Sup everyone. Amazon is providing college students with a free 6 month membership to Amazon Student. Gives you FREE 2 day shipping and Free Release Day shipping. (You would get Starcraft 2 Heart of the Swarm on release day - for example):

Check it out: Click Here

Enjoy :D!

Correction. I guess you dont get access to Instant Video - which is pretty lame BUT the other perks are well worth the few steps it takes to sign up.

Also you'll occassionally get emails about special deals only for amazon prime student members. I got Risen for like $1.70 because they screwed up and gave me a 66% off coupon and Risen was $5.

You don't get access to free instant video. I've been a Student Prime member for probably 5 months now and i just checked it. As a student prime member you get the release date delivery and 2 day shipping only.

But seeing as we are talking about Amazon, I should say that I use an Amazon credit card and have received probably over $70 in Amazon points in less than a year. 3 points for every dollar spent on amazon (in other words, 3 cents for ever dollar), and 2 and 1 points for other stuff not on amazon. Its a really awesome setup for me because I can buy whatever i was going to buy anyways, but now i get money towards amazon purchases. For example, i just spent $360 on textbooks (And this was cheaper than any other place i could find). so that is $360/100= $3.60. $360 *3 = $10.80. So I not only got the cheapest prices on books, I also got $10.80 in amazon money.

That all relates to PC games because i can say that I haven't paid cash for a game in several months. The extra money that i get by using the credit card ends up being my video game fund that I use to purchase games.

It should be noted that after the free 6 months you can get Amazon prime for half price ($39) for 4 years, and that does include instant streaming and everything else

That's wonderful. I've been thinking about going back to school for my Master's Degree for a while now. Thanks for the great info. There's no age limit for student Prime member, right?

I don't think so. All they did was ask for my school email if I remember correctly.

Yeah, I'm pretty sure as long as you are a student you can do it (i honestly don't remember the sign up process :P ). I'm sure they have more info on the website. But just to make sure I didn't confuse you, realize that Student Amazon Prime (free 2 day shipping, free release day shipping) is totally different, and separate, from the Amazon credit card. Anyone can get the amazon credit card, whether you are a student or not, and it has nothing to do with Student Amazon Prime. I was simply mentioning it as an aside. You can get one or the other, or both (I happen to have both). I hope you do good with your Master's.

^ you just need a edu email account.

is it worth going back to college in another country across the other side of the world just to get this? I'm thinking yes!

No access to Video does suck BUT the other benefits are still worth the sign up. It really is a godsend when you need textbooks fast. lol.
