Sign up for your free Amazon Prime membership, an offer exclusively available to students.
You know the drill… with Amazon Prime, you get access to most of the streaming video that you might get through Netflix plus FREE 2-day shipping and all sorts of other perks. Typically, Amazon Prime is near $100 bucks a year, but if you’re a student, you qualify for 6 months FREE.

And not only that, Amazon will give you $5 in free credit to spend for every student you refer (plus your friend will also get a free Prime membership and $5 bucks – everyone wins!). The only drawback is that it sounds like you won’t get free streaming – just shipping deals… unless you pay for the membership at the end of the 6 months, which you’ll get for a whopping 50% off. If you don’t want to pay, just make sure you cancel your free Amazon Prime membership in that initial 6-month window.
If you don’t have a student email address, chances are you can’t fake it and sign up for 6 months for free Prime shipping, but never fear… the 30 days free deal might be even better for you because you can use the free movie and tv show streaming with your 30 days free trial, whereas you can’t in the first 6 months of a student membership. You’ll also get free access to the Washington Post and free delivery of from restaurants if Amazon restaurants have been activated in your area.
Also, did you know that Amazon uses dynamic pricing? What does this mean? Well, it means that Amazon changes the price on just about everything constantly – even small stuff. To get the best deal, track the stuff you want to buy and buy it at it’s most rock bottom price!
