Going to college may not be cheap, but now you can at least skim a few bucks off your Amazon Prime subscription.

For college students not willing to commit to a full year of Amazon Prime, the company announced Wednesday a new $5.49 monthly payment option called Amazon Prime Student.

Current college attendees with a “.edu” email address can sign up to Prime Student for a maximum of four years. They can also take advantage of a six-month free trial before the monthly payments kick in.

On top of the usual perks of a Prime membership — including free two-day shipping and access to Prime Video’s streamable movies and TV shows — the company says Prime Students will get access to special deals, or “coupons,” through their subscription.

The “college essentials,” most of which are personal hygiene products, appear to be picked with dorm room cohabitation in mind: Prime students can click the coupons to save a few dollars off air fresheners, toiletries and nutrition bars.

The company also announced the addition of two new pickup locations in Chicago, bringing its nationwide total to 29.

A full year of Amazon Prime Student retains its $49 price tag, which is still roughly half the price of a standard Prime account. There is no annual commitment required for monthly Prime Student subscriptions.

About Catiana Saillant

As a child, I’ve always loved music. From different genres such as Hip-Hop, R&B and Pop. Music allows you to be creative and express yourself the way that you please to. I’ve sought music to be a place where you can be YOU. You can dance, cry, laugh and do all kinds of crazy things to music. That is what makes me so passionate about what I do! My ultimate goal is to build a mainstream media platform that represents and supports culture such as paintings, music, film and provide empowering media coverage to my viewers.
