Amazon Offering Deep Discounts on Kindle E-Readers

Amazon is stepping it up again in an effort to attract more Prime members.

The e-commerce giant is currently offering $30 to $50 off most of its Kindle e-readers to existing Prime members as well as customers who sign up for a free Prime trial.

Amazon Prime is a subscription that gives you access to a world of savings. For details, check out “8 Major Freebies and Discounts You Get With Amazon Prime.”

The current Kindle discounts are as big as or bigger than they were in November and December, around Black Friday:

No discount is available for the high-end Kindle Oasis.

If you are not already a Prime member, be sure to click on “Try Prime FREE” in the product description of the Kindle you want to buy before you add it to your cart. Otherwise, you won’t see the applicable discount in your cart.

If you start a free Prime trial but decide you don’t want to pay for a Prime subscription, be sure to cancel it before the trial ends. More details are available on the “End Your Amazon Prime Membership” page.

Also note that, as Amazon’s fine print puts it, “This is a limited time offer … good while supplies last.” Amazon does not further specify how long these discounts will last, so don’t wait to act on them if you’re interested.

If even a deeply discounted Kindle costs more than you can or are willing to pay for an e-reader, know that you don’t need one, as I detail in “How to Enjoy E-Books Without Buying an E-Reader.”

There are many e-books you don’t have to pay for either — check out “11 Places to Find Free E-Books.”
