    depending on what do you want to use it for, it can be pretty much useless to get one, nevertheless you can get one on 2 or 3 sites i know of, one of them is californiacolleges.edu, but if you want to use the address to be able to leverage a student discount somewhere, there's a 99% chance that it won't work, that's exactly because anybody can get one and the sites which offer the discounts are aware

    if you want to use it for other than discounts purposes, then i guess, enjoy :)

    Alternatively find a list of .edu domains that you know have emails and figure out how they map students names to email addresses and then try to spam all possible combinations of .edu email addresses with an offer to buy the account.

    All you need is one person to day yes. Alternatively find universites in area and be that shady guy hitting up students to buy their email address.

    Interesting fascination, OP. Who on earth gave you this idea of "prestige" associated with .edu email address?

    Yeah for whatever reason Fiverr keeps banning these guys. You've got to do a little research, this answer should give you a head start https://www.quora.com/How-can-I-get-an-edu-email-without-being-in-school/answer/Serena-Adams-5
