Discount Amazon Prime Membership $49

The regular Amazon Prime membership can certainly pay for itself over the course of a year with all of the free shipping offers and also all of the other offers that I’m sure a lot of people don’t realize they are getting.

An Amazon Prime account usually costs $99 per year, up $20 over the 2013 price.  But, there is a way you can get the account for just $49.  I’ll call it the student hack.

Amazon Prime Student accounts only cost $49 per year, and you technically don’t need to be a student to get it.

If you are currently attending a college, you should have an email addrss from your university that ends in .edu.  Also, lots of colleges let you keep your .edu email address after you graduate.

To get this discounted Amazon Prime rate, all you need to do is sign up with your .edu email address from the college that you attend now, or graduated from.

Amazon Prime Student benefits include:

  • Free two-day shipping
  • Free release date delivery of video games
  • Unlimited photo storage
  • 30 minute exclusive access to Lightning Deals and special discount events on
  • Free access to books on Kindle First
  • Ad-free listening to millions of songs on the Amazon music library
  • Streaming of movies and TV shows with Prime Instant Video

Another “hack” you can use to get free stuff with prime, is the not so urgent shipping option.  Sure, Prime is great for getting free 2 day shipping, but if you aren’t in a hurry you can get free shipping (delayed a bit) and get a $1 credit for purchasing books, ebooks, music, and streaming movies.  You can bank all of those credits and get completely free books and movies, technically.

Sidecar Promo Code – $15 Credit

I started being a Sidecar driver last year to earn some extra money when I would otherwise be sitting on my recliner just watching TV.  It is a great fun way to earn some extra money while helping people get around town.

With the Sidecar driving job, they give us coupon codes to share with new riders so that they can get a credit to start using the Sidecar rideshare app.  I do get $5 back for each one of you that signs up, but you also get $15 to use without any other obligation.

My Sidecar code is MIKE252

If you do choose to use this code, you will automatically be given $15 into your Sidecar account to use for your first ride.  Sorry to existing users, but this free credit is just for new sign ups only.

If you are in the Los Angeles area, maybe I’ll even be picking you up!

Roku Discount Codes 2013

The Roku XD that I bought two years ago could be one of the greatest purchases that I have ever made.  This little box is so convenient and has allowed me to join the movement of “cable cutters.”

For less than $100 you can get one of these boxes that sets up either wirelessly through WiFi or through an Ethernet cable.  You can then instantly set up your Netflix, Hulu Plus, Amazon Prime or other steaming programs.

25% Off refurbished Roku players

Features the same 90-day warranty as our new Roku players.

Fully tested and certified by Roku.

With a brand new Roku streaming media player you can get some of the great feature of streaming TV like Netflix so you can watch the great original series like House of Cards, Orange is the New Black, Hemlock Grove and the new episodes of Arrested Development.  Also Hulu Plus is airing original series along with current TV shows from some of your favorite networks a day after they go live on TV.

Free Amazon Prime Trial

I have had an Amazon Prime subscription for a little over a year now, and I couldn’t be happier with the service.  In the time that I signed up for Prime, they have added so much more to make it well worth the $79 investment.

Amazon Prime was originally made to give customers free shipping on any order made on Amazon (for products fulfilled by Amazon shipping).  Now there are other services included that make it definitely worth the purchase.

Free Shipping

Without Prime, you can get free shipping on most orders over $25.  But if you want a smaller item, you might find yourself often filling the shopping cart just to meet that $25 minimum.  A $3 purchase jumped up to $28 just to avoid spending $4.95.

Use Amazon Prime and your shipping is always free on Amazon shipped sales.  I use it all of the time to buy products that I don’t have the time to go to the store for, that I know are cheaper on Amazon than in the store anyway.

Prime Streaming Videos

Amazon has a paid rental service, and then they have Amazon Prime Streaming.  Prime streaming has been the secretly growing database of TV series and movies that are available free to Amazon Prime members.  They are quickly increasing the catalog of things to watch as well as adding new shows that only air on Amazon Prime.  Compared to Netflix and Hulu Plus, it is actually cheaper by a few dollars a month.  The only difference is you pay it up front instead of monthly.

Book Borrowing

If you own an Amazon Kindle, then you have the added benefit of getting to borrow certain books for free through Amazon.  This works kind of like a movie rental where they will give you a free download of a book to read for a certain amount of time.  Its like using a library without having to deal with dirty books.
