Store Over, What’s Good to Buy

It would be easier to say what doesn’t Amazon sell. Millions of items are sold by them directly or through third-party sellers on the market place, not to mention the services like movies and tv shows. They really have delivery licked too with same-day delivery on some items, next day on pretty much everything and the cheaper standard delivery. This makes it super convenient for students. Of course don’t forget that with Prime for students, you get FREE next day delivery during the first 6 months and then half-priced Prime for the remaining of your university career and access to services such as movies and tv shows.

I love the unlimited photo storage with Prime Photos and the fact I can watch over 15,000 movies and tv shows – perfect for my hibernation!

Amazon Echo Family

These smart speakers have been revolutionary. They are voice activated and linked into Alexa, who is a kind of digital personal assistant. Seeing as your loan isn’t going to pay for a real one, we think this is a great compromise!

Need to order a pizza? Just ask the Echo. Need to put something in your diary, just speak it and it will be done. Making to-do lists are a breeze and seeing if you need to take a brolly to lectures couldn’t be easier just by asking ‘Alexa, what is the weather forecast for today?’. Unfortunately, she won’t go to lectures or tutorials for you and take notes or do your shift at the union bar but you can’t have everything now, can you?

Amazon is gradually increasing the range. The Dot is the smaller, basic version which costs £49.99 and is a great introduction. The Squirrel has seen reductions at sale times like Black Friday so keep your eyes peeled to save on the latest movies and tv shows. Then comes the Echo which is the standard, the Plus is the larger premium speaker and there is now the Echo Show which has a screen.


Cheap Amazon Fire Tablets are Perfect for Students

If you’re looking for a new tablet for uni life then you really should consider the Fire tablet range. They have excellent reviews, come in a range of sizes and tablet memory and best of all they are excellent value for money.

Coming in at the cheaper end, the Fire 7 is a great option which has fantastic specs and the 8GB model starts at just £49.99. If you want more memory it costs a bit more, you can choose which colour you want and you can link it up with your Echo if you have one. There are thousands of apps available including the big ones like Facebook and YouTube.

If you’re looking for a better screen, the Fire 8 HD is slightly bigger (8 inches, the giveaway is in the name we guess) but it has a High Density or HD screen. This is great if you want to watch films or YouTube a lot, it will really pop! And at just £79.99 it really is fantastic value for money and a great investment for students.

Need a bigger tablet? Then there is a 10-inch version called the Fire 10 HD. For just £149.99 you get a much larger tablet, which really comes into its own. Remember you can get this delivered for free the next day with Student Prime 6 month free trial.

Amazon Echo Spot in Black

The small Echo spot can be installed anywhere in your home and has upgraded voice recognition technology from the first version of the Echo. It’ll quickly become your go-to handsfree help as it connects to Alexa and links in your Amazon account, Amazon Prime, music streaming services and any smart home devices you have. You can also call or message anyone else you know with an Amazon Echo device, so you’ll be able to keep in contact without finding your phone, and the software is continually updated so you’ll be able to try new things with it every day!

Keep Calm and Bin It Waste Paper Bin

Students aren’t exactly known for their tidiness or well-ordered homes, and when you’re working to a deadline on a project its all too easy to quickly find yourself surrounded by rubbish with no time, or indeed motivation, to clean it all up. This quirky waste paper bin fits in the corner of your bedroom nicely for you to toss any mess in and empty later to your home’s main bin… so no one can accuse you of not keeping things clean around the flat!

4-Drawer Plastic Storage Tower

There’s always just so much ‘stuff’ in your room, no matter how often you spring clean the place…and it always seems to accumulate! This storage tower looks neat and is lightweight (and on wheels, should you ever need to move it around) and makes for a great place for you to stash books, stationery, clothes, make-up and other essentials… you can sort through them and tidy them all up later, but at least this will get them out of the way.
