Amazon Prime is an enticing program and you can really get used to getting a free 2-day shipping for anything you purchase.Plus, there are also some exclusive email deals from time to time.
Amazon is extending a free year of Amazon Prime for Students to students with a valid .edu email address. That is a $79 value for free!
Amazon will ask you to provide a college and major with the student registration along with the .edu email address. Unfortunately, as many deals go this applies to students in the US only as far as I can tell.
If you have never tried Amazon Prime before, you can get a free 30-day trial even if you are not a student.
