A unique Kindle Paperwhite bundle, celebrating the launch of The Hunger Games prequel, comes with a free 6-month Kindle Unlimited, great case design, and $20 discount.
The unexpected prequel to the Hunger Games trilogy, The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes, was released three days ago and it is already the #2 bestseller in the Kindle Store.
Many readers are excited to re-enter the Panem, starting right at the beginning. The new book opens with a young Coriolanus Snow preparing to mentor the underdog tribute during the reaping for the 10th annual Hunger Games.
There is one thing I don’t like about the latest novel from Suzanne Collins – its price. You will have to pay $17.99 for the Kindle version, compared to $7.99 for each of the earlier books.
And here comes something that made me think that the new Kindle Paperwhite Hunger Games bundle would be worth buying by anyone who considers getting the new Kindle in the near future. In fact, in terms of value it’s the best Kindle bundle that was ever released.
The Hunger Games gift pack is already available for pre-order and starts shipping on June 10, 2020. It includes, besides the Paperwhite and an original Amazon power adapter, a unique case resembling the cover art of the books. Even better, you can choose from two variants:
- The original Hunger Games design, with a golden Mockingjay emblem on a graphite background
- The dark green prequel design showing a songbird and snake
The bundle costs $159.97, which is $20 less (
$179.97) than the sum of its parts (plus, there is no way to buy the Hunger Games case cover separately, at least for now). In other words, the saving lets you swallow the cost of The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes itself.
What’s more, the Hunger Games gift pack is $10 cheaper than the regular Kindle Paperwhite Essentials bundle ($169.97) which comes with a standard leather cover.
That’s not all. The biggest benefit of getting the Mockingjay Kindle bundle is the 6-month free Kindle Unlimited plan! It’s the only Kindle bundle to offer it. Yes, you can get the free Kindle Unlimited when you buy a Kindle separately, but the free plan lasts only 3 months.
And you know what? All three earlier books from the Hunger Games trilogy are available in Kindle Unlimited, so that you can re-read them at no extra cost.
Right after you register the Kindle with your Amazon account, you will receive an email with instructions how to redeem the 6-month Kindle Unlimited plan. This offer applies to both non-members and current members. If you don’t want to be charged after six months, make sure to cancel Kindle Unlimited any time before the end of the free period.
Let’s look at all the benefits of the Hunger Games Kindle Paperwhite gift pack. It turns out you can save over $100:
- Save $20 compared to the total worth of the three elements ($130 for the Paperwhite, $20 for the power adapter, and $30 for the case cover)
- Save $60 on the 6-month Kindle Unlimited (the regular price of the subscription is $9.99 per month)
- Save $24 on re-reading earlier books from the series (each Kindle edition costs $7.99 for those who are not subscribed to Kindle Unlimited)
The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes (A Hunger Games Prequel)
It is the morning of the reaping that will kick off the tenth annual Hunger Games. In the Capitol, eighteen-year-old Coriolanus Snow is preparing for his one shot at glory as a mentor in the Games.
The once-mighty house of Snow has fallen on hard times, its fate hanging on the slender chance that Coriolanus will be able to outcharm, outwit, and outmaneuver his fellow students to mentor the winning tribute.
The odds are against him. He’s been given the humiliating assignment of mentoring the female tribute from District 12, the lowest of the low. Their fates are now completely intertwined – every choice Coriolanus makes could lead to favor or failure, triumph or ruin. Inside the arena, it will be a fight to the death.
Outside the arena, Coriolanus starts to feel for his doomed tribute… and must weigh his need to follow the rules against his desire to survive no matter what it takes.
