What to know about Amazon Kindle deals

The Amazon Kindle is Amazon’s flagship eReader. It grants frequent readers the freedom to enjoy an entire library of novels anywhere they go—available at the touch of a button! Last year, the best Amazon Kindle deals occurred during Amazon’s Black Friday event, but there are already a few markdowns prior to the big savings this year. Keep an eye out for other Black Friday sales at places like Walmart and Target to find similar sales on popular eReaders.

For readers who are looking to build up their ebook collections before the holidays, the deals below—ahead of Amazon’s Black Friday deals—are worth checking out!

How does a Kindle work?

A Kindle is an eReader designed to digitally store hundreds of books. It’s ideal for readers who would rather spend money on Black Friday home deals than invest in more shelving for their fast-growing library. Keep checking back to see when Black Friday Amazon Kindle deals roll out—these eReaders make excellent gifts for book lovers!

What is Kindle Unlimited?

Kindle Unlimited is an Amazon subscription service that gives subscribers unlimited access to over two million titles. At $9.99 per month, it’s a steal—and unlike a library, late fees aren’t charged if a novel takes longer than planned to get through. Read more about the Kindle Unlimited program and check out Amazon’s Kindle Book Deals page.

Which Kindle should you buy?

Storage is the most important feature on a Kindle. For audiobook lovers, we recommend a higher storage capacity because audiobooks take up more space. For newer readers, a cheap Kindle with lower storage capacity does the job.

Where to buy a Kindle?

Kindles are available at several major retailers, but we recommend checking Amazon’s Kindle deals for exclusive savings on this flagship eReader.
