Default Free 1 year Amazon Prime subscription for college students

US only AFAIK, and you need an .edu email address.

http://www.amazon.com/student

Amazon Prime gives you free 2 day shipping on all Amazon stock with no minimum purchase limitations. It's normally $80/year.

Reasons why it’s worth to be a PC gamer in 2012.




- The hardest thing about getting a Mac is telling your parents that you're gay.

- If I had the choice between being gay and owning a Mac, I would rather be gay, because if I owned a Mac I would be both gay and own a horrible computer.

- Imagine a giant cock flying towards your mouth, and there's nothing you can do about it. And you're like "Oh man, I'm gonna have to suck this thing", and you brace yourself to suck this giant cock. But then, at the last moment, it changes trajectory and hits you in the eye. You think to yourself "Well, at least I got that out of the way", but then the giant cock rears back and stabs your eye again, and again, and again. Eventually, this giant cock is penetrating your gray matter, and you begin to lose control of your motor skills. That's when the giant cock slaps you across the cheek, causing you to fall out of your chair. Unable to move and at your most vulnerable, the giant cock finally lodges itself in your anus, where it rests comfortably for 4, maybe 5 hours. That's what using Mac OSX is like.

Yes. They will issue a pro-rated refund when you sign up for this.

Q: What happens if I already have a prime account?

A: I'm not sure, however people are reporting that if they currently have a prime account and they sign-up for the Amazon Student account, the following happens:

1. Their current prime account gets cancelled and they get a pro-rated refund
2. They get signed up for the free 1 year amazon student prime

Awesome of my school to change the .edu to a .net for our email addresses. When I had the prime trial it was great.

If you buy a lot from Amazon it's worth it to pay for Prime. I've had it for a few years now. It's crazy to think what I've saved in shipping costs.

not in school myself\, but have a couple emails I could borrow for it. But I don't really buy much from amazon. In fact, I hardly ever check their website.
It is a great idea though.

These days I am buying a lot from Amazon. I signed up for the 1 month trial for Prime and wanted to check as to how many gays on here are using it. I have already saved about 20 boners in shipping costs. Do you think it is worth it to get prime? Sad part is it does not work with international shipping (which is the bulk of my purchase).

So who says, I should keep the Prime membership? Also any student discounts that are still available? My wife has a US edu address that I would like to use for future purchases.

I have a Prime account. I think it's worth it. I use the Amazon Prime instant video through the PS3 a lot too. Lots of shows on there and movies.

That's the only problem with the free student version - you don't get the instant video. But that's honestly the only problem.

Prime is awesome. I've gotten 120+ lbs packages shipped with 2 day free shipping. Basically covers Prime for a whole year.

I was going to have my wife sign up but if you don't get the Prime instant movies then forget it.

It's free! And so very worth the shipping. Seriously, there are some really good deals you can get on there.

EDIT:
Plus you can upgrade later to the real Prime for $39 instead of $79.

You click this link http://www.amazon.com/b/ref=tb_surl_...node=668781011 then look to the top right where it says "Free two-day shipping for college students". Now see the little link right under those words that says learn more? Well click it and learn more.
