If you’re a student you know all too well that every penny counts, and Amazon just made it a whole lot easier to save up those pennies. Beginning immediately, Amazon dropped the already discounted monthly cost of its discounted Amazon Prime subscription for students — and students are still eligible for a free 6-month trial!

All you have to do is head over to this page on the Amazon site and sign up with your EDU email address, and you’ll be able to start your free 6-month Amazon Prime trial. Once the 6-month period ends, you’ll pay just $5.49 per month for Prime as a student. That’s a huge discount compared to the $10.99 per month or the $99 per year the rest of us have to pay…

Here are some of the many Prime benefits listed on Amazon’s website:
