Whoa....FREE TWO DAY SHIPPING FROM AMAZON?! FOR A YEAR?!

So apparently Amazon decided to be super nice to students this year (or it's just part of their grand scheme to topple Google and take over the world). If you haven't heard, Amazon is offering a free year of Amazon Prime (their usually $79/year service that gives you "free" 2-day shipping on most items) for students with a .edu email address. I signed up for it immediately and it works great!

You're probably thinking, "wait, what's the catch? Nothing is ever free!" Well, you're more or less right. Amazon says they'll be sending you some promotional emails and such. Unfortunately, you can't opt out of the emails, because by doing so, you'll be cancelling your free Amazon Prime. You might be able to get around it by adding their email to your spam folder, but be careful of sending ALL of Amazon's emails to the Spam folder (unless you don't care about confirmations and shipping notifications).

Also of note, I haven't confirmed this, but this offer probably extends to ANYONE with a .edu email address. Faculty, professors, employees of universities, let us know if it works for you too! And for you soon to be freshman, if you haven't been assigned a .edu email yet, hold tight! You'll probably get it by August, and with any luck, the promotion will still be in effect.

Happy shopping, with your FREE 2-day shipping all year! Thanks to our friends at Hackcollege for the tip!

    Make sure you combine foam with plenty of warm water (as long as needless to say the foam doesn't roll off), normally the dry foam serves as a "brake" for the razor and doesn't soften the hair practically as a lot as you would like.

I've had Prime for a while now and I've saved so much money. It's totally worth it. Though, if I already have Prime then what?

I would like to add that I don't use my .edu email for Amazon and I was still able to sign up entering my school email and where I go to school. It also refunded me half my money for the Prime that I already had. Thank you so much for showing me this. For how much I use Amazon, it's a great gift.

also to note, this also applies to staff and faculty with a .edu email address (my boss in my lab used it and it worked). So if you're REALLY hoping to get on your profs good side (hey, couldn't hurt for those letters of rec later on down the line), let them know!
