With Amazon Prime Day 2019 coming soon, many shoppers may assume the best deals are for smart home devices, Instant Pots, and robot vacuums. But Amazon also discounts Prime Day prices on Amazon services like Audible, Amazon Music Unlimited, Kindle Unlimited, AmazonFresh, and more.
In the run-up to Prime Day, which lasts 48 hours this year on July 15 and July 16, Amazon has been releasing pre-Prime Day deals to build shopper excitement and to keep other retailers on their toes. We’ve been tracking the deals as Amazon releases them and making predictions about pricing for popular products. We have found early discounts on Amazon Services, listed below. We also list additional services deals we expect but have not yet been able to verify.
Verified Amazon services
Amazon Music Unlimited is one of the most popular services. Subscribers have unlimited access to virtually any song, on demand, and without bothersome advertising. You can listen online or offline and manage your access hands-free with Alexa. The regular subscription price is $8 a month, but from now until midnight July 16, PT, you can subscribe for four months for $1. After the four months, unless you cancel, you will be billed $8 each month until you cancel your subscription.
Amazon is offering Prime members a free three-month trial subscription to KindleUnlimited. With this subscription, you have unlimited access to more than 1 million Kindle titles, current magazines, and thousands of Audible audiobooks. With the Kindle app, you can read or listen on any device at any time. After the three-month trial, you will be billed $10 each month unless you cancel ahead of time. There is no contract, and you can cancel any time. This trial subscription deal expires on July 31.
If you love books and stories and want to instill that love in your child or children, a subscription to Prime Book Box sends hand-picked for your child’s age group. You can sign up for Prime Book Box every one, two, or three months. The box for babies contains four board books. The boxes for ages 3 to 5, 6 to 8, and 9 to 12 each contain two hardcover books. Each month or shipment period, before the box is shipped, parents can preview and choose from a list of selected books or just be surprised by the Amazon book editor choices. The Prime Book Box subscription normally costs $20 for each box, but with the Prime Day subscription deal the first box costs $14. So far we have not seen an expiration date for this deal.
Prime Day deals are limited to Amazon Prime members, but if you’re not a member you can sign up for a free 30-day trial to take advantage of Prime Day deals and enjoy all Prime Member benefits.
