    Hiya,

    Just got my NUS card and read about the Amazon student prime membership. Tried to register but it asks for a university email address - the OU doesn't use those, you use your personal email address throughout...

    So I looked at the alternative ways to register, and they ask for a scan of your NUS card (no problem), plus letters confirming registration, your expected graduation, cost of your course and a bunch of other stuff - all on headed university paper. The OU send everything by email so I have nothing on headed paper.

    Anyone know any ways around this or any alternative ways to register? I can't believe they need so much documentation for the membership - surely the fact that I have the NUS card is pretty much proof enough?
