Amazon continues to offer deals on Amazon products that you may have hoped to score on their annual Prime Day sale that was canceled for July. This week Amazon has great deals on the Kindle, so you don’t have to wait!
The headliner of the sale is the entry-level Kindle, which is only $69.99. This is the lowest price of the past year on this highly rated e-reader. If you were waiting for Prime Day to get an e-reader or replace an older one, this is a great time to buy.
The entry-level Kindle now has a built-in front light, boasts a 167 PPI resolution and a glare-free display that performs well even in direct sunlight. This Kindle’s screen of course looks like real paper, as that has always been Amazon’s goal – to make the reading experience as much like a paper book as possible.
Also on sale is the highly regarded Kindle Paperwhite, which is on sale for only $99.99. For the extra $30 over the entry-level Kindle, the Paperwhite is waterproof, and has a flush-front display with 300 PPI resolution. It is the thinnest and lightest Paperwhite Amazon has ever made, and of course, it also looks like paper.
All Kindles can access the millions of books available on Amazon, but they can also be used for reading newspapers, or listening to audiobooks with Bluetooth headphones or a connected speaker. The memory can hold literally thousands of books that can go everywhere you go.
Using the Kindle, you can also check out books from local libraries online, something that is particularly attractive right now with so many of us trying to minimize our time out of the house.
These Kindles have built-in dictionaries, you can highlight text, and the battery lasts much longer than a tablet. The battery will last weeks on a charge, whichever model you choose. They are perfect to throw in your bag for flights, commutes, waiting rooms, or a day at the pool or beach.
There’s no need to wait for Prime Day for a Fire Tablet, either. Amazon hasn’t left those out of the sale! The entry-level 7” Fire tablet is now on sale for a crazy-low price of $34.99.
It is an inexpensive entry into the tablet market. It has a full-color screen that allows you to read books and magazines. You can also play games and watch videos from the full range of streaming services. In addition, you can use it to shop, browse the internet, or check out your social media updates.
For those of you with kids, the Fire HD8 Kids Edition is a steal right now. It is only $89.99. This thing is a full-featured tablet with a kid-proof case. Most importantly, it comes with a full two-year guarantee. If your kid breaks it, Amazon will replace it for up to two years!
It also comes with a year of Amazon FreeTime Unlimited, which gives your kids access to over 20,000 apps, games, books, videos, audible books, and educational content. Watch PBS Kids, Nickelodeon, Disney, and more.
Best of all, this is the lowest price that has ever been offered! Grab one now while the sale is live!
