Kindle is turning 10, and Amazon is celebrating the anniversary of its e-reader series in true Amazon fashion — by slashing prices.
Just note that Amazon does not appear to have specified when most of these deals will end. And some websites report that all of these deals end as early as 9 p.m. ET Wednesday. So, don’t delay if you want to take advantage of slashed prices.
E-readers that are on sale right now include the:
- Kindle — $49.99 instead of $79.99
- Kindle Paperwhite — $89.99 instead of $119.99
- Kindle Voyage — $169.99 instead of $199.99
- Kindle for Kids Bundle — $69.99 instead of $124.98
Note that this $89.99 price for the Kindle Paperwhite — the bestselling Kindle model — is as low as it was on Amazon Prime Day 2017 and even lower than it was on Black Friday 2016. These prices for the Kindle, Kindle Voyage and Kindle for Kids Bundle are just as low as they were on Black Friday.
So, if you plan to buy someone a Kindle for the holidays, this sale enables you to get some gift shopping out of the way early this year — no need to wait until Black Friday.
If you’re in the market for a luggage tag, tote bag or umbrella, items bearing the Kindle logo are all 20 percent off right now.
