Amazon's affordable Kindle and Kindle Kids e-readers are a lot cheaper than usual0
Said ad-supported version of the entry-level Kindle e-book reader is available at 30 bucks less than usual at the time of this writing, and on top of everything, Amazon will give you a 3-month Kindle Unlimited subscription at no extra charge.
While the slightly more advanced Kindle Paperwhite is unfortunately no longer marked down by a massive $59 and $72 in 8 and 32GB storage configurations respectively, settling instead for humbler price cuts capping off at 50 bucks, the Kindle Kids edition is on sale at a very rare $40 discount of its own.
Seeing as how the Kindle Kids is basically a "regular" 10th generation Kindle with a "kid-friendly" cover slapped on, as well as a two-year "worry-free" guarantee and a complimentary one-year FreeTime Unlimited subscription included, it's not especially surprising to be able to get both products at unusually low prices at the same time.
The Kindle Kids is available with a wide array of playful and colorful covers, including blue, pink, "Rainbow Birds", and "Space Station" options, sharing a 6-inch 167 ppi glare-free touchscreen, built-in front light, stellar battery life, and 8 gigs of internal storage space (enough to hold thousands and thousands of e-books) with the non-kid-friendly Kindle edition last upgraded back in 2019.
That's a pretty long time ago, by the way, which makes us wonder if perhaps Amazon is signaling the impending arrival of a sequel with these amazing new deals. Naturally, that may or may not end up happening this fall, and if you're a bargain hunter in need of a solid e-reader today, it's probably not a good idea to take the risk.
