the activation one. Other emails will be sent to your email associated with the Amazon account.
