For the longest time I could not afford to pay extra for shipping in order for my textbooks, or whatever else I had wanted. Shipping is FREE for two day shipping, for one day shipping it's $4.99 which isn't bad at all in my opinion. I have been using this for about 5 months, it's wonderful! They also have an app for students specifically for Amazon Prime students where you can find cheaper deals with. When I signed up no credit card was required.
You also have access to stream thousands of television shows, and movies for a month w/o a credit card needed, you can borrow one kindle book for a month for free, receive discounts, and offers you couldn't normally recieve otherwise. Seriously check it out I know you will love this as much as I do!
