Free Amazon Prime for College Students

Oh man this is such a great deal if you are a student or have any college kids in the family!

Amazon is offering one free year of Prime membership ($79 value) when you simply register and provide your college and your major.  You will need a .edu email address to verify your status- so sadly those of us that are students of life do not qualify.

You also need an Amazon account and that is it.  Now the fantastic thing about this is that Prime memberships can be shared amongst family members- so sign up those kiddos and get them to share it with you!

If you haven’t tried Prime before here is why it is fabulous:

:: You can order ANY amount you want of items Amazon carries and get it shipped free!!  Some 3rd party providers have their own shipping fees but the majority of items you find you don’t need a $25 minimum.  I have literally ordered things that were less than $1 and had them shipped free!

::Your shipping is upgraded to 2 day air (this is AWESOME during the holidays!)

::You can get stuff sent overnight for $3.99 total!  (This was a lifesaver when our camera broke on vacation last year!)

So Amazon isn’t paying me to rave about this- I am overly excited because my free Prime trial ended and I miss it dearly.

You can head over here to get started with your account.
