A College Student Must-Have: Amazon Prime Student

By: Megan Johnson, Wright State University

As a parent or guardian, maybe you already have an Amazon account where you buy your student back-to-school items, textbooks and more. Now, according to a recent press release, your student can also get in on the fun and earn credit for getting their friends to join!

Amazon Prime Student offers six-month free trials to college students and memberships at half the price of Amazon Prime. Amazon Prime Student gives your student the following worthy benefits:

  • Free Two-Day Shipping on more than 30 million items
  • Unlimited streaming of tens of thousands of movies and TV shows with Prime Video
  • Exclusive college deals
  • Free game content with Twitch
  • Unlimited listening to original Audible series
  • Unlimited reading with Prime Reading

In addition to these benefits, for a limited time, students can earn themselves and friends a $10 credit for each person they refer who signs up for an Amazon Prime Student trial.

As students head back to class, do not forget the Amazon Textbooks Store, which offers savings of up to 80 percent off list price for rentals between 30 and 360 days and up to 60 percent off purchases. Your student can decide how long they need their textbook — thanks to Amazon’s flexible rental program — and send back the items for free when finished. Tell your student to follow Amazon Prime Student on InstagramFacebook and Twitter so they don’t miss out on all the latest back-to-school deals!

Send your student this link to get them set up with an Amazon Prime Student account: amazon.com/join-student.
