Amazon Prime membership is now available with Rs 500 cashback. The e-commerce giant has introduced a new offer called Amazon Prime Youth Offer where select users can get the subscription for 50 percent of the actual cost.
For the uninitiated, Amazon Prime is the membership that gives access to free one-day and two-day delivery of your orders. The membership also includes access to streaming video service called Amazon Prime Video and streaming music service called Amazon Music. You can also get access to gaming and Kindle content with the subscription, plus early access to sales.
What is Amazon Prime Youth Offer?
Amazon Prime membership is available in the form of monthly and annual subscription. The monthly subscription is priced at Rs 129 while the yearly subscription is available for Rs 999. However, with Amazon Prime Youth Offer, the annual subscription is available for just Rs 499. The offer is available for youths in the country, i.e., those in the age group of 18 to 24 years old.
How to avail Amazon Prime Youth Offer?
The process to avail Amazon Prime Youth Offer is rather easy. Here is how anyone fulfilling the age criteria can get this offer.
- Go to the Amazon Prime website and login with your existing account or create a new account
- Start your 30-day free trial or join a year of Prime at Rs 999 if you used a free trial before
- Now, verify your age by submitting one identity proof and a selfie
- You will get Rs 500 as Amazon Pay cashback instantly upon successful age-verification and once your paid membership starts
One important factor you need to keep in mind is that this offer is valid only on verifying your age with 15 days of joining Prime. In addition to this offer, Amazon is also giving offers worth Rs 999 when people join Prime by paying Rs 999. These offers are available in the form of cashback from partners including Swiggy, Domino’s, Urban Company and others. HDFC Bank is also offering 3-month free membership to Amazon Prime to select credit card users.
Amazon does give offers on Prime subscriptions from time to time, but the Youth Offer seems to be the best way to save money on an annual membership.
