Just like in previous years, to celebrate National Reading Month, Amazon slashes prices of current Kindle models.
The discount is the same for all devices participating in a promotion, ranging from the basic Kindle to Kindle Voyage, and it’s set to $20.
What’s interesting, not only versions for the US market are discounted, but also the ones available for international customers of Amazon.com.
You can check out all current deals in Amazon Gold Box, and below we list the details for the Kindle e-readers.
One remark before the list: the deal is limited in time, and it means it may end sooner than at the end of March.
Kindle models for US customers
The offer is similar to Valentine’s Day or Mother’s Day deals from Amazon. The prices are slashed for all models except Kindle Oasis, and the base discount is $20.
- basic Kindle – the version with special offers is discounted by $20 (25%), and costs $59.99 instead of
- Kindle Paperwhite – if you need the e-reader with the glowing screen to read in the evening, you should go for this model. The price is slashed now to $99.99 (

- Kindle Voyage – not always this model is included in massive promotions – but this time it is. You won’t save too much, only $20, but anyway it’s a saving. The current price is $179.99, reduced from
- Kindle for Kids Bundle – this one is addressed to children, and includes the 2016 Kindle, protective case, and a 2-year guarantee. Deal price: $79.99. The list price is
$124.98, but the bundle is usually available for $99.99, so the real saving is the same as in other models: $20.
What’s not visible in the Kindle Store, but can be found in the Deals section of the Amazon store, is that two other Kindle bundles are also discounted. For Kindle Paperwhite Essentials Bundle, with cases in seven bright colors, you’ll pay $139.97, instead of
$179.97, and save $40. The bundle based on Kindle Voyage is available now for $234.97 ( $279.97).
Kindle models for international customers
Kindle models can also be purchased by foreign customers of the US Kindle Store. Their prices are higher by $20 respectively, so in the March 2017 deal, you can buy the international version of the Kindle for its US price.
Plus, there are the extra costs of shipping and handling. Import fees may be applied as well, and that depends on where you live.
So, which international Kindles you can grab in the current deal? Here they are:
- Kindle 8 International – the saving of $20 what makes a 20% discount. You’ll pay $79.99 instead of the regular price of
