New Subscribers Can Save $36 With 3 Free Months of Kindle Unlimited Ahead of Prime Day

If you're a bookworm looking to do some serious summer reading, this is a deal you won't want to miss.

Nothing beats lounging poolside and catching some rays while you get lost in a good book. And with a Kindle Unlimited subscription, you can access thousands of books whenever, wherever on your phone, laptop, tablet or e-reader. At just $12 a month, Unlimited is already a pretty great value (especially if you tend to fly through books). And if you're a new subscriber, right now you can get your first three months for free, saving you $36 total. There's not a set expiration for this offer pre-Prime Day, so we'd recommend getting signed up sooner rather than later if you don't want to miss out on these savings.

With over 4 million titles to choose from, Kindle Unlimited has something to offer every type of reader. Books range from popular fiction like The Three-Body Problem by Cixin Liu (which has a live-action Netflix adaptation on the way) to helpful nonfiction titles like Damon Zahariades' The Art of Saying No. Plus, it includes subscriptions to popular magazines such as People, Good Housekeeping, Rolling Stone and much more. And if you prefer to listen to your stories, there's also a huge selection of audiobooks that you can enjoy on long drives. Kindle Unlimited allows you to download books on your devices too, so you can take them off-grid for camping trips and beach days. Just remember that after the first three months, your subscription will revert back to the usual $12-a-month cost, but you can cancel at anytime.
