Amazon's offering a rather sweet deal to students: A free year of Amazon Prime. That's a $80 value and gives you free two-day shipping among other perks.

All you need to do is head over to the Amazon Student page and sign up using an email address ending in .edu. That's it.

Of course, Amazon reserves the right to demand proof that you are still enrolled in a university course, so careful about signing up if you aren't. [Amazon via Slick Deals via TechCrunch]
