Let’s be honest, the “broken college kid” stereotype has hit an all-time low; money is tight for everyone right now. However, just because you’re running out of funds doesn’t mean you have to say no to fun. To have fun on a budget, consider taking advantage of these great student discounts offered by entertainment services.
Spotify is saving us students the deal of a lifetime—Spotify, Hulu, and SHOWTIME, all for the low price of $4.99. Wait, the deal gets even better… students also get a one-month free trial before the paid subscription kicks in. Spotify Premium Student lets college students stream music, podcasts, movies and shows with the same subscription. On Spotify, students can stream ad-free music on demand, stream and download music and podcasts, and create playlists. Hulu and SHOWTIME offer hours of entertaining shows and movies, including originals. With this bundled deal, you’ll never be bored!
If purchased separately, a month of all three streaming services would add up to $27.97. Spotify Premium Student provides a huge savings of almost $23 per month. To get this incredible student discount, click here.
If you want access to Hulu but don’t want Spotify or SHOWTIME, there’s still an option for you! The regular monthly price for a Hulu subscription is $6.99 per month, but students can purchase a Hulu subscription for $1.99 per month. $1.99 a month is a steal for the amount of content Hulu has to offer. Hulu features a diverse catalog of content to choose from. Subscribers can enjoy old favorites like The Simpsons AND Frasieror discover exclusive Hulu shows like The Handmaid’s Tale AND American horror story. You can purchase a Hulu student subscription here
Tired of annoying ads on YouTube videos? YouTube Premium could be for you! YouTube Premium allows subscribers to access YouTube and YouTube Music, ad-free. College students can purchase a YouTube Premium student subscription to gain access to content on both YouTube and YouTube Music without ads and Wi-Fi (so when campus internet goes down, you’re covered)! YouTube Premium can be accessed on computers, mobile devices and select TVs. The YouTube Premium student subscription includes a one-month free trial and then costs $6.99 per month after the trial ends. A standard, non-student subscription costs $11.99 per month. To sign up for YouTube Premium, click here.
If you like YouTube Music but don’t want the other benefits of YouTube Premium, you can also purchase a YouTube Music-only student discount. YouTube Music’s student subscription includes a one-month free trial and then costs $4.99 per month after the trial ends. The standard, non-student price for a YouTube Music subscription is $9.99 per month. To sign up for a YouTube Music student subscription, click here.

Disney+ is a streaming service that offers a huge variety of entertainment, featuring movies from our childhood and from the past year. Disney+ offers students a discount on their 12-month membership. A one-year non-student membership to Disney+ is $79.99. College students can get 15% off a 12-month Disney+ membership, making the service $67.99. Disney+ members have access to movies from Disney, Pixar, Marvel and more. A Disney+ membership is a great option for someone who wants to revisit childhood favorites or discover newer Disney content.
The most important thing to note about the Disney+ student discount is that it is not available on disneyplus.com, but rather specific student discount services. You can get a Disney+ student discount through Student Beans or UNiDAYS, which are free-to-use websites and apps that compile thousands of student discounts all in one place. Once you’ve created an account with one of these platforms, search for “Disney+” and select the 15% off offer.
