The Kindle Paperwhite is available for its lowest-ever price

Two stunning Kindle e-reader deals, but hurry because both are only available until 10am tomorrow, 19 August

When you picture Amazon deals, you’d be forgiven for thinking the best ones crop up only around Prime Day and Black Friday; but that’s not the case for the best-selling Kindle Paperwhite, which has just been given £50 off – its biggest saving ever!

This Kindle usually retails at £120, which gets you 8GB storage, the ability to play audiobooks, a 6in high-res display and mind-boggling battery life that can last you weeks instead of days.

For just £70, the Kindle Paperwhite is the lowest price it’s ever been. But you need to hurry, because this deal is only live until 10am tomorrow (Thursday, 19 August).

This stunning e-reader is also the cheapest waterproof Kindle that you can buy. For starters, it can withstand accidental immersion in two meters of freshwater for an hour, or 25cm of seawater for three minutes, making it perfect for reading in the bath, by the sea or at the pool.

It’s also the thinnest, lightest Kindle yet, making it even better for travel than the earlier models. It’s still got the classic Paperwhite glare-free screen, and a built-in adjustable light so you can comfortably read anywhere, whatever the time of day.

If you’re in the mood for an audiobook, you can also pair your Kindle with Audible, allowing you to continue reading while your hands are busy, or your eyes are closed.

In our full review, we liked Amazon’s top-rated e-reader so much that we gave it five stars and a coveted Best Buy award.

We were particularly impressed with its simplistic user interface and incredible battery life: “With no distractions or eye strain there’s simply nothing to stop you getting lost in the story; not even that Achilles’ heel of the tech world: battery life.”

Save £45 on the Kindle Kids Edition today

As if one great deal wasn’t enough, Amazon seems to be in a good mood today spoiling us with two.

You can save £45 on the Kindle Kids Edition e-reader, which is now available for its lowest price of £55 – down from £100. Like the deal above, this one, too, expires at 10am tomorrow.

It comes with a choice of four colourful protective covers and includes a year of Amazon Kids+, which gives your child over 1,000 great books to read.

When we reviewed this Kindle, we were amazed by the built-in Word Wise feature that lets kids save words they don’t know, check their definitions, and expand their vocabulary.

Our reviewer said, “It’s these kinds of features that make the Kindle Kids Edition arguably better suited than any printed book to helping children develop their reading skills, especially when there are none of the distractions you’ll find on a tablet.”

You don’t have to worry about your kids being clumsy either – Amazon will replace your Kindle Kids Edition e-reader for free if it breaks within the first two years.

Now, for this new lower price, there’s never been a better time to invest in your kids’ education, especially with school about to reopen in a few weeks’ time.
