Heads up, e-book readers and audio-book listeners: Prepaid Kindle Unlimited subscriptions are up to 40 percent off today.
Amazon is offering this deep discount to Amazon Prime subscribers for the second annual Prime Day sale on Tuesday, July 12.
If you’re not a Prime member, don’t worry: You can sign up for a free Prime trial. Then, cancel the subscription after Prime Day if you don’t want to be charged for the subscription.
Now, back to the Kindle Unlimited deal. A Kindle Unlimited subscription buys you unlimited reading of more than 1 million e-books and a smaller number of audio books on any device for however many months you choose. The current deal has three options:
- Six-month subscription: $44.95 instead of $59.94 — 25 percent off
- 12-month subscription: $80.32 instead of $119.88 — 33 percent off
- 24-month subscription: $143.86 instead of $239.76 — 40 percent off
The discount will be applied after you add a subscription to your card.
Through a Kindle Unlimited subscription, more than 1 million Kindle books are available for reading, and thousands of them come with the free professionally narrated Audible audiobook.
Note that you don’t need a Kindle to take advantage of this deal. As Amazon explains it:
With our free Kindle Reading apps, you can read on any device with the Kindle app installed.
The Kindle apps are free for Android, Apple iOS and Windows mobile devices, among others.
Of course, if you are in the market for an e-reader, Amazon is also offering deals on Kindle e-readers for Prime Day.
