Amazon Prime is Now Free for Students

That's a $79 value for free as long as you've got an email address that ends in .edu.

Maybe you've noticed, but here at High-Def Digest, we're big fans of Amazon. It's one of the best places to get Blu-rays and hardware, and Amazon Prime makes it even better. The downside to Prime is that it's $79 a year, which means you've got to buy a lot to make up the difference.

If you're a student though, Amazon's hooking you up with Amazon Prime for absolutely nothing. Just jump on over to the Amazon Student signup page, enter your info, and you're done.

Once you're signed up, you'll get free two-day shipping, cheap upgrades to overnight shipping and a few other nice perks – all for free. That's less money you have to spend on shipping out Blu-ray discs and more money to spend on other things you need.
