Amazon has added to Gold Box a couple of deals for Kindle e-readers and Fire devices in a back to school promotion, where you can save $20 on each device.
First of all, the 2016 Kindle is $20 off. The device was released in July, and it already had been discounted for Prime Day 2016 (available for Prime members only).
Now, the price cut for Kindle 8 can be enjoyed by any customer, no matter where she lives, in the US or abroad.
- Kindle 8 for US customers – both colors versions – black and white – are being discounted. You’ll pay $59.99, instead of
$79.99, and save 25% on the version with special offers. The version without ads is $79.99 ( $99.99),
- Kindle 8 for foreign customers – international customers also save $20 – the all-new Kindle costs now $79.99, instead of a regular price of
$99.99. Please note that there is still only a black version available for customers from abroad.
The all-new basic Kindle is not the only Amazon e-reader offered in back to school promotion. You can also save on two other devices:
- Kindle Paperwhite – the e-reader is also discounted by $20. The cheapest version (Wi-Fi only, with ads) costs $99.99 (
$119.99). the same $20 price reduction is applied to all other versions. The Wi-Fi + 3G with no ads costs $189,99,
- Amazon Fire Kids Edition – the Fire 7 tablet which comes with a 2-year worry-free guarantee and a kid-proof case is discounted by $20, to $69.99 for the 8 GB version.
The back to school deal is a limited-time offer and it ends on August 21, 2016. Therefore, you won’t be able to save on the white version of Kindle Paperwhite, as it will be back on stock on August 26.
