June is a good time to start thinking about which books to take on holiday.
Just like for Black Friday and Cyber Monday, we are launching a list of all deals ebook lovers would find interesting during summer.
You’ll find here the deals from three major ebook ecosystems: Kindle, Kobo, and Nook. Besides deals on ebooks, we will also include most attractive promotions for the devices and accessories.
Before the list, a short reminder that you can check out ebook deals every day:
Kindle Daily Deal – each day a few titles are offered at prices reduced to $0.99 – $2.99. The average saving is between 40% and 80%. The Kindle Daily Deal home page is also a great starting point to discover all other Kindle deals that are currently offered.
Nook Daily Find – one or two titles are heavily discounted – one is the main deal, and the other book is a deal from a selected category, such a romance, mystery, or young adult. Usually, the price is cut by no less than 50%.
Kobo Daily Deal – you can expect the prices from $0.99 to $2.99, reduced by more than 50%. Usually, one book is being offered. Sometimes you can also grab an Extra Daily Deal.
Kindle summer deals 2017
This deal is aimed at everyone who considers buying the Kindle to gift it for Father’s Day. The price cut of $20 refers to all models included in the promotion: the basic Kindle, Kindle Paperwhite, and Kindle Voyage.
Please note that, unlike Kindle promotions for Mother’s Day, the price of the top-shelf Oasis model is not reduced.
- save $20 on Kindle 8 – it’s the usual saving you can get on the entry-level Kindle (please keep in mind that it’s the model without the front-lighted screen). Before Father’s Day, the price is set to $59.99, and you save one-fourth of the list price,
- save $20 on Kindle Paperwhite – the most popular Kindle model is available in the coming days for $99.99. Its price is from
$119.99and the saving is 17%,
- save $20 on Kindle Voyage – the $20 price cut on the $200 device means you’ll pay$179.99, and save 10% of the list price. It’s not the most attrative Kindle Voyage deal we’ve seen.
The promotion is limited in time, you’ll be able to enjoy the reduced prices until Father’s Day 2017.
Are you going to buy the Kindle to enjoy the summer reading to the fullest? Are you subscribing to Amazon Prime? If the answer to both questions is “yes,” consider waiting until Amazon Prime Day 2017. This promotional event is held every year at the beginning of July.
During Prime Day 2016, subscribers of this multi-benefit program from Amazon were able to save $30 not $20 on the basic Kindle (which was the new model at that time), and up to $75 on other Kindle e-readers.
Save $20 on Kindle bundles
In May 2017, Amazon introduced the new kind of bundle that would make a great travel companion for everyone who loves reading books.
Kindle Travel Bundles include one of the three e-readers (Paperwhite, Voyage, and Oasis), a power adapter, a case made of genuine leather, and a travel bag.
The last item on the list, the fashionable and functional canvas bag from Caseable is worth $69.99, but when you buy the bundle, you get it for free. Therefore, the default saving on each Kindle Travel Bundle is $69.99.
I was wondering how much time would it take Amazon to start offering even lower prices on the new bundle. And there it is!
You can save extra $20 on the Kindle Paperwhite Travel Bundle. The current price is set at $179.96, compared to the list price of
$269.96, and you’ll keep in your pocket as much as $90.
You can also save $20 on the Kindle for Kids Bundle. The bundle includes the basic Kindle model (the one without the front-lighted display), the protective case in one of five colors, and a 2-year worry-free guarantee. You can get it for $79.99 in the coming days.
This is a limited-time offer with no due date, so it may end quite soon.
If you are going to buy Kindle Paperwhite, you can bundle it with Kindle Unlimited, and get 6 months of the ebook subscription for free.
When you buy the e-reader and the subscription separately, the total cost after 6 months is
$179.93. The bundle will let you pay only for the Paperwhite – $119.99. The saving is $60, but in fact, it’s $50, as there is a one-month free trial for Kindle Unlimited anyway.
The deal is valid for the version of Kindle Paperwhite sold in the US. The bundle includes the black version of the Paperwhite, with Wi-Fi and special offers – there is no way to customize the model.
The list of Monthly Kindle Deals is always a great destination for everyone who hunts for good deals on Kindle ebooks.
During summer months, the list (that is being updated on the first day of every month) is usually more attractive. It doesn’t refer to prices (they are always between $0.99 and $4.99), but to the selection of titles.
In June, there are over 1,000 Kindle books included in the promotion. As usual, the titles published by Amazon imprints are leading the way when it comes to popularity.
Kobo summer deals 2017
Kobo Aura Edition 2 was introduced in September 2016. The e-reader is an improved version of the classic Aura released in 2013. It features the 1024 × 768 px display with ComfortLight and the 4 GB internal memory.
Users in the United Kingdom can now buy Kobo Aura Edition 2 for £79.99, instead of
£99.99. VAT is included in the price. The offer ends on June 23, 2017.
This deal is available only for customers living in the UK. When any new promotion for Kobo starts running, we’ll add it to this list.
Kobo offers a special promotion addressed to anyone who wants to give dad the ebook for Father’s Day.
The list of Father’s Day Finds for $1.99 includes some 20 titles – not as many as in the Barnes & Noble, but they are equally attractive.
If your dad is interested in music, you’ll find here two books that are worth recommending. Steve Turner’s Beatles ’66: The Revolutionary Year is “a riveting look at the transformative year in the lives and careers of the legendary group.”
There is also Dylan Goes Electric! Critic Elijah Wald takes a look at the day Dylan “went electric” at the Newport Folk Festival.
Nook summer deals 2017
Currently, no deals are offered for Nook GlowLight or Nook-branded tablets. As soon as they are announced, we’ll add them below, and share the news across our social media.
Barnes & Noble offers almost 200 Nook books at reduced prices. They are specially selected for Father’s Day 2017.
Among the featured titles, you’ll find several nonfiction books, including the ones covering World War II. The classic D-Day, June 6, 1944 by Stephen E. Ambrose can be now bought for $3.99. You’ll pay only $1.99 for Steve Turner’s Beatles ’66: The Revolutionary Year.
The books cost usually between $1.99 and $3.99, and some are even 70% off. The deal ends on June 19, 2017.
The list of Nook books under $5 is being refreshed every two weeks.
Right now, you can find on the list the books by John le Carré, Steve Martini, and Sue Grafton.
