11 Problem-Solving Perks From Amazon Prime Student That’ll Help You Score Big In Life *And* On Your Finals

It’s basically like having your own personal assistant.

Hey, you! We know this time of year can be challenging (to say the least). You've got, some would say, TOO much to think about so that's why Amazon Prime Student is here to help make your life a little easier.

It's your saving grace for all things studying-, eating-, streaming-, relaxing-, *and* shopping-related. Sounds too good to be true, right? Wrong. When you sign up for Amazon Prime Student, you can get your paws on some pretty amazing perks — and you also get to try some of them out for FREE, for six whole months. And then after that, it's just $6.49/month, which, if you think about it, is the same price as a fancy coffee order.

Struggling with commitment issues? No sweat. You can cancel anytime.

OK, enough blabbing. We know you're only here for the good stuff. AKA perks, baby. So say hello to your new problem-solvers:

1. A superfast, free delivery service on *all* your essentials. Think: same-day delivery on T.P. and two-hour delivery on fruits and veg (aka brain food). All at the click of a button so you don't have to disrupt your studying groove.

2. A 24/7 study buddy that offers around-the-clock homework help through Course Hero so — hooray — no more scratching your head over tricky math problems. The first month is free and then after that, you'll get a monthly discounted subscription, which includes access to textbooks, practice tests, and tutors!

4. Access to unlimited free delivery from Grubhub+ and exclusive perks that afford you the ability to try new cuisines or, y'know, order late-night za from your trusty, go-to spot. You were really good and cooked *all* week using your groceries delivered through Amazon Fresh, right? So now it's time to kick back with some well-deserved takeout.
