is officially over. But you can still find great deals on a number of subscriptions and services. Though many of us think of Prime Day as the big blowout event where you can find deep discounts on all sorts of merchandise -- everything from to the -- it's not just about the "stuff."
Below, check out some of the best discounts on Kindle Unlimited, Audible and more. Keep three important things in mind:
- Most of these subscriptions and services are available until July 31.
- After the promo period, you'll automatically begin to get billed at the full rate until or unless you cancel.
- Note that CNET may get a share of revenue from the sale of the services featured on this page.
New subscribers to Kindle Unlimited, Amazon's catalog of more than a million books and thousands of audio books, can get three months of the service for free. Since Kindle Unlimited is regularly $9.99 per month -- and a normal trial period is typically 30 days -- that's a pretty decent savings. Note that you must be a Prime member to take advantage of this deal, and the promotion ends July 31. (This deal is also thrown in if you buy a new Kindle -- all of which are nicely discounted for Prime Day.)
If you spend a lot of time in your car or on the bus, you might prefer listening to your books. For the month of July, you can get three months of Audible Gold for just $4.95 per month. The service is regularly $14.95 per month, so you're essentially getting three months for the price of one. With the Gold plan, you get credits toward one audiobook and two Audible Originals a month, which you can keep even after your membership has ended. To get this deal, you must be a Prime member and new to Audible. The offer ends July 31.
In the mood for romance? For the whole month of July, both Prime and non-Prime members can sign up for three months of Audible Escape for $3 per month. Audible Escape gives you unlimited listening to a wide selection of love stories. A regular membership is typically $12.95 per month. When the three months is up, you can either pony up for the full $12.95 price or cancel the membership. The offer ends July 31.
Ever worry about what your kid is watching on YouTube? FreeTime Unlimited is a kid-friendly subscription service that helps parents control the kinds of content their kids can access. It's aimed at kids ages 3 to 12 and offers ad-free movies, TV shows, apps, games and more. The service regularly costs $29.99 per month, but right now, anyone can get it for $2.99. That price is usually only available for Prime members. And for the month of July, if you sign up for a three-month subscription, you'll also get a free set of kids' Disney headphones. (Sorry, adults.) Kids can choose from Avengers, Aladdin, Spider-Man or Toy Story headphones. The promotion ends July 31.
