The only time you will get email from amazon on your school address is to confirm and link it to your existing amazon account.

If she wants a separate email address, just sign her up on gmail.

...or just set her up with a .edu one like this and she can get deals on Amazon. Those books are expensive even without shipping.

Nah. I get 27% off already. Although college kids get a better deal than that right now. 23% with a $50 service credit and $25 check if memory serves me correctly.

I'm the one who originally said falsely using an edu is wrong, remember? If your alma mater authorizes you to use your .edu then it isn't false use of an .edu
If you represent you answer 'yes' when asked if you are still a student that is a different matter.

wiggle and squirm all you want but you started out "tsk tsking" people for using an .edu email when they weren't a student.

and yet ... you are doing the same

You just try and justify it by saying "the school said i could..."

this isn't about the school, this is about you getting a school discount from some business when you are no longer student.

Tsk,Tsk hypocrite

I'm currently taking graduate courses in I.O. Psych.
I hold a bachelor's and Master's degree and have no qualms using my alma mater .edu as I paid for it.
What I was tsking was people fraudulently obtaining an .edu for which they never paid.
