It’s that time of year again, and students around the world are heading back to school for the 2013 – 2014 school year. As you’re shopping for back to school supplies, there’s a great offer from Amazon that every student should take advantage of– Amazon Student.
One of the best features of Amazon Prime is the free two day shipping on a large number of items in the Amazon marketplace. While this feature is normally reserved for regular Amazon Prime members that pay a yearly fee, students get this perk entirely free for 6 months.
The timing’s perfect for any last minute shopping during this holiday season, or it’ll let you receive your textbooks within a couple of days of hitting the checkout button. Now, you don’t have to wait a week to receive a new color TI-NSpire CX graphing calculator. It’s also perfect for those days that you realize you’re running out of pencils or erasers.
Amazon also sends exclusive deals and promotions to its student members, which are usually filled with great offers for school supplies and other cool stuff. Whether you’re looking to buy new dorm room furniture or rent your textbooks, Amazon is great about sending only relevant emails to its student members.
While Amazon Student members are able to use several Amazon Prime benefits, there are a couple of Prime-only perks that can be had for a discount as well. Amazon Student members are eligible to receive a 50% discount on a full Prime membership, which comes with the Amazon Prime Instant Video streaming service and the ability to borrow any of 350,000 free Amazon Kindle E-Books– with no due dates.
If any of these perks sound good to you, what are you waiting for? Sign up for Amazon Student for free– you just need your school’s email address. Even if you’re not convinced, you can still take a look at some of the other great benefits Amazon offers to Amazon Student members.
