If you are an Amazon Prime member, then you can save up to $50 on new Kindle devices! As a long-time Kindle owner (I have owned one since the 2nd edition), I cannot remember the last time I went a day without using my Kindle. It has also become a constant digital companion for all of my flights (except for ones that depart from these 10 cities to the US – at least for now!). If you are an Amazon Prime member, you can get a great deal on 3 different models.
Great Deals on Kindle Devices for Amazon Prime Members
The basic Kindle gets down to this price each year around the November – December shopping season but if you missed it then, you can grab it now. Here are the models on sale and their prices. Remember, you must be an Amazon Prime member to take advantage of these sales (the discount will show up in your cart when you are signed in). These prices are actually cheaper than Amazon’s refurbished prices for the same models!
- Amazon Kindle – Regular price $79 | Sale price $49
- Amazon Kindle Paperwhite – Regular price $119 | Sale price $89
- Amazon Kindle Voyage – Regular price $199 | Sale price $149
The model I currently own is a Kindle Paperwhite from a couple of years ago. It is perfect for reading in the dark anywhere, thanks to its built-in lighting system. If you were wondering whether to go for the basic model or the Paperwhite, I would suggest spending the extra $40 for the upgraded model, especially since it includes the built-in light.
I have never owned the more expensive Voyage model and certainly never owned the top-end Oasis model. The Oasis is not on sale and rings in at a price of $289. Yes, that is high for an e-reader in this tablet-driven age but is funny to see how far this technology has come. My wife purchased my first Kindle for me as a present and paid $389! Now, you can get an incredibly thin model with a very high text resolution screen for $100 less. Or, you can go $340 less and get a Kindle that is undoubtedly better than my first one!
If you choose not to buy now but are interested in one, the Kindle happens to be the number 1 giveaway item here on my site. I think I have given away around 20 so you may have a chance at one in the future. 🙂
If you are an avid reader, don’t forget to check out Kindle Unlimited! It is a great way to gain access to over a million books for a flat monthly fee. Plus, it has all the Lonely Planet guidebooks so you will never need to buy one again!
