A Guide to Subscription Services for Students

Decades ago, many home coffee tables and bedside stands sported glossy-covered magazines. People usually ordered these yearly, received a renewal notice in the mail, wrote and mailed a check to the publishing company, and then continued receiving their publications. Some older adults still do this today.

How times have changed. Now, there are subscription services for just about anything – food, razor blades, beauty products, games, movies, clothing, and more. And a hugely growing population of subscribers are students. They love the convenience. They can make a subscription online, arrange for automatic online payments, and receive their products or services immediately.

If you are a student, you probably know the most popular subscriptions within your peer group – Spotify, Netflix, HelloFresh, Birchbox, Stitch Fix, Hulu, Amazon Prime, and such.
