Free $10 Credit & Kindle Sale

Free Student Amazon Prime

Amazon Student Free Credit

It’s rare to find an offer that is completely free, gives you a bonus for referring friends, and is worthwhile. It’s like a fabled Freebie Trifecta written about in the ancient scrolls and yet I’m sitting here with exactly such an offer. I don’t know whether to blog about it or hide it under my bed to keep all to myself.

Well, I guess we know which option I went with.

Remember when I raved about the wonders of Amazon Prime earlier this month? I mentioned that anybody with a .edu email address can get a free semester of Amazon Student, thus giving them a free semester of two-day shipping. Well, now through September 15, 2013, you can also get a free $10 credit for every friend you refer to Amazon Student.

Think about that for a second. You can get $10 for every friend who joins the free Amazon Student service. Nobody’s paying any money here! It’s win-win-win-win-win for all involved. I don’t care if I put too many wins back there. That’s how good a deal this is. You get free money, your friend gets free shipping, and Amazon gets…well I don’t know what the hell Amazon gets, but I’m sure they’re happy with things.

Amazon Mom Free Credit

But hey, the fun doesn’t stop there! Amazon Mom is another free service that comes bundled with Amazon Prime and, yep, you guessed it. For every friend you refer who also makes a $10 purchase, you’ll in turn get a free $10 credit.

Remember, these are basically trial memberships for Amazon Prime, so you’ll need to cancel if you don’t want to pay a dime after six months. Of course, since I’m such a nice guy, here are the steps to canceling both services!

So to sum up, both of these programs are free, both provide an awesome two-day shipping perk, and both can net you some extra cash.

Amazon Kindle Deals

And finally, Amazon has a limited time sale on Kindles for Amazon Students through September 1.

Okay. I think that’s everything. Enjoy!

    Where’s the link that gives ME credit if THEY join??? The link above only goes to the enrollment page with no mention of who referred them (so that I can get the $10 referral credit).

  • Bobbett, check out these images!

  • Did you just now sign up for Amazon Student? It might take up to 24 hours for the codes to become active on your account.

  • Jenny

    I told a friend about the free student account and she said when she signed up it wanted her credit card to charge her for the account. Amazon has my debit card already, so I didn’t know what to tell her. Is it required for an account and if so is it definite that it won’t charge her for the student account?

  • Jenny

    Also, I just went to Amazon and it said they couldn’t offer the referral credit to people in North Carolina.

  • Jenny, a credit card is required. However as long as she (or anybody) uses the methods I linked above to cancel, she shouldn’t be charged.

  • Bobbett Jascor

    What images? All I see is your one sentence post.

    Where’s the link so that *I* get the $10 Amazon credit if someone joins through MY referral??

  • Jenny


  • Ahhh, are you looking in the comments here on HIF? I posted two images with red arrows pointing to where you can get your link to get your money :)

  • Bobbett Jascor

    I can see them now. Don’t know why they didn’t appear before. I AM on the HIF page. Do *I* have to be a member of Prime or Amazon Mom for this offer?

  • Craig

    I need a .edu email for amazon student… dont have one

  • Romeight

    You actually don’t. I don’t have one and just emailed Amazon with a picture of my student ID and they approved it.
