    They lost mine before they even knew they or I had it.

    I would have jumped all over the 7.99 price per month for the holidays.

    You know, it's funny when I first saw this on Techspot I had to buy something. I went to Amazon and while browsing saw the option to enroll in Amazon Prime but not for $7.99... it was $39... for a year! This was one lump payment, but it equates to $3.25 per month for all the same benefits.

    Needless to say, I went for it. My item was shipped quickly and arrived in two days :) I wonder if I just got lucky somehow? Anyone else saw this?

    $39 a year one sounds like Amazon Prime Student account to me.
