Amazon, in case you didn’t know, sells video games. True story. Bonus: Amazon will, more often than not, deliver your order directly to your home. Sometimes right to your front door, even. The problem there is that you’re usually getting charged for shipping and handling as well…usually.
Right now, Amazon has a promotion for college students. If you’re currently enrolled in college and have a valid .edu e-mail address, you can sign up for one solid year of Amazon Prime — for free. “What are the benefits of Amazon Prime?” I hear you ask. Well, let me lay it out for you:
- 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
It basically allows you to take advantage of Amazon’s great deals and get fast shipping for free or faster shipping for a nominal price. This is usually a $79 dollar value, and, even at that, it’s a good deal. Now that you can get one year for free, what have you got to lose?
Check out Amazon.com for all the details. But do it quick, I’m not sure how long they’re going to keep this going.
