There are a many reasons to sign up for Amazon Prime, such as faster/free delivery, access to a bunch of other services that are exclusive to Prime members, access to videos, music, and so on. However we guess there are some who might not see the need to subscribe due to concerns about cost.


The good news is that if you’re a student and you do a lot of shopping on Amazon, you’ll be pleased to learn that Amazon has since announced a discounted subscription plan for students. This discounted plan is aimed at college students and it will only cost them $5.49 a month, which is about the price of a cup of coffee, but you’ll get access to a pretty much all of the same Prime features that regular subscribers get, except at a cheaper price.

However it should be noted that this is only applicable to college students in the US who are enrolled in four or two year college programs, so if you’re doing a short course that’s less than 2 years, then we guess you’d be out of luck. If this sounds like something you could be interested in, then head on over to Amazon’s Prime website for the details. All you’ll need is a valid student email address and you’ll be good to go.
