It’s that time again. The holiday is over and most colleges are heading back in session, which means getting prepared for the spring semester.
Usually preparing for school means going store to store hunting for textbook deals. Or even the massive crowds, long lines and sometimes confusion at the bookstore on campus. Overall, the whole thing can be an exhausting experience.
Of course, a one-stop shop is ideal – especially for the busy lifestyle of the college student. However, finding a good one-stop shop complete has proven to be just as exhausting.
Fortunately, not anymore. Amazon Prime (which I already find amazing) is offering a new service: Amazon Prime Student.
Amazon Prime Student offers students free two-day shipping, exclusive college deals, unlimited streaming of tens of thousands of movies and TV shows with prime video and so much more!
I cannot tell you how beneficial the service has been to me and my college student! My oldest son and I started with the textbook store, which we were pleasantly surprised to discover offers savings of up to 80% off list price for rentals and up to 60% off purchases, saving time and money for college students during textbook shopping. Frustration-free textbook shopping made our preparation for the new semester a breeze!
Beyond the great pricing, my son loves that he can decide how long he wants to keep the books. I love that when it’s time to send the rentals back, Amazon covers the shipping fees. It is a win-win solution for ensuring that he has all the textbooks he needs for his classes without breaking the bank.
The textbook store is great, but I also know that my son isn’t hitting the books 24/7. When I peek into his room to check up on him, sometimes I’ll find that he’s taking a break – or not studying at all. I don’t mind it at all because I know that either way, Prime Student has him covered in that area, too.
Amazon Prime Student has added benefits like free game content every month for gamers. This includes member exclusive discounts on new release and pre-order boxed video games, and exclusive member content. Prime Student also offers unlimited listening to thousands of audio channels, such as TED talks and unlimited access to thousands of books with Prime Reading. Plus, the previously mentioned access to thousands of movies and TV shows. With so many features, he can get the study break that he needs whenever he needs it.
In fact, the service covers all the bases for students, offering academic references and entertainment. I know I look forward to saving on the cost of my son’s textbooks! Plus, the audio and Prime Reading access comes in handy during his 4-hour doctor’s visits for his medical condition.
I also have no doubt that my son will be taking advantage of the unlimited movies (when he probably should be studying). 🙂 Heck, I may even take in a few movies alongside him to enjoy some mother-son bonding time! Any way you look at it, there’s endless opportunities, savings, and fun for college students and moms alike by being a part of Amazon Prime Student!
Whatever your college student’s motivations are, Prime Student is a great resource for students and it’s available for a great deal. A Prime Student subscription is free for the first 6 months and students get 50% off the regular Amazon Prime membership at $49 annually. To learn more, visit the Amazon Prime Student website. You can also find out about the latest deals and promotions by following Amazon Prime Student on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter and Snapchat (add ‘amazonstudent’).
