Subscription Services That Are Perfect for Students

Some of these are definitely unexpected.

Published

on

Subscriptions make student lives a little easier by providing accessibility to products and services with the convenience of having everything delivered, no hassle. We’re well aware of the obvious subscriptions for students: Amazon Prime, Ipsy, Netflix, Spotify. But here are a few that you may not have known of:

Blue Bottle Coffee

Coffee is essential for late-night study sessions and getting to that 8AM lecture. That’s why Blue Bottle delivers coffee straight to your doorstep, with a wide range of roasts and blends to choose from for only $8/month plus shipping. Similarly, MixCup offers coffee delivery for Keurig fans who are addicted to their K-Cup pods.

Cengage Unlimited

Textbook-seller Cengage offers a digital database with over 20,000 course materials for one easy fee of $119/semester, or $179/year. This subscription could save hundreds of dollars’ worth of textbook purchases for class, and guarantees that you’ll never have to carry a backpack that weighs more than 15 pounds again. Cengage Unlimited also has built-in study tools, including MindTap and WebAssign, that are included as part of the subscription.

TheSkimm

Digital news platform TheSkimm writes a daily morning newsletter that condenses current events for students on the run. But you know who else does that? Us. Subscribe here for our daily Morning Scoop It’s also free!

Calm Box

School can be very stressful, and Calm Box offers a box full of relaxing items such as candles, motivational posters, and tea for $35/month. It’s a small price to pay for calming your nerves, which can also help you perform better academically.
