Amazon Student Discounts and Free Trials
Amazon is money saving haven for savvy students. Amazon knows this and is catering to those student hoping to make loyal lifetime customers. Now is the best time to take advantage of the generous offers and trials that Amazon has created and get hundreds of dollars in free stuff!
The best deal that all students should take advantage of is the 6 month free trial to Amazon Prime. This is much better than the standard 30 trial available to non students and includes all the great benefits like free two-day shipping on over 50 million items, unlimited streaming of Prime movies and TV shows, unlimited photo storage with Prime Photos and much more (including some great video-game discounts). After your trial is over you can continue with a full prime membership for 50% off the regular price.
This one is my personal favorite and what made me fall in love with audiobooks. Have you tried Audible and think you can’t get the trial? Think again! Amazon often resets the trial for dormant accounts after a few months so it’s always worth giving it a try.
Spotify no longer dominates the streaming music business. Both Google Play and Apple Music have put forward good competitors but our favorite is Amazon’s Music Unlimited. This service has only been around for since late 2016 but they already have 10 million more songs than Spotify! (40M vs 30M). There are lots of pricing options for students on a tight budget. Regular pricing is $9.99 a month, however if you’re a Prime member that is reduced to $7.99. An even cheaper option is available for 3.99 if you own an Amazon Alexa Echo or Echo Dot device, however you’re limited to playback on those devices only so we don’t recommend that. We do recommend that you try the 30 day risk free trial and see for yourself how good this Spotify killer is.
My second favorite free trial perk from Amazon. Not only do you get access to over a million books, you also have free access to thousands of audiobooks as well. Some of the great titles available include The Handmaid’s Tale, 1984 and the Harry Potter series
Amazon is the place to save money on textbooks. Most students know this by know buy if you haven’t learned this, check it out now. We know students who saved thousands of dollars over their 4 years buy savvily buying and selling their textbooks. Bonus, Amazon currently has an offer for $10 when you spend $100 on Textbooks using the code TEXT10
