Update: Amazon has a press release with some figures…yes, surpassing Black Friday. 4000 Echoes sold in 15 minutes…
Update: one of the best deals on Prime Day is
This is Amazon’s subser (subscription service…”all you can read” for a flat monthly fee). I’m a happy member of KU, and have been since the beginning.
Today only, Prime members only, can get a pre-paid plan at a significant discount!
These are the prices (in the USA):
- 6 Months: $59.94 – Now $44.95
- 12 Months: $119.88 – Now $80.32
- 24 Months: $239.76 – Now $143.86
That last one works out to about $5.99 a month!
If you are already a member, here is some information for you:
- Customers who are on a monthly plan and have previously purchased a pre-paid plan that is currently associated with their account and customers who have purchased multiple pre-paid plans that are currently associated with their accounts are not eligible.
- Existing Kindle Unlimited subscribers with monthly memberships who have not previously purchased a pre-paid plan are eligible for this promotion. For those subscribers who choose to participate, automatic renewals will be temporarily suspended for the duration of the monthly package purchased and will automatically restart at its conclusion
You can gift a KU membership…and this would be a great gift.

* I am linking to the same thing at the regular Amazon site, and at AmazonSmile. When you shop at AmazonSmile, half a percent of your purchase price on eligible items goes to a non-profit you choose. It will feel just like shopping at Amazon: you’ll be using your same account. The one thing for you that is different is that you pick a non-profit the first time you go (which you can change whenever you want)…and the good feeling you’ll get. Shop ’til you help! By the way, it’s been interesting lately to see Amazon remind me to “start at AmazonSmile” if I check a link on the original Amazon site. I do buy from AmazonSmile, but I have a lot of stored links I use to check for things.
