Edu stands for free trials
If you’re unfamiliar with Amazon Prime, it’s a service that offers free delivery for select purchases. With a Prime account, you’re eligible to receive discounts on all sorts of products and streaming services. Normally, you’d have to fork over more than $100 to sign up but using an .edu account can give you free access for a month.
