Some third party sellers use amazon to fulfill their orders, so they are included too...

So many colleges and universities in Ireland use gmail.

For example cit is first.second@mycit.ie or 012334543@mycit.ie

You could use both of these to sign up to Amazon prime free for 6 months deal and 1/2 price for 4 years.

Also gmail or any of these college mail systems has a cool trick that I use.

Basically you can create your own custom alias for each site.

first.second+facebook@mycit.ie
first.second+netflix@mycit.ie

etc

gmail will ignor the + and whatever is after it but still deliver it to you with that as the to address. Handy if you want to make custom rules.

Now you may ask why is this important. It basically means you can use a single student account to sign up as many people to amazon prime 6 months trial.

So someone here could say anyone want a code and give them their student email address

first.second+1@mycit.ie
first.second+2@mycit.ie
....

So all non students can avail of the offer. I am not going to do this as I am too lazy and have a job but you could probably make a bit of money off it if you wanted to.

Yeah it works the first time but we are on about using it more than once.

Is that what you are saying is working?

I would be very surprised if that works. Most sites would recognise it as the same email address even with the + part.

As I no longer have access to my @ucdconnect.ie account I used another gmail email address and went the route of sending a photo of my (expired) student account. Literally approved in under 5 minutes.
