Activating Kindle Unlimited on Kindle Paperwhite 4 2018

Register your Kindle Paperwhite 4 (2018) before January 31, 2019, and you will receive the link to redeem the 6-month free Kindle Unlimited plan / Screenshot: Amazon

The 2018 Kindle Paperwhite 4 comes with six months of free Kindle Unlimited. You can redeem the offer even if you’re already subscribed.

One of the things avid readers love about the 4th-generation Kindle Paperwhite is that if you buy it by the end of January 2019, you can enjoy Kindle Unlimited digital subscription for six months without paying a penny for it.

The best thing about this limited time offer is that not only new but also current Kindle Unlimited subscribers can take advantage of the deal.

After redeeming the offer, the subscribers will simply not be charged for six months. Automatic renewals will be temporarily suspended for the duration of the promotional period.

If you are subscribed to one of Kindle Unlimited pre-paid plans (no matter whether it’s 6, 12, or 24-month subscription), the free plan will start when your current prepaid plan ends.

Adding Kindle Unlimited to your Kindle Paperwhite 4 is extremely simple.
