If you’re an Amazon Prime Student member, Amazon is running a pretty solid Back to School deal right now on Echo devices that allows you to get 40% off a device for your dorm room.
The deal covers the Echo Plus, Echo Show 5, and the Echo Spot. You can only get the deal on one device, so choose wisely. You also have to enter a promo code at checkout to actually get the savings, as Android Central reports.
Here are the promo codes as well as what you’ll end up paying for each. Worth noting: The Echo 5 and Echo Plus also on sale right now, so even if you don’t have a student account you can score a bit of a deal without that promo code.
Echo Show 5 ($53.99) – SHOWFIVE40
Echo Spot ($77.99) – SPOT 40
Echo Plus ($89.99) – PLUS40
All three are a bit more than the $30 you’ll pay for an Echo Dot; however, they make owning a nicer version of an Alexa device a lot more reachable.
If you’re a student and you’re not a member of Amazon Prime Student, that’s also worth a look. The service essentially halves the cost of a Prime membership for verified students, taking the price from $12.99 a month to $6.49 a month.
Beyond having the opportunity for deals like this one on Echo devices, a Prime Student membership will also allow you to get access to Amazon Music Unlimited for an additional $.99 a month rather than paying full price.(Source)
