amazonGlassdoorAnyone currently enrolled in college is probably (hopefully) well aware of all of the perks a college ID can get you. Whether it’s discounts on phone bills, gym memberships, subscriptions to newspapers and magazines, or movie tickets, the deals available to college students are unbeatable.

However, students may still be unaware of one of the best values out there for anyone with an .edu email address: a free six-month membership to Amazon Student.

Amazon Student is closely affiliated with Amazon Prime, offering many of the same perks, including free two-day shipping, unlimited photo storage with Prime Photos, and exclusive discounts available only to students. Amazon Student subscribers also have access to Amazon's streaming service, Prime Video.

But as a student, you get six times as long of a free trial as the rest of the Amazon-browsing public.

While the offer is meant for students, it's technically available to anyone who still has access to their college email address, so if you're about to graduate but still use your .edu address, now is a great time to jump on the deal. We promise we won't tell.

Once your free six months run out, you’ll have a chance to buy into a year of Amazon Prime at half its normal cost. For just $50, you’ll have access to all the deals you did with Amazon Student, plus the Kindle Lending Library and much more for a full year.

If you’re in school, or recently graduated but still with access to your college email, Amazon Student is a great (and free) way to test out a membership to Amazon Prime — to see if it’s something you might be interested in moving forward. For many, it's a service that quickly becomes indispensable.
