Amazon For College Students

Back to School I just found a fantastic online deal from Amazon for everyone going back-to-school, a great deal from Amazon for college students. Get cheap text books, dorm supplies, furniture, music, and movies. Plus free 2-day shipping!!

I remember searching for deals when I went back to school each fall. Mostly because I had other things I’d rather spend my money on than a $200 textbook I was only going to use for a semester. (How do they get away with that??) And so I could go out to eat with my friends or hit up the cafe, I saved where I could. You’d be surprised how much money you can make by returning cans for deposits.

By my senior year, I was working three jobs (work study at the library, making sandwiches at the cafe, and selling newspaper ads for our college paper) and completing two senior seminars. I would have given anything to have the savvy deals of the Internet I find now. Krazy Coupon Lady, where were you then?? So while I can’t use this deal, I’m sure there are plenty of you college students out there that can. So let me know how it goes.

If you join, you get the following deals with Amazon for college students (those with *’s you get free for the first 6 months, if you stay you get deals on the following, it looks like.):

  • *Free Unlimited 2-Day Amazon Shipping
  • *$10 credit for every friend you refer

Holiday Shopping: How I Try To Shop For Others and Fail

Can we talk about, for a minute, how hard it is to shop for other people come Christmas time? Every time I go into a store, all I can find are things that I want. A nice bracelet, a scarf that I want that looks like every other one I own, and a gadget that I’d only buy if I won the lottery. Then I remember the real reason I came into the store, to shop for my friends and family.

Oh yeah….


That’s exactly how I stumbled upon Rue La La’s deal today – half off Alex and Ani bracelets! I’ve been watching these forever but haven’t had the heart to buy even one. Mostly it’s because to acquire that full bangled look, I’d have to shell out about $300, minimum. But half off?? Half off? That’s crazy!

Anyone need some last minute shopping gifts, head to Rue La La today. You only pay shipping once for 30 days and most items right now will make it to your house by Christmas if you order now.

Good luck!! I’m going to go back to trying to shop for other people and ignore the things that I want for myself….
