Students in Canada who use Amazon Prime can now sign up for a low-cost monthly plan without having to sign an annual contract.

Amazon Canada has just rolled out a membership option for students at $3.99, rather than the existing annual payment plan of $39.

“We are excited to see Prime Student resonate so well with students in Canada and are pleased to offer another flexible, monthly option at a low price of $3.99 per month,” said Mike Strauch, Country Manager for Amazon Canada.

“With Prime Video now included in their six-month trial, student members can start enjoying award-winning content from Amazon right away.”

A subscription to Amazon Prime gives post-secondary students free two-day shipping, access to the Prime Video platform and Twitch Prime for video games, Amazon Photo (a cloud-based storage space), and deals on textbooks, clothing, etc. specifically for students.

Anyone attending a two- or four-year post-secondary institution in the country can sign up using their school e-mail address. The company also offers a six-month trial at no cost.
