Buy the e-reader you’ve been waiting for during Black Friday Kindle deals and save a ton of money. We’re cataloging all the deals on every model of Amazon’s popular reading device. Having practically every book in existence right at your fingertips is such a freeing feeling, and during Kindle Black Friday deals you can pick one up for less than the price of a new hardcover novel. From the lead-up to the end of Cyber Monday, we’ll be tracking all the Black Friday Kindle deals available this year.
Of course, you’ll want to weigh the new deals price against the features and benefits of each model. Do you want a paperwhite screen with e-ink, or a full tablet capable of playing video? Read on to hear about which models are likely to go on sale, and how much you can expect to save.
Last year we saw Black Friday Kindle deals on every model available. The standard Kindle, which is the cheapest model (and also our favorite), dropped from $90 to only $60 almost a week before Black Friday technically started. The Kindle Oasis got a hefty $75 discount right on Black Friday. That put the most expensive Kindle model at just under $200. Amazon waited to cut the Kindle Paperwhite price until Cyber Monday, when it dropped $50 to only $160. Aside from discounts on the physical models, Amazon offered new Kindle Unlimited members two free months if they signed up on Cyber Monday.
Amazon is the king of Black Friday and Cyber Monday tech deals, so we have no doubt that every Kindle model will get some kind of discount. On top of that, a new Kindle model is about due, so Amazon might want to offload as much stock as possible before hyping up a new 2022 Kindle. The standard Kindle will definitely get the usual discount to $60, but we wouldn’t be surprised if it drops below $50 for a limited time. The Kindle Oasis will probably drop below $200, and the Paperwhite will hopefully get below $150.
It’s super important to compare deals before you jump on one. For instance, we tend to see a lot of deals on Kindle bundles. If you’re buying more than one Kindle, or need some accessories like cases or bags, these will undoubtedly save you money. Kindle and case bundles will usually save you about $30 on the RRP, however, you could save as much as $100 on some bundles. A popular deal is the Kindle Kids Edition bundle, which includes a Kindle, a kid-friendly case (usually in the shape of an animal), and a year of Amazon Kids+.
If you want to guarantee yourself a discounted Kindle, it’s best to do you shopping on Black Friday, or even in the week before. Like we mentioned above, Amazon discounted their standard Kindle for an entire week leading up to their real Black Friday Kindle deals. You can never predict these things, and once a deal is done it’s gone forever. We recommend buying the first Kindle deal you see that fits you budget. While a different model may go on sale later, the Kindle Oasis, for instance, probably won’t get a bigger discount on Cyber Monday than it will on Black Friday. Hold out for the model you want, but once it’s on sale, grab it as fast as you can.
