There are lots of confusing results when you Google this query, so that is why we have researched and written this helpful, comprehensive page.

As busy students with hectic social lives, we know your time is precious so if you need an answer straight away about Amazon student discounts, let us crack on and stop wasting your studying and boozing time!


So, the fantastic news is there is a specialist Amazon student discount programme dedicated to undergraduates called Amazon Student Prime. It is free to join and you get lots of fantastic benefits.

This is a unique and great student discount programme which is popular with students all over the globe. There are many benefits to this money-saving and time-saving scheme.


Amazon Student Prime is simple and easy to use and the first thing you need to do is to sign up on this page and validate your student status (which includes NUS students). All you need is an email ending in

Once you’ve done that you’re entitled to the following amazing discounts and offers:

  • FREE Prime for 6 months (gets you free next day delivery, see our section for more)
  • Discounted Prime membership thereafter
  • FREE one-day delivery
  • FREE  Prime video
  • FREE access to Books, Music & Magazines
  • Special access to lightning deals
  • EXCLUSIVE additional student discount codes

It really is a fantastic package so why not try it out? It’s free to sign up to, no obligation and if you don’t want discounted Prime membership after your free trial then you can cancel it whenever you want to.



So we’ve established that there is Student Prime but we often get asked if there is an Amazon Unidays code? The answer is currently there is no Unidays Amazon code.

If you search ‘Amazon’ on, the site offers a way for students to sign up to Student Prime, but there is no separate Unidays Amazon code to get a discounted amount such as 10% off.

There are some other student discount schemes in the UK such as NUS Totum and Student Beans so next, we discuss whether there is a discount available through them.



So the student discount programme is pretty special but there are still additional ways for students to save at

Yes, the little bushy-tailed Squirrel is a clever and diligent little thing and he’s been doing his research into how you can save even more with discount codes and sales alerts which could potentially save you money.

We’ve found that there is a vouchers page that students and anyone can use. They are product specific and last time we looked we found:

  •  10% off selected wireless headphones
  • 20% off Finish dishwasher tablets
  • 15% off Vitabiotics

Also, in the table below are the best ways to get discounts, with promo codes or otherwise:

Amazon Student Discounts Discount Value Ends
Free Amazon Student Prime Free Next Day Delivery 31/12/2020
50% discounts on Amazon outlet 50% 31/12/2020
20% Amazon voucher code on selected products 20% 30/07/2020

As well as there being short term promo codes that we update in May 2020, there is a dedicated vouchers page on Amazon, which has some useful coupons with savings such as 20% off. Take a look and see if there is anything to save you some more moolah!

The other tip is don’t forget that by joining Amazon student prime, you can specialised voucher codes just for students. It costs nothing, has a whole host of other benefits such as free Prime music and next day delivery.

Give it a go, you really don’t have anything to lose!



It would be easier to say what doesn’t Amazon sell. Literally millions of items are sold by them directly or through third-party sellers on the market place.

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.


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.

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.

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.


Top Student Buy: Amazon Echo Spot in Black – £99.99

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!

Top Student Buy: Keep Calm and Bin It Waste Paper Bin – £4.56

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!

Top Student Buy: 4-Drawer Plastic Storage Tower – £19.99

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.


Amazon Prime is a monthly subscription which means you get:

  • Unlimited next day delivery on items that qualify
  • Access to the video service where you can stream thousands of movie and tv box sets
  • Free streaming of Music
  • Free access to Twitch Prime (the game service)

The normal service costs £7.99 but you can have a 30 day trial for free.

However, if you’re thinking about getting this, SDS recommends that you opt for Student Prime instead, which is free for 6 months and then half price thereafter.


As well as the brilliant Amazon student program there are also other ways to save at

Yes, the little bushy-tailed Squirrel is a clever little thing and he’s been doing his research into how you can save even more and he’s put his recommendations below.
