What is Amazon Prime Student? Everything you need to know

A Level results are out and this September lots of students will be moving to a new city in the height of Back to School season, and discovering the exact limit on how many shots are too many shots. That, and broadening their minds, of course.

There will be plenty of new life lessons and hacks learnt, namely how to make that student loan stretch further and scope out all the places offering a student discount. One of the most important is Amazon Prime Student. Luckily, we’re here to tell you all about it.

We continually check thousands of prices to show you the best deals. If you buy a product through our site we will earn a small commission from the retailer – a sort of automated referral fee – but our reviewers are always kept separate from this process.

How much does Amazon Prime Student cost?

Really, Amazon Prime Student is like a Russian Doll, in that it sits primly as a deal within a deal. Not only does the fully-fledged membership come at a discounted rate to the non-student Prime price, it’ll open you up to even more opportunity to save money, starting with a free trial.

Unlike the standard 30-day free trial offered for a regular Prime membership, students can enjoy six full months of Student Prime for free, giving oodles of time to figure out whether it’s just what you need.

When it comes around to paying for it once those initial six months end, save a whopping 50% off your membership. With standard rates of £79 a year or £7.99 a month, students can choose between a £39 yearly cost (equating to £3.25 a month) or choose a monthly plan of £3.99 payments.

What does Amazon Prime Student come with?
