(Thanks, Coupon Pro!)

    • This is excellent news! I am a HUGE fan of Amazon Prime, and already paid the $79 fee a few months ago knowing I would get it back after the next few years of grad school. I was able to cancel my current membership today, receive a partial refund, and sign up as a student! Talk about saving money!!
      Thanks!!

      Thank you so much for posting this! No more looking around for items to make the $25 mark… yay!

      I think all you really need is a .edu address – my husband was able to sign up with his .edu email and he is a professor, not a student.

        I thought about that bc I am on staff at a college and have a .edu address. I went to sign up and it asks for college name, major and level. The terms and conditions also say that they may ask for further documentation and that if you are found to violate the “student” policy, you will have to pay back all the benefits your received.

        Sounded a little too risky to try for me!

      as of right now, if you are a student and have a school account that does not end in .edu (like me) then there is not a fix. i was on the phone with customer support and as of right now they cannot change it. hopefully they will find a fix SOON!!

    • I love this! I mean, I wish I had known about it before (I graduate next week), but I still order quite a bit and this is amazing!

      It said my son’s College of Charleston (myson@edisto.cofc.edu) email was not valid. Has anyone else had this problem? Thanks.

      Good news to those of you who do not have a .edu address but know someone who has registered with one: the person who registered for a free membership can send up to 4 invitations to other people for this free membership! You just have to verify the birthdate of the person who sent the invitation as well as your own. Just worked for me and thought I would share the word! :)

      Yeah! What a blessing! I am headed back to school and usually try to find my books cheaper online. Plus I just started Swagbucks and am hoping for some giftcards by Christmas. :-)
