Amazon discounts Kindle e-readers by up to 21%


If you’ve had your eye on one of Amazon’s premium e-readers but haven’t pulled the trigger yet, today might be the day to do so. As part of a large-scale sale on various own-brand Amazon devices, the Kindle Oasis, Kindle Paperwhite Signature Edition and standard Kindle Paperwhite all benefit from significant discounts.

The Kindle Oasis is currently $200, which is $50 less than its usual list price. The Kindle Paperwhite Signature Edition, which is probably the best eReader on the market right now, is down to $150 (from $190 before), while the standard Kindle Paperwhite is $110 (usually $140).

The Kindle Oasis isn’t discounted as often as its counterparts, making it a good time to consider the premium eReader. With its larger 300 dpi screen, physical page-turning buttons, 25 front LEDs, auto-rotating pages, the Oasis offers features you won’t find on other Kindle devices.

As for the Kindle Paperwhite Signature Edition, it’s the first and only Kindle to support wireless charging and it’s 10% brighter than previous Paperwhite models. A built-in sensor can automatically adjust the screen brightness based on the ambient light around you, making nighttime reading more comfortable for your eyes. Like the Kindle Oasis, it also has an IPX8 water resistance rating which makes it perfect for reading in the bath or by the pool.

Amazon updated the Kindle Paperwhite last September, adding a larger 6.8-inch 300ppi glare-free screen. It’s also faster, allowing for faster page turns, and comes with 8GB of storage, USB-C fast charging, and an IPX8 water resistance rating.

While Prime Day saw plenty of Amazon devices — including Kindles — fall back to historically low levelstoday’s sale is within reach of these prices.
