What is Amazon Student? {Referral Link}

Have you heard about Amazon Student? It's a program in which college students can receive six months of FREE Two-Day Shipping on eligible purchases with Amazon.  

Think about it. Time is money, so if you can save time by getting free 2-day delivery and not have to drive around to a bunch of stores, that can be invaluable. To make it even better, try to find American made products on Amazon.  That way, you can still supports U.S. companies and make life a little easier for yourself at the same time.

In addition to the free shiping, students will also receive special discounts and promotions.

  1. Join Amazon Student FREE Two-Day Shipping for College Students
  2. Students need to be currently enrolled in a college/university and have a valid .edu e-mail address.
  3. Submit the sign-up form.
  4. Click the verification link in the e-mail they send to complete the sign-up process.

Be sure to share this with anyone you know who is currently in college.  I'm sure they'll appreciate it!
