Find New Music Using Amazon’s MP3 Store


Many services on the internet help you discover new music. Pandora and Grooveshark, for example, play music tailored to whatever taste you’ve set. The one limitation these services have is an inability to encounter completely unrelated songs.

Amazon MP3 offers a way around this. There are a variety of songs offered for free ranging from alternative rock to rap & hip hop. Currently there are also some seasonal albums and samplers available as well. The amount is not overwhelming but I’ve had some great finds looking through and listening to the free offerings so give it a shot and who knows, maybe you’ll find something you love!

on the Internet: Free Year of Amazon Prime for .edu Addresses!


[Amazon Logo]

I recently looked at Amazon Prime when looking at ordering some routers from Amazon. I didn’t end up getting the routers from them but Amazon Prime looks to be an amazing deal for anyone who deals with Amazon more than once a year.

The best part of Amazon Prime is the free two-day shipping on eligible items. While it’s reason to be cautious, if an item or a type of item you purchase frequently is eligible then the deal is worth it. For other items Amazon offers free shipping (that is, they normally cost some amount to ship but this fee is waived). Together this covers pretty much any item you can think to buy from Amazon.

For a college student this is a great opportunity to get groceries very conveniently and quickly. Or if you’re like my mom, this is a great way to save on sending a student snacks and such to make sure he’s eating well. And that doesn’t even begin to cover the potential savings on last minute textbook purchases or school supplies.

Even if you’re not a student or don’t have access to a .edu address, there is still a 30-day trial of Amazon Prime to see if it is useful for you. I think it’s a great opportunity to try it out.
