How to get Amazon Prime for free (again and again) and use it to get free mp3s

Update: with detailed instructions

You might know this already: free six-month Amazon Prime memberships if you are a student (or anyone with an active .edu email):

http://www.amazon.com/gp/student/signup/info

(Amazon Mom is currently closed)

What you might not know is that when the Amazon Prime six-month membership expires, you can register a new Amazon account and then use the same .edu email for another round of free Amazon Prime.

This applies to all the people who’ve had Amazon Prime thru their student accounts and are now being offered a 50% discount.

1. Login to your Amazon account using your .edu account
2. Click on Your Account
3. Click on Settings->Change Account Settings
4. Click on the Edit button besides the email address.
5. Change the email to some junk email
6. Register a new Amazon account with the .edu email
7. Go to http://www.amazon.com/gp/student/signup/info to activate Amazon Prime for Students, it will send you a link at the .edu address and prime will be activated once you click on the confirmation link.
8. All this = one more round of free Amazon membership. (source: slickdeals)

Also, this just started a few days ago, maybe Amazon noticed it’s paying a little too much in shipping? Anyway, free prime + free mp3, not bad.

“Amazon offers its Amazon Prime members a $1 MP3 credit for free when you choose Free No-Rush shipping instead of the normal 2-day shipping. Upon shipment Amazon will send you an e-mail confirming that the $1 credit has been applied to your account.”
