Best Kindle Black Friday deals we've seen in the UK so far
Have you read the latest news from Amazon HQ? It's Black Friday week and that can only mean great savings are live across Kindles and e-readers. Here are the best deals we've found so far.
Today (Friday 17th November), Amazon launched its Black Friday week sale, which means there are already hundreds of great discounts to be had across technology, toys, homeware, and more.
Among this sea of slashed prices, we’ve found a number of savings on Amazon Kindles, with discounts of up to £80.
So, what could we do but put them all together in this piece, featuring the best deals we’ve found so far?
Here, you’ll find major savings across all the many models of Kindle, and we’ve included links from multiple retailers including Very, John Lewis, and Argos – so you don’t just have to head to Amazon every time!
Plus, here at RadioTimes.com we’re a big fan of e-readers – we even have a regular best Kindle deals page that we update every month which can tell you all about the different models and versions at your disposal.
But, just to give you a brief recap here, there are five main types of Kindle: the standard 2022 model, the Paperwhite, the Scribe, the Oasis and Kids. Each of these models comes in different storage sizes and has either an ads or no ads option. To make things easier in this article, we’ll be solely focusing on the versions with ads, but know that every no ads model is around £10 to £20 more expensive.
So, off we go into a world of fiction and savings.

Short answer: No.
Long answer: It’s true that Amazon runs regular deals on its Kindles and e-readers throughout the year, but it’s unlikely that prices will dip this low again before Christmas, and, although we still have a week to go until Black Friday, we know from experience that Amazon likes to go early on this type of deal.
So, if you’re looking to buy for a Christmas present, or your New Year's Resolution is to read more, we’d recommend buying now.

What’s the deal: The Kindle Paperwhite signature edition has been lowered from £179.99 to £144.99, saving you £35.

Kindle Paperwhite Kids
What’s the deal: The Kindle Paperwhite for kids has also been discounted, now sitting at £124.99 rather than £159.99.
Why we chose it: One of our favourite parts of the Kindle Paperwhite for kids is that it comes with different fonts to aid with dyslexia. It also shares the adjustable lighting, speeds, and durability of its parent model, making it thoroughly kid-proof.
What’s the deal: Get the Kindle Oasis for £55 less as it’s now been lowered to £174.99.
Why we chose it: The main difference about the Kindle Oasis is that it comes with an ergonomic design and page turn buttons, making it simple to read with one hand. It’s also got a larger 7-inch display, faster page turning and more!
What’s the deal: Last but not least is the Kindle Scribe, now on sale for £249.99 as opposed to its previous £329.99 – that’s an £80 saving.
Why we chose it: With the Kindle Scribe, you’re getting an e-reader and tablet all in one. It comes with a Basic Pen which you can use to jot down your thoughts and make notes straight onto the eBook itself. Perfect for book clubs or if you’re studying at university, and now it’s 24% cheaper.
