Amazon just made Prime even cheaper for students, and you still get 6 months free

Amazon Prime Student Discount

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:

New Fios deal gets you Gigabit internet, TV, phone and more for less than you pay for cable internet alone

Fios TV Online

This is a sponsored article and all content and opinions expressed within are independent of editorial.

Why are so many people cutting the cord these days? It’s not a trick question, the answer is obvious: they want to save money. Cable companies’ quest for profits got completely out of hand over the years, and service costs skyrocketed as a result. For a while, there was nothing anyone could do — if you wanted internet and TV service, you had to pay the price. Now that there are alternatives, however, people are seeking them out and taking advantage of them.

Of course, using any of the lower-cost streaming services out there means you still have to pay for internet, and standalone cable internet is quite expensive if you want decent data speeds. Or heaven forbid you want the fastest option your cable company offers… get ready to spend an arm and a leg each month.

What if we told you that there’s a way to get internet service that’s probably three or four times faster than your current service along with a live TV and home phone bundle, all for less than you’re paying now? What if we told you that you can also get 2 years of HBO or 2 years of multi-room DVR service as well at no extra charge. Well, it just so happens that there’s a new Fios deal that just went live, and it’s exactly what you’ve been dreaming of.

For $79.99 per month — which is less than you’ll pay for internet alone for your cable company’s fastest plan — you get Fios Gigabit service (data speeds up to 940/880 Mbps) as well as a custom TV package and home phone service. On top of that, you can choose either 2 years of free HBO or 2 years of free multi-room DVR service, and you get up to $500 to pay off your current cable contract if you have one!

Here’s a breakdown, just to ensure that you didn’t miss anything:

  • Download speeds up to 940Mbps
  • Upload speeds up to 880Mbps
  • Custom TV package (choose from seven channel bundles)
  • Phone service
  • HBO free for 2 years or multi-room DVR service free for 2 years
  • Credit of up to $500 to get out of your contract

This new deal went live on Sunday, September 17th, and it’s only available for a limited time. Head over to the Fios website to learn more and sign up.

A peek behind the curtain as IBM Watson Media flexes its AI muscle at the US Open

US Open Tennis Results

Excitement abounds on and off the court at this year's US Open, where fans enjoyed an all-American women's semifinal round on Thursday evening for the first time in 36 years. Advancing to the finals are Madison Keys and Sloane Stephens, who becomes just the fourth unseeded woman in US Open history to reach the finals. The two will compete on Saturday for a record $3.7 million prize, part of the Open's $50 million purse, the tournament's highest ever payout. Rafa is racing toward his sixteenth Grand Slam singles title on the men's side, where fan-favorite Juan Martín del Potro stands in his way in Friday night's semi. Delpo, fresh from upsetting Roger Federer in Wednesday's quarter-final match, will look to topple both Federer and Nadal in the same tournament for the first time since the 2009 US Open, where he won his first and only Grand Slam title.

But there are also big things happening behind the scenes at the Open this year, and BGR was invited by IBM earlier this week to take a peek behind the curtain.

Amazon Prime members will get special discounts at Whole Foods

Amazon Prime Whole Foods Discount

Whole Foods, purveyor of kale and other upper middle-class household staples, has been acquired by Amazon, purveyor of everything that can possibly be purveyed. The $14 billion deal has been approved by regulators and will close on Monday. The merger was initially seen by some as an unholy union by some, but it's perfectly in line with Amazon's mission to sell everything it possibly can to everyone it possibly can. Of course, Amazon also has another mission, and that's to get as many people as possible to sign up for Amazon Prime. With its Whole Foods acquisition, it looks like Amazon is about to enjoy a flood of new Prime members.

What you might not know, however, is that you can purchase your own compatible modem for next to nothing, and that monthly fee with vanish as soon as you return your leased modem to your cable provider.
