Amazon Prime Day kicks off in just two weeks, but you can already make some killer savings. As well as early device sales, we're seeing Amazon offer Prime members some enticing promotions across its broad array of services.
While you might associate Amazon Prime with the speedy shipping it grants you across millions of products, it's more than just an expedited delivery service with streaming video and music, books and audiobooks, photo storage, and much more either included with your subscription or available at a discounted rate for Prime members. The run up to Amazon Prime Day is the best time to shop these services as the company begins offering further discounts for its Prime subscribers.
Amazon Kindle Unlimited
Take this Kindle Unlimited promotion. Right now, Amazon Prime members can get three months of the service absolutely free of charge. Kindle Unlimited gives you access to over a million titles, spanning from technical documents to cookbooks to fantasy novels to nonfiction. Need a self-help book? Want to re-read Harry Potter for the seventeenth time? It's all there, and it's all free with your membership. If you're yet to try Kindle Unlimited, this three-month free trial is the perfect opportunity. On the other hand, you could jump right into a longer membership at up to 40% off, which is a deal that's good not just for new members but returning subscribers too. Amazon has a different Kindle Unlimited deal offering two months for just $0.99 that's available for everyone if you don't want to sign up for Amazon Prime. The offers won't last forever though.
Good reads only
Yep, that's right. Three months. All the books you can handle. Free for Prime members.
If you prefer to listen to your books, Amazon's got you covered. Its Audible service has gotten a couple of Prime-exclusive discounts ahead of Amazon Prime Day. Prime members can score a 66% saving on a three-month Audible trial bringing the monthly price down to just $4.85. You will get a credit for one audiobook every month and those credits can be used on any audiobook on Audible regardless of price. You'll also get to pick two Audible Originals every month from Amazon's curated selection, essentially giving you three free audiobooks every month. If you're happy to commit to a longer period fo time, you can save $30 on a year-long membership and snag an Amazon Echo Dot smart speaker for only $1 in the process. The Echo Dot itself is half price alone right now at $25, so you can weigh up whether you want to go for the shorter trial and grab the Dot separately or get the discounted year-long membership with a $1 Dot. Echo devices work great with an Audible subscription allowing you to ask Alexa to resume your audiobook from where exactly where you left off.
Right now, you can save 75% on your first three months of Audible Escape. The service grants you unlimited listening to a huge selection of love stories including individual titles and full series from your favorite authors, as well as original and exclusive stories produced by Audible that you can't get anywhere else. This limited-time discount makes it just $3 per month for three months. You can cancel at any time or continue subscribing at the regular cost of $12.95 per month after the promotional period ends.
Amazon Music Unlimited
Books not your thing? Well, Amazon is also offering four months of its Music Unlimited streaming service for just $1 right now. The deal is only available to Prime subscribers and is running now through Prime Day. For only a quarter each month, you'll gain access to millions of hit songs that you can stream on-demand and ad-free on tons of devices, from smartphones to tablets, your computer, and more. It also allows you to download tracks directly to your device so you can keep listening in situations where you have no internet. The offer does state it's for new Music Unlimited users only but we've heard some people having luck redeeming it even if they've used the service before.
