    THIS LINK IS A REFERRAL LINK:
    Here!

    If you are signing up for Amazon Prime student, I'd appreciate it if you used the referral link. I get five bucks. There are no extra hoops to jump through, you lose nothing.

    Otherwise you can use this link, non-referral:
    Here!

    The beauty of it is that after the six-month trial, you get a 50% discount on Amazon Prime. Amazon Prime is normally $79 a year, with Amazon Student and the eventual upgrade to Amazon Prime you get it at the price of $37 a year!

    If you do sign up for student first, then DO NOT UPGRADE TO PRIME NOW. Wait six months, and then upgrade. Unless you are dying to have Prime a bit earlier.

    I'm sure a lot of people know about this, but just in case all you Clutchfans that are about to enter college like me are unaware.

    I'm also considering upgrading to Prime after six months. The benefits along with the Amazon Video Streaming? Holy crap that's basically like a cheaper Netflix along with the shipping benefits.

    True, I forgot about canceling after the 6 months, but to be honest it's worth its value and I'm happy to continue the service yearly.

    If you can't afford the $39 a month, just remember to cancel it after 6 months through Amazon

    30 is old?

    Also I did not know about this, thanks! I love all the discounts college students get. $19 for Microsoft office? $150 for AutoCad 2014? Uh yes please.

    If you have prime, you get a free amazon instant video account. Basically Netflix. If you are a student, it is cheaper to get prime than a Netflix account.

    I've had prime for like 3 or 4 years. Love it. even at $79 I renew it (hope to get my student discount again with my masters degree :) )

    It's $39 per year with Student and $79 per year without. Great deal either way, especially if you use Mom and S&S.

    How's the video selection though? I already have four months of Netflix thanks to Chromecast.
    I like Netflix, but a lot of its titles are absent from instant streaming.

    That's all I needed to know. Will cancel Netflix after four months and switch to Amazon Prime. :)

    A lot of the same content as far as movies. You wont get the tv series exclusives. Also you get the option to buy new movies and stream them unlike netflix.

    FYI, if you're not a student, you can get Prime for ~$15 if you can find three other people willing to sign up with you as "family members" and split up the cost four-ways. Only catch is that the primary account only gets Instant Video.

    I used to do this before using my student email and it worked out well enough.

    Bump... I just discovered this today, so I'm betting that there's others here who didn't know.
