This is an amazing offer for all UK students who have an email ending in “ac.uk”!
“A six-month free trial of Amazon Prime delivery benefits is available to eligible Amazon Student members. Discounts and promotions will be e-mailed to your Amazon.co.uk e-mail account or made available on the Amazon Student membership page.
After your six-month free trial of Amazon Prime delivery benefits, your Amazon Prime trial will automatically convert to a £39 per year Amazon Prime membership” – currently, this is half the normal price.
If you don’t want to continue with Prime after the free trial, please be warned that you need to let Amazon know well before the cut-off date. But when you come to pay for your Prime, you’ll also get the streaming of Amazon videos included in the price, and at £39 per year, that’s still a bargain!
(I’d like to add that I’m not affiliated to Amazon in any way, and I certainly do not approve of the way they treat their workers or their tax-evasion schemes, but I have been one of their clients for a long time, and I’ll continue to be, because as a provider of cultural goods, they simply cannot be beat on price and quality, for the time being. However, should I come across a more ethical company providing the same high level of service in the future, I’ll gladly switch providers and let you know about it.)
