If you’ve been checking out Kindle deals in recent times and keep being tempted, you might not know what to do now that Prime Day 2023 is coming up in just a few weeks. Happening July 11 and running through July 12, Amazon tends to heavily discount its own products during such sales periods, so what do you do?

Fortunately, we’re on hand to help you figure out your next move. We’ve looked back through the peaks and lows of the price of all the main Kindle models on Amazon. From there, we’ve collated a table below that shows each model’s full price, current price, price on Prime Day 2022, and price on Black Friday 2022. Then, there’s a prediction for what we think the price for Prime Day 2023 is likely to be. For any Kindle models that weren’t released or lacked reported data, we’ve stuck a NA next to it so you know what to expect.

MSRP Today’s Price Prime Day 2022 Black Friday 2022 Best Price 2023 Prime Day 2023 (Prediction)
Kindle Paperwhite Kids $160 $160 $160 $90 $70 – $120
Kindle (2022) $100 NA $100 $75 $50 – $100
Kindle Paperwhite $140 $140 $95 $100 $80 – $110
Kindle Paperwhite Signature Edition $599 $190 $130 $140 $110 – $150
Kindle Oasis $280 $280 $185 $280 $200 – $220
Kindle Scribe $340 NA $340 $290 $270 – $320

These predictions are based on how much each model of Kindle usually drops during sales periods. We also considered other best prices throughout the year to work out what direction Amazon may be aiming for here, and which Kindle models it’s focusing on.

Should you wait until Prime Day to buy a Kindle?

For the most part, Kindle price drops aren’t always huge but there are a few exceptions where waiting would make a big difference. Whatever the saving, that’s money you’re not spending, and with Prime Day only a few weeks away, it makes sense to hold off and see how you could save. It’s not like waiting is going to cause the price to increase as Kindles are always a key part of Prime Day. If you want one of the best Kindles immediately such as if you have plans to sit by the pool and read, we get it. Buy it now. Savings are likely to be good but we may have already seen the biggest price cuts already, as part of the buildup to Prime Day.

Amazon’s Fire Max 11 tablet just got its first proper discount
The Amazon Kindle Fire Max 11's Home screen.

One of the best tablet deals at the moment is thanks to Amazon offering a big discount on its latest Amazon Fire Max 11 tablet. It's normally priced at $230 but today, you can buy it for $190 so you save $40 off the regular price. A pretty neat discount on such a recently released tablet, let's take a look at what else you might want to know about it before you hit the buy button.

Why you should buy the Amazon Fire Max 11
In our Amazon Fire Max 11 review, we raved about how it's a "brilliant Android tablet". It has a great 11-inch screen with 2,000 x 1,000 resolution so you can see everything clearly whether you're watching a movie, playing a game, or simply browsing the internet. Its simple design makes it very portable thanks to it weighing less than some iPads. While it doesn't make a statement, it has quality where it counts with Amazon stating it's three times as durable as the iPad 10.9-inch (10th generation).

This lingering Labor Day deal brings the iPhone 12 to $555
iPhone 12 in purple.

If you were planning to buy an iPhone from this year's Labor Day sales but you missed them for any reason, don't worry because some iPhone deals are still online. For example, the 64GB model of the unlocked Apple iPhone 12 remains available for $555 from Best Buy, for a discount of $75 on its sticker price of $630. We're not sure how much time you've got left to take advantage of this offer though -- it could disappear at any moment -- so if you're interested, you shouldn't hold yourself back from pushing through with the purchase.

Why you should buy the Apple iPhone 12
The Apple iPhone 12 isn't the latest model the popular smartphone -- it's the Apple iPhone 14, and very soon, it will be the Apple iPhone 15. However, that doesn't mean that the iPhone 12 is no longer a worthy purchase, as Apple's A14 Bionic chip still provides smooth performance by today's standards. It ships with iOS 14 pre-installed, but you can update it to iOS 17 so that you can enjoy all of the features of the newest version of the operating system.
