Amazon Is Hooking College Students up With Cheap Prime Memberships


College is expensive, so Amazon is doing its part to help students save money... so they can spend more. Amazon just came out with a new Prime subscription deal for college students in the U.S., and it'll definitely save some bucks.

Prime Student offers students 50% off Prime, including the usual perks: streaming access, photo storage, and two-day shipping. The deal also includes a free six month trial, just in case anyone is unsure if Prime is worth it (it's worth it). After that, the monthly fee is $5.49, which students can cancel whenever they want.

Amazon also offers an annual Prime Student deal at $49 per year. That ends up being $4.08 a month, but once the free trial period is over, it locks students in for another six months.

To be eligible for the Prime Student plan, users must have a .edu email address and "be able to provide proof of enrollment upon request."

Students will receive exclusive deals, including coupons for everyday college essentials. They can save even more (up to 90%) by renting, buying, selling, or trading in their textbooks or other used class items through Amazon. No membership is required.
