Free ShopRunner Account for Amazon Prime Members

Free Two-Day shipping

So this is more of a poaching attempt than anything, but ShopRunner is giving Amazon Prime members a free 1 year unlimited account, so poach away! This free ShopRunner account is a $79 value and will give you free 2-day shipping on dozens of sites.

The steps involved to get this offer are:

  1. Go to www.amazon.com/gp/primecentral
  2. Log in if necessary
  3. Click on “View printable receipt”
  4. Copy the full receipt.
  5. Open a new email addressed to DoneWithPrime@ShopRunner.com
  6. Paste the receipt into the body of the email and hit send. (Make sure to send it from your ShopRunner registered email address.

And that should do it! I should note this is for new members to ShopRunner, but, ah… yeah.

[thanks to Hiffer Jean for sending this in!]

Amazon Prime Price Increase

Free Amazon Prime Membership

What more can be said about Prime at this point? They offer a free 6 month Amazon Prime trial for students, or anybody with a .edu email, which lets you take advantage of the free 2-day shipping perk. Amazon Mom is another great (and free!) service for any parents out there who also want the free shipping (it’s capped at 3 free months though). And then there’s the full fledged Amazon Prime, which I happily pay $70 a year for. You get free 2-day shipping on anything sold by Amazon, you get to stream movies, and you can rent books on your Kindle app. It’s amazing.

The only problem is that Amazon Prime price increase is real. Next month it goes from $70 to $90 a year.

So this is just a friendly reminder that if you were thinking about trying Prime out, you might want to do it sooner rather than later. The cost change applies to users when they renew their membership after April 17. New customers who start a free trial between now and March 20 will lock in the $79 rate for the first year!

So there ya go. If you want an Amazon Prime account, you might want to get on that now. And if you don’t want to pay, there’s always Amazon Student or Amazon Mom if you qualify!

Deal: $5 Amazon Credit with Purchase

Free $10 Amazon.com Store Credit

If you’re anything like me, you wait until December 23 to buy Christmas presents before panicking and scooping up a bunch of Amazon giftcards. Works like a charm. But with a little foresight this year, we can all score a free $5 Amazon giftcard for ourselves!

Now through October 31, new Amazon Mom members or those who pay for Amazon Prime will get a free $5 credit when they purchase at least $45 in giftcards. They come in packs, so what you’re really buying is 3 $15 giftcards, which actually helps in spreading the gifts out.

Remember, Amazon Mom is free to join and you get three months of free 2-day Amazon Prime shipping when you first sign up as well.

Super Cheap Papa John’s Pizza

Papa John's Pizza Offer

This isn’t quite a freebie, but I know there’s a pizza somewhere in my near future (there always is) and it might as well come from Papa John’s since they’re offering 50% off any large pizza this month with code TRAC50.

Not only that, but this weekend only code TOUCHDOWN will earn you a free large pizza with up to three toppings after you make a purchase of $15+. For this offer, you’ll get 25 Papa Rewards points added to your account, so make sure you sign up for a free membership.

You can even stack these codes together, thus netting you a few cheap pizzas for dinner or football plus you’ll have the 25 points for a free pizza later on!

Free Amazon Prime Membership for College Students

Free Amazon Prime Membership

I don’t subscribe to many membership clubs. Amazon Prime is the rare exception. I pay every year and actually enjoy doing so. That’s how much I love Prime! But did you know that college students or anybody with an .edu email gets free Amazon Prime 2-day shipping perks?! (as Hiffer Ryan pointed out, .edu accounts don’t get access to the free streaming options.)

The main draw of Prime is the free two-day shipping on millions of products from Amazon (laughing at the oversized boxes is a nice bonus!) But the shipping perk is quickly taking a backseat to the ever increasing trove of free streaming TV show, movies, and Kindle book rentals.

Free Student Amazon Prime

So how do you sign up? Easy.

  1. Click this free Amazon Prime membership link.
  2. Sign up.

See? Told you it was easy.

Finally, if you’re not a student but still on the fence, Amazon is running a promotion where new members get a $10 Amazon gift card. That cuts the overall price down to $69 basically.

Deal: Free Redbox Instant Trial plus 4 Free Rentals

I don’t normally post these type of membership deals, but a million and one Hiffers wrote in to let me know we can all get a free 1 month trial of Redbox Instant. What is that? It’s basically like other video streaming sites. For $7.99/month, you get unlimited streaming online plus 4 free kiosk rentals.

So today you could sign up, enjoy the service, and then either cancel within 28 days and not pay a dime for the month’s service you enjoyed or keep it and be charged $7.99 every month from here until you cancel. You can obviously do whichever is best for you, I have no idea, but just be warned it’s a cost if you don’t cancel within the first month.

The More You Know

Deal: Free Mother’s Day Photo Book

Free Mother’s Day Photo Book

If you’re a new customer to MyPublisher, then you can get a free photo book for Mother’s Day! All you have to do is sign up by tomorrow, May 1, and you’ll receive a custom code good for a free 20-page photo finish pocketbook or $19.99 off a Classic or Deluxe photo book.

Note you’ll have to pay for shipping, but Mom’s worth it, right? Also you only need to sign up by tomorrow. The code itself should be good for another week.

Hi Mom!

Deal: 40% Off Tiny Prints Thank You Cards

Tiny Prints Coupon

EDIT: This is no longer available.

I remember my best friend had no earthly idea that sending thank you cards for the graduation gifts he received was not just polite, but pretty much required. So this post is for anybody who also didn’t realize this practice existed but without all the mocking and teasing my best friend received. Now through noon EST tomorrow morning, you can use code DEAL0404 to get 40% off Tiny Prints Thank You cards. So pick a design, order them up, and impress your extended family.

Deal: Free Arby’s Fries and Drink

Free Arby's Fries and Drink

This deal for a free Arby’s fries and drink isn’t quite 100% free because you have to purchase a New York style reuben sandwich in order to get them. But a free lunch for the cost of a sandwich isn’t half bad. Well unless your Arby’s charges $250 for a reuben sandwich. Then it’s a freaking ripoff.

Free 1-Day Amazon Shipping

Free Amazon Shipping

How does free 1-day Amazon shipping on select items sound? I hope it sounds like “free 1-day Amazon shipping on select items” and not “flippity flark BZZZZZZZZ” because then you clearly have something wrong with your hearing. I’d get that looked at.

There are some decent items available as part of this promotion. Hopefully this helps if you’re still looking for a Christmas gift.
