Amazon has already revealed details of Prime Day 2017. This yearly shopping event will be held on July 11th, but some deals are already running.
All that you need to have to take advantage is a valid Prime membership. Don’t have it yet? No problem. You can join Prime right now, and you’ll instantly access all Prime-exclusive deals.
Prime deals are offered across multiple categories. Obviously, we focus on everything that is related to digital reading. We’ve already covered Prime Day 2017 deal for Kindle Unlimited, in which you can save up to 40% on this digital subscription. The level of savings depends on the plan you choose.
The other digital subscription that’s offered at a reduced fee for Prime Day 2017 is Audible.
New Audible subscribers (those who are already Amazon Prime members) can get 40% off the first 6 months of the audiobook subscription. Thanks to that, you’ll pay $8.95 each month instead of
$14.95 for the Gold plan.
When you join Audible via this Prime Day deal, you’ll get the same benefits as regular Gold members: one audio credit per month, unlimited listening to Audible Channels, offline listening with premium quality and no ads, exclusive member-only savings.
After 6 months, if you don’t cancel the subscription, Audible will start charging the regular price of $14.95.
Audible offers over 180,000 titles in several categories, including mystery, fantasy, nonfiction, or history books. You can also have access to premium podcasts and original comedy.
You can listen to Audible audiobooks on free apps available for your smartphone or tablet (iPhone, Android, Windows Phone) and Amazon devices: Kindle e-reader, Fire tablet, and Alexa voice assistant.
Speaking of Amazon devices. If you are subscribed to both Prime and Audible, you can take part in sweepstakes to get a chance to win an Amazon Echo voice assistant. There are 100 Echo devices waiting for the participants.
You can browse the entire Audible catalog on Amazon before joining in. As you’ll see, the audiobooks can be also purchased without the Audible subscription.
You are interested in audiobooks but don’t want to subscribe to Prime to be eligible for a deal? You can join Audible separately and test it for 30 days – free of charge. You’ll get two free audiobooks for a start and an access to over 180,000 titles. If you don’t like the service, you can cancel it anytime. If you do it during the free trial, your credit card won’t be charged.
