Amazon came up with a new sales event this year called the “Prime Early Access Sale” for October 11th and 12th. It’s kind of like Prime Day 2.0 but they have a bunch of things on sale that don’t require a Prime membership, including Kindle ereaders and Kindle covers.
They did add some exclusive Kindle deals for Prime members today in the form of Kindle Paperwhite bundle packages.
I posted about the Kindle deals last week, and the prices remain the same during this sales event, but they did add a sweetener to the sale, and it doesn’t appear to require a Prime membership.
Now in addition to the sale prices, you can get an additional $20 off when buying two qualifying Kindles.
The deals are limited to the Kindle Paperwhite and Kindle Oasis; the new basic Kindle and new Kindle Scribe obviously aren’t on sale yet, but with the extra $20 off these are the best Kindle deals of the year so far.
You can also get an additional 10% back when buying a Kindle Paperwhite or Kindle Oasis using an Amazon Prime credit card.
As noted a couple days a go, Kindle covers are also on sale for the Paperwhite and Oasis, and some of the Paperwhite covers can be had for just a few bucks for open box.
Update: There’s also an offer available for select accounts where you can get a $5 ebook credit when spending $15 on ebooks. The deal ends October 16th. Check this Kindle Rewards page at Amazon to see if you qualify.
