It’s only six days until main Prime Day 2018 deals arrive. Amazon is tempting current and new Prime customers by revealing deals on select products and product categories.
In a press release that’s just been sent out, we read that the price of Kindle Paperwhite will be reduced by $40 for Prime Day 2018.
It means that for the WiFi-only variant with special offers, in either Black or White, you will pay only $79.99, instead of a regular price set at
$119.99. If the same discount is applied to a Wi-Fi + 3G model (it always is), you will pay $149.99 ( $189.99) for the variant with special offers.
No such huge price cut was ever offered on the 3rd-generation Kindle Paperwhite. On Prime Day 2017, the discount was $30. The same during Black Friday & Cyber Monday 2017.
Having in mind that three Kindle models: the basic Kindle, Kindle Paperwhite, and Kindle Voyage, are not the newest kids in town, the $40 price cut on the Paperwhite may suggest we may see the lowest prices ever on the remaining two models as well.
