Wells Fargo has partnered with the Prime subscription service specifically for students. Students with the service will be offered a 0.5 percent discount on their interest rates for private Wells Fargo loans.

Wells Fargo said in a press release, "We are focused on ... meeting our customers where they are – and increasingly that is in the digital space."

And it could also be beneficial for Amazon, since the discount could increase Prime Student subscriptions. Students with an eligible .edu email address can get six months of the service for free, and then if they continue the streaming/shipping service, they can get a discounted rate after that.

The Wall Street Journal reports the discount will also be available to those who want to refinance their loans.
