Hulu, Adobe, and more: All the services offering student discounts
There’s so much to enjoy about your college days: new friends, wild parties, cutting-edge education, crippling student debt . . . ah, maybe not that last one. Thankfully, many businesses are happy to lend college students a financial hand, so to speak. Hulu, for example, offers a student discount – because streaming entertainment is a must in college these days.
You can unlock plenty of offers like the Hulu student discount by using the power of your “.edu” email account. Are you ready to save some money?
Before we get to the Hulu student discount, let’s check out one of its competitors. Of course, streaming movies & TV shows is only part of what Amazon Prime offers. The service also gives you free two-day shipping, unlimited photo storage and sweet Prime-exclusive deals on their site.
The college student variant of Amazon Prime is aptly named Amazon Prime Student and costs $6.49 a month (or $59 a year if you want to take care of the annual payment all at once). That’s basically half the standard price. Additionally, you get the first six months for free because Amazon really wants you to get hooked.
Apple offers a handful of seasonal discount options for students throughout the year. Their student discount for Apple Music, however, stands all year long and gives you all the music you can handle for just half the price of a regular subscription. That’s $4.99 a month instead of $9.99.
To get the student discount on Apple Music, sign up for the service using your .edu email address. Then sit back and enjoy the latest Billie Eilish tunes!
Even if you love reading, you have to admit it’s the kind of activity that doesn’t really allow for much multitasking – and multitasking is the only way to get everything done these days. But what if somebody reads to you while you’re taking care of chores? That’s the beauty of audiobooks, and Audible has an extensive online library full of pretty much every book you can think of.
Sign up for Audible as a college student and pay only $9.95 a month (saving 30% of the regular price) and get a $10 Amazon.com credit.
Hulu, Spotify, and Showtime
Talk about a triple threat. There is a student discount bundle that gives you almost too much entertainment for only $4.99 a month. The way to achieve this streaming nirvana is to sign up through Spotify as a student. Not only do you get a free month of Spotify, Hulu, and Showtime, but then you’ll keep all three services at the discounted price of $4.99 a month until you decide you’ve had enough.
Now, if that triumvirate of fun sounds too dangerous & distracting for you, Hulu also has a standalone student discount. $1.99 a month, guys. That’s the price of, what, two tacos at Jack in the Box?
The New York Times
It’s important to balance your entertainment consumption with harsh reminders of what’s going on in the outside world. You won’t be in college forever, and you need to be aware of what’s waiting for you in adulthood. Reading newspapers is a good way to do that (certainly better than glancing at headlines on social media) and The New York Times actually offers a pretty good student discount.
The standard price for a monthly subscription to The New York Times is $3.75 a week. Students get the first four weeks for free and then only pay $1 a week. One dollar! That’s less than a spicy chicken sandwich at McDonald’s!
Adobe Creative Cloud
Reading books, watching movies, and listening to music are great ways to relax. But what if you want to make something? That’s where you need something like the Adobe Creative Cloud, which gives you access to software like Illustrator, Photoshop, and After Effects. Everything you need to tinker with images & video.
Adobe offers a 60% discount on its full suite for students. Instead of paying $52.99 a month, you’ll only have to pay $19.99 a month, as long as you use your .edu address when you make your purchase.
