Amazon Kindle Paperwhite will be on sale for $79.99 for Prime Day

An Amazon representative has informed me that the Kindle Paperwhite will be on sale for $79.99 during Prime Day next week. That price will be the new lowest price that Amazon has ever sold their mid-tier e-reader. For comparison, the Paperwhite was $89.99 during both Prime Day and Black Friday last year, which is currently the lowest it has ever been. Whether or not the other Kindle models will be on sale is unknown, but it’s probably safe to assume the base Kindle and the Kindle Voyage will both be discounted. I expect the Kindle will be at most $49.99 and the Voyage will be at most $149.99, because those are prices we’ve already seen during past sales. I wouldn’t be surprised if the Voyage reaches a new all-time low of $139.99 or $129.99, but I don’t think the Kindle will be any lower than $49.99. A sale price for the Kindle Oasis is more difficult to predict because it has literally never been on sale. As Amazon’s newest and most high-end Kindle model, I wouldn’t be surprised if the Oasis doesn’t receive a discount at all during Prime Day. These sale prices are expected to be available starting July 16th at noon PT.

    Good to know. Personally I think for high volume readers like me buying anything more expensive than the basic model insane. The more you read the quicker they die. I’m on my fourth now. My recently deceased model admittedly lasted the longest at three years but they average less than two. The screen is just to fragile for day to day use if you carry them around with you and I am amazed that even after all these years no one has come out with an armoured case for them.

    If anyone thinks I am talking rubbish even Amazon themselves think an 18 month lifespan is reasonable for a Kindle. Buying the luxury versions just makes no sense to me unless it never leaves your bedside table.
