Just wanted to pass along the information on this Student Prime deal from Amazon for those of you who are enrolled in college or graduate school: You can get a six-month FREE trial of Amazon Prime that includes free two-day shipping on your purchases with no minimum order! (Perfect for ordering your textbooks – and you can save up to 40% on them!) Amazon also offers special deals and discounts for students, and pays you a $10 credit when you refer a friend!
When the six-month trial ends, you can then enroll in Amazon Prime for just $49 (half off the normal $99 rate) and receive: unlimited instant streaming of their 41,000 movies & TV episodes; unlimited, ad-free access to over a million songs and hundreds of playlists; free unlimited photo storage in Cloud Drive; and a free monthly download of one of over 500,000 Kindle books.
Sound good? Unfortunately I’m not a college student, so I’m paying full price for my Prime membership, but maybe you qualify for the discount!
From the Amazon website:
Your Amazon Student membership starts once you’ve filled out the application form and your .edu email address is validated. You can enjoy all the benefits of being an Amazon Student member, even if you don’t have a .edu email address! If you’re able to provide proof of enrollment in at least one course at a college or university located in one of the 50 states or the District of Columbia, you may be eligible to enroll in Amazon Student through an alternative process. To provide proof of enrollment, please send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org from the e-mail address associated with your Amazon.com account. In the message, include a scan, photo or screenshot of one of the following:
• Your student ID displaying the current term or an expiration date; just a student ID number is not valid
• Your transcript or class list for the current term with your name and your school’s name on it
• Your tuition bill for the current term with your name and your school’s name on it
• An official acceptance letter for the upcoming term (must include matriculation date)
If we determine you’re eligible, we’ll send you a follow-up email within 3-5 business days that contains a link which allows you to complete the signup process without a .edu email address.
