Best Prime Day Kindle deals
Prime Day is one of the best days to shop for a Kindle, with deep discounts on all makes and models. Even at its suggested price of $90, the base model e-reader offers plenty of storage and capabilities for most, but Amazon's Prime Day deal makes it even more affordable. Prime Day also brings some amazing prices on the higher-end models, like the gorgeous Kindle Paperwhite which drops to base model price levels. Here are all of the best Prime Day Kindle deals for all of the current Kindles.
Kindle (10th generation)
The entry-level Kindle is excellent for casual readers with its affordable price tag, 8GB of storage, and durable design. This classic Kindle has a six-inch glare-free display with Front Light that works great indoors and out.
Kindle Kids Edition
The Kindle Kids Edition includes everything that we love about the base Kindle, plus it comes with a kid-friendly case, one year of Amazon Kids+, and a two-year warranty. At its special Prime Day pricing, the extra perks with this Kindle make it a great deal even for adults.
The Kindle Paperwhite has a sharper and brighter display with almost twice the number of pixels-per-inch than the base Kindle, and it has an IPX8 water resistance rating. Its Prime Day price matches the non-sale price of the base Kindle, which is a fantastic deal for a screen this good.
The Kindle Oasis is the top of the line e-reader, with a larger, seven-inch display that sports a whopping 25 LEDs that deliver a great reading experience through automatic lighting adjustments. The Oasis is also the only Kindle still available with those lovely physical page turn buttons.
Which Kindle should you get?
Regardless of which Kindle you choose, reading books digitally will never be the same thanks to the incredible battery life and those special eye-friendly screens. For casual readers, we recommend the base, ad-supported Kindle, as it offers the most bang for your buck. Starting below $100, the base Kindle sports plenty of storage with 8GB on-board, a glare-free six-inch display with adjustable Front Light, Bluetooth for Audible books, and a battery that lasts for weeks. The entry-level Kindle is also the base for the Kindle Kids Edition, which throws in a case and 2-year warranty for just a few bucks more.
If you want to take your books along for all of your travels, then go with the Kindle Paperwhite. The Paperwhite has a screen tuned for crystal clear reading even in sunlight with a pixel density of 300ppi that is almost double that of the base model. The Paperwhite has an IPX8 water resistance rating that allows it to survive for up to 60 minutes in six feet of water, which is perfect for lounging around by the pool. The Paperwhite also comes in cellular models that can download the latest titles directly from Amazon without entering a Wi-Fi password.
Plan to do all of your reading on the Kindle? Then the Kindle Oasis is your best bet. The Oasis has the largest display in the line, coming in at seven-inches, and it has a whopping 25 LEDs that automatically adjust lighting levels based on the environment. The Oasis is also the only Kindle still available with old-school page turn buttons if you are into that sort of thing. If all of that weren't enough, the Oasis includes the same storage capacity, weeks-long battery life, and waterproof rating as the Paperwhite.
