Prime Members, Find Out How to Get a Great Deal on Kindle Devices!

Written by Charlie

The great deals on Kindle e-reader devices is back! To take advantage of these great, really low prices, you must be an Amazon Prime member and have an Amex Membership Reward earning card. Find out how to get the discounts to activate to save big!

Here we go again – Amazon has discounted their most popular Kindle devices for Prime members and again given us the deal with Membership Reward points to get them for as low as $19.99 each. If you missed out on the last couple of Kindle deals, you may want to check this one!

Prime Members – Get the Amazon Kindles for Cheap!

The Deal

Amazon is running a Prime-exclusive deal to bring the price down on their popular Kindle readers. You can get the basic Kindle for $49 or the Paperwhite for $79. Both are really nice deals but you can get them even better if you have an American Express card that earns Membership Reward Points.

Step 1

Click this link to link your Amex card with your Amazon account (if you have not already done so – but if you took advantage of the awesome 20% off deal, you have already done this step).

Step 2

Click this link to activate the special Kindle offer. This will add an offer to your account (even though it might say it cannot add it – you should see it when you move to the next step) that will take $30 off the Kindle and $40 off the Paperwhite. However, if you add the basic Kindle (or 2) to your cart, it will apply the Paperwhite discount instead to take the $40 off. Be careful of this if you want the Paperwhite discount to apply for the Paperwhite as you cannot use it after you use that $40 off on the basic Kindle.

Step 3

Add a Kindle (or 2) to your cart. Once you go to your cart, select to pay with the American Express MR card. Select to add points (be careful as it may add all points by default) and select to just use $.01 to use just a single MR point.

This will kick the deal above in and you should see the two discounts stack – one for the Prime Exclusive and one for this Amex deal.

You are limited to just 2 Kindles of the same device but you should be able to get 2 of each color. In the past, you could get the basic Kindle and the Paperwhite discount would apply to get it for just $9.99 per reader!

I am not able to replicate the deal myself but think it is because I have an Amazon Kindle 25% trade-in code so it won’t stack. If you have one of those as well, you may be facing the same problem.
