It’s just a teaser before the 2015 holiday shopping peak that’s coming in the next few weeks.
Amazon has just announced the 3-Day Sale on Kindle. Three models are included, each one costs $20 below its list price:
- Kindle Paperwhite,
- Kindle for Kids Bundle.
You’ll have to quickly decide whether to enter the deal or wait for the next one. The 3-Day Sale ends on Wednesday, October 21, 2015, on midnight, Eastern Daylight Time.
1. Kindle – $59.99
The basic Kindle bears the sale price of $59.99, instead of
$79.99. $20 is one-fourth of its original price. However, the discounted Kindle is still $10 above the regular price of the cheapest Fire tablet – Fire 7, introduced a couple of weeks ago.
For the version without special offers, you’ll also pay $20 less than usual – $79.99 instead of $99.99.
With rumors that the budget Kindle will get a refreshment this autumn, it’s possible that the price of the 2014 version would be further decreased. The decision is yours.
2. Kindle Paperwhite – $99.99
Kindle Paperwhite costs $99.99 (
$119.99) after the cut. The version on sale is WiFi-only with ads. Currently, there is no other version offered via main channels on Amazon.
Although it’s not promoted by Amazon, the international version of Kindle Paperwhite costs now also $20 less. When you order it now, you’ll pay $119.99 (
It’s not clear whether the lower price is a part of the 3-Day Sale or will stay longer. We will know it on Thursday morning.
3. Kindle for Kids Bundle – $79.99
Kindle for Kids Bundle is $79.99. It’s $20 down from its recent price,
$99.99, but we have to remember that the launch price was $139.99.
The bundle, specially designed for kids, includes:
- basic Kindle with special ads,
- 2-year accident protection provided by SquareTrade,
- kid-friendly cover available in five colors (Black, Dark Blue, Green, Pink, and Purple).
For me, this is the least attractive deal, because it’s the least appealing product. If I were a kid, I’d have no doubt to choose a tablet over an e-reader. Especially now, when Fire Kids Edition costs under $100.
