Amazon launches Prime Student in the UK with one-day delivery, Prime Video and more
University students and anyone in higher education in the UK can now take advantage of Amazon's Prime Student. The monthly plan costs just £3.99 -- half the regular price of Prime -- and it includes unlimited one-day deliveries, access to Prime Video, Prime Music and much more.
Anyone eligible for the program can take advantage of a six-month free trial to see if it's something that works for them. In addition to numerous Amazon services, Prime Student also gives subscribers money off textbooks, stationery and university essentials.
- Amazon hikes monthly Prime fee by 18 percent
- Amazon offers refunds to people who paid to remove ads from Prime Exclusive Phones
- Amazon buys smart doorbell and home security firm Ring for over $1 billion
Prime Student has been available in the US for a number of years now, and the expansion to the UK shows that it's clearly a program that has worked well for Amazon in addition to its subscribers. The six-month free trial is provided "courtesy of Braun" and for anyone looking to save even more money, it's possible to sign up for a year for £39 rather than the £47.88 it would cost to pay out £3.99 each month.
