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.
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.
