For the first time, StudentUniverse is offering Prime Student members a limited number of $25 flights to and from home for the holidays, just in time to celebrate the season with family and friends. This offer is an exciting addition to the incredible savings, convenience, and entertainment Prime Student members can access year-round.
What new data reveals about college students’ shopping and spending habits. Spoiler alert: Food, entertainment, and travel are at the top of their list!
Prime Student members can visit the Prime Student x StudentUniverse page at 6 a.m. PST on December 5 to book tickets on select domestic flights (while supplies last) for travel between mid-December and early January for just $25. 3,000 $25 flight tickets will be available during this promotion—with 1,000 tickets dropping each day, starting at 6 a.m. PST on December 5 and midnight PST on December 6 and 7.
Once those 3,000 tickets are claimed, StudentUniverse will run a trailing promotional offer, giving Prime Student members $25 off flights with a promotional code. Terms and conditions apply.
“As a mom to a first-year college student, I am excited to have my son home for the holidays,” said Carmen Nestares, vice president of U.S. Prime and Marketing Tech at Amazon. “And as travel costs continue to rise, we’re happy to help make flying more affordable for Prime Students who want to spend this important time with family and friends. It’s another way to deliver incredible savings, value, and convenience to our Prime Student members each year.”
Everything you get with Prime Student, one of Amazon’s discounted Prime memberships, from books and music to travel, Amazon offers a slew of special perks for students.
Traveling during the holidays when prices surge can be tough, especially for college students on a budget. In fact, according to a 2023 StudentUniverse survey, holiday travel is often a source of financial stress, with 76% of full-time students aged 18-25 citing financial costs as their greatest travel concern. Still, many are prioritizing travel home. In a recent survey, Prime Student discovered that 79% of college students are saving up for travel, with 43% prioritizing a trip home to see family or friends.
That’s why Prime Student and StudentUniverse wanted to help by offering members discounted flights during the holiday season this year.
“At StudentUniverse, we help students travel for less,” said Steven de Blois, CEO StudentUniverse. “Our trusted partnership with Amazon has allowed us to help thousands of Prime Student members access affordable flights and hotels worldwide. This partnership has now culminated into this unforgettable moment during which we hope to spread some cheer by helping young people across the country travel home for holidays affordably.”
