Free Amazon Prime for Students + $10 referral credit!

Not sure how many people are aware of Amazon Student
Free to join and you get the excellent benefit of Free Prime shipping for 6 months.

Best of all, amazon is now giving a $10 referral credit for the month of January.

And you don't actually need to be a student, you just need an email address that ends in .edu

Mine ends in .alumni.edu so could easily be caught, if anyone actually reads the applications...

I don't think you'll have any problems.

It didn't work. I got this message:
There was a problem with your email address which means you will need to provide additional verification that you are a student. Please contact customer service to complete sign-up.

Apparently if the email address contains the word "alumni" it gets flagged. Oh well...
