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

http://www.amazon.com/gp/student/signup/info

To sign up for and use Amazon Student, you must (1) have an Amazon.com account, (2) be a college student actively enrolled in at least one course at a college geographically located in one of the 50 United States or the District of Columbia, (3) be able to provide proof of enrollment upon request and (4) have a valid e-mail address that contains the domain suffix .edu.

No auto-renew either. Unfortunately, I graduated from college back in 08 so I cant take advantage of this but if you still are able to "share" Amazon Prime with a "family member", I would really appreciate someone hooking me up with this!

I don't think you are able to share this like the standard Amazon Prime membership. The Prime here is just a benefit of the overall Amazon Student program.

I was reading through the pages over at SlickDeals and a few of them posted that it was able to be shared?

Signed up for this and they sent me a prorated refund for the year I already had in progress. NICE!

and the people I was already sharing my Prime with are still on my account.

Haven't we already decided that this is against their terms of service and is therefore unethical and not allowed to be posted here? Or am I wrong about that?

Well, if its not allowed, please let me know and I'll delete my post. (although I doubt anyone will actually send me an invite)

Just a thought, if the program is for "friends and family"...aren't we all friends?

Same here on both. I work at a college so I have an extra .edu email, so signed up no problem.

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

True, but it also means I don't have any money to actually buy anything off Amazon.

What's the big advantage of "Prime"? Just getting faster shipping?

That, but mainly you get free shipping for any size order.

Actually, it's not. My membership page says I can invite up to 4 household members It then asks for the relationship between us and friends is not an option.
