Amazon never ceases to amaze us. We actually do a good bulk of our grocery, baby, household and any other needed, non-perishable shopping on Amazon throughout the year because of their highly competitive prices – often much lower prices than even going to Walmart or Costco. We even end up using the digital coupons on Amazon and not have to cut out coupons and drive to the store. Our items arrive to our door in a couple of days and we are just happy thrifty campers.
We have a great guide on how every household can maximize Amazon Prime HERE to get better than Walmart or Costco prices.
Well, they have an even more attractive program for starving college students – the Amazon Student program.
It is basically just like Prime, only you get it for free for 6-months, then if you want to continue, it’s half the cost of Amazon Prime at only $49 for a year.
If you or anyone in your household is a college student to anywhere then this is the WAY TO GO for sure!
So, we love our regular prime that we pay full price for (because it is that worth it!), but we wanted to share the benefits with you again in case you are not sure of the Prime benefits that also equate in the Amazon Student program:
Basically, you get the first few options totally free the first 6 months – the benefit of the free-2-day shipping is alone worth it!
Then after 6 months, the Prime membership for most households is $99 for one year, but for students you get it for $49 – then you get the benefits of the movies, books and songs all year for free.
PLUS…. this is where this is really cool, and only for students who are using the Amazon Student program. You get to earn a little extra money too! After you join, you can tell all of your buddies about this and then you get $10 referral credit added to your account for each college student friend that also signs up! It does not appear to have a limit, so refer away and earn your college living, because you really can live off Amazon. 😉
We aren’t referring as we are not students, but this is a definite triple-plus of the whole deal for you college students!
So, by joining Amazon Student, you will receive many benefits. To be qualified to sign-up, you will need to enter your school and major and have an email address ending in .edu. My own mom even qualified for this same free Amazon Student Membership. She is in her 50’s and went back to school after all her kids left home. She is very happy with this freebie and brags about it to everyone. 🙂
Get signed-up for free Amazon Student HERE today to start reaping those benefits!
Don’t you just love Amazon 🙂 Saving others money and giving others opportunity to earn money too! Those are the sorts of things we get excited to tell you about!
If you are not a student……
If you are not a student, don’t sweat it…there is another way you can get a FREE Prime Membership: Everyone can get a free 2-month trial of the Amazon Prime program here. I know, it’s not 6 months, but 2-months is still great. Be sure to read the details!
