Here are a few promotions from Amazon that can save you some time and/or money.
Amazon and Discover Card have teamed up to offer free 1-day shipping on select products (mostly electronics) if you use the promo code DSCVRSHP and buy with a Discover card. Saw a few Roku boxes for streaming Netflix that I’ve been thinking about. Offer valid from February 15th, 2012 through March 31st, 2012 or while promotional funds last.
Amazon has started offering free 3-month trials to Amazon Mom again, which includes the free 2-day shipping feature of Amazon Prime and 20% off diapers and wipes subscriptions. You should be able to turn off auto-renew so it just ends when time is up. (If you have ever received shipping benefits through Amazon Mom, Amazon Student, or have had a paid or free trial Prime membership within the past 13 months, you are not eligible for the Amazon Mom free period. You’ll need to use a new or different account.)
If you’re a student with a .edu e-mail address, sign up for Amazon Student which offers six-months of Amazon Prime for free, and after that you’ll get 50% off Amazon Prime ($39 a year) for up to four years with automatic renewal.
