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 Amazon.com 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 Amazon.com 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!
