    What can I do with a .edu email address?

    My school just started handing them out and I asked whats so special about them. He replied and said "There are special deals like free music etc etc"! Free music instantly made me cream my pants but I have yet to find places that give free music to students. Ugh What other shit can I do with it? Also is the free music DRMed?

    I dunno but I suspect it can get you a huge number of great offers for penis enlargement, money laundering scams, and midget fetish porn!

    I've never heard of free music, but I've seen Microsoft give big discounts to students on stuff like Office 2007. They validate you by seeing if you have an .edu e-mail address. Good luck finding a free music site for students though, if it does exist it's probably crap anyway.

    Most cell phone providers will allow you to sign up for discounted plans, and they use your school email address to check your eligibility. I save $15 a month with mine.

    I remember Microsoft has some special program where you can get office and windows real cheap if you use a .edu address?

    For places that offer discounts for students, is all they check is your email? Because I still have my .edu address but I graduated long ago.

    My school gives me office 2007 ultimate or vista for $15. As it's a requirement for all students to rent a tablet you can bet they are sleeping with Microsoft. Of course only 1 copy per student.

    Re: What can I do with a .edu email address?

    It's no different than any e-mail address, it's just universities like to circle-jerk about how they have their own e-mail systems and give each student one, refusing to send e-mail anywhere but there.

    But hey, I've had people think I was a professor before when i gave them my college email address.

    Nearly all schools have this deal with MS.
