Get ’em when they’re young, as they say, and Amazon is using that strategy rather smartly. This is aimed pretty much at college students, out on their own(ish) for the first time, and looking to save money. Amazon Prime Student is sort of Amazon Prime Lite for those living on a very tight budget (it’s not clear that you actually have to be a student, or how they’d verify that). New users get the ubiquitous 2-day free shipping, access to Prime Video streaming, unlimited photo storage, and their own feed of special deals. All this for half the price of standard Prime. BUT WAIT, THERE’S MORE: with a special promotion courtesy of Sprint, the first six months are FREE! Check it out!
(And a reminder: Amazon also has a textbook purchase/rental service that can save students hundreds of dollars a year.)
