Amazon's pre-holiday Kindle Unlimited deal is better than we expected

Our editorial team is dedicated to finding and telling you more about the products and deals we love. If you love them too and decide to purchase through the links below, we may receive a commission.

Ahead of the holidays, Amazon is slowly but surely releasing deal after deal to get us in the shopping spirit. 

For a limited time, you can grab Kindle Unlimited for 50 percent off. Usually the subscription will cost you upwards of $60 for 6 months, but right now you can snag access to millions of books, magazines, Audibles and more for just $29.97 for the same 6-month time span. That's less than $5 a month!

The biggest misconception with Kindle Unlimited is that you need to own a Kindle tablet to access the offerings, whereas in actuality, Kindle Unlimited can actually be enjoyed on any type of device -- from your smartphone to your iPad.

That being said, with over 13,000 positive reviews, it's clear why book-lovers have gravitated to Amazon's best-selling Kindle Paperwhite

"I am an avid reader and adore the new paperwhite! To me, it’s the perfect reader. No light bleed thru, easy to control the amount of backlight, easy to download books and simply just easy to read my books," one reviewer wrote.

Another said, "This Kindle is lighter and thinner than the last generation, noticeably so. The flat edge to edge screen is an improvement in feel and makes it much easier to clean. It still has an excellent non-glare screen that I love for reading outdoors."
