Amazon Student Puts Deals at Your Fingertips

As a college student you are all too cognizant of the costs associated with obtaining a higher education, including tuition, books, and living expenses, amongst other things. And if you’re like most students, any scholarships, grants, financial aid, and other student loans you receive are barely enough to cover the bills. If you’re lucky your parents are willing and able to help you foot the bill, but many college students also have to take on a part-time job in order to cover extras. Don’t you wish there was an application for your smartphone that could help you to find ways to cut back on the items you use every day? Well, you’re in luck. As it turns out, the Amazon Student mobile app for the iPhone and Android devices is designed specifically to help students such as yourself to find the best deals on textbooks and any other items they may want to purchase. And the fact that it’s free to download and easy to use should help to convince you to download it post haste.

As a matter of fact, you can start off by using this app to trade in goods and earn some credit on Amazon, putting you ahead of the game right from the get-go. And it’s easier than you might think to engineer a trade. First you’ll have to compile the goods you’d like to send to Amazon for resale. Thanks to a barcode scanner, you can simply take snapshots of barcodes on your textbooks and other media (movies, video games, etc.) in order to add them to your list and find their trade-in value. You can also use the search functionality to find and enter items that no longer have a barcode attached, such as electronics and even clothing and accessories in some cases. Amazon won’t take everything you might like to sell, but they may accept a lot of it, so it’s certainly worth a try if you’re just going to donate or ditch the items anyway.

After that you’ll be given a packing slip and shipping label to print out, which you’ll add to the box of goods you’re trading in – Amazon pays for the shipping. Once Amazon has received your box they will credit your account or provide you with a gift card so that you can start shopping. This brings us to the next feature offered by this app: buying. Amazon Student not only helps you to find the items you need for school (and life in general) but it also takes you straight to the best prices on any items you scan or search. So if you’ve gotten your book list for the semester, simply head to the campus bookstore and start scanning in barcodes, finding the best prices via Amazon, and putting together your order.

With the money from your trade-ins you can pay for your order (or at least a portion of it) and for the first six months following download you can use free two-day shipping (although you’ll have to sign up for Amazon Prime to continue getting this perk). And of course, you can also put together a wish list or cart for easy reference later on, so that items are ready and waiting when you get more money in your account. Whether you’re angling forĀ Vermont’s LLM degree or you’re majoring in video game design in California, you need all the help you can get when it comes to finance. Hey, the stereotype of the starving college student didn’t come from nowhere. Luckily, Amazon Student can help. And any freebie that saves you money on books and sundries is one that you should download a.s.a.p.
