Prime Day 2020 Kindle Unlimited deal lets you save $30 on the six-month plan. But there is other, much better offer to consider – the 60-day free trial.
Amazon has officially launched Prime Day 2020. The two-day shopping event will take place on October 13 and 14, but some deals are available to grab right now.
Just like in former events, one of the early Prime Day deals is for Kindle Unlimited. This year, if you are an Amazon Prime subscriber or sign up to the service any time, you are eligible for a 50% discount on the six-month plan.
The regular price of this membership plan is
$59.94, but you will pay $29.97, if you decide to go for it before or during Prime Day 2020.
Amazon clearly stated in a press release that the deal is addressed to customers who are new to Kindle Unlimited, so if you are both an active Prime and Kindle Unlimited subscriber, you will not be able to get the deal.
Where can I get Prime Day 2020 Kindle Unlimited deal? Amazon has not included this offer on the front page of this year’s event, but you should be able to grab it when you visit the regular Kindle Unlimited sign up page.
To see available & personalized subscription options and deals, you have to be signed in to Amazon with the same credentials you use for Prime membership.
Is Prime Day 2020 Kindle Unlimited deal worth it?
To be frank, we have seen much more attractive Kindle Unlimited deals offered exclusively for Prime subscribers before Prime Day or Black Friday. For instance, last year you could get the 3-month plan for just $0.99.
The 2020 deal lets you save $30 but you have to pay $30 right away.
To conclude, no matter how attractive the 50% price cut means, you have to keep in mind:
- If you haven’t used Kindle Unlimited before, you are eligible for a 30-day free trial. It means that you effectively save $20 not $30, as the monthly subscription fee is $9.99.
- When you sign up for the subscription, your credit card will be immediately charged with the deal price.
- If you want to get this Kindle Unlimited deal but are not a Prime member yet, you will have to start your Prime as well – and it means an extra cost if you don’t cancel Prime during your 30-day free trial.
Is there a better Kindle Unlimited deal?
Yes, there is, and you can get it even if you are not a Prime member.
There is an ongoing deal that gives 2 months of Kindle Unlimited free of charge. It’s like getting a 60-day free trial instead of 30-day. You keep in your pocket $20.
As I said, the deal is available for both Prime members and regular Amazon customers. But the best thing is that it’s valid through March 31, 2021. You can get it any time that suits you, for instance before Christmas.
