Are you an Amazon Prime member with an annual or monthly payment plan and enrolled in a college or university? If so, you are eligible for Prime Student, a cheaper version of Amazon Prime specifically designed for students. With Prime Student, you get access to free two-day shipping and other Amazon-specific services at half the price of the traditional Prime membership. Plus, starting May 18, Amazon Prime Student now includes six free months of LinkedIn Premium. Benefits of LinkedIn Premium include InMail credits, more information about who viewed your profile, access to more than 15,000 LinkedIn learning courses taught by experts, and more.
If you're already subscribed to other streaming services such as Hulu, Netflix, Apple Music, or Spotify, Amazon's multimedia offerings may not offer you anything new. However, you can still check out the Amazon Prime video and music lists for Amazon Prime to view them. To qualify for Prime Student, you must be enrolled in at least one course at a college or university located in one of the 50 U.S. states, Washington DC or Puerto Rico.
You can be a full-time or part-time student as long as you take at least one course. You can only take advantage of the Prime Student discount for four years or as long as you're enrolled in a university, whichever is shorter. A great advantage for Amazon Prime students is buying new or used textbooks on Amazon and saving up to 80 percent. In addition to Prime shipping, you also have unlimited streaming access to Amazon Prime movies and TV shows.
Plus, Amazon regularly offers special promotions and rewards for Prime Students in collaboration with certain partner brands. Once you've signed up for your Prime Student account, make sure you take full advantage of its physical and digital benefits. So if it takes eight years to earn your degree, you can only take advantage of the Prime Student discount for four of them.
