College Freebies, There's One in Particular Every Student Should Know About

College freebies are what every student wants, and even sometimes needs, to survive college.

And there’s one I think EVERY college student should know about.

College is expensive so, any free offer is a great free offer.


In my opinion, Prime Student is one of the best student discount perks.

Did you know that as a college student you can get a SIX MONTH trial of Prime Student for free?

Prime Student is almost identical to an Amazon Prime membership.

With it, you’ll score half of a year of Prime like benefits at no cost to you!

I’m sure you can already imagine all the use you’ll get out of it. But maybe I’m just an Amazon addict.

To “cash in” on this hot offer:

All you’ll need is .edu email address and to be currently enrolled in a college or university.

Even better:

If after the trial you decide you want to keep your Prime Student membership, it’s only half the cost of a regular Prime membership!!

It’s easy peasy to get started and you can reap the rewards of this student discount for up to 4 years.

What’s Included With Prime Student?

College Freebies

As a Prime Student member, you’ll receive a 6-month trial that includes FREE Two-Day Shipping on literally millions of items.

This is my fav part of this college freebie, as the only thing better than free shipping is fast and free shipping!

During the trial period you’ll also:

  • Have access to unlimited movies and TV show streaming (Prime Video)
  • Have unlimited photo storage
  • Get Free Same-Day Delivery in eligible areas (so cool!!)
  • Have unlimited reading on any device (think Kindle books)
  • A single 30-day free channel subscription for

Twitch Prime has a collection of benefits on including free game content, exclusive emotes and ad-free viewing.

The Prime Video TV show and movie line up is comparable to Netflix or Hulu. I often bounce between all three streaming providers actually!

And after the trial if you so choose to continue your Prime Student membership…

You’ll have all the aforementioned perks, plus:

  • Unlimited music streaming capabilities through Amazon Music (it’s sort of like Spotify)
  • One free 30 Twitch channel subscription every 30 days as a member

How Much Does it Cost After the Trial Ends?

College freebies are a godsend, but they all run out sometime.

Now let’s get to the question that’s burning in the back of your mind – how much it costs after the trial period.

Remember I said it’s HALF the price of a regular Prime membership:

The cost of a Prime Student membership is only $59 for a year. OR if you opt for the monthly subscription, it’s just $6.95 per month.

And again, you can get this price for up to FOUR years as a student.

For a quick comparison:

Think about this – the price of Netflix subscription for a whole year is $120 (minimum).

Amazon Student is just $59 per year or $6.95 per month.

In my opinion, a Prime Student membership more than pays for itself. The streaming services can replace Netflix and you get free two day shipping: not even including all the other extra benefits.

So what do you think – is a Prime Student membership worth it to you?
One of the best college freebies or nah?
