    Basically, I got a link for a year of student prime for free from HSBC, but I was wondering if I use my trial first and then activate it, will it only start the membership once my trial runs out?

    Looking through the terms and conditions, i found this:

    "11. If you are already an Amazon Student trial member, Amazon
    will add on an additional 12 months of trial membership to youraccount after your existing trial expires. "

    I've just applied my gift voucher, so will keep you posted what happens (says up to 5 days for the prime to take affect.

    One thing i did not realise was that this is also amazon student, not prime, so you also don't get the kindle lender's library. Not exactly a deal breaker but still annoying.
