If you are like me, Amazon.com has become a vast resource for frugal and convenient shopping. Not only are you able to find almost any item at a lower price than other stores, often times you will be able to get the item shipped right to your door in days.
Amazon.com has come out with a service called Amazon Prime, which offers free express shipping on many items that are sold on the website. This is a huge deal as your are able to take advantage of the often offered low prices without having to pay shipping fees, which is very convenient on smaller items in which the shipping cost could be the same as the price of the item. Even better, they are offering this service for FREE to college students for a limited time, as noted in the link below. You can take advantage of this offer for the upcoming college semester, as books can often be found for a fraction of the price of the college bookstore. In addition, this offer is open to anyone with an .edu address, so if you are a teacher you are able to take advantage of the offer as well.
