SEATTLE, Wash. — The New Year is in full swing and Amazon is helping college students return from the holidays and get ready for the second half of the academic year, from restocking everyday essentials to renting textbooks. Amazon Prime Student, which is half the price of a regular Amazon Prime membership, offers students the ease of shopping online with Free Two-Day Shipping, unlimited streaming of tens of thousands of movies and TV shows with Prime Video, exclusive college deals and so much more. And, for a limited time, students can earn themselves and their friends a $10 credit for every person they refer who signs up for an Amazon Prime Student trial. Find out more here.

Students who sign up for Amazon Prime Student receive a six month trial and immediately start enjoying Free Two-Day Shipping on more than 30 million items plus free game content with Twitch, unlimited listening to original Audible series and unlimited reading on any device with Prime Reading. Amazon Prime Student members can also take advantage of unlimited streaming of movies and TV shows through Prime Video.

Once bags are unpacked and students settle in to prepare for classes, Amazon makes the transition from vacation back to class easy with the Amazon Textbooks Store, offering savings of up to 80% off list price for rentals between 30 to 360 days and up to 60% off purchases. With Amazon’s flexible rental program, students can decide how long to keep the material. And, when it comes time to send items back, Amazon will pay for return shipping.

And, don’t forget to redeem those Amazon Gift Cards. Amazon Gift Cards do not expire and can be redeemed on hundreds of millions of items on from physical to digital products, including those dorm room or apartment necessities.
