Book lovers’ guide to Prime Day 2020 deals available not only for subscribers

Prime Day 2020 - best Kindle book audiobook deals

Amazon’s dedicated Prime Day 2020 deals are much more attractive than a year ago. Plus, there are other deals even non-members can grab.

Prime Day 2020 is on October 13 and 14, but the event’s home page is already available with new deals featured every day. Just like in previous years, we expect thousands of exclusive offers to become available in two final days.

How many of them would be interesting for book lovers? Save time for reading books. We’ve prepared a stress-free list of deals so that you don’t have to dive (and get drowned) in the ocean of offers – with most of them not even meeting your needs.

A few days ago, Amazon announced in Prime Day 2020 highlights that there would be one Kindle model on sale, one Kindle Unlimited deal for new subscribers, and one Audible deal on the Premium Plus plan. But the new, surprisingly attractive, Kindle deals have just been revealed – including the deepest price cut on the top Kindle Oasis model!

Even better, there are hundreds of other deals on Amazon right now, and they are available also for non subscribers. Why get Prime if you can grab a good book-related deal without it?

The updated list is simplified to the bones. Only the best deals are listed, across a few categories: print books, Kindle devices and services, book and audiobook subscriptions, and gift ideas.

Kindle Print Audible Gifts

We have gone through endless pages of search results to find offers and deals not only for Prime subscribers but all Amazon customers. Why subscribe to Prime if you can get a similar deal on another product from the same category?

Why shop during Prime Day and not Black Friday?

The reason to start looking earlier for Christmas gifts is simple. Facing the second wave of coronavirus, shipping dates would become highly unpredictable. It may turn out that goods purchased during Black Friday or Cyber Monday would not arrive before Christmas – especially that many more users would shop in online stores.

The list is developing. Make sure to bookmark it in your web browser and come back later.
