Comments Off on Free Amazon Prime 2-Day Shipping for College Students

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. If you don’t want to be automatically upgraded, make sure you select the “do not upgrade” option during your free six months.

See all the terms, details, and benefits of the free Amazon Prime Student deal, which you can also use to order products other than books – perhaps all the kitchen stuff or electronics you’ll need to kit out your new student digs. As long as they item is eligible for Amazon Prime shipping, you’re good to go.

Existing Amazon Prime members (who are students) can still register for Amazon Student, and get a refund on the remainder of their subscription.

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…)

NOT A STUDENT AND WANT TO TRY FREE AMAZON PRIME?

Everyone else can still try Amazon Prime with a free one month trial. The free month trial includes 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 annual $79 subscription at the end of the trial period.

Comments Off on Page One Customer Appreciation Day: April 27

Page One Bookstore  is throwing a Customer Appreciation Day on Saturday April 27 with hot dogs, cake, and a book deal. I believe this coincides with the bookstore’s anniversary too… I reckon they’re 32 years old in Albuquerque this year!

As a writer and avid reader I’m especially keen to support our independent bookstores, and this is a very good time to be supporting Page One… especially when you can save money too. They’ve just won Best of Burque for the bookstore category.

The Page One Customer Appreciation Day  on Saturday April 27,  2013, promises free hot dogs and cake from 12 noon to 6 pm, while supplies last. According to an email, they’re also offering a deal on books all day: Buy 3 books and you get one free.

At 3 pm, during the celebration party, author Christine Barber will be reading from and signing copies of her new book: When the Devil Doesn’t Show. Barber is a former recipient of the Tony Hillerman Prize for a mystery novel.

You can also print out this Page One $5 Off Coupon to save $5 on any $30 or more purchase, whether new or used.  It’s valid till April 30, so take it along if you’re going to the birthday party! For ABQ on the Cheap readers with a smart phone or other internet enabled doohickey, you don’t even have to print this coupon. Just show it on your “web capable mobile device” to get the $5 discount.

That gives you plenty of excuses to go and be appreciated!

Looking ahead, I also notice that May 4 offers a sale on all Star Wars items for fans of the Star Wars movies. (And who isn’t?) On May 4, Page One will give a 20% discount on all Star Wars merchandise, including the cookbooks, Lego sets, the Thrawn trilogy, and whatever other Star Wars themed stuff they have in stock.

Three separate deals for students and all the rest of us!

Get a free $2 MP3 credit in a limited time deal on Amazon, when you answer a question and share on Facebook, through January 10. The question at the link is how you would spend any money you save on textbooks.

In a separate deal, college students joining the free Amazon Student membership program get Amazon Prime free 2-day shipping for six months and other student perks. Amazon Prime offers two-day shipping for speedy delivery, with no minimum order, if you need your text books (or any other purchases) in a hurry.  The service usually costs $79 a year. Plus, students joining  Amazon Student before January 30 are automatically entered to win $5,000 in the College Cash Sweepstakes.

Other student benefits include discounts and news on offers and promotions, and free release-date delivery on video games, DVDs, books and other items. To sign up for the free Amazon Student with Amazon Prime, you 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 offer does not include movie streaming, nor the Kindle Owners Lending Library to borrow books but students can choose to upgrade to a discounted $39 Amazon Prime membership, which does include access to Prime instant videos and Kindle Owners’ Lending Library.

At the end of the free six months, members are automatically switched to the discounted Amazon Prime membership costing $39 a year – which is still a saving on the regular $79 rate, with video streaming. If you don’t want to be automatically upgraded, make sure you select the “do not upgrade” option during your free six months.

Page One $5 Off Coupon and Free Events

Comments Off on Page One $5 Off Coupon and Free Events

Book Coupon Page OneAs a writer and avid reader I’m always keen to support Albuquerque’s locally-owned independent bookstores and their initiatives to encourage people to read more. Especially when we save money too!

Print out this Page One coupon to save $5 on any $30 purchase until November 30, 2012, whether it’s a new or used item.  It could come in handy if you’re shopping for yourself, or if you’re starting your holiday gift shopping.

For ABQ on the Cheap readers with a smart phone, iPad, or other internet enabled doohickey, you don’t even have to use the Page One printable coupon. Just show it on your “web capable mobile device” to the cashier to get the $5 discount.

Page One runs a Self-Published and Local Albuquerque Author Fair on the first Saturday of each month from 3 pm to 5 pm, with local authors selling their books, so that’s a good opportunity to turn up and learn more about some Albuquerque writers.

This Saturday November 10 at 3pm, local author Paul Christman discusses his novel The Purple Runner, originally published in 1983 and now in its second edition printing. Apparently it’s reputed to be one of the top 10 novels about running, but what would I know? The only thing I run for is the phone. Christman was the editor of Running Stats, and has written for Running Times, Marathon & Beyond, Athletics Weekly, and the Santa Fe Reporter. So if you’re into running and reading (not necessarily at the same time) it sounds like he’s your man.

Page One also holds the Adobe Walls Open Mic Night & Poetry Reading on the second Tuesday evening of each month, starting at 7 pm (sign up for the open mic from 6:45 pm). The event is (of course) free, and on Tuesday November 13, the 30-minute open mic hosted by Kenneth P. Gurney is followed by a reading by Jim Nye, a military man and the author of After Shock: Poems and Prose from the Vietnam War,  so it’s apt timing following Veterans Day.

Pioneer Woman Ree Drummond Free Event

Filed under Art & Entertainment, Books, Events

Comments Off on Pioneer Woman Ree Drummond Free Event

Ree Drummond of the Pioneer Woman blog pays a visit to Albuquerque on April 30, 2012, and if you want to see her, tickets are free!

Drummond writes the entertaining Pioneer Woman blog – there are lots of free recipes on there too. You can hear her talk about her new cookbook The Pioneer Woman Cooks: Food From My Frontier at 6 pm on Monday April 30, when Bookworks hosts Ree Drummond Pioneer Woman in a free event at the Simms Center for the Performing Arts Auditorium.

Although tickets are free, you have to get them in advance (because they’ve only got limited space). There are two options: Either reserve free tickets online with no charge if you choose the will-call option to pick them up at the door on the evening. Otherwise, you pay for ticket shipping, but I can’t see the point of doing that.

OR pop in to Bookworks to get your tickets (but not if you order them online. If you’re going to Bookworks, forget ordering them online, just go into the shop.)

Drummond’s children’s book Charlie the Ranch Dog and her memoir Black Heels to Tractor Wheels will also be available for purchase.

Albuquerque Academy is located at 6400 Wyoming Boulevard NE, at Wyoming and Academy. Find Bookworks at 4022 Rio Grande Boulevard NW, next to Flying Star Cafe.

Book Coupon Page OneA Page One bookstore coupon and a Bookworks gift with purchase make holiday shopping a little easier on the pocket!

As a writer and avid reader I’m always keen to support initiatives to help people read more. And I’m especially keen to support our local owned independent bookstores…. especially when we save money too.

Print out this Page One coupon to save $5 on any $30 purchase until December 31, 2011.  It could come in handy if you’re shopping for yourself, or if you’re looking for holiday gifts, and it’s valid on both new and used purchases.

For Albuquerque on the Cheap readers with a smart phone or other internet enabled doohickey, you don’t even have to use the Page One printable coupon. Just show it on your “web capable mobile device” to the cashier to get the $5 discount.

Over at Bookworks, they’re giving a free gift with purchases this holiday season. Spend $50-75 and receive a free copy of Christmas in New Mexico to keep or give. When you spend $75-100, the freebie is the Book Lover’s 2012 Desk Calendar. Shop for more than $125, and they’ll give you both gifts! Bookworks also offer free gift-wrapping on request.

I think I’ve had that Book Lover’s calendar before, or one very like it. I really enjoyed that calendar, and I need to add it to my Christmas wish list.  If I don’t plan in advance, I end up buying a calendar…. oooh, about February, when the only choices left are the ones nobody else wants (and usually for a reason).

Page One Bookstore is located at 11018 Montgomery NE.
