Hmmmm...I'm a professor. I do have a .edu e-mail address. It would be nice if folks on the other side of the big desk could get in on this too! (I've been a paying Prime member for almost four years).

Did you contact them or did they just email you? And how long did this take? I signed up for the student promo a couple of days ago, already have Prime but didn't receive any refund.

Of course my community college email was brought down for the summer while they migrate and I can't get to it to retrieve the email.

Re: 1 Year FREE Amazon Prime... for College Student Only!

When you sign up for Amazon Student, you'll receive e-mail alerts for discounts and promotions. If you don't want any more Amazon Student e-mails, you may cancel your Amazon Student membership. If you do this, your Amazon Prime benefits will also end when the membership is canceled.
I was tempted, since I'm in grad school for a second masters right now, but this is a little red flag for me. Seems like a great way for Amazon and its partners to get my email address and send me whatever they want. I'm currently a Prime member and don't have to deal with any of that, so maybe the $79 trade-off for no spam is worth it.

Thoughts on that?

^ I would say you're worrying too much. But then again I might sell my own contact info for $80.

Nice. I'm a college employee (and I do take classes, especially since they only cost $0 to $5, so I'm even legit) and got $66 back from my existing membership.

I get so much spam anyway it's not like a bit more is gonna hurt.

In the sign-up process, they specifically say that if your .edu address differs from your normal Amazon e-mail address, that they will only use the .edu address you give them to do the eligibility confirmation, and then nothing else after that.

Re: 1 Year FREE Amazon Prime... for College Student Only!

Well unfortunately I had to cancel my Prime membership already. My first shipments this week went via another shady courier who marked them as delivered even though they weren't. See my post in the Prime thread under the Store Forum for details. I'm not going to deal with that crap again.
