Welcome to TechRadar’s dedicated page for Amazon Kindle deals. Here you’ll find the cheapest Kindle deals for all models, whether it be for the classic ereaders or the Fire tablet versions. We cross check every model of Kindle with every retailer every day to pull in the best deals so that this page is always up to date with the cheapest prices.
There are some tempting discounts this week on the Paperwhite, Voyage and 2014 models as multiple retailers have slashed their prices.
What makes a good Kindle deal?
If this is your first Kindle, you’ll be wanting to know – how do you tell a good Kindle deal when you see one? Luckily, there are so many good ones out there it’s pretty easy!
The traditional Kindle ereaders don’t have LCD screens or powerful internal components which means they’re usually a lot cheaper than tablets and phones.
The Kindle Voyage normally has a price of about $220/£170 so if you can get it for cheaper than that you’re onto a winner. After that, there isn’t a huge difference in features so it all depends how much you want to spend. If you can find the Kindle Paperwhite for under $120/£110 you’re getting a good price, while the Kindle 2014 model has a fairly static price of $80/£59 but every now and then it dips lower. With the new Kindle Oasis model arriving recently, we may see the older models’ prices drop soon.
For the tablets, the best thing to do is just work out how much you want to spend and pick up the model that sits closest to your budget. The HDX models are the good ones so do go for one of those if you can.
Here are the best Kindle deals currently available…
Kindle Oasis deals
The luxury ereader you’ve been waiting for?
The new Kindle Oasis is out now and costs $290/£270 for the basic Wi-Fi version. There’s no avoiding the obvious, that’s a lot of money for an ereader. However, dedicated ereader fans will appreciate the extra lightness and improved screen lighting. The considerably cheaper Voyage and Paperwhite models are excellent alternatives though. Have a look at our Kindle Oasis verdict for more information on why this is the future of Amazon’s Kindle range.
Kindle Paperwhite deals
The best standard Kindle ever is a value-for-money winner
The 6th generation Kindle Paperwhite is the best standard Kindle yet, it’s the most cost effective ereader on the market and it easily beats the Kobo Aura on performance and design. Amazon has managed to create a fast e-ink tablet with inventive reading apps.
Kindle Voyage deals
A worthy runner up to the Oasis
The Voyage used to be the most expensive Kindle around before the Oasis arrived, but at least we’re seeing the price drop now. Amazon’s Voyage is one of the best ebook readers available. It’s more compact than other Kindles and the screen is sharper than the cheaper models. A flush display makes the device easier to keep clean and carry around, the screen’s resolution is the highest it has ever been, and it even comes with an ace origami-style case (at additional cost).
Amazon Kindle (2014) deals
The first touchscreen Kindle is now an absolute bargain
The Amazon Kindle (2014) is a very fine ereader. It was the first model to come with a touchscreen, a major change and it’s hugely beneficial. So much so that if you don’t currently have a touchscreen ereader it’s definitely worth upgrading to. You might think you’re fine with buttons, but everything is just so much easier and faster when you can tap the screen.
Amazon Fire HDX 8.9 deals
The premium version of the above two budget tablets
Amazon also does touchscreen tablet versions of the Kindle. The latest ones have dropped the name Kindle, but it’s still the same thing – a Kindle Fire which runs on Android software and has all the same Amazon features baked in by default. If you’re looking for a family tablet that everyone can share, and you’re happy to dive into the Amazon ecosystem and sign up for Amazon Prime, maybe even pick up a Fire TV as well, then the Fire HDX 8.9 is probably the best tablet for you.
Amazon Fire HD 6 deals
The latest tablet version of the Kindle Fire
One of the most enticing tablets to come from Amazon, mixing efficient integration with the Prime services and a compact footprint that makes it easy to drop in your bag, this 6-incher is no tablet king, but it does what it sets out to well. It’s quite small though, so if 6-inches is too tiny you could have a look at the options below.
Amazon Fire 7 deals
The 7-inch version of Amazon’s latest Kindle tablet
Sitting at the budget end of Amazon’s Kindle tablet range, the Fire 7 is the same as the HD 6 only slightly bigger. In terms of a content delivery system, the fire 7 is absolutely perfect. Getting to your favourite TV shows, films or books couldn’t be easier and, if you’re prepared to pay for a subscription, you can get even more from it. Likewise, the ability to have different profiles – some for the kids – through Amazon FreeTime is really helpful.
Kindle Fire HDX 7 deals
Last year’s main Kindle tablet, now available with some great deals
For the right kind of customer, the Kindle Fire HDX is the perfect tablet. And who is that customer? Someone who doesn’t want to do much more than consume content on their tablet. For the customisation you give up, you gain simplicity and ease of use. We’d like to call this the sort of tablet you give to someone who is less than tech savvy, but those devices don’t usually have such good hardware. There’s not single junk part on the Kindle Fire HDX that’ll spoil your experience with all of Amazon’s rich content. Features like X-Ray for movies, downloadable Prime videos and Mayday will have the most ardent Nexus fan feeling rather jealous. This model has become rare in the UK, so most deals will be for US customers only.
