If there’s one thing that we’ll say about Amazon, it’s that the retailer does like to put its products on sale. A lot.
And it’s not just Amazon’s smart devices, such as its Echo speakers and Fire streaming sticks, that you’ll frequently find on sale throughout the year. You’ll often also find the company’s celebrated Kindle range on offer, too.
Amazon’s very first Kindle was launched back in 2007 (in technology terms, that’s the Cretaceous Era), and several generations of evolution later, is the unrivalled industry-leading e-reader. You’ll find there are several models to choose from, including the Kindle, Kindle Paperwhite and Kindle Oasis – and if they’re on sale, they’ll all be listed below. And you’ll also often find promotional offers on Amazon’s Kindle Unlimited subscription service. To find out more, head to our what is Kindle Unlimited explainer.

Amazon Kindle |
£69.99 £54.99 (save £15 or 21%)
This is technically speaking the standard Kindle e-reader – but it’s still a remarkable device. With an adjustable front light, glare-free display, compatibility with Audible, and the ability to highlight, translate, and define text, there’s never been so many different ways to read a book.
As a Kindle, there is, of course, access to millions of books, with enough memory to carry thousands around at any one time, as well as Bluetooth connectivity in order to listen to audiobooks. Amazon Prime members can also access over a thousand books for free.

Kindle Paperwhite (2018) |
£119.99 £99.99 (save £20 or 17%)
With twice the memory of the standard Kindle and an improved resolution, the Kindle Paperwhite packs a lot into its thin frame. It’s also completely waterproof, lasting as long as 60 minutes while submerged – meaning as well as protection from spilt drinks, you can read at the beach, pool or in the bath without worry.
You can also shell out a bit more for a version with free 4G connectivity – that’s right, internet connectivity wherever you go completely free of charge.

Kindle Kids Edition |
£99.99 £69.99 (save £30 or 30%)
The children’s version of the Kindle is marketed with concerned parents in mind: this device is all about reading, rather than screen time per se. You won’t find any ads, games, videos or other non-literary distractions on the Kindle Kids editions – it’s all about your little ones focusing on their reading.
With this e-reader, you’re able to set both educational goals and parental locks if needs be. A year-long subscription of Kids+ is included, which grants your children access to thousands of hugely popular books including Geek Girl, Gangsta Granny and, yes, Harry Potter.

Kindle Unlimited | Up to 3 months for free
Think of Kindle Unlimited as the Netflix of books: rather than pay a one-off cost for permanent ownership of a book, audiobook or magazine, you have over a million titles to ‘borrow’ in unlimited supply for the monthly rate of £7.99. Except that right now, you can either sign up for two or three months of Kindle Unlimited for absolutely nothing before you automatically move over to the monthly fee.
What are Kindle Daily Deals?
Amazon runs all sorts of Daily Deals across its site – you’ll find a wide variety of products on offer for a limited 24-hour window. This extends to the Kindle Store, where you’ll find titles that are in the typical e-book £7.99-£8.99 category drop to as little as £1.99 or even £0.99.
This sort of price-dropping has the literary establishment slightly aghast at the reducing of books to such drastic bargain prices – but for the rest of us, it’s a great opportunity to try a new book or author at no great investment. You can take a look at today’s Kindle Daily Deals over at the Amazon website.
