Friday Freebies: free coffee, diabetes meter, bagels, and more!

I'm especially excited about this week's freebies because there are so many top-notch offers: free Amazon Prime memberships for students, free coffee at Borders for downloading a free app, a free diabetes meter, and a free bagel at Einstein Brothers. Lastly, we made a quick video of all my best thrift store tips that you can check it out below. Enjoy!

It pays to hit the books. Amazon is offering free Prime memberships, which cost $79 per year, to college students taking at least one class. The main benefit of Amazon Prime is free two-day shipping. I'm guessing this is a not-so-subtle way for Amazon to encourage students to order textbooks through them. There is no minimum order to get the free fast shipping and you can upgrade to one-day shipping for $4 an item. It looks like grad students are eligible too. To get this deal, you must have a valid .edu e-mail address, which they check by sending a message to the address. You will also need to share the state in which you attend school, your level of study, and your major. It's OK if your .edu e-mail is not the same as the one associated with your existing Amazon account (if you have one).
