Bath University student scoops £3,000 win from Amazon

Hannah Blofield, a third year engineering student at Bath University, has been announced as one of six lucky winners of the Amazon Student prize fund, receiving £3,000 to help her through the new academic year.

Amazon Student is a membership programme created for higher education students in the UK. The prize fund aims to help towards the cost of academic books, sports equipment, travel, and the latest in electronics and technology.

Miss Blofield said: “When I found out I had won I couldn’t quite believe it, my friends had to help me come to terms with being a winner. When I finish university I’m planning to go travelling around Australia and New Zealand to visit friends and family, so I will save a lot of my winnings for that. Before then, I’m going to treat myself to a pamper day and a new winter wardrobe, to help ease the stress of my final year at university.

“Amazon Student has been a bit of a saviour for me this term. I find the next day delivery useful for the books I need for my studies, especially if I’ve left work until the last minute, which I’m sometimes guilty of, and need something delivered quickly.”

Amazon Student helps students save time and money on their shopping by offering six months of unlimited free one-day delivery on over seven million eligible items.

At the end of the six-month free trial, students can convert to a discounted Amazon Prime membership for just £39 per year, less than half the standard cost of Amazon Prime.

Students who pay for a discounted Prime membership will also receive access to more than 15,000 popular movies and TV episodes through Prime Instant Video and access to 500,000 Kindle books to borrow from the Kindle owners lending library.
