Amazon Offering Students a Year of Free Shipping

Amazon this week launched Amazon Students, which offers anyone with a .edu email address a year of Amazon Prime for free. Launched in 2005, Amazon Prime offers free two-day shipping on all items and discounted priority-shipping rates for a flat fee of $79 per year.

To qualify for the Amazon Students program you'll need the aforementioned .edu email address, and you must be in enrolled in at least one university class. Despite Amazon Prime being launched in several other countries since its U.S. debut five years back, Amazon Students is only open to customers in the United States.
