Should I shop on Prime Day or wait until Black Friday?
Prime Day and Black Friday are both set to take place in the fall this year. Though this means we’re in for a great season of savings, there’s a couple of things all shoppers should keep in mind. Amazon products like Kindles might sell out on Prime Day and not see a fresh restock in time for Black Friday or Cyber Monday. Shopping on Black Friday might also result in significant delays because of increased demand, so you might not get your goods in time for Christmas. We also expect to see similar discounts on Prime Day and Black Friday, so don’t let that hold you back from shopping these Prime Day Kindle deals today.
Are any Prime Day Kindle deals too good to be true?
A lot of Kindle models have already seen big discounts and you can expect to see similar today. Before you purchase your new e-reader, make sure you know what you’re buying. Do a little bit of research before purchasing to decide which Kindle model is best for you. There are also a lot of Kindle knock-offs out there so make sure you’re buying the right product and don’t let yourself be enticed by the lower price of a knock off. It will only lead to disappointment.
How to choose a Kindle
There are a few models of Amazon’s Kindle on the market worth buying. It all depends on how often you plan to use your e-reader and what features you’re looking for. The Amazon Kindle Oasis is the best Kindle currently available and gives you a luxurious reading experience like no other. It has a large, 7-inch display that uses 25 integrated LED lights for a more evenly-lit screen — important if you tend to use your e-reader for hours on end. It also automatically adjusts brightness, making it easy on the eyes. If you’re looking for an e-reader that most closely mimics a real book, go with the Kindle Oasis. Today you can save up to $105 off a Kindle Oasis 8GB bundle, which comes with a leather cover and power adapter.
If you’re looking for a more affordable option with the same high-resolution display and waterproof features as the Oasis but without the hefty price tag, buy the Kindle Paperwhite. This lightweight reader’s clear, touchscreen display and sleek design make it a treat to use. Like the Oasis, you can take this e-reader for a dip in the pool or carry it to your hour-long baths without any issues. It’s not as responsive as the Kindle Oasis but still packs a punch making it a solid e-reader. You can pick up the latest generation Paperwhite and get up to $50 off today.
The most budget-friendly option on the market, though, has to be the newer Amazon Kindle (2019). It’s usually $90 — but you can get it for $30 off today — and its light-up display is almost on par with the Paperwhite. This Kindle is a great option for those of you that want an e-reader in addition to buying physical books. Though the resolution is lower than the Paperwhite and it doesn’t have any waterproof abilities, you’ll be perfectly satisfied using this Kindle on a daily basis. Can’t choose between this and the standard Kindle Paperwhite? We’ve pitted them head to head in an ultimate Kindle vs Kindle Paperwhite showdown (spoiler: Kindle Paperwhite is king.) More interested in the Kindle Oasis? We took them to the colosseum too for their own Kindle Oasis vs Kindle Paperwhite showdown.
Finally, the Kindle Kids Edition is a great e-reader for your young ones who love reading as much as you do. The display properties are very similar to the Kindle (2019) but there’s the added bonus of no lock screen ads at all. They also come with rugged, fun, colorful cases that your kids will love. You can pick up a Kids Edition bundle and save $50, but hurry as this offer won’t be around for much longer.
