Amazon has announced that their Amazon Prime service will be free for 1 year for college students. Stipulations:
1. You need a valid .edu email address (like @dc.edu) to participate. However, only one email will be sent to this email address — the validation email. If you normally use a different email with Amazon, it will use that one after you confirm that you are a student.
2. You will have to agree to receive emails for promotions and “exclusive deals”.
With Amazon Prime, you will receive:
1. Unlimited free 2-day shipping on textbooks and “millions of other items”
2. No minimum order size
3. The ability to upgrade to 1-day shipping for $3.99/item
