Extra Amazon Student Discounts
Amazon offers a few extra discounts for student members:
Up to 90% off Textbook Rentals – My son has already taken advantage of renting and buying discounted text books on Amazon, and returns them easily at his local Amazon campus store.
FREE 2-day delivery on prescriptions from Amazon Pharmacy. Plus, get prescription savings at more than 60,000 participating pharmacies in the U.S.
What Does Amazon Prime Student Cost?
So what does Amazon Student cost after the free trial?
If you want to continue with your membership after the free six month trial ends, pay only $6.49 per month!
Or upgrade to the yearly membership for just $59, which is also half off the normal price of Amazon Prime ~ love that. When a student graduates – or 4 years after signing up for Prime Student – the cost will automatically update to normal pricing.
My son has been using his free Amazon Student Account since heading to college, and we've loved enjoying all the benefits of it. The thing I love most is easily being able to ship him whatever he needs at school since it's not always easy for him to get to a local grocery (and Amazon's prices typically beat what he can get on campus).
