At the end of June, Amazon announced the details of the upcoming Prime Day 2017 – a yearly shopping event addressed exclusively to members of Prime multi-benefit subscription.
Prime Day 2017 will be held this year on Tuesday, June 11, but some of the announced deals are already running. One of them is a Kindle Unlimited promotion.
Just like a year ago, Amazon Prime members can save between 25% and 40% on Kindle Unlimited prepaid plans. The longer subscription plan you choose the more you save:
- 6 months – $44.95
$59.94– save 25%,
- 12 months – $80.32
$119.88– save 33%,
- 24 months – $143.85
$239.76– save 40%.
There are a few things to keep in mind when you decide to benefit from a subscription.
First of all, there is no free trial. If you purchase Kindle Unlimited via the promotional page, your credit card will be immediately charged for the entire period. For instance, if you pick up the 12-month plan, and would like to stop Kindle Unlimited after 2 months, you won’t get back the money for the remaining 10 months.
Secondly, as this promotion is addressed exclusively to Prime members, you have to subscribe to Prime first in order to be eligible to get the Kindle Unlimited deal.
The last thing is that if you are a current Kindle Unlimited monthly subscriber (and an Amazon Prime member, obviously), you can redeem this offer and automatic renewals will be temporarily suspended for the duration of the prepaid subscription you’ve picked.
Before you decide to buy the prepaid Kindle Unlimited subscription, take a look at Prime Reading. It’s a part of Amazon Prime membership and it’s addressed to users who like to read – maybe you don’t need Kindle Unlimited at all.
Amazon Prime Reading gives unlimited access to a rotating selection of hot Kindle ebooks, popular magazines, children’s books, comics, and short reads.
The rotating list of Prime Reading eligible titles includes some 1,000 publications, and it’s updated every month – not only with current issues of popular magazines but also new digital books.
