But since the game releases Friday and I cannot find any deals, this might be as good as it gets.
It includes free release day shipping (Friday).
My son got a free student prime trial. He went to a junior college last summer so he qualified. I think you just need an .edu email address. I am sure if you are creative enough you could find a way.
BTW I was skeptical but I really like prime. I have been watching "The Wire" which comes with amazon prime and it is pretty good.
Hope this helps someone.
