Students with a valid .edu e-email address can sign up for the Amazon Student program. This means a 6-month free trial of Amazon Prime, and only $39 per year for Prime after that. If you're not a student and you want a free .edu e-mail address for some unrelated reason, Digital Bridge has a list of sites that give them out for free. (Wink.)
You can often use more than one coupon at a time.
The homepage offers random, monthly promotions like Mrs. Field's treats when you buy certain items.
Sign up for Staples Rewards to get 5% back in rewards and free shipping on all orders. If you spend more than $1000 annually you’ll qualify for the Premier program which will get you perks like double the time to redeem points and copy deals & print discounts.
Be sure to order from Checks In The Mail well in advance of running out of checks. Regular mail orders can take up to 22 days to arrive and 2 day or overnight shipping can add $15-$25 to the cost of your order.
