As the start of the academic year gets closer, more perks have been added to Amazon Prime Student. In the past, student often just piggybacked on their parents Prime account but that’s no longer allowed and Amazon Prime Student, launched some months ago, is tailored to students and well worth investigating, especially if you have a family member heading off to college this autumn.
The new perks for students include access to Amazon ticket pre-sales, unlimited Prime Reading and deals on cloud storage services. Amazon Prime for students costs £39 a year, which is a pretty good deal, and you can also bag 6 months free. (That’s not new but 18 months of Amazon Prime for that money strikes us as very reasonable indeed.)
The new services come on top of the usual features of Amazon Prime such as faster delivery including same-Day Delivery on a million items in selected postcodes in Greater London, Liverpool, Leeds, Manchester, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Birmingham, and Bristol. There’s also Prime Music access, videos and early access to the lighting deals.
To qualify for Amazon Prime Student you’ll need a university .ac.uk email address or another proof of your student status. You’ll need to provide information about the course you’re following and your expected graduation date. Find out more here.
