Want the best deal for your new school year? Sign up here for Amazon Prime Student now!
The end of summer is just around the corner and students are slowly preparing to go back to school. This year, Amazon is ready to help every student get what they need by offering a 6 months free Amazon Prime account just for students. Read below for how to get this deal and what you need to prepare yourself for a new school year during a global pandemic.
This school year will look a little different than the ones before. With many classes moving online, Amazon is here for you to create your perfect learning environment at home.
What are the benefits of Amazon Student Prime?
Amazon has become a daily staple in the lives of many as quarantine and lockdowns prevented people from leaving their homes in 2020. But at €7,99/month ($12.99) or €69/year ($119), many students find Prime an unnecessary expense.
However, as a student, you can try this service for free for six months and get the following benefits:
- Free two-day shipping
- Access to Prime Video
- Access to Amazon Music
- Special Student Promotions
- Free and discounted e-books for Kindle Owners Lending Library
- Half price Prime membership (€3,99) when the free six-month trial ends
All this for FREE for six months!
Seems like a good deal?
This is what you need to register
- An Amazon account. If you don’t have one already, sign up here. It’s free but you must register with a credit card so that Amazon can charge you for purchases.
- Prove that you are a student. You must sign up with a college-issued email address. If you don’t have one of these, you will have to email Amazon a scan of a document proving you are a student such as a transcript or a student ID. There’s more information on this here.
- When you are finished with your Student Prime account make sure you cancel your membership before the trial ends. Otherwise, you will be charged the discounted rate for the next four years, or until you graduate.

Things to get
Once school begins again things are going to look a little different. Many classes are going to be taught online and this means that you may need to upgrade your home office. We’ve picked out the best things to get to make this school year a success!
- A New Printer
If you don’t have a printer, now may be the time to get one of these ones. With lockdowns and small business closures, your local printing shop may have irregular hours. And after watching your professor go on for two hours on a video call about the biological components of a cell, give your eyes a break from the screen and print those mandatory readings.
- A chair
I know that you got your great vintage chair from some cool second-hand shop. But if you are going to study hard at home this year, you are going to need some support for those long hours spent on your computer.
Our favourite pick for a proper desk chair is this one for €40,99.
- A new desk
Have you been trying to write that paper while lying in bed but you keep falling asleep? Researchers have said that having the optimal environment for work makes it easier to get things done. Not only does this mean you should get a great desk chair, but also that you need to replace that stack of cardboard boxes currently parading as a desk in your room.
This brand new desk comes in different colours and is a great option if your student room is on the smaller side.
- A lamp
When creating the perfect work environment, you need to see the light. Literally. Having a good light source can help when you are burning that midnight oil studying for your exam. It’s also better for your eyes! Try this pick, an LED dimmable lamp with three colours and three brightness levels for only €19,99.
Get the books you need shipped right to your door and save your back from that extra weight. In addition to ordering the books which you will need for class, How to Become a Straight-A Student will help make this year a success. Tony Buzan, a man inspired by the learning tactics of Leonardo da Vinci and Albert Einstein. This book guides students on how to improve their grades, make more effective notes, plan better essays, and make associations between different subjects, all while improving your memory and recall ability.
- Back to school outfit
You may be seeing your classmates virtually but that doesn’t mean you need to show them your sweats every day. We recommend the perfect beanie to show off your personality in zoom calls – and it hides your unwashed hair.
- Internet Speed
Finally, the most important thing on this list is to upgrade your internet speed. You need to be sure that your video calls won’t freeze at the crucial moments when your professor is explaining how the French Revolution happened. Upgrade your internet for only €2,99/month with the Internet Option Power Upload by Vodafone.
We hope that Amazon Student Prime can help make your school year a little less stressful. Did we forget anything? Take a look at this video for some inspiration about what you can order from Amazon.
