Kindle deals aren’t just restricted to discounts on the devices themselves but services relating to them too. Right now, you can sign up to three months of Kindle Unlimited for free so you don’t have to worry about the monthly fee of $12. That works out as a saving of $36 across the three months while also allowing you to check out a near-endless supply of books too. Whether you’ve just bought a Kindle or you’re settling down for better habits this year, this is a great deal for anyone who hasn’t already signed up for it in the past. Keen to learn more? Let’s take a look at what Kindle Unlimited has to offer.

Why you should sign up for Kindle Unlimited
Kindle Unlimited is basically Amazon’s book-borrowing service. It works just like a virtual library allowing you to check out up to 10 items at once. Not just e-books are catered for here with audiobooks and comic books also available, along with many magazine subscriptions. It’s possible to borrow titles as often as you like with no due dates if you don’t return them by a set time.

A couple of the more popular music subscription services are Spotify and Apple Music, but Amazon also has a streaming music service. It’s called Amazon Music Unlimited, and right now you can get three months of the service entirely for free. Amazon Music Unlimited typically costs $11 per month, or $10 per month for Prime members, so these three free months free are worth up to a $33 value. There’s no strings attached, though you’ll need to remember to cancel your subscription when your three free months are up if you don’t want to be billed for future use.

Why you should get Amazon Music Unlimited
Amazon Music Unlimited is a great subscription for audiophiles to consider, as it puts a lot of emphasis on high quality audio. With an Amazon Music Unlimited subscription you get access to more than 100 million songs in high definition and millions of songs in Ultra HD. It has a growing catalog of music mastered in Dolby Atmos and 360 Reality Audio. These are all great technologies for experiencing music at a deeper level, making road trips, workouts, and daily commutes more immersive and entertaining.

Our favorite smart notebook is $70 off right now

Taking notes on the go can be a bit inconvenient on a phone, and carrying around a stack of paper with you in the form of a notebook can get heavy pretty quickly. Luckily, e-ink screens are a great alternative, and if you're already familiar with the Kindle line of products, like the Paperwhite and Oasis, then you'll very much love the Scribe. Not only can it be used as an e-reader, but you can use it to take notes as well, which is a great feature on an already solid device. While it usually goes for $340, you can get the version with the basic pen and 16GB of storage for $270 directly from Amazon, while the premium pen version is going for $295 instead of $370, both of which are excellent deals.

Why you should buy the Amazon Kindle Scribe
One thing that you'll appreciate about the Amazon Kindle Scribe, regardless of whether you want it for e-reading or note-taking, is the larger 10.2-inch screen. That means you can fit a lot more text on there, requiring less taping to go to the next page when reading and a more comfortable note-taking experience. It has 300 pixels per inch, so it's still a sharp and excellent resolution for a bigger screen, and it even has the same backlighting you'd find in other Kindle devices, which you won't find in something like the reMarkable 2.
