How To Get A Free Medium Membership In 2021

Is there a way to get a free Medium membership? Actually, there is, but this might be a monkey’s claw type of moment where your wish isn’t granted exactly how you want it to be.

Keep reading.

Is There A Medium Free Trial?

As of this moment, there is no Medium free trial to speak of. There’s no way you can get a Medium Membership for, let’s say, a 7-day trial. I wish it were the case, though.

If You Gift A Medium Membership, That Will Work

Medium gives you the option to gift a Medium membership. If you gift a membership to someone else, obviously they’ll get it for free since you’re the one paying for it. To gift a Medium membership, simply go to “" and follow the instructions.

Is There Such Thing As A Medium Premium Account?

There’s not really anything called a Medium premium account or a Medium pro account. I guess a Medium Membership would be considered a Medium premium account, but they don’t really call it that.

How To Get Medium For Free

If you want to know how to get Medium for free, I got news for you..

You won’t be able to get it for free anywhere.

There is no Medium student discount or Medium coupon code or any way to get your Medium subscription for free.

I’m sorry to be the one to tell you this, but that’s a fact about the Medium Membership—there are no backdoor internet Medium coupon codes to find.

With that said, the title of this article IS ‘How To Get A Free Medium Membership,’ and to me there’s a great—albeit unorthodox—way you can pull this off. You can call it a Medium student discount, or whatever you want.

It requires a little creativity, humility, and a pinch of work to pull off.

You ready? Let’s go.

Write Something You’re Proud Of

Okay, so the cool thing about Medium is it allows anyone—regardless of whether they’re a member or not, to publish locked stories.

What’s a locked story? Read that post from me to find out..

Literally anybody can start making money on Medium if they just gave it a try and published a locked story.

Furthermore, I’ve seen a lot of people get started on Medium during the last year and make good money the first month they published locked stories.

In fact, I made $4,000 with one story on the Partner Program once.

Publish Something You’re Proud Of As A Locked Story

My advice to you?

Have a little fun, write about something you want, and publish your first locked story.

Make sure to tag it with a few top tags and maybe even publish it in a publication to get some more reach.

1-2 stories may be all it takes for you to make at least $5 in one single month. How’s that for a Medium student discount?

And guess what, if you’re doing this, you just won yourself a month of Medium for free.

That’s how to get a free Medium Membership in a nutshell!

It’s not even like you’re doing a lot of work—you’ll probably just write a post about your life, have more fun than you thought you would, and then publish it for people to read.

All without spending a dime, by the way. Once you make that first $5, congratulations, you can now become a Medium Member for 0 dollars.

And who knows, you may stick with it and end up making WAY more than $5 per month in the coming weeks. It’s totally up to you.

In Conclusion

There is no proper way to get a free Medium Membership unless someone decides to gift you a Medium subscription. Even then it’s not free. If you want to learn more ways to read Medium stories for free, though, take a look at this story I recently updated.
