How to get an Amazon Prime subscription for free in Nigeria. In this post, we’ll go through how you can get Amazon Prime for free if you don’t want to just yet commit to a monthly subscription.
Earlier last month, Amazon Prime Video announced the launch of the localized version of its streaming service in one of Africa’s biggest markets: Nigeria. The tech giant is endeavoring to expand its subscriber push in new markets like Africa by advancing its investment in local production and introducing discounted Amazon Prime membership offerings to customers.

If you want to just sign up to take advantage of Prime Early Access Sale discounts (including early Prime Early Access Sale deals that are already live) and that’s it, a free 30-day trial is the way to go.
Those totally new to Amazon Prime membership, or anyone who hasn’t been a member in the last 12 months, are eligible for a 30-day trial. Be sure to set a reminder for when your trial ends so you can cancel before it’s up and you’re charged for more time.
Note that you’ll need to use a credit card to set up your trial membership.

Students get an even better deal: they can sign up for a six-month free trial. To switch your membership or sign up for Amazon Prime Student, you’ll need a valid .edu email. Navigate to the Prime Student page and login or sign up.
From there, Amazon will ask for an intended graduation year. If you’re an active student with access to your university email, this offer is open to you. If you don’t have a .edu email address, you can sign up using an alternate form of proof of enrollment like a school ID card or an up-to-date transcript.
