Amazon is doing its part to keep people entertained during the holiday season and into 2021 with extended trials for two of its most popular services. The deals are available now and get you free access to Amazon Music Unlimited and Kindle Unlimited through the end of the year if you’re a new subscriber.
1. Amazon Music Unlimited
Right now, Amazon is offering three months of free access to Amazon Music Unlimited, the site’s premium music streaming service (that competes with the likes of Spotify and Apple Music). Your free trial gets you access to tens of millions of songs in MP3 quality, with no ads and unlimited skips. You can even download your favorite tracks to play them offline.
You can listen on your computer (Mac and PC) or mobile device (iPhone and Android) via the Amazon website or the Amazon Music app. Your Amazon Music library will automatically update on all of your devices, so you can pick up where you left off whenever you left off. You can also stream Amazon Music tracks from Alexa-enabled smart speakers, like the Amazon Echo or Sonos One using your voice.
Sign up using the link above and get instant access. Once your three months are up, Amazon Music Unlimited is just $9.99 a month ($7.99 per month for Amazon Prime Members). This is the same price as Spotify or Apple Music. There’s no annual commitment though, so you can cancel anytime.
2. Kindle Unlimited
Prefer a good book over a good song? Amazon is also doubling the length of its free trial for Kindle Unlimited. Amazon typically offers a 30-day free trial but its new deal gets you two months of free access to a library of over one million books, a rotating catalogue of magazines, and thousands of audiobooks
Choose from best-selling fiction, new releases, book club favorites and more. Read or listen anytime on any device via the Kindle app (you don’t need to own a Kindle to download the e-books). An Amazon technology called Whispersync will sync your place across devices, like an omnipresent digital bookmark.
A Kindle Unlimited membership continues for just $9.99 a month after your two months of free reading are up. You can cancel anytime.
The new deals come on the heels of the launch of Audible Plus, a new subscription service that gives you unlimited access to hundreds of audiobooks and podcasts. Audible Plus costs $7.95 per month, no contract required.
