5 Reasons Why Students Need Amazon Prime
If you are going into your first year of college or if you are a seasoned senior, you don’t want to miss out on this great deal.
College students can get Amazon Prime for FREE for 6 months. Then, pay only half the price ($6.49) per month for the rest of your college career.
Cathy’s daughter, Haley, is back to share 5 of her favorite benefits of Amazon Prime as a college student. Read 20 more reasons why student’s should get Amazon Prime.
Here are just a few reasons why you should consider getting Amazon Prime Student from a student:
1. Save money on textbooks through Amazon Prime
Textbooks are so expensive. Especially if it’s for a class that you don’t think you’ll need to reference again once the semester is over. There are 3 reasons why I love to shop and save on my textbooks through Amazon:
First, Amazon’s textbook services offers a wide range of options for getting textbooks with Prime FREE Two-Day Delivery.
Second, I can rent textbooks for the semester and save up to 90%. TIP: Find and rent used textbooks because it is usually the cheapest option.
2. Enjoy unlimited reading on any device with Prime Reading
I love a good break with a good book. With a Prime Membership, you will have unlimited access to more than 1,000 books, current magazines, comics and titles with Audible narration.
3. Get unlimited photo storage for free
Amazon Photos offers unlimited full-resolution online photo storage and 5 GB free video storage. Plus, you can personalize Amazon devices like Fire TV and Echo Show with your favorite photos.
As someone who loves to take and print pictures, this Prime benefit is huge. I used to use Google Photos to save and access my footage. However since they capped their free storage at 15 gb, I now love Amazon’s free and unlimited photo storage.
4. Shop and save with Whole Foods
With a Prime account, students can save even more at Whole Foods. Find lots of exclusive weekly deals all over the store, and save an extra 10% on hundreds of sale items. Keep up to date on featured Prime Member Deals every week.
I am a foodie and love fresh ingredients. However, I, unfortunately, don’t have a Whole Foods near my small college town, so I don’t really use this Prime Student benefit. But I still think its great, because I would use it all the time.
5. Save money on streaming
A Prime member can get unlimited access to more than 2 million songs on Amazon Music. And, students can upgrade to Music Unlimited for only $0.99 per month. This exclusive offer is just for Prime Student members, and gives you unlimited access to 50 million songs, ad-free. Plus, you can listen offline with unlimited skips and rock out hands-free with Alexa.
Prime members also have instant access to a huge library of popular titles on Prime Video at no additional cost.
Upgrading to Music Unlimited and getting included access to Prime Video totals out to $7.48/month (after 6-month free trial). This is a pretty solid deal because you also get all the other benefits of a Prime Membership account. Compare this to the Spotify-Hulu student deal for $4.99. It’s just a couple dollars more, but you will have access to Prime Video exclusive content, ad-free music, free two day shipping, and so much more.
There are so many reasons to love Amazon Prime as a student. My number one reason is the free 6 month trial then the following half price after that. Living on your own can add up, but Prime Student is there to help. Plus, students can follow Prime Student on Facebook and Twitter for even more giveaways and deals.
