Amazon Prime: Free shipping!

Amazon is offering a special deal on the Amazon Prime membership for students and parents: free! Learn how you can register for this free offer just in time for holiday shopping.

Amazon Prime free for both students and parents

Shopping online -- whether for Cyber Monday or any ol' purchase -- is so much better than shopping in a store. Why? Well it fits into our busy lives and who doesn't like getting mail?

The only problem with online shopping? The shipping costs. Luckily, many online retailers regularly offer free shipping offers for purchases, especially during the holidays.

Free Amazon Prime membership

One mega-huge online retailer is stepping up the free shipping offer for cash-strapped students and parents. Amazon Prime is a membership-only service that gives members exclusive deals and free standard and two-day shipping for certain items. The membership is usually $25 per year, but Amazon is offering free membership for students and parents. The catch? Students must register with their .edu email address.

Serious savings

Just how much can an Amazon Prime membership save you? Besides the shipping costs, parents can save 15 to 30 percent on certain items, like diapers and baby wipes. These items really add up, so any savings is definitely a good thing.

Don't qualify for the student or parent Amazon Prime membership? You still have the option of signing up for a free trial, so you can use it for your holiday purchases and then cancel if you don't like it.
