College students can get a FREE year of Amazon Prime by providing their school, year and major. This is a $79 value, and it gives you FREE 2-day shipping when you order at Amazon, with no minimum order. This is a great way to catch those price drops that pop up without having to meet the $25 minimum.
Only students currently enrolled in a college or university who have a valid .edu e-mail address to confirm their status are eligible to participate in Amazon Student. See additional conditions at Amazon Student Terms & Conditions for more details.
With the regular Amazon Primeaccount, you can invite other members of your family who live in the same household to receive FREE 2-day shipping as well. This Student account says the offer will be good for only 30 days of FREE shipping, but that's a great deal for Mom & Dad!
