That's a good question. I didn't have much luck getting Amazon Prime free again after my 1 month trial -- I believe they track it using your credit card information as well as your name and address. It definitely does not hurt to give it a shot to create another account for the free Amazon Prime. This was a while back -- maybe a couple years ago. By now I am pretty sure Amazon has found the loopholes in its system for getting Amazon Prime indefinitely with free trials.
If I remember correctly, the last time for free trial is you have to put in your credit card information and you have to cancel it after the trial ends otherwise it will charge you the 1 year Prime fee. Haven't seen any free Amazon Prime -- only the Amazon Prime for students (so you can register a .edu account with Amazon and they will give you a year free). This version of Prime doesn't offer the whole benefits of Amazon Prime such as video streaming from Amazon's video library.

Quick question here. I have used Amazon prime for 1 month free last year. However, i still have the email address of an edu account when i graduated college a few years back. Will i be able to take advantage of this? Also, how long will it last? Would it be better if i do this with another credit card? I have 2 credit cards.
