If you need your text books or anything else in a hurry, the Amazon Prime service includes free two-day shipping for speedy delivery, with no minimum order. The service usually costs $79 a year, but college students joining this free Amazon Student membership program get free Amazon Prime for six monthsStudents signing up for the program by October 15, 2013, are also entered into a drawing to win $30,000 in cash.

Other Amazon Student membership benefits include student discounts and news on offers, giveaways, and promotions especially for students. It’s free to sign up for Amazon Student with free Amazon Prime, you just need to verify that you’re a current student at a college or university by providing a .edu email address. Once that .edu address is verified, use any email you choose to manage your Amazon account.

The free Amazon Prime offer does not include movie streaming, nor the Kindle Owners Lending Library to borrow books. At the end of the free six months, members are switched to a discounted Amazon Prime membership costing $39 a year – which is still a saving on the regular $79 rate, and this does include video streaming and the Kindle library.

I’d always encourage you to support your local independent bookstore such as Bookworks and Page One, or, of course, the University of New Mexico Bookstore if you study at UNM.  But if you buy online anyway, this is a great way to save on shipping costs, especially if you need your books in a rush because you’ve left your studying till the last minute (Tsk tsk! Yeah, I know, we’ve all done it…)

Free $2 Amazon Credit for MP3

June 13, 2012 by  
Filed under Freebies, Music, Shopping

Comments Off on Free $2 Amazon Credit for MP3

Ooh, I just found this deal to get a $2 free MP3 credit on Amazon through Sunday June 23, 2012.  Although the offer is pretty tucked away on the Amazon site, their Twitter feed gave the link to the deal, so it IS worth me wasting spending time on social media, after all.  I’ve spent my free credit already :-)

To get the Free $2 Amazon MP3 Credit, visit the offer page before buying anything, hit the “enter the code” button, and enter the promo code: MP3S4ALL

The $2 credit will be automatically applied to your account, and then you must redeem the credit by spending it on one or more MP3s by Sunday June 23, 2012 at 11:59 pm Pacific Time. $2 gets you a couple of MP3 singles (usually 99 cents or even 69 cents each) or use the credit toward the purchase of an album.

You should see a confirmation on screen after entering the promo code MP3S4ALL that the credit is in your account but, if in doubt, look at any MP3 product detail page and click the Redeem Your Amazon.com Gift Card or Promotional Code and View Balance button on the top right, and it should show that you have $2 to spend – all for free!

I’ve just used the free MP3 credit promo to get myself a couple of Snow Patrol tracks that I love, and it’s no strings attached as far as I see, beyond being limited to one free credit per customer. Of course, you do need to have an Amazon account, and just make sure you use the free credit by June 23 or you lose it!

Update note: When I first posted this deal, the offer ran until June 15. Since then they’ve extended the Amazon freebie to June 23, and this post has been updated to reflect the new date. Good news all around!

If you want more free music, check out my previous post on free MP3s to download.

Black Friday Deals 2011

Comments Off on Black Friday Deals 2011

Black Friday 2011 is right around the corner. Or as I’m starting to call it: The Day of the Dread. I find Black Friday rather overwhelming but HEY! It’s a great day to save money!

Black Friday is traditionally the biggest shopping day of the year, when many people start their Christmas shopping.  Others (not naming any names) start their Christmas shopping on Christmas Eve. But it’s smart to shop early, as on Black Friday ( November 25, 2011 ) you can expect deals you won’t find any other time of the year. A little work may however be required, especially as some of the stores open at ridiculous times and you might need to camp out to save dollars 😉  And some stores aren’t even waiting till Friday, they’re starting on Thanksgiving Day or even today.

Many official Black Friday ads have been released in advance, so we don’t have to wait till Thanksgiving morning to find the Doorbuster deals for electronics and computers, apparel, appliances and household goods, and a whole lot more:

Some of these Black Friday ads are via the site Black-Friday.net which is a great resource on all shopping deals on Black Friday, to find the ads for your fave store and deal listings in exhaustive detail.

Also don’t forget about Small Business Saturday on November 26, and the deal for American Express card holders to get a free $25 Amex credit on their statement when shopping at small businesses on Saturday. You need to register your card in advance, deets at the link.

Among smaller businesses, Albuquerque Black Friday or Small Business Saturday deals include:

Alamosa Books is offering 25% off “almost everything” – most books, toys and stationery – from November 25 – 27 at 8810 Holly Avenue NE.

The first 300 customers at Thrift Town on November 25 receive a $5 off $15 coupon, according to an email received from Thrift Town. They open at 8 am on Friday.

Routes Rentals & Tours deals on November 25 and 26 include 50% off boutique gifts and stocking stuffers, 15% off certificates for bicycle or snowshoes rentals, 20% off bike and snow tour certificates, plus discounts on bike and bike accessories.

Black Friday Albuquerque Botox and Juvederm deals at the ABQ Health Partners Plastic Surgery Center

If you know of an Albuquerque Black Friday deal with a local retailer, please let us know in the comment box below!

–Tania FYI – I’ve given my Amazon, Sears, and Sam’s Club affiliate links on those specific deals. To help support ABQ on the Cheap (it doesn’t cost you anything), please use the links. Thanks!

Amazon Prime Free Kindle Library

Comments Off on Amazon Prime Free Kindle Library

Free Kindle book loans for Amazon Prime members, free book downloads even if you don’t own a Kindle, & free Amazon Prime memberships…

Amazon just announced that Amazon Prime subscribers can use the new Kindle Owners Lending Library
to borrow books for free. Amazon Prime costs $79 a year and includes unlimited free two day shipping and streaming of movies and TV shows. (They’re clearly trying to give Netflix a run for their money, and I’m still considering whether to switch all my viewing to Amazon Prime after the recent Netflix price increase.)

If you’re a Kindle owner with Amazon Prime you can start borrowing from a selection of thousands of books including many bestsellers, up to one book a month with no due return date. If you don’t have Amazon Prime you can get a free one month trial, with unlimited instant video streaming of movies and TV shows. Be sure to cancel your subscription before the free trial ends or select “do not upgrade” once you’re registered for the freebie, if you don’t want your credit card to be automatically charged for the $79 subscription at the end of the trial period.

Don’t have a Kindle?

Even if you don’t own a Kindle, you can read many of the free Kindle books, downloaded to a PC or other mobile device, using Amazon’s free app at the links:

Kindle Popular Book Classics that can also be downloaded to your computer or other mobile device, include Dracula, The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes, Pride and Prejudice, Fairy Tales Every Child Should Know, Little Women, Treasure Island, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, The Autobiography of Benjamin Franklin, and many more.

Kindle Store Limited Time Offers with freebies also available on PC include:

There are many more in the list but these free offers can change quickly, so may vary.

Free Amazon Prime: College Students and Child Carers

College students signing up for the free Amazon Student membership program also get Amazon Prime free for one year with free two-day shipping and no minimum order, plus student discounts.  The free offer does not include movie streaming, nor the Kindle library.

Similarly, the free Amazon Mom program is not just for moms – anyone caring for a baby or child can join – and benefits include free two-day shipping for three months, not just on child products but across all categories, 20% off diapers, and if you shop in the Baby Store, for every $25 you spend they’ll add another month of free two-day shipping to your account, up to a year’s worth. There’s no restriction on the child’s age and the program is open to moms-to-be, dads, grandparents, aunts, or anyone caring for a child. The Amazon Mom Frequently Asked Questions gives the full skinny, and again the free offer doesn’t include movie streaming.

Free ABQ Library eBooks, Video, Audio Book Downloads

Albuquerque and Bernalillo County libraries let you borrow ebooks, audio books, and videos online and download them at home, from the Albuquerque and Bernalillo County Libraries Digital Media website.

You need a library card to download up to four titles at a time, and “borrow” them for ten days. Once the lending time is up, titles automatically return to the library. If the title you want is borrowed already, you can place a hold on it – up to five titles at a time.

As far as I can fathom, the free downloads work on Windows PCs and Mac computers, iPhone, iPad, Android, Blackberry, and other devices, according to the type of digital media you’re borrowing. For example, ebooks are in Adobe PDFs, and audio books come in MP3 and other formats.  For some loans it may be necessary to download free software, provided at the library site.

Hope you find something entertaining in there to enjoy!

You don’t need to cancel the Amazon Student and Amazon Mom deals (although Amazon Student members get the option to renew at nearly half price: $39). Once you’ve used up your free shipping time, the Amazon Prime membership just stops – although other discounts and benefits continue. It’s a totally free deal.

Comments Off on Amazon Free Two-Day Shipping for Parents

The free Amazon Mom membership program is not just for moms – anyone caring for a baby or child can join – and benefits include free 2-day Amazon Prime shipping, 30% off diapers, and other discounts.

By registering for the free Amazon Mom program, you get free two-day shipping for three months at Amazon with no minimum order required – and not just on child products but on millions of products in all categories.  If you shop in the Baby Store, for every $25 you spend they’ll add another month of free two-day shipping to your account, up to a year’s worth.

Other benefits include 30% off diapers and wipes, and although it’s not required to share information about your child or children, they offer member discounts and promotions if you choose to provide details such as gender and birthday, or your due date if you’re pregnant (congratulations!).

The free membership is open to anyone caring for children – moms, dads, grandparents, aunts, etc – with no restrictions on the child’s age, and the free shipping is valid on products other than child care. Existing Amazon Prime members can also get a refund on their paid subscription (usually $79 a year) if they trade it in for the freebie! See all the Amazon Mom Frequently Asked Questions for the full skinny.

We’d always encourage you to support local Albuquerque stores, but if you buy online anyway, this is a great way to save on shipping costs AND get other perks!

* * *

Everyone else can still try Amazon Prime with a free one month trial. Be sure to cancel your subscription before the free trial ends or select “do not upgrade” once you’re registered for the freebie, if you don’t want your credit card to be automatically charged for the $79 annual subscription at the end of the trial period.

You don’t need to cancel the Amazon Mom deal – once you’ve used up your free shipping time, the Amazon Prime membership just stops – although the other discounts and benefits continue. It’s a totally free deal.

We got a great tip from Evelyn at The Big Apple on the Cheap to save time, packing, and shopping when you’re traveling:  Have Amazon deliver a box of diapers to the hotel where you’re staying on vacation, or to a family member’s house on your next visit!
