The monthly membership plan for Amazon Prime usually costs Rs. 299, while the annual plan is priced at Rs. 1,499. Subscribing to Prime comes with a range of benefits, including free delivery, early access to the sale, and access to Prime Video and Amazon Music.
To cater to users aged between 18 and 24, Amazon has announced the Prime Youth offer. This offer provides a cashback of Rs. 150 and Rs. 750 on the monthly and annual subscription plans for Amazon Prime, respectively.
What is Amazon Prime Youth Offer?
Amazon Prime membership is available in the form of monthly, quarterly and annual subscriptions. The monthly subscription is priced at Rs 179 while the three-month subscription is priced at Rs 459. The annual subscription from the e-commerce giant will set you back by Rs 1,499. However, with Amazon Prime Youth Offer, the annual subscription is available for just Rs 749. The offer is available for youths in the country, i.e., those in the age group of 18 to 24 years old.
If you purchase the one-month subscription priced at Rs 179 then Amazon India will give a cashback of Rs 90, which translates to an effective price of Rs 89 per month. With the three-month subscription priced at Rs 459, there is a cashback of Rs 230. This brings the effective of 3 months Amazon Prime membership down to Rs 229. This is the lowest price you can get on Prime membership across tiers in the country.
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 subscribe to any of the three tiers of membership if you used a free trial before
- Now, verify your age by submitting one age proof (such as Driving License, Aadhaar Card, election card) and a selfie
- If you have already updated your KYC documents, then the same can be used to verify the age
- You will get Rs 90 or Rs 230 or Rs 750 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 within 15 days of joining Prime. 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.
