Amazon hasn’t been offering very many good deals on Kindles this holiday shopping season, aside from their Paperwhite 3 clearance sale, but that finally changed last night when they put the new Kindle Paperwhite 4 on sale for the first time in the US.
You can get the 8GB Kindle Paperwhite for $99 and they’ve also got the 32GB model marked down to $119. The cellular model with 32GB is $187.
The new Paperwhite has been on sale in Europe for the past couple of weeks so it’s good to see they’ve got it on sale here now too.
One thing I noticed is they’re only charging $15 extra to get the non-ad versions; it normally costs $20 more to remove the Special Offers.
There’s also the new Kindle Paperwhite Audible bundles that I posted about yesterday that come with a pair of wireless headphones and a 3 month trial to Audible for $139.
The Paperwhite deals expire on December 22nd. Amazon also has a list of Kindle eBooks on sale today only for one of their Deals of the Day, with up to 80% off top fiction reads.
$99 is a good price for the new Paperwhite considering it’s waterproof and it now has 8GB of storage space and Bluetooth for Audible support. I was wondering if they’d price it that low with the upgrades, and it’s good to see they have.
See my Kindle Paperwhite 4 review for more information and to see a video review of it in action.
It seems like Amazon just sensored or deleted 100 reviews. That’s odd, I can understand the Kindle not selling well and having poor reviews which is the reason for the sale but that’s not good business practice in my opinion.
If you type in paperweight you can see about 1050 reviews and when you click on the reviews it brings it down to 950.

Stupid question that has nothing to do with this actual post, other than the fact that I traded in my old Paperwhite for the new version: If I back up my Documents folder to my PC to copy to my new kindle, will my collections transfer over with the folder?
