Amazon offers a myriad of online services (not the least of which is Amazon Prime) that many of us are familiar with, but almost all of these are aimed at adults who have an Amazon account. One lesser-known service Amazon now offers that you may not have heard about is Free Time Unlimited, a premium streaming subscription that’s made just for kids, and it’s the perfect way to let your youngest family members safely enjoy online content.

Prime Day falls on July 15 and 16 this year, but given how large this yearly blowout event has grown, the whole of July might as well be called “Prime Month” – and through the month, Amazon is offering non-Prime members an introductory Free Time Unlimited deal. This package lets you score a three-month subscription for just $3 and snag a pair of kids’ headphones as a free bonus. If you’re a parent or guardian who’s been looking for a good way to let a special kid you know have their own safe, family-friendly streaming option for books, shows, educational software, and more, then read on.

Amazon offers adult users a number of streaming options for all sorts of content, from Prime Video to Audible audiobooks, but Free Time Unlimited is specifically designed with children aged three to 12 (and just as importantly, their parents) in mind. Free Time Unlimited gives your kids unlimited access to thousands of ebooks, Audible audiobooks, shows, movies, games, and educational apps while allowing parents to manage everything from content availability to screen time. Libraries can be accessed via a variety of devices as well, including Fire tablets, Kindle e-readers, and Android and Apple tablets and smartphones.

The Free Time Unlimited family plan gives you separate user accounts for up to four children and normally runs for $10 per month for non-Prime members, while a monthly plan for one child rings in at $5 per month. This introductory offer lets you grab a three-month subscription for just $3 – $27 off the regular price – and as a nice little bonus, Amazon is throwing in a free pair of Disney- or Marvel-themed kids’ headphones (a $15 to $20 value) for free. There are five pairs to choose from for both boys and girls. You’ll receive your free headphones offer via email after buying your three-month Free Time Unlimited membership.

This smart Celestron telescope is 32% off for Prime Day in October
Celestron telescope with its many attachments.

Want to level up your stargazing game? Right now is an interesting time to get into the hobby, with incredible images from the VLT Survey Telescope being released and new rockets being launched every few months. This Celestron StarSense Explorer DX telescope isn't going to give you views of planets in other solar systems, but it has a bunch of cool features to help new astronomers get excited about space. As part of Prime Day telescope deals, this Celestron is discounted from $470 to just $320. Grab it before Prime Big Deal Days are over.

Why you should buy the Celestron StarSense Explorer DX telescope during Prime Day
The biggest feature of the Celestron StarSense Explorer DX that makes it great for beginners is the ability to hook it up to your smartphone. Connecting your phone lets you use the app to get a guided tour of the sky. Just point the telescope up in the sky (on a clear night) and connect the app. Using StarSense technology, the telescope figures out exactly what it's looking at. It knows where you are in the world, what time it is, and what it's looking at. From there it can point you in the direction of interesting things to look at based on your location and time. This is great for people just starting out in the world of stargazing.

Prime Day in October: Get a pack of 12 AA rechargeable batteries for $18
AmazonsBasics AA batteries being inserted into a game controller.

As much as we try to avoid it, sometimes, you just have to buy those pesky household items you never want to spend money on. But if you're lucky, you can take advantage of some excellent discounts, like Prime Day deals, which provide the perfect opportunity to stock up. Amazon's Prime Day Big Deal Days event makes those discounts even sweeter. While we are close to an AA-battery-free world, it hasn't happened yet. Fortunately, we have a rechargeable option to spend less money and throw fewer batteries into landfills. Right now, you can get a 12-pack of Amazon Basic rechargeable batteries for just $18, thanks to a 10% discount on Prime Day. This deal will likely only stick around during the sale, so if your battery drawer is running low, grab them as soon as possible.

Why you should buy Amazon AA rechargeable batteries during the Prime Day Big Deal Days sale
Of course, there's not much I can tell you about batteries that you don't already know. These Amazon Basics brand AAs have a 2,000 mAh storage capacity. That's lower than a traditional alkaline battery, but it has enough power to last for a good three to four hours of continuous use. Then the rechargeable factor comes in. You can recharge these batteries about 1,000 times before they die out. Think about how many batteries it will save you -- and how much money. Let's do some quick napkin math. 1,000 recharges... alkaline batteries cost around one-third the price of a rechargeable... factor in the difference in storage capacity... It could be as much as $300 in savings over a single battery's lifetime. A lot less waste too.

Logitech C270 -- $24, was $30

In our roundup of the best Logitech webcams, we picked the Logitech C270 for students on a tight budget. It's very affordable, but it still offers decent 720p resolution and automatic light correction so that you'll look clear when you join online classes, as well as a microphone with noise reduction so you'll be heard loud and clear from as far as 5 feet away. The webcam also comes with an adjustable universal clip that should allow it to attach to any monitor or laptop, though you can also fold it and use it as a stand.
