College Students Can Get a Free Amazon Account

If you are a college student, you may be interested in a FREE Amazon Prime account– Amazon Student.

College students can receive a Free 6-month trial of Amazon Student which includes 2-day free shipping as well as free streaming to thousands of movies and shows.

After 6-months the cost of an Amazon Student account is $49, which is half the price of an Amazon Prime account. However, you can cancel before the free trial is over if you want.

It’s been awhile since I’ve had an Amazon Student account, but I believe you don’t receive all the same benefits if you were a full prime member but you do receive free shipping and streaming which are my favorite perks of Amazon Prime.

Amazon Student is a great way alternative to the Campus bookstore and with free 2-day shipping it makes it easy to get your textbooks quick. If you do purchase textbooks off Amazon, you can use promo code TEXT15 to save $15 off new textbooks off for orders of $100 or more.

To qualify for a free 6-month Amazon Student account, you just need an active .edu e-mail address, so if you are taking a grad class/ have an .edu e-mail account, you may qualify too!

For more information regarding Amazon Student, please head here.

Do you use Amazon Student? Do you have any tips for saving money on college textbooks?
