Everybody Love Amazon – Secrets Of The Amazon
Amazon is, without a doubt, one of the best and most popular places to shop online. It’s got there due to awesome features like Amazon Prime, Super Saver Shipping, the Kindle reader app for the web, desktop and mobile, and great mp3 prices. But there is a lot more to Amazon than just that.
Below are some Amazon “diamonds in the rough” that you probably don’t know a lot about or may have not even heard of. And even if you have, this can be a nice reminder to check them out again.
If you are currently a student in college, you will appreciate Amazon Student. It is an awesome opportunity for students to get some great deals.
The basic benefits of Amazon student are in the image above:
- Amazon Prime free for six months (used to be 1 year)
- Free two-day shipping
- Free release-date deliver on video games, DVDs and books
- Student-specific deals and promotions
You get a lot more with the free 6-month Prime membership as well. For example, each month you’re able to borrow a Kindle book for free. You’re also eligible for the Kindle book lending program. You can read about all the details on the Prime Student’s Learn More page. There’s also a referral program.
So what happens after your 6-month trial is up?
You can continue to get the same awesome benefits for 50% off the original cost of Amazon Prime. So instead of paying $79/year, you only pay $39/year – not a bad deal! Note that to prove you are a student; you must have a valid .EDU email address.
Amazon Mom is a similar program for parents – that’s right, not just moms, but anyone caring for a child. However, it’s not as good of a deal as the Amazon Students membership.
During the free 3-month trial period, you don’t get unlimited instant streaming nor are you eligible to borrow a Kindle book each month for free.
However, if you upgrade and pay the $79/year you, of course, are able to get those benefits as well as many others such as continuing the 20% off diapers. Free two-day shipping, unlimited instant streaming and Kindle book borrowing are also included.
Again, don’t be fooled by the name. Amazon explains that you can be a mom, dad, grandparent or caretaker. “[They] just thought ‘Amazon Primary Caretaker’ didn’t have the same ring to it.” However, I must say that perhaps they could have chosen it to be “Amazon Parent” instead – but that’s just my take on things.
Amazon Deals is accessible from the main page, but it might not be your first choice to look at. By clicking “Today’s Deals” you can see what deals are being offered. There is one item which is the “Deal of the Day” and then there are others which are only available at a certain price for a short amount of time, then Amazon moves on to the next. Also, you have no idea what the next one is, so it keeps you coming back to check it.
Amazon Baby Registry
With Amazon’s Baby Registry, you can add items from Earth’s biggest selection, and get free 90-day returns on most items, and manage your registry on any device whenever—and wherever—you want.
With Amazon, you have access to almost all of the brands and products you love in one convenient place. Plus, you can get discounts, free samples, and easy returns and free two-day shipping.

A great place to shop
Amazon certainly isn’t the only place to shop online, but it is a great place to start – especially when searching for reviews. And overall, the prices are quite competitive.
