School is by definition a learning experience, but that’s more true than ever at college. You’ll still be reading books and writing papers like before, but college teaches plenty of practical life lessons. One of the big ones is budgeting, as the sales of Ramen noodles would indicate. If you are a student or the parent of one, keep in mind the amazing benefits of being a student with Amazon Prime.
For starters, Amazon Prime is FREE for the first six months if you invest in Amazon Student. That means FREE two-day shipping on millions of items, deals and promotions exclusively for students, and more. After the six month period is over, students can still continue to enjoy Amazon Prime for half-price as long as they remain students. Additionally, they’ll pick up extra benefits like unlimited instant streaming of 41,000 movies and TV episodes, the ability to borrow FREE Kindle books, access to over a million songs, and a $10 credit for every friend you refer to Amazon Prime.
So, as you prepare to head down to the dorms this year, keep Amazon Prime in mind. It may not rank as highly on your list of priorities as making sure you don’t pay for a single meal during Welcome Week, but it’s probably next in line. Finally, if you’re interested in other discounts exclusive to students, check out Te@chthought. They’ve compiled a list of 104 organizations (one of which is Amazon Prime) that offer student discounts. They may not all be available in your area, but plenty of them will be.
