Here's why you can trust us. A cheaper Prime for college students Amazon Prime Student is a cheaper version of Amazon Prime. It's specifically designed for college students and gives them access to free 2-day shipping and a variety of other Amazon-specific services at half the price of the company's traditional Prime membership. Starting May 18, Amazon Prime Student now includes 6 free months of LinkedIn Premium (opens in a new tab).
Benefits include InMail credits, more information about who viewed your profile, access to more than 15,000 LinkedIn learning courses taught by experts, and more. As for the added benefit of streaming services, if you're happy with other video or music streaming services you're already subscribed to (such as Hulu, Netflix, Apple Music, or Spotify), Amazon's multimedia offerings might not offer you anything new. Check out the Amazon Prime video (opens in a new tab) and music (opens in a new tab) lists for Amazon Prime to view them.

If, for any reason, you receive an email from Amazon stating that your annual or monthly Prime Student subscription will end soon, but you are still enrolled in college, you can check your ongoing status to expand the service. You can also take advantage of the Amazon Prime Student program to get the subscription service at a great discount and use it for purchases, streaming and more.
American students have even more incentives, such as being members of Twitch TV, Prime Gaming, and the ability to rent textbooks. Of course, one of the main benefits of having an Amazon Prime Student account is accessing exclusive offers and discounts.
