Amazon Introduces New Amazon Student Mobile App

Posted Aug 15, 2011

Amazon just launched a new iPhone app called Amazon Student, which helps college students price check textbooks, keep wish lists of supplies and trade used textbooks and other wares. TechCrunch reports that the app has a barcode scanner just like Amazon’s main app, which helps with the price checks. The Trade-in feature is somewhat part of Amazon’s Textbook Buyback program, but allows students to trade books, DVDs and more for gift cards.

Amazon Student also gives students 6 free months of Amazon Prime’s free two-day shipping on any order.
