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:

1. Grubhub+ Student

Get a free Grubhub+ Student monthly membership. This includes free unlimited food delivery for students (off-campus orders over $12), special perks, donation matching, and Premium support from Grubhub+ elite Care.

2. Calm

Students can experience three months of Calm, the No. 1 app for meditation and sleep, for free, and then for just $8.99/year (normally $69.99/year). This gives Prime Student members access to Calm’s Premium subscription with music, sleep stories, and more to help them relax.

3. StudentUniverse

Prime Student members can get up to 10% off flights and hotels (many of which are already discounted) from StudentUniverse, plus free premium customer support with every booking.

4. Course Hero

Enjoy one month of Course Hero for free, then pay just $9.95/month (normally $39.95/month). Students can access resources for their courses with step-by-step explanations, 24/7 homework help, textbook solutions, and more.

5. Prime Video Channels

With Amazon Prime Video, students can add channels like SHOWTIME, EPIX, ALLBLK, Sundance Now, and more for just 99 cents/month each for up to 12 months (normally $3.99 to $10.99/month).

6. Amazon Music Unlimited

Upgrade to Amazon Music Unlimited, the premium subscription tier of Amazon Music for just 99 cents/month to access more than 75 million songs. Amazon Music Unlimited Student Plan customers can now access Amazon Music HD at no extra cost, offering the highest-quality streaming audio for even more music fans.

7. 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. 

Third, I can purchase eTextbooks (which are usually cheaper) to read with your free Kindle app.

8. 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.

9. 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.

10. 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.

Final Thoughts

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.

There are so many more deals and savings that students can benefit from with an Amazon Prime Student account. Check out a few of these, then head over to Amazon to sign up today!
