The season of sales is just beginning, but this may be the week to buy a Kindle. Thanks to our friends at TechBargains, we spotted four awesome Kindle deals going on this week, and one equally great discount on a Fire HD 8 Kids Edition tablet.
The best all-around Kindle (25% off)
If you want a Kindle, but haven’t gotten further than that, the Paperwhite has long been the best place to start. It has most of the luxury Kindle features, including a pleasant light-up screen and 30-day battery life, but at a price that won’t destroy you. This week, you can grab the normal 6-inch Amazon Kindle Paperwhite Wi-Fi ebook reader for $90 (List Price: $120).
A more luxurious Kindle (15% off)
The Kindle Voyage is a small step-up from the Paperwhite. But that still means you get extras like convenient page press buttons and a more robust, auto-adjusting backlight. Bottom line, it’s a great Kindle, and also on sale. You can nab a 6-inch Kindle Voyage Wi-Fi ebook reader for $170 (List Price: $200).
If any Kindle will do (38% off)
The standard 6-inch Kindle is totally usable, just not in the dark. Its resolution is a little lower, but honestly it probably won’t bother you a bit. The lack of a backlight might, but at this price, maybe just turn the lamp on. The standard 6-inch Kindle Wi-Fi ebook reader for $50 (List Price: $80).
Unlimited ebooks for your ebook reader (33% off)
If you decide to curl up with a new Kindle this week, you may want to consider Amazon’s Kindle Unlimited subscription. We’re not always fans of the growing subscription economy, but this one gives unlimited access to 1 million books that you can read at your leisure, and some free Audible books, too. That’s not a bad deal. There are 12-month and 24-month options. You can get a 12-month Kindle Unlimited subscription for about $80 (List Price: $120).
This Fire tablet is also on sale
It doesn’t fit with our Kindle theme, but hey, maybe your kids will read a few Kindle books on this Fire Kids Edition tablet in between games and Disney movies. At $30 off its normal price, it’s within reach if you’re shopping for holiday gifts. The Fire HD 8 is our favorite Amazon Fire tablet, and its Kids Edition comes with a few extra features and a nice shock-absorbing case. You can buy the 8-inch Fire HD 8 Kids Edition for $100 (List Price: $130).
