Basic Kindle on Sale for $49 Today Only


Amazon is continuing to offer discounts on Kindles as Christmas draws near.

Today only Amazon has marked their entry-level Kindle down to $49. That’s $20 less than what it normally sells for, and is the lowest it has gone this holiday shopping season, matching Best Buy’s Black Friday price.

The $20 discount only applies to the Special Offers version, not the ad-free model or the international model. If you want to get rid of the ads and special offers you can just pay the extra $20 after buying the Kindle.

Unlike the Kindle Paperwhite, the basic Kindle doesn’t have a touchscreen or frontlight, but it does have an E Ink screen, 2GB of memory, physical page-turn buttons, Wi-Fi, and most of the usual Kindle features.

The basic Kindle has an 800 x 600 resolution screen, so it lacks the fine details of the newer higher-resolution screens like on the Kindle Paperwhite. But some people like the basic Kindle better anyway because the fonts are darker and bolder than the Paperwhite’s fonts.

  1. I like mine a lot and wish that kind of product will never stop, only I would have loved the paper to be more white.
