Amazon Offers Students Prime for $5.49 a Month

Amazon Prime

Amazon is making Prime more accessible for students thanks to a new monthly payment option.

The online retail giant just announced that students can now subscribe to Prime for just $5.49 a month without an annual commitment. That's half off what you'd normally pay for Prime. The offer is available to all college students enrolled in two or four year colleges in the US.

Even better, college students can start out with a free six-month trial of Prime, courtesy of Sprint. After your first six months, you'll start paying $5.49 per month with the option to cancel anytime, or $49 a year.

To get the discounted student rate, you'll need to provide a valid .edu email address. Head here to sign up.

"Our new monthly payment option lets students enjoy the best of Amazon in a more flexible and simple way," Ellen Kinney, Director of Amazon Prime Student, said in a statement. "Whether it's getting their favorite products with free shipping or streaming thousands of popular movies and shows, Prime student members can experience all the benefits of Prime."

Prime offers free, two-day shipping on Amazon.com purchases; unlimited access to Prime Video, Prime Music, and Prime Reading; unlimited photo storage via Prime Photos; discounts on games; early access to Amazon's Lightning Deals; and special discounts at Whole Foods.

If you're not a student, you can still try Prime for free for 30 days; after that you'll pay $99 a year or $10.99 per month. If you plan to use it for any length of time, the annual fee is a better deal.
