Kindle prices slashed ahead of Amazon event and surprise new Prime Day sale


Ahead of an event later this week, where Amazon could reveal new devices, the online retail giant has slashed prices on a range of Kindle ereaders. The Kindle Paperwhite, Paperwhite Signature Edition and Kindle Oasis have all received a big price cut with the deals announced on the same day that Amazon revealed it will be holding its second Prime Day sale of this year. If you’re not already an Amazon Prime member but want to grab one of the upcoming bargains that will be available from October 11 then you can sign-up for a free trial below.

One of the most eye-catching discounts available at the moment is on the Kindle Paperwhite, which has long been the best all-round ereader on the market.

Usually, the Kindle Paperwhite is priced from £129.99, but right now you can get this entry-level model with ads for £94.99. This popular device features a 6.8-inch display with thinner borders and an adjustable warm light which makes reading at night less of a strain on your eyes. There’s also up to 10 weeks of battery life and it features 20 percent faster page turns compared to the previous generation.

Besides this standard Paperwhite, the new 16GB model has also got a price cut, with things reduced from £149.99 to £114.99. This version still keeps all the same features but offers twice the space for your favourite books.

If you fancy something a little more flash then the Kindle Paperwhite Signature Edition – which adds wireless charging, USB-C support, 32GB of storage and a front light that automatically adjusts – has also been reduced from £179.99 to £144.99.

If you’re wondering whether forking out all that extra cash is worth it over the regular Paperwhite then check out our full Paper Signature Edition review.

Finally, there is a money-saving deal on top of the range Kindle Oasis. This device comes with a generous seven-inch display and page-turning buttons to make it easier to use. It’s also fully waterproof for reading in the bath and includes a pin-sharp 300ppi flush-front Paperwhite display.

This premium ereader is usually priced from £229.99 but is available from £179.99 right now.

All the ereaders on sale are also available without ads (for £10 more) plus you can also claim three months free Kindle Unlimited on a range of Amazon devices.

Kindle Unlimited lets you access a library of over a million ebooks along with magazines and books with Audible narration all for a monthly price of £7.99.

And right now a deal is running that lets you get six months Kindle Unlimited for half price.

Don’t forget, Amazon is holding a major launch event on September 28 where new devices will be unveiled and there’s the chance of bigger savings when the next Prime launches on October 11.
