These 8 Amazon Student perks will make your college years a breeze

Juggling school, work and home responsibilities in college is hard enough. Here are eight Amazon Student perks that will make sailing through college while keeping your wallet in check a breeze.

1) It’s your first step to college savings

You get all the Amazon Prime goodies: free two-day shipping (which will change your life forever, FYI) and access to deals on essentials like laptops and backpacks absolutely free for six months. Lucky for you, it’s only $49.99 for the rest of the year.

2 ) Share it with your dorm mate and spread the love

Amazon welcomes up to two people to share a single Prime subscription. Share the benefits with your dorm mates and split the tab when the trial is over.

3) Get last minute essentials in hours with Prime Now

Need a fresh case of ramen or a new box of Ticonderoga pencils? Stock up on all your college essentials and get same-day delivery, sometimes within two hours.

4) Keep precious packages safe with Amazon Locker

Is your dorm room full of skeezy students you’re uneasy around? If you’d rather not leave deliveries unattended while you’re in class, have it delivered to one of over 2,000 Amazon Lockers. These self-service kiosks span over 50 cities and keep your deliveries safe until you’re able to pick them up.

5) Feed your head with audiobooks

Never. Stop. Learning. Even when you’re out of class, you can work out your brain by listening to Prime exclusive audiobooks and podcasts, which would normally run you $60 a year.

6) Wind down with access to unlimited music and video streams

Treat yourself to stream binges of hit TV series like Transparent and The Man in the High Castle and movies like Star Trek Beyond and Spectre after hours of studying. If jamming out is more your thing, Prime Music gives you access to ad free on-demand music.

7) Back up important documents and photos with Amazon Drive

Whether you want to preserve photos of the milestones you’ll create or backup important projects and dissertations, Amazon has you covered. Every Prime subscription comes with 50GB of drive space. That’s more than enough to store your important files.

8) Read yourself silly with Prime Reading

You have no idea just how vast Amazon’s library is. Along with access to literary classics from the Harry Potter series to 1984, you’ll also be treated to magazines like People, National Geographic and Rolling Stone. Read on any Kindle device or on your tablet or phone with the Kindle app.

Join Amazon Student and get six months free. After that, your next six months are only $49.99.
