With just a few days until the start of Prime Day, Amazon is slowly releasing some exciting deals before the shopping event (July 12 and 13). If you want deep savings (and who doesn’t), look no further than these deals on entertainment subscription services from the online retailer.
First up, Amazon Music Unlimited is heavily discounted to just zero cents for three months for first-time subscribers. That’s not a typo. You can enjoy all the podcasts and ad-free music you can handle with songs from recording artists like Drake, Dolly, Neil Young, and more for nothing for the trial period.
After the three months is up just cancel the service and you won't be charged. However, if you choose to keep the music playing, a subscription is only $9 per month for Prime members ($10 for nonmembers)— sounds like music to our ears!
If books are more your thing, Amazon is also offering an exclusive free three-month trial subscription of Audible Premium Plus for Prime members. You'll get one credit per month to purchase any premium selection title, plus unlimited access to bestsellers like Where the Crawdads Sing by Delia Owens, Atlas of the Heart by Brené Brown, and much more with unlimited access to thousands of audiobooks, podcasts, guided meditations and more. After three months, the rate increases to $15 per month.
If that's too ambitious for you, you can try Audible Plus for 30 days for free. You'll get all the perks of Audible Premium Plus subscribers, minus the credit for a premium title. After the trial period, the rate goes up to $8 per month.
Both Amazon Music Unlimited and Audible Premium Plus are high-quality services with a wide selection of music and audiobooks, respectively, while each is available to stream on iOS and Android smartphones and tablets, as well as PC and Mac laptops and desktops. This is your chance to try these subscription services for free!

Participating in community sport can improve children’s mental, physical and social wellbeing, but only if the sport environment is physically and emotionally safe.

But they need to know it’s more like a lottery than an insurance policy. Fertility declines with age. To avoid age-related infertility, women increasingly turn to elective egg freezing.

Solarseven / ShutterstockEarth is the only planet we know of with continents, the giant landmasses that provide homes to humankind and most of Earth’s biomass. However, we still don’t have firm answers to some basic questions about continents: how did they come to be, and why did they form where they did?
