Kindle deals: How to get the best e-reader offers and daily deals
Now available for £84.99, the Kindle can hold thousands of books at one time and is a great option for when you want to snuggle up with a good read this autumn.
Autumn is here, school is beginning again and it won't be long before the nights start getting longer. We all know what that means: it's time to light some candles, make yourself a cup of tea, and curl up to read your Kindle.
Kindles are a divisive subject among readers and techies – you may prefer the feel of paper and the smell of a new book.
But you have to admit it: a physical copy can be a nightmare to carry around with you, and if you're reading several books or headed on a long trip, the Kindle is an ideal way of taking a whole library with you in the palm of your hand. We're taking a look at the very best deals available on Kindles right now.
The 2022 release of the Amazon Kindle can hold thousands of books at one time. It will last for six weeks on a single charge, comes with built-in backlighting so you can read in the dark, has a six-inch 300 PPI high-resolution display, and will even support audiobooks via Audible.
For one day only, Amazon is offering customers £5 off when you spend £25 or more.
To celebrate Amazon turning 25 in the UK, all customers can get the discount by adding AMAZONUK25 at the checkout.
The offer ends at 11:59pm on Friday 15th September so we recommend acting fast to make the most of the deal.
There's a selection of different Kindle models to choose from, too, including Paperwhite and Oasis; each has its own unique features, even if the basic functionality across the entire line-up remains pretty much the same.
In this guide – which breaks down the best Kindle deals and offers this month – we'll show you models with ads, which will keep the cost down. Kindle ads are usually found via banners on the homepage and on the screensaver; they're typically personalised and not too intrusive.
However, if you don't want to see any ads, then you can do so by paying around 10 to 20 quid more. Simply choose the 'without ads' model to get rid of them.
Where to buy the Amazon Kindle
While the e-readers are an Amazon product – and the Amazon website often has the best stock levels as a result – the devices are available at a range of UK retailers:
- Shop Kindle devices at Currys
- Shop Kindle devices at John Lewis
- Shop Kindle devices at Very
- Shop Kindle devices at Argos
