We are working on an Amazon Prime Day 2018 price watch list, and we’ve just spotted something Kindle fans would love to hear.
The price of Kindle Voyage has been lowered from
$199.99 to $149.99 for the Wi-Fi-only variant with special offers.
The new price is displayed as the regular one. There is no information about any deal or a limited-time special offer the Voyage is a part of.
The price change must have happened after Father’s Day 2018, so it’s either today or yesterday. During the weekend, the price of the model was still set at $199.99.
We know it for sure as we have prepared and updated an overview of deals for Father’s Day 2018, and Kindle Voyage was not on the list. Well, the model hardly gets into any deals. Last time its price was slashed to $169.99 as a part of Kindle 10th Anniversary Deals in October 2017. Kindle Voyage Essentials Bundle was offered for Cyber Monday 2017 with a price lowered by $25 (and now, as the price of the e-reader has been cut, it’s further down to $229.97).
The only chance to grab Kindle Voyage at a reduced price for Father’s Day 2018 was to visit Amazon Warehouse Deals and get the certified refurbished device. Its price was the same as the new regular price – $149.99.
Kindle Voyage is already four years old. It was released in October 2014 and was the first e-reader with 300 ppi display resolution. It was the most advanced and thinnest Kindle at that time, offering the brightest front light – by 39% brighter than in Kindle Paperwhite.
The device features a unique way to turn pages, called Page Press, with custom-designed force sensors located under page-turn buttons.
