A lot of Kindle fans are impatiently waiting for deals on the most popular Kindle models.
Unfortunately, the Black Friday 2018 catalog in the US Amazon store, doesn’t include the deals on either the basic Kindle or the newest Kindle Paperwhite 4.
Opposite to Fire or Echo, Kindle deals were never revealed in the first wave. Amazon was keeping them as the climax of the Black Friday & Cyber Monday shopping mania.
Deals on Kindle e-readers were always offered since we track Black Friday prices. If not on Black Friday, the deals on the basic Kindle were revealed on Cyber Monday. The same with deals on the most popular model – the Paperwhite.
But will the 4th-generation Kindle Paperwhite get the price cut at all? The new model has just been released (November 7), and it sports so many new features and improvements that users will rush to get it even without the price cut.
Our predictions for Cyber Monday 2018 are:
- basic Kindle – the price goes down to $49.99, from
$79.99, you save $30. Update: there is no deal this Cyber Monday,
- Kindle Paperwhite 4 – the price is reduced to $109.99, from
$129.99, $20 off. Update: there is no deal this Cyber Monday.
Don’t wait for the better deal on the 4th-generation Paperwhite than $20 off. Keep in mind that the e-reader comes with 6-months of free Kindle Unlimited, which means you already save $60 on the subscription.
In the meantime, you can get $40 off the previous-generation Paperwhite, plus there are attractive deals on Kindle bundles:
- Top deal: $20 off Kindle Paperwhite 4 (2018) Essentials Bundle – the waterproof Paperwhite can be bought together with the original leather cover from Amazon (worth $39.99) and power adapter, for a price reduced by up to 15% depending on the Paperwhite variant. If you pick up the 8 GB, you’ll pay for the bundle $169.97, instead of
$189.97, and save $20,
- save $40 on Kindle Paperwhite (previous generation) – Amazon may not discount the 2018 Paperwhite, but the company has already revealed there will be a huge price drop on the 3rd-generation. You can get it for $79.99 (
$119.99). The same price was offered on Prime Day 2018,
- save $15 on Kindle Essentials Bundle – the bundle includes the 8th-generation Kindle e-reader with ads ($79.99), Amazon’s original Kindle case cover ($29.99), and Amazon 5W power adapter ($19.99). The regular price is
$129.97, but you can get it now for $114.97,
- get Kindle for Kids Bundle for $99.99 – a great idea for your book-loving kid. The bundle includes Kindle 8, kid-friendly case cover (available in eight fancy colors), and a 2-year worry-free guarantee. You can get it for $99.99, and keep $25 in your pocket ($124.98),
- save up to 25% on refurbished or pre-owned Kindle e-readers – if you are hunting for good deals on devices that are discontinued (for instance Kindle Voyage), checking out pre-owned models is always a good thing to do. Six models are currently offered.
