Who doesn’t love free opportunities to try things out? Especially ones that you can give to yourself.
When I was in college, free was good since most things seemed to cost an arm and a leg. Textbooks, meal plans, housing, and tuition costs quickly added up then, as they do even more so today.
That is why when I see an offer that I believe is well worth college students taking advantage of, I am not shy about mentioning it. Amazon.com is currently offering college students the opportunity to try out a Prime Student membership free for six months.
