Don't Buy If You Can Share Prime Benefits
Amazon Prime for students is pretty affordable, but if your parents can share Amazon Prime with you as one of the adult household members, you can save $60 a year on Amazon Prime.
The biggest catch to this is that you need to share the same payment methods, so you may need to double check the payment methods before you check out.
With Amazon Prime Household sharing you can share with one adult in the house and with a larger number of teens. This might be enough for you to avoid getting your own membership.
If you have a Amazon Prime student membership, you cannot share it with anyone.
