Amazon Canada announced early this morning that they've officially launched a brand new Prime membership offer for university and college students, called Prime Student. Amazon is dropping their monthly rates significantly for Canadian students to have access to the perks of a Prime account. With Prime Student, the monthly fee will only be $3.99 a month - half of what existing Prime customers pay. 

How nice it'll be to no longer have to mooch off your Prime account-holding friends and family members for exclusive discounts and 24-hour shipping on your stuff. Prime Student is now available to all Canadians enrolled in two and four-year schools.
