Amazon Prime has so many great benefits, including unlimited fast shipping, Prime music, exclusive deals, try before you buy and so many more – but do students get it for free?
Ah, student life. When I was a student, I spent all my money on going out and clothes and never had anything left at the end of the month for anything practical. Any way I could save my pennies was very welcome, so I really made the most of those student discounts.
Amazon Prime feels like a necessity in this day and age. For me, the best thing about it is the super-fast delivery, especially now I live outside of the city. Of course, extras like Amazon Prime and Prime music are great too.
Amazon Prime Day is now finally here too, so if you don’t have a Prime account, now could be the time to make the jump. Here’s what you need to know about their student discount.
