There will be no Black Friday price deal for the newest Kindle Scribe. But if you really want this reading and note-taking beast for Christmas, you will keep $80 in your wallet anyway.
Kindle Scribe is Amazon’s most innovative device in years. It has a large 10.2-inch high-resolution display, asymmetric Oasis-style glass front, battery-free pen, and several templates for handwritten notes.
The Scribe was announced on September 28, 2022, and was available for pre-order immediately. The launch date is November 30 – five days after Black Friday 2022.
And that’s the problem. No Amazon device had ever been offered at a reduced price before the official launch date. Don’t expect the price of Kindle Scribe to drop below $300 when you browse Amazon during the Black Friday 2022 weekend.
As you know, most Black Friday price deals are just an illusion. But consumers are still shopping a lot, even though they know they only save 5% instead of 50%. The reason they buy is that they have a reason to buy.
“I bought it on Black Friday.” No questions asked. Someone has hunted for a good deal.
So, during Black Friday 2022, Kindle Scribe will be offered at a regular price – $339.99 for the variant with 16 GB of storage and basic pen.
No savings at all? There are some good news. You will keep in your wallet even $80 if you buy Kindle Scribe for a regular price.
