Last Edited by Devistater July 6, 2016 at 05:22 AM
Looks like amazon is running a sale on kindle unlimited subscription, the notification I got from my kindle reader says today only (guessing it's part of the runup to prime day)

Once logged in, this link shows the discount:

https://www.amazon.com/b/ref=s9_a...4741166011

Requires prime, but free prime trial can be had (see wiki).

Prices are:
6 Months: $59.94 - Now $44.95
12 Months: $119.88 - Now $80.32
24 Months: $239.76 - Now $143.86

I believe this is lowest Kindle Unlimited has been (except the combo of that weird unannounced turbotax deal that happened last year plus the 40% off it was at that time too)

Here's a browse page to see some of the titles available with Kindle Unlimited, don't have to have the sub to see it.

Also, doesn't cost anything to sign up for 30 day trial and browse and download titles, see if you want to buy the subscription.

Looks like when I click gift, says it sends an email with instructions on how to redeem the subscription to recipient. You choose date to deliver it to. It also says that if you don't have the target email at the moment, you can enter your own email and forward the redemption email to the recipient.
Amazon doesn't care, they will charge you the minute you click purchase Smilie

Sign up for the 30 day trial to see which books are on it, see if you'd get your money's worth out of it.
I like it because I've already read many of the established authors and while many of them don't choose to put their books up on kindle unlimited, a lot of good new authors do choose to put themselves on it.
It depends on what genres and authors you read. And it's something that can only be answered by you.

Not sure if this link is generic to anyone or specific to my favored genres (sci fi etc), but here's the page I get when I click Kindle Unlimited tab at top of browser when visiting amazon.

You can see some of the available titles.

This is the same deal they had last year for Prime Day, I got a year's subscription then. I just renewed at the discounted price again this year. For me, it's absolutely 100% worth it. I find gobs of reading material via Unlimited.

the reason i ask was there was a "hack" a while ago where if you did a gift, you basically got a gift card which you could then use to buy a membership and/or any other amazon products.

that loop hole may have been fixed by now...

Can anybody tell me about the audio books and how to find them? Trying to figure out if this is a good deal, but mostly looking for adding audio to my phone's kindle to listen to books. How many books are there and any text or technology books on kindle unlimited?

This is all new to me.

There's a help topic [amazon.com] that explains how to redeem the gift subscription for a gift card. I would assume this works if you choose yourself as the recipient.

If you have audible a good number of audiobooks are included as well. Any audiobooks go through audible. It's linked with Amazon though.
