Best price for kindle paperwhite: Best cheap Kindle deals June 2023

Best cheap Kindle deals June 2023

When it comes to finding a device to use to read your ebooks, you have a few options to choose from. You can always buy a tablet or use your phone, but those devices are multipurpose and can be used for a ton of things, like surfing the web or doom-scrolling on Twitter. If you are looking for something to strictly read books, e-readers, while niche, are designed to store all of your books in a virtual library with limited functionality.

Amazon, one of the pioneers of the e-reader, has dominated the space for years with its ever-expanding Kindle lineup, which consists of several unique models with their own pros and cons. The bulk of the devices function as simple ebook readers; however, with the Kindle Scribe, Amazon looks to be moving beyond books and into the realm of writing — something that should make future Kindles function more akin to physical paper.

Below, we’ve listed each model currently available. Sometimes, there isn’t a deal for one or any of the products, but we’ve mentioned the most recent sale price in those instances. Also, keep in mind that Amazon offers 20 percent off all of its Kindles when you trade in select devices, so there are still other ways to save money when none of the models are available at a discount.

What does it mean when a Kindle is “ad-supported”?

Amazon Kindle e-readers come in different storage configurations, but there is also an additional option that allows you to buy the e-reader with or without ads. Ad-supported Kindles will display personalized advertisements on the lock screen when it is in sleep mode or at the bottom of the homescreen when the device is connected to Wi-Fi. Typically, you save about $20 by buying the ad-supported version, but if you decide to remove ads later, you can make a one-time payment to cover the difference and remove the ads.

In case you missed it, Amazon announced a new entry-level Kindle last year, one that’s designed to replace the 2019 model. The latest Kindle — which starts at $99.99 — puts Amazon’s base e-reader more in line with the most recent Kindle Paperwhite, providing a number of quality-of-life improvements in the process. The new model features longer battery life, a 300ppi screen, and now charges via USB-C instead of Micro USB. It also touts 16GB of storage by default and comes in a new “denim” color, which resembles the soft blue you might associate with jeans.

You can currently buy Amazon’s newest ad-supported Kindle for $79.99 ($20 off) at Amazon with three months of Kindle Unlimited included. Best Buy and Target are also matching that price, while Amazon’s selling the ad-free model for $99.99 ($20 off). You can also buy it with a power adapter and a fabric cover starting at $109.97 ($40 off). Regardless of whether you choose the standalone model or the bundle, however, the new Kindle remains a worthwhile option if you’re looking to pick up an e-reader for less than the latest Paperwhite.

The best Kindle Kids (2022) deals

The new base Kindle wasn’t the only e-reader Amazon introduced in September. The new entry-level model has arrived alongside a new Kindle Kids, which is identical to the standard model but comes with a handful of accessories and provides age-appropriate content for younger readers who prefer digital books. Like the last-gen Kindle Kids, the new model retails for $20 more than the base model, bringing the MSRP to $119.99.

In terms of add-ons, the new Kindle Kids edition consists of four items: the device, a case, a two-year extended replacement guarantee (in the event the device breaks), and one year of Amazon Kids Plus. The latter is the biggest selling point of the device aside from the kid-friendly patterns, as it allows parents to grant their child access to a digital library of kid-friendly books like Percy Jackson and the entire Harry Potter series at no additional cost.

On the discount front, we recently saw the 2022 Kindle Kids drop to $79.99 ($40 off), which remains the e-reader’s all-time low. However, it’s currently available for $84.99 at Amazon and Target.

The best Kindle Paperwhite (2021) deals

Amazon’s latest Kindle Paperwhite is its 11th-gen model, which comes with USB-C support, longer battery life, and a larger 6.8-inch display. The e-reader launched more than a year ago, and it’s starting to receive steep discounts at retailers like Amazon and Best Buy. That said, you can also still occasionally pick up the last-gen model from 2018 at a discount.

The 2021 Kindle Paperwhite comes in three main configurations: an 8GB model with ads for $139.99, an 8GB model without ads for $159.99, and a 32GB ad-free Signature Edition for $189. 99. The latter is identical to the standard Paperwhite except it also features Qi wireless charging and a sensor that will automatically adjust the backlight when needed. Amazon has also rolled out a Kindle Paperwhite Kids Edition for $159.99, which comes bundled with a kid-friendly cover, a two-year extended replacement guarantee, and a year of Amazon Kids Plus, much like the aforementioned Kindle Kids. All 2021 models are also similar to the 2018 model in that they feature a waterproof design and Audible audiobook support.

Amazon’s latest ad-supported Paperwhite with 8GB of storage is currently available for $109.99 ($30 off), which is $15 shy of its all-time low price, at Amazon, Best Buy, and Target. The ad-free model is also available at Amazon for $129.99 ($30 off).

As for the 32GB ad-free Signature Edition, it’s available at Amazon and Best Buy right now for $144.99 ($45 off). If you prefer a bundle, Amazon is currently selling it in three configurations: one with a cork cover and a wireless charging dock starting at $239. 97 ($20 off), one with a fabric cover and a wireless charging dock for $177.97 ($72 off), and one with a leather cover and a wireless charging dock for $185.97 ($74 off).

The best Kindle Oasis (2019) deals

The Kindle Oasis is the most expensive of the lineup, starting at $249. 99. The device comes in two storage configurations, 8GB or 32GB, and like the other models, you can get it with or without ads on the lock screen.

The 2019 Kindle Oasis looks very similar to the previous model. It retains its waterproof 7-inch 300ppi E Ink display and supports Audible audiobooks via Bluetooth. However, unlike previous models, it can adjust the color temperature to a yellow-toned display, making it easier to read at night.

In the past, we’ve seen the 8GB Kindle Oasis drop to as low as $174.99, which remains the lowest price to date for the standalone configuration. Sadly, however, the ad-supported Oasis is only retailing at Amazon and Best Buy right now starting at $249.99. If you need more storage, the 32GB model is also available on Amazon with ads for $279.99 or for $299.99 without.

As for bundles, the 8GB Kindle Oasis is currently on sale in its ad-supported configuration at Amazon with a power adapter and a fabric cover for $279.97, a leather cover for $289.97, or a “premium” leather cover for $304.97, all of which are $30 off.

The best Kindle Scribe deals

The ad-free Kindle Scribe is Amazon’s biggest e-reader to date — one that also represents a departure from past Kindle models. It packs a 10.2-inch display with 300 dpi, along with the same great battery life for which Kindles have become known. What separates the Scribe from other models, however, is that it comes with one of two styli, which can be used to annotate books, doodle, or jot down notes. We found the e-reader’s note-taking capabilities lacking in our testing, but Amazon has already started to improve the software via free OTA software updates, helping bring it up to speed with other E Ink competitors.

Although we recently saw the Kindle Scribe drop to $194.99, the 16GB base model is currently only available at Amazon and Target with up to three months of Kindle Unlimited and a Basic Pen starting at $339.99, its typical retail price. The 16GB base model with the Basic Pen is also available at Amazon bundled with a fabric cover and a power adapter for $379.97 or with a leather cover and a power adapter for $399.97, both of which are $40 off. As for the model with the Premium Pen, which offers a shortcut button and a built-in eraser, it’s available at Amazon and Best Buy with 16GB of storage starting at $369.99, its full retail price.

Best Amazon Kindles in 2023

The Amazon Kindle revolutionized e-readers and comes in several versions, ranging from a basic model to a model equipped with an impressive set of features

like a book marketplace. Almost 30 years later, things have changed, but the Amazon Kindle tablet keeps that legacy alive, making it very easy to find and read tons of great literature. Many of these handy tablets make the list of today’s best e-readers. Although the Kindle selection is small, they are all slightly different and have a decent price range.

The 2022 upgrade to the base Kindle is reasonably priced, even if you have the previous generation version.

It’s not as bulletproof as its more expensive relatives, but it should last for years of careful use.

Reading is one of the best hobbies for young people, and the Kindle Paperwhite Kids makes it easy. Its main selling point is the included Kindle Kids+ subscription, which includes curated content safe for all ages. Speaking of security, its exceptionally ad-free operating system keeps manipulative marketing as far away from your little ones as possible. It also comes with a very durable casing that makes it terribly hard to damage. The only downsides are that the case makes it a bit heavier than others and it’s more expensive as the cost can’t be offset by embedded ads.

Kindle Oasis may not be new, but it’s the only recent model that still has cellular connectivity. Once you buy an Oasis, you will no longer have to pay a commission, but you will still have access to 4G for the life of the device. It also boasts a lot of nice features like automatic screen rotation which makes watching some visual novels a lot easier. In addition, the flat front panel, premium chassis, automatic backlight adjustment and extremely slim design make it a joy to use and enjoy, while an impressive 25 individual LEDs ensure constant illumination in any environment.

Pros

  • Waterproof design
  • Clear screen
  • Adjustable white heat

Cons

  • Not the best value for money

The 6. 8-inch display makes the Kindle Paperwhite different from the base model in that it fits more words on the screen, requires less page turning, and better reads large print. Color temperature control helps minimize eye strain, and the waterproof housing means it’s safe in a wide variety of environments. The most affordable version only has 8GB of storage, but you can bump it up to 16GB to get a little more. Dual-band Wi-Fi 5 and Bluetooth make it easy to find more content and enjoy audiobooks, and the mid-range price makes it appealing to avid readers on a moderate budget.

Which Amazon Kindle is better?

Each of the relatively few versions of Amazon Kindle e-readers can satisfy a rather specific set of needs. The most recent update to the 2022 base model is the best entry-level e-reader on the market, making it an easy choice for our Value for Money award. It’s a significant departure from its predecessor, with the high-resolution screen and improved battery life proving to be huge upgrades.

Mid-pack The Kindle Paperwhite Signature Edition includes tons of storage and enough high-end features to satisfy all but the most voracious readers. It’s waterproof, automatically adjusts the backlight according to lighting conditions, and has plenty of screen real estate for easy reading. It’s not that expensive, just under 20,000 for the ad-supported version.

At the top of the spectrum, Kindle Scribe is Amazon’s most advanced device, with a massive 10-inch display that’s perfect for manga and other visual novels. It also boasts a premium E-Ink Carta display, a touch layer, and a WACOM stylus, making it the first Kindle to let you take handwritten notes. Although it’s terribly expensive, it’s a class apart from the rest.

Finally, the Oasis isn’t exactly new, but it’s the only modern Kindle with standalone 4G connectivity. And if you’re looking for something nearly indestructible to encourage your kids’ reading habits, Kindle Kids is the way to go. It’s ad-free, has a durable Kindle case, and is waterproof.
