Existing customers are able to just add the benefit on to their account, and students who haven’t tried the service out yet can sign up for a free 6-month trial.
If you’re not familiar, Prime Student is a discounted version of Amazon Prime specifically for college students. Amazon offers Prime Student for 50 percent off, making it $6.49 a month. You have access to most of Amazon’s traditional Prime benefits with the program, but do not have access to Kindle Owner’s Lending Library, 20 percent off diapers, or household benefit sharing.
If you’re already an Amazon shopper, then this deal is kind of a no-brainer. Prime Student and the Unlimited Music subscription will set you back $7.49 a month.
Amazon Music Unlimited typically costs $7.99 a month for Prime members and $9.99 for non-prime members, so $.99 is a pretty dramatic discount. The service offers access to over 50 million songs.
If you’re not an Amazon shopper then the deal might be a bit less enticing. Spotify’s student offering is $5 a month, but also comes with Showtime and Hulu. Apple Music also offers its service for students for $5 a month but doesn’t offer any bonus add ons.
Regardless, if you’re a student who likes music (that’s pretty much all students, right), then there are streaming music bargains to be had everywhere this school year.
