Never before the price of Oasis was slashed to under $200. Plus, you can grab the newest Kindle for $69, and Paperwhite for $99.
Since the launch of first-generation Kindle Oasis in April 2016, Amazon’s top-shelf model was offered at a reduced price only once.
It happened on Prime Day 2017, and it applied only to the most expensive version with cellular connectivity. The deal was rather symbolic – 14% off the list price.
It has just changed. You will see Kindle Oasis among other Amazon deals for Father’s Day 2019. The price of the sophisticated 7-inch waterproof Kindle falls deep under the water. Instead of the regular
$249.99, you can pay today only $199.99. It means there is $50 to save – just enough to grab an original Amazon Kindle Oasis leather cover ($49.99) in either Black or Merlot.
The 2nd-generation Kindle Oasis was introduced in October 2017, so this fall it will be already two years old. This must be the reason it goes on sale right now. We can expect a similar price cut during Prime Day 2019.
The Oasis is the first waterproof Kindle. It meets the IPX8 water resistance rating, and it means you can put it two meters under water for one hour without causing any damage.
The high-end Amazon e-reader is also the first one to offer built-in Audible support. Its 7-inch display has an increased resolution of 1680 × 1264 pixels. A unique feature – asymmetric design – is intended to shift the center of gravity to one side, the one intended to be held in hand.
With all these features, Kindle Oasis looks like a perfect gift for a tech-savvy father who has seen and tested a lot of trendy gadgets already.
Besides the Oasis, two other Kindle models are on sale, as well.
The newest entry-level Kindle is $20 off. It’s the same deal like the one offered for Mother’s Day. The newest basic Kindle sports an adjustable front light. It has a better screen and is available in either Black or White. Its regular price is set at
$89.99, but for Father’s Day 2019 you will pay only $69.99.
A Father’s Day price of Kindle Paperwhite is $99.99. You save $30 (
$129.99), and it means the deal is less attractive than on Mother’s Day. Amazon’s most popular e-reader model is waterproof, has an edge-to-edge front glass, and supports Audible audiobooks.
Is it worth buying the Kindle right now or wait a few weeks for Prime Day? If you are not focused on getting a Kindle for your dad, I suggest waiting. The deals should be more attractive than what you can get today. Here are our Kindle price predictions for Prime Day 2019.
