Amazon.com is now offering free Prime memberships for college students. For those who do not know what Amazon Prime is, here are a few benefits:
Free 2-day shipping – Under normal conditions if you purchase items directly from Amazon (and not a 3rd party seller), you can get free shipping for orders of more than $25. However, with this option shipping can take 5-9 days. With an Amazon Prime account, you will automatically get free 2-day shipping on ALL orders directly from Amazon!
Upgrade to 1-day shipping for $3.99 per item
Ability to share your Prime benefits – Here is how Amazon explains it:
Prime members can share their benefits with up to 4 additional family members living in the same household, or up to 4 co-workers associated with a common Amazon Corporate Account.
Amazon Prime is great for those who order from Amazon often, or who usually require expedited shipping when they order. Prime membership is normally $79 for one year. However, Amazon is allowing all members of Amazon Student to get a free 1-year membership into Prime!
To sign up for Amazon Student you must use your school email (ending in “edu”) and give your school name and major. If you are already a Prime member and you sign up through Amazon Student, they will refund the remaining months of your current Prime membership.
If you are a college student, I suggest that you jump on this offer. You can get all of your textbooks, supplies, and even groceries shipped free in two days!
You can sign up using this link: Amazon Student
