Check your AMEX offers for a free 1-year subscription to Blinkist. It may not be available to everyone. Blinkist Premium is normally $99/year or $15.99/month. You must log in to your AMEX account and locate the deal under “Offers & Benefits” then add the deal to your card. Use the same card to sign up for Blinkist Premium and your free trial starts right away. Remember to cancel prior to the one-year anniversary of signing up to avoid being charged.
Active duty military can sign up for a number of American Express cards and have the annual fee waived as long as you are on active duty status. I recommend the American Express Platinum that carries an annual fee of $550 but can be waived plus get 60,000 membership points when you sign up. Be sure to use a reminder app to avoid being charged in a year such as Todoist.com. You can get a student discount on Todoist if you are enrolled in any college that offers a .edu email address.
Blinkist.com offers full-length nonfiction audiobooks, 15-minute audio summaries of nonfiction books, and summaries of top podcasts. Blinkist is a great way to learn on the go and get a summary of the main ideas of some of the top nonfiction books. The normal free trial period is only seven days. Get your deal now before it is gone. For a list of all current AMEX deals, see my table.
