Amazon Is Offering College Kids $25 Flights Home for the Holidays

If you’ve got a kid in college, tell them to stop wasting time studying for finals and jump on this NOW:  Amazon is offering college students flights home for the holidays for 25 BUCKS.

They have to be a member of Amazon’s “Prime Student” program, and there’s a limited number of tickets each day.  3,000 of them total.

It started yesterday, but they’re offering 1,000 tickets today, and another 1,000 tomorrow.  It works on select routes to all 50 states with departure dates between December 8th and the 25th, and return dates as late as January 14th.

You have to sign into Amazon Prime Student to see the list of flights, and there’s a $500 limit.  If the ticket would normally cost more than that, you pay $25 plus any amount over $500.  So that’s still a $475 savings.

Today’s tickets dropped at 3:00 A.M. Eastern, so they’re probably gone by now.  But you’ve got one more chance tomorrow, again at 3:00 A.M. Eastern.

Once it’s over, all the students who didn’t snag the deal can get a discount code for $25 off a flight, which is . . . less exciting.
