Kindle and Audible deals - December 2019

Deep deals on over 1,000 Kindle ebooks, Kindle Unlimited and Audible subscription plans – they are confirmed to run on Amazon all month long.

Some people don’t want to rush or don’t find it exciting to hunt for Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals. Buying things in a hurry is a guarantee you will have something you don’t need.

On the other hand, you may feel guilty that you have missed some great deals, especially if you are a Kindle or Audible user – and you know the deals were highly attractive (as always on Amazon).

And there are still a few gifts you have to buy before Christmas, so you will have to explore Amazon for gift ideas sooner or later.

Keep calm, not all the deals are gone. Just the opposite – some offers are confirmed to be active till the end of December, so you need enough time to think carefully whether they are something you really need.

Below, you will find select deals on Kindle ebooks, Kindle Unlimited and Audible subscriptions, together with deal status, and expiration date.

Kindle and Audible Christmas 2019 deals

Status: Active through December 31, 2019

Gifting Kindle Unlimited is back in the Amazon store, and it’s one of the best gift ideas for Kindle users this holiday season.

Three subscriptions are available, as usual, but you will immediately notice this: no such huge deal was ever offered on the 6-month plan. You can now save as much as 50%! Instead of $59.94, you will pay $29.97.

In other words, you pay for three months of the membership and you get (or, I should rather say “the gift recipient”) three more free of charge. It sounds like a great idea to keep the subscription until the Prime Day 2020 Kindle Unlimited deal is available.

The deal is active until the end of December, so it’s not only a great idea for a Christmas gift, but you can also buy it for yourself just after Christmas. It sounds like you could keep the subscription until the Prime Day 2020 Kindle Unlimited deal becomes available.

In short: the prices on 12 and 24-month plans are the same as before, but the deal on the 6-month subscription is shockingly low. But again, don’t rush, you have a lot of time.

Status: Valid through December 31, 2019

Are you an audiobook fan? Do you plan to reactivate or prolong your Audible membership? You can save as much as 53% if you grab this deal by the end of December.

Here is what you get: for first three months you pay for Audible membership $6.95 per month instead of $14.95. It means that you will save $32 in total.

After three months, you will pay the regular fee of $14.95 per month unless you cancel the subscription and wait for another Audible deal.

A great thing about Audible subscription is that, opposite to Kindle Unlimited, you own the titles you get. When your membership ends, all audiobooks remain in your account. And each month, you can grab one full-length audiobook and two shorter Audible Originals.

Black Friday price cuts on Kindle devices were roughly the same as in recent years (such is $30 off the entry-level model), so you may think you’ve missed the chance once and for good.

Best Kindle book deals - December 2019

Status: Valid through December 31, 2019

Amazon claims the Cyber Monday 2019 Kindle deal is the biggest this year, with over 350 titles. Sure, some books are top read, but it really depends on which genre and author you like.

There is, however, another great source of discounted Kindle books – Monthly Kindle Deals that include titles priced between $0.99 and $3.99.

Kindle Monthly deals are perfect for people who don’t want to hurry, who want to make reasonable, well-justified decisions – and need some more time than a few hours.

From our long experience, we can say that the December list of Kindle Monthly Deals is the best in the entire year. It includes the largest number of books (over 1,000 versus 300-500 in other months), and the selected titles are much more attractive.

Here are a few recommendations:

  • The Murmur of Bees by Sofía Segovia – one of the best translated books this year. It’s a beguiling story of a mysterious child with the power to change a family’s history in a country on the verge of revolution. Deal price: $1.99.
  • Butterfly in Frost by Sylvia Day – a hotly anticipated new novel and a brilliant return of Sylvia Day, the bestselling author of the Crossfire series. Deal price: $1.99.
  • The Overdue Life of Amy Byler by Kelly Harms – Goodreads Choice Award finalist and Washington Post bestselling laugh-out-loud funny novel about underappreciated single mom who needs a break. Deal price: $1.99.
  • What the Wind Knows by Amy Harmon – a page-turning love story set in Ireland on the edge of the Anglo-Irish War in 1921. Deal price: $1.99.

On the list of monthly Kindle deals, you will find not only translated literature or romance, but also thrillers, fantasy, biographies as well as teen fiction and self-help guides.

You can gift Prime to another Amazon customer, and save 10% on the selected plan. Two plans are available:

  • 3 months – a price for you is $35 instead of $39,
  • 12 months – the deal price is set at $107, compared to a regular $119.

Amazon claims that this Prime deal is valid “while promotional supplies last,” which in case of a digital subscription (where the absence of a physical product is not possible) means Amazon reserves the right to end the deal any time.

Gifting Audible membership plans lets you save more money than gifting single audiobooks / Image: Amazon

Status: Ongoing offer, no end date revealed

If there is a book lover among your closest relatives, gifting an audiobook is one of the best gift ideas at hand.

Gifting a $30 audiobook that’s on every recommendation list you come across is already a great gift idea. The only question is: will the gift recipient like it?

There is a better idea. Instead of giving a single audiobook, gift a pre-paid Audible membership.

Go to Audible Gift Membership Center on Amazon and select the pre-paid plan you want to gift. You can choose from four plans: 1, 3, 6, and 12-month.

The 3-month plan is the most popular option. For $45 the member will get 3 full-length audiobooks and 6 Audible Originals.
