Amazon has run a hefty number of discounts for their entry-level Kindle and Paperwhite over the course of the past week, but they aren’t done yet. The company has just added the Kindle Oasis 3, the latest generation model with a color temperature screen to the list of devices that are on sale for Black Friday.
The base model of the Amazon Kindle Oasis 8GB is $75 off and you can purchase one for $174, which is 30% off and is really good deal. If you need more internal storage than the 32GB Kindle Oasis might be for you. It is on sale for Black Friday for $199, which saves you $80 off the normal price. Finally, the LTE version of the Oasis will allow you to shop for ebooks and download content from the cloud, no WIFI needed. This model is on sale for $269, which shaves $80 off the normal price.
I believe this is the best time to buy the new Kindle Oasis. This model wasn’t even really discounted for Prime Day, because it was too new at the time. This is the first time I can remember that Amazon has discounted this model so heavily for all of the different models. This remains my favorite current generation Kindle e-reader, primarily because it is really fast with the Freescale 1GHZ dual core processor, one of the few on the planet that uses it. You can also read at night and mute the bright white screen with amber LED’s to mute them a bit. It also has the largest screens, so more text can be visible at any one time.
If you intend on buying one of these new Kindle Oasis e-readers, you also might want to check out the cases, which are also on sale. Each one is discounted anywhere between $10 and $20. The leather cover is on sale for $37.99 and comes in black and red. The premium leather cover is $48.99 and just comes in one color, brown. If you don’t want to spend the money for a good looking cover, you can get the waterproof fabric cover which is on sale for $29.99 and comes in three colors; black, blue and red.
