Amazon Offering 6 Month Trial of ‘Prime Student’ And ‘Back To School’ Deals On Fire Tablets
As we hurtle towards the end of summer, it’s time to start looking at things which can help out your kids as they head back to school and university. Amazon has put together some really great deals on both their ‘Prime Student‘ packages and their ‘Fire Kids Edition Tablets‘ which we just wanted to highlight for you.
‘Prime Student’ gives all university and further education students get access to Prime benefits including unlimited One-Day Delivery, unlimited access to award-winning movies and TV episodes with Prime Video and unlimited access to more than two million songs with Prime Music as part of the Prime Student six-month trial at no cost, courtesy of Braun.
Prime has an incredible selection of tv shows right now, including ‘Lucifer’, ‘American Gods’, ‘Preacher’, ‘The Tick’, ‘Man In The High Castle’, ‘The Grand Tour’, ‘Sneaky Pete’, ‘Fear The Walking Dead’, ‘Outlander’, ‘Vikings’, ‘Black Sails’, ‘Transparent’, ‘Turn’, ‘Halt & Catch Fire’, and many many more.
For 2017, ‘Prime Student’ has also added brand new advantages including exclusive access to Amazon Tickets pre-sales and Prime Live Events, Prime Reading and AWS cloud storage. Additionally, you can also:
- Save up to 10% on thousands of textbooks
- Save up to up to 20% on Amazon Basics
- Save 5% on Oxford Campus stationery
- From September, save 10% on Amazon Fire TV Sticks and Amazon Echo dot
Following their six-month trial, ‘Prime Student’ members can continue their membership for just £39 per year – less than half the cost of an annual Amazon Prime membership. Really, if you’re a student, this is a no-brainer for me, and a really great deal.
For the younger generation, from Wednesday, 23rd August 2017, Amazon is discounting the price on their Amazon Fire Kids Edition Tablets for a limited time.
- Fire 7 Kids Edition Tablet will be available for £79.99 (usual RRP: £99.99 – saving £20)
- Fire HD 8 Kids Edition Tablet will be available for £99.99 (usual RRP: £129.99 – saving £30)
If you’ve not tried the Amazon tablet yet, they really are a great device, and I love the Kids Edition. Built from the ground up for your rambunctious little scamps, the award-winning Fire Kids Edition Tablets come with a year of Amazon Fire for Kids Unlimited, a kid-proof case, and a 2-year worry-free guarantee… That means if anything (and they mean anything!) happens to the device, just send it back to Amazon and they will send you a new one – no questions asked! Also great for the accident prone parent!
It’s a great educational and entertainment tool for kids, the tablets also offer best-in-class parental controls that allow parents to manage usage limits, content access and educational goals, while entertaining children within a safe kid-friendly environment.
