Sometimes it can be really difficult to decide what to get family or loved ones for birthdays and other special occasions.
So, this year I’ve decided to gift Kindle Unlimited. If your partner or parents love to read it may be the perfect gift and could save you hours trying to find a book they may like.
Instead, why not give them “all the books” 😊
So, what are the benefits of Kindle Unlimited?
In case you didn’t know.
You can gift Kindle Unlimited to anyone. It’s easy to order and you will receive an email with the gift enclosed. If you prefer Amazon has a choice of delivery options including sending out a gift card that the recipient can add to their Kindle account.
In this section we will go through a simple step-by-step guide on how to gift Kindle Unlimited to someone you love.
If you prefer, we have a video tutorial which will guide you through the process. It’s relatively straight forward but if you have any issues, please mention them in the comments section below and I’ll do my best to help out.
If you are recipient of a Kindle Unlimited gift via email, it’s really straight-forward to use the ecard and add the membership to your account.
1. Simply open the Amazon email and select the “Redeem your Kindle Unlimited Membership” yellow button just below the image.
Just be sure to check the email is genuine by messaging your friend first.
2. You now have the choice to select either Kindle Unlimited subscription, or you can exchange this for an Amazon gift card if you prefer something else.
Amazon implies that you can only exchange Kindle Unlimited Gift for a gift card if you are already a Kindle Unlimited member. But having tried this myself, without being a Unlimited member, I can assure you that you can do this successfully.
Students are constantly reading text and academic books for their studies. Some of these books can cost $100+ and in some cases may only be required for one semester (I’ll admit I have at least several books on my shelf collecting dust).
What if you gave them a 12-month Kindle Unlimited gift instead of giving them money to pay for textbooks?
Here are just some of the benefits of doing this:
Some academic books can have 600+ pages and weigh over half a pound. Imagine carrying four of these in a backpack each day while going from once class to another.
And not all classes are within the same campus I can tell you!
Want your money to go further?
Students by default get an extra discount on Kindle Unlimited. They get a further 20% and 3 months free.
So why not give them an Amazon Gift Card and let them purchase Kindle Unlimited using their own Amazon account. That way you can save some money, or they can upgrade from a 6-month to a 12-month subscription.
Kindle Unlimited can be accessed on multiple devices and apps. You can access on multiple devices at the same time. Amazon does not appear to have an issue with devices in different geographical locations so you may be able to access different devices in different zip codes.
You can pay part or the full amount using an Amazon gift card. Gift cards are added at the end during the payment process, before you confirm the transaction. The amount on the gift card will be deducted from the total amount leaving you with any remaining amount to pay by debit/credit card.
You can share any Kindle book you have purchased with a family member. To do this, you need to access content manager within your Amazon account, select Family Library link and select the ebook you want to lend out.
