Will Kindle be on Sale for Prime Day 2023?

It’s that time of the year again. 

It’s hard to miss the buzz around Amazon Prime Day if you are even remotely into online shopping. Plus, the occasion brings such splendid discounts on so many gadgets – the nifty Kindle included – that missing it would be unfortunate. 

Amazon has officially declared this year’s Prime Day will be on July 11 and 12, Tuesday and Wednesday – just about two weeks from now. Readers have been wondering: will the Kindle be on sale, too? And how soon will the offers start pouring in? Well, we have good news consolidated here for you.

Is the Kindle on sale on Amazon Prime Day 2023?

So far, Amazon has announced a deal on the Kindle Paperwhite Kids edition. You can buy it at $89.99 – down by $70 from its list price. It’s a stellar offer also because it’s the lowest price ever for this 8GB device. The kid-friendly gadget is solely a reader without access to the internet. With 8GB, this little library can easily keep over 3,000 e-books.

Since its launch in 2007, the Kindle has become the go-to for reading books of all kinds: bestselling novels, manga – you name it. Bibliophiles feared that a paperback would always have an edge – and in many ways, that may be true – but there’s no denying the convenience and ease of owning a Kindle for book lovers.

Going by the track record, many more deals will get launched soon. Every year, more or less, the Kindle has been on sale during this shopping festival. The discounts have been steep too – $50 to $100 or more, easily! Last year in the US, Prime Day saw the base Kindle available at just $44.99 – more than 50% off its original price. The Kindle Kids and Paperwhite also saw close to $50 discounts, while the Oasis allowed you to save an astounding $75.

We will know soon – likely by July 01 and onwards – how deep this year’s sales on Kindles will be. But it should be safe to assume that substantial discounts are definite.

Will Kindle accessories be on sale?

Amazon is known to offer bundle discounts, letting you enjoy savings on cases and charging plugs. For instance, in 2022, the Kindle Paperwhite Essentials Bundle offered $20 off. It was a neat way to save extra bucks while picking up helpful accessories for your e-reader.

Will Amazon Prime deals include the latest Kindle models?

The best part is that the company discounts even the best models during this time. So, you won’t be cheapening things at all. So, expect price cuts not only on the standard Paperwhite but also on the Kindle Scribe released in November 2022. 

Of course, clearance sales are also probable for older models. You can find some incredibly budget-friendly options in this category. 

Can you get discounts on Kindle Unlimited?

Kindle Unlimited, Amazon’s excellent subscription service with hordes of books, audiobooks, and magazines, is excluded from a regular Amazon Prime membership.

But during Prime Day, the company has frequently offered three free months. Generally, retailers charge you around $9.99 a month for this service. Suffice it to say such a deal will incur additional savings of $30. It will be over and above the product discounts.

Do you need a Prime membership to access Prime Day deals on Kindle?

Yes. You must be an Amazon Prime member to take advantage of these superb discounts. You can start a free 30-day trial if you aren’t a member.

Do note the membership auto-renews after this period. You will have to remember to cancel unless you wish to continue. The latter can be a great option, by the way, if you like online shopping. It comes with advantages outside of Prime Day, including faster delivery and access to member-only offers throughout the year. For example, you can buy top-rated Kindle books at as much as 80% off. The Kindle Daily Deals newsletter keeps you abreast of these developments.

The bottom line is: Kindle offers are among the most sought-after during Prime Day, which means they will also likely sell out quickly. We recommend sealing the deal fast if you plan to acquire a new Kindle or upgrade your existing one.
