As students head off to college, there is one lesson worth learning before classes even start. What is a Prime Student membership? Students enrolled in two-or four-year colleges are eligible for a six-month trial of Prime Student. After the six-month trial, Prime Student is 50% off a regular Prime membership.

Nowhere else can students go to get thousands of movies and TV shows to instantly watch, stream music, receive discounts on college essentials, and get fast, free shipping all in one place. We met with a dozen Prime Student members from Oakland University, University of Denver, University of Oregon and other schools, to get the scoop on how to get the most out of Prime.



These are just some of the college students from nearly 400 campuses across the country who come together each year to join Prime Student’s brand ambassador program. These are passionate, driven college students who play a key role in introducing the membership to their campuses. They educate and encourage their peers to experience and use their Prime benefits and receive career development coaching from Amazon along the way. It’s not just a part-time job, it’s a chance to help their peers. Boise State University student Riley shared “I’m actually saving people money. They love it just as much as I do and they use it as much as I do. So it’s like you’re putting their passion into it. I don’t feel like I’m working, I’m having fun.”
