Amazon Announcement

Hi Everyone – we are excited to announce the launch of a new purchasing program between ECSU and Amazon Business Prime through the CSCU system wide account. This provides a similar shopping experience to our current account, but you now have access to Business Prime shipping paid for by the CSCU system and centralized sales tax exemption. This new program Offers ECSU a significant cost savings by consolidating our prime memberships and also simplifies your purchasing process allowing you to take advantage of Amazon’s wide product selection and competitive prices. Going forward, all ECSU Amazon purchases should be made through this new, central Amazon Business Prime account.

Additional benefits include:

  • Free 2-Day shipping on Prime-eligible item.
  • Automatic tax-exempt purchasing on items sold by LLC and participating 3rd party sellers.
  • Access to millions of additional products, available only to Business customers
  • Business-specific pricing, including quantity discounts on eligible items


This does not change your payment process if you have been using a p-card you will still utilize your p-card to pay for your purchases on Amazon, if you have had purchasing paying for the orders you will still have this option.

Going forward, all ECSU Amazon purchases should be made through this new central Amazon Business account. No individual paid prime accounts should be purchased.

All purchases made on this account must be shipped to ECSU Campus locations Willimantic, CT. No home address.
