Shop and Save with Amazon Prime Student

Love to shop online? I do too. You know I do. The era of going through malls and checking different brick and mortar establishments is so 2016. I still do but not as much as I used to. It’s no longer an ideal option to head out, waste time on long lines and travel just to purchase a few stuff. Which is why I love shopping through Amazon, and as an Amazon Prime Student member I get to enjoy all the prime benefits – for less!

Say what? To my surprise, a lot of my friends and even family members (who shops at and have students in their household) who aren’t aware of Amazon Prime Student – same benefits of Prime but only for $49/12 months! For those of you aren’t familiar, the regular price of Prime membership is $99/12 months. If you’re a student or have a student in your household, this is definitely one of those deals you wouldn’t want to pass up on.

What is my favorite feature? The free two-day shipping, exclusive discounts/college deals and the unlimited streaming of tv shows, movies, and music!!! I’ve been a proud member since 2009. When I started taking classes, I immediately switched my account to Prime Student. Here’s what my account looks like …

Amazon Prime Student Benefits

As you can see on the screenshot, Amazon added a bunch of new benefits! For those who loves to play games (like yours truly!) or just wishes to take a break from studying, there’s a free game content every month. If that’s not enough, there’s a lot more with Twitch Prime.

Want to know why I highly recommend Amazon Prime Student? Because on top of everything that I have already mentioned, they also offer audio series with Audible as well as unlimited reading (on any device) with Prime reading. They also have Amazon Textbooks Store where students can save up to 60% off their purchases. Say goodbye to the traditional approach of schooling and shopping!

Prime Delivery: FREE Two-Day Shipping
