It’s no secret that I love Amazon for its products and services, but parents and students are surprised to learn of enhanced Prime membership benefits, free trials and extended services and deals, just for students.

Join Amazon Student FREE Two-Day Shipping for College Students – Get special Prime benefits, just for students!
Most recently Amazon Prime membership has gotten the added perk of Prime Music. Any digital music – song, album or playlist – marked as ‘Prime’, can be nabbed for FREE if you are an Amazon Prime member!

My favorites are the Prime Music playlist. You add the playlist to your Amazon Music library and then get the Amazon Music app for PC, Mac, Android (Amazon Appstore) or iOS (Apple devices need the app which can be found in the iTunes Appstore).  All of the apps are FREE and allow you to listen to the FREE Prime Music, and download the music to your devices to listen even when you don’t have internet access.

The Prime Music benefit is ideal for students who constantly crave music!  My daughter is 15 and can’t get enough music.  Prime Music has virtually eliminated the need to purchase any, and when we are in the car she streams her downloaded playlists to the Bluetooth car stereo for everyone to enjoy!

 We also use Prime Instant Video to supplement our cord cutter lifestyle. This is also ideal for college students who have access to the internet, but may not have cable TV in their dorm rooms.

You can watch on a PC or on a streaming device like Roku, Blu-ray player or Smart TV with the Amazon Instant Video app installed.

Did you know you get 5GB of FREE Amazon Cloud storage?  You don’t have to be a Prime member for this benefit – it’s for any Amazon customer to use to store their media. You can purchase more storage, and it’s about half the cost of Apple’s iCloud storage.

You can also test drive apps for FREE! Here’s a link to the page with the latest Android apps.

Prime Pantry is a very new program for Amazon.  When it came out my first thought was how great it would be to setup college care packages!

Prime Pantry allows you to select from grocery items and ship them for one low price. The cool part is that as you fill your box, you get a running total of the weight so that you can adjust as needed to stuff your box.
