How to save almost $100 on Kindle Unlimited today…and it’s not obvious
Here’s a copy of the chat transcript you requested:
Initial Question: How do I get the 40% off on Kindle Unlimited as part of Prime Day (being a Prime member)?
Note that this was set up as buying it as a gift, but I put in the e-mail address under which we currently are KU members, and it worked just fine.
The discount did not show until the very final step, just before payment. It had offered me another discount before that with a new credit card, but that was irrelevant and I ignored it.
At checkout, it showed a “Prime Savings” of $95.90, making two months of KU $143.86…about $5.99 a month instead of the normal $9.99 a month. We did this during last year’s Prime Day, so that works. 🙂
Check the price before you finalize the order…this may be only for the USA, and I think it’s only for 24 months.

* 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.
