Amazon Prime Student Discounts

There are two discounts that you can get depending on your geographical location. If you’re in the US, you can apply for the Amazon Prime student discount, and if you’re in India, you can apply for the Prime youth discount provided you are between 18-24 years of age.

The Amazon Prime student discount gives the standard Prime membership at 50% off to students currently enrolled in at least one class in an eligible college or university. 

The program also offers additional benefits such as free good delivery, up to 10% off on flights and hotels booked through Student Universe and a one-month free subscription to Course Hero. Furthermore, students also get exclusive deals on college essentials, including computers, peripherals, video games, apparel and accessories and health and personal care products.

If you’re not a student and are under 24 years of age in India, Amazon also has a youth program for customers between 18-24 years of age. The program offers similar benefits: a Prime subscription at 50% off. The offer, however, can only be availed on the Amazon app. 

The exact steps for availing the discount can vary from person to person as Amazon likes to keep switching things around in its Android and iOS apps. However, you should see the offer show up when you’re signing up for a Prime subscription, provided you haven’t already used the benefit.
