Yes, it's summer, but Amazon is launching a new way to help you ease back into the next school season with exclusive deals for Prime Student subscribers.

Not only are we weeks away from the start of Amazon Prime Day 2019, but we're also in the early stages of the back-to-school season.

Yes, even though many students are still in school, back-to-school season usually kicks off mid-to-late June. For that reason, Amazon recently launched an Off to College store with deals on all things dorm- and college-related.

Naturally, it helps if you have a Prime Student account. A Prime Student account gives you many of the same perks that a traditional Prime membership includes, but at half the cost. Moreover, students get a free 6-month trial membership instead of just 30 days. After your 6-month trial is up, students just pay $59/year for Prime Student.

Amazon regularly offers exclusive deals for its Prime Student members. In the past, it's taken $15 off orders of $40 or more and even offered its current-gen Echo Dot for as little as $5.

So far, the best deal we see in Amazon's Off to College store is 60% off on Logitech devices. (This sale is actually available to everyone and not just Prime Student members). However, Amazon has teased some upcoming deals for the summer. They include:

We expect the hub to offer better deals as the summer progresses and as back-to-school sales take off.
