Blinkist is offering free Premium access for the next 30 days to battle coronavirus self-isolation

The coronavirus pandemic outbreak has driven the whole world into chaos and forced people to stay at home and maintain social distancing (except for the frontliners). So, if you’ve been stuck at home and having a hard time to stave off the boredom, bingeing TV shows, movies or gaming 24/7 might be an answer. However, reading can prove to be more productive and a great way to pass the quarantine-time.

Last week, reading subscription service Scribd announced to give away unlimited access to its digital library for 30 days. And today, Blinkist, book-summarizing subscription service, has joined the cause to fight back the coronavirus self-isolation and started offering the Blinkist Premium until April 28 to the already-registered users, for the next 30 days as a part of “Staying in, Staying informed” initiative.

“With all of us doing our part to stay home and stay healthy, many of us are rethinking how we spend our time. Remember that learning can be a form of self-care—and we’re here to help,” the Blinkist team expressed in an email newsletter.

Blinkist Premium free 30 days coronavirus, covid-19 offer

The full library of Blinks including original shows like Two Minutes, State of Mind, Simplify (and many more!)  are available for free access. No strings attached. Not a free trial, no commitment or credit card required. Moreover, the author-exclusive content and audiobooks are up at a special Premium member price.

The free access to Blinkist Premium should be automatically activated to the existing users. However, for the new users to get full access to the library and Blinkist Premium for free, you can just sign up today, join the 7-day trial and get access right away on your Blinkist mobile app and web app.

Normally Blinkist comes at $7.49 monthly (billed $89.99 annually) or $14.99 a month (or for 30% less with Blinkist coupon code) and has 3000+ Blinks, audiobooks, and original shows and podcasts. Read Blinkist review to explore more.

That all said, Blinkist made another announcement via social media (Facebook and Twitter), which mentions the offer gives 30-day free access to new users to top curated Blinks (rather than a full library of Blinks) + every episode of all Blinkist Original shows. Nonetheless, you can always enjoy reading.
