Look, we’re not here to be the password police. Sharing subscription logins is pretty routine these days, so no shame. But if you’re a student and you’re still using your parents’ Amazon Prime account, there’s a really good reason to stop. Amazon Prime Student is actually kind of better.
Yes, though it may come as a surprise, there is a Prime subscription just for students. Because Amazon knows #collegestudentproblems are real, the Amazon Prime Student membership is not only less expensive than a regular Prime membership, but it also comes with more perks. Read on below to learn all about them.
Will I still get fast Prime shipping?
Yes. The reason we all know and love Prime? Free two-day shipping, of course. So that doesn’t go away when you switch to an Amazon Prime Student account. You’ll still be able to get everything from books and beauty products to sneakers and school supplies fast and in a hurry when you need them.
What are the other perks?
In addition to fast, free shipping on tons of items, the Amazon Prime Student membership comes with tons of other benefits. Here’s a quick rundown:
Free food delivery with GrubHub+. If you use all your work-study money to order takeout, then you’ll definitely appreciate this perk. Your Amazon Prime Student membership will allow you to unlock $0 delivery fees from GrubHub. Yes, please!
Three months free of Calm. Whether midterms, finals or annoying roommates are causing you stress, access to the Calm app can definitely help ease your worries.
One month free of CourseHero. No money in your student budget for an IRL tutor? Use your Amazon Prime Student account to unlock CourseHero’s services.
