A few months ago I learned about a special from Amazon called Amazon Student. It is essentially a striped-down version of the better known Amazon Prime service. After getting my special @umn.edu email address from the University of Minnesota, I signed up and I’ve enjoyed free two-day shipping for the last few weeks.
The program benefits:
Amazon Prime shipping benefits free for one year
- Unlimited FREE Two-Day Shipping on textbooks and millions of other items
- No minimum order size
- Upgrades to One-Day shipping for $3.99/item
E-mail alerts for exclusive deals and promotions
It’s free for students – sign up by providing your school and major
I’ve purchased a few things like a metal 1/4 to 1/8 audio converter and a gift for mother’s day. Free shipping is really a great bonus and it certainly does urge me to spend on Amazon. If you’re got a university or college email (anything ending in edu), check out Amazon Student! Free for a year and who doesn’t love free shipping?
