Methods for importing GeoJSON feature collection into ArcMap?

I found my method in ArcMap's Data Interoperability tools. I had to install the extension, but then everything worked flawlessly, allowing me to import everything within whatever folder I specified with the extension".json".

It would be great to have another solution that didn't rely on the expensive extension that is only available to me under a 1-year student trial period.

Use qgis, , to connect to the geojson, right click on the layer, save as, and save it as a shape file. Then you can work with it in ArcGIS Desktop. Alternatively, to work in batch mode, you can use the OSGeo4W shell that is installed with the standalone qgis installation to access the gdal/ogr toolkit to use command line ogr to convert geojson to a shape file as described at GeoJson to ESRI Shapefile using ogr2ogr .
