So instead of filling the bookshelf, you’d like to cut corners and costs by securing an Amazon Kindle deal? We don’t blame you, the Kindle e-reader is a magnificent piece of kit for the price you pay – with enhanced lighting, optimal storage space, Wi-Fi connectivity and even waterproofing, plus Bluetooth functionality on selected models. Whether you’re a casual reader or a book-blitzing extraordinaire, we’ve compiled the lowest prices on the web to help you catch up on your reading affordably.
You’ve likely checked our Amazon discount codes page for Kindle offers and are curious if any other retailers can top their price, in which case you’re in luck. The most popular electronics retailers love to vie for the lowest priced e-readers – meaning the best Kindle deals are always changing. To cut out the middle man, we’ve researched the cheapest tech deals on each Kindle variant, so you don’t have to. On a side note, if Amazon Prime Day is soon on the horizon (traditionally hosed in June/July), there may be a Prime Day Kindle waiting for you for as little as half price - so keep an eye on the calendar!
As the 10th generation model of the e-reader that started the trend, the standard Kindle comes out far cheaper than more premium models and can be more affordable than competitors’ own e-readers. You’ll get 8GB of storage along with a stable resolution of 167ppi, backed by 4 LED front lights. These lights are actually a new addition to this generation (2019) – making it a far more desirable choice over previous models. You can also utilise Bluetooth to listen to audiobooks from Audible, making this an ideal pick for budget shoppers, casual readers and audiobook listeners alike.
Be aware that the lowest-priced version comes with “Special Offers” included, which basically boils down to sponsored ads when your device’s screen is locked or on sleep mode. You can negate this by paying a little extra for your Kindle to come without the feature. This base version is also the only one besides the kids model not to feature waterproofing, making it unsuitable for areas like the beach, spa or bathroom.

By far the most popular version, the Kindle Paperwhite is the mid-range option – introducing innovative improvements without increasing the price by too much. More lightweight and with a sleeker design than the standard Kindle, the Paperwhite is also the first to introduce waterproofed casing as standard – so you can bring it on holiday or anywhere near water without worry.
The Kindle Paperwhite also increases screen resolution to 300ppi for easier reading, as well as offering a 32GB version besides the 8GB one for bookworms. If that wasn’t enough, the Paperwhite can also include a 3G option alongside its Wi-Fi, allowing readers to browse and buy books away from home – a great feature for anyone who takes their reading with them. You pay slightly more for the 3G version but then there are no additional fees for using it. All in all, this is the best value Kindle on the market for what it provides – especially when bought with a good promo code.

Expanding your kids’ reading potential likely won’t come more reasonably priced than the Amazon Kindle for kids. Not simply because it comes quite well priced for the features it includes, but because each one includes a 1-year subscription to Amazon Kids+ as standard, giving them access to thousands of kids’ books and magazines from the get-go. After the year is up it’s only £1.99 a month, making it possibly the cheapest way to source children’s literature. From a technical standpoint, it offers the same resolution, storage and lighting as the standard Kindle, however the icing on the cake is the extended 2-year worry-free warranty against accidental damage – an absolute must-have for toddlers handling premium tech.

The all-singing, all-dancing Kindle Oasis should be the reading companion of any dedicated bookworm. Introducing subtle but significant improvements to make the reading experience all the more enjoyable, the Kindle Oasis puts comfort at the forefront, with its own self-adjusting lighting, a more comfortable ergonomic layout and page-turning buttons to immerse yourself in literature more easily and for longer. Though the resolution remains the same as the Paperwhite, ease of reading is still enhanced thanks to a larger 7-inch screen (all other models are 6 inches) and a whopping 25 LED lights compared to the Paperwhite’s 5.
Of course, you can expect the price to increase significantly to match these changes. However, the right Kindle Oasis deal can lower a 32GB or mobile-connective model to the normal price of a bog-standard 8GB variant. Moreover, the increased number of LEDs, auto-adjusting lights and larger screen size will do wonders for your eyes if you like reading for extended periods, so accept nothing less if you love your literature.
