Kindle Black Friday Deals 2016 Guide, Amazon and other deals

screen-shot-2016-11-23-at-10-39-35-amAs Black Friday is almost here Amazon already lined up some of its great deals on its Black Friday 2016 page. We will update this page during Black Friday week and Cyber Monday with most recent deals on Amazon store.

Amazon New Devices Deals

Let’s start with Amazon all times hit released several years ago but still one of the best devices for reading your e-books. It is all-new Kindle device. When first Kindle just hit the shelves in 2007 it was selling for outrageous $399 price (it seemed normal back then though when it was one of the first devices on markets). But now several years later you can get 8th generation all new device for just $49.99 this Black Friday. It sells regularly for $79.99. Yes it came down from $399 to $49.99. It is 8th generation and 8 times price difference now. So grab yours if you still don’t own one.


If you want to step up a notch it may be time to go for Kindle Paperwhite which has an amazing 1440×1080, 300 ppi E Ink Carta HD display. No matter how hard you will look there is a little chance that you will find pixels on this display. And if you like to read at night it has a built in light in its screen with brightness you have full control off. So you can read your Kindle Paperwhite at night without bothering your partner. Or you can lit up the screen to full brightness and use it as a low power light torch to get to the bathroom. And if you travel a lot you may want to get a 3G version of it. Now since we’re about to enter Black Friday pricing on Kindle Paperwhite also dropped. Version with Wi-Fi and special offers is available for only $99.99 now (regular price is $119.99). 3G version with special offers is $169.99 (a bit too much for 3G in my opinion but some folks really need it).

Now let’s get to more expensive options. Kindle Voyage is probably entering mass market now since its priced for Black Friday is just $169.99 which is border line affordable in my opinion. But you get glass screen and 6 LED lights behind the screen. It does adds up to brightness and contrast of the screen but given that Kindle Paperwhite already has superb contrast it is hard to make it better given that both devices share the same screen. But due to the glass screen and LED lights it is visually different from Paperwhite and has a bit more contrast. As a bonus Kindle Voyage has “PagePress” technology when you can press on the sides of the Kindle and page will magically turn. Overall it is a very comfortable device and it fills like a step up from Kindle Paperwhite. Though you will be happy with either device.

So quick recap.

Amazon Refurbished Devices Deals

Refurbished device from Amazon is claimed to be: refurbished, tested, and certified to look and work like new.

So given this claim and that any Refurbished device from Amazon “Is subject to the same return policy as any new Amazon Device” you can order one with a piece of mind.

Deals on refurbished Kindles are actually very good this Black Friday. Certified Refurbished Kindle Paperwhite could be yours for $79.99 (new one is regularly priced at $119.99 and Black Friday deal for new one is $99.99). So $20 difference here.

Certified Refurbished Kindle Voyage is $119.99. New one on Black Friday deal is $169.99 .$40 difference here which is better than Kindle Paperwhite’s.

It is worth noting that Refurbished Kindle Fire HD 10 Tablet with 10.1 inch display, Wi-Fi and 16GB is on sale for $159.99. This is quite a good deal given that you will get full featured tablet with large screen.

Cyber Monday

Black Friday discount on Kindle discontinued

Paperwhite DimensionsDiscount that we reported on multiple Kindle products is discontinued for now. Serveral days ago Amazon reduced pricing on Kindle Paperwhite, Kindle 6″ and Kindle Voyage by $20. At this moment prices are back to where they were before the discount. We hope that it wasn’t just one time discount and closer to Black Friday we will see more discounts on Kindle products from Amazon.

Black Friday and Cyber Monday are just 3 weeks from now. So it is a good time to start planning ahead on what you’d like to get. But as you just saw Kindle discounts could show up earlier than official Black Friday dates. So it would be a good habbit to check Amazon Black Friday page once every few days to see if any new discounts are available. And don’t be disappointed if there aren’t any. Kindle discounts almost always show up several times during Amazon Black Friday sale.

You can check current deals and countdown to Black Friday on following Amazon page: https://www.amazon.com/Black-Friday. You can find nice deals there every day.

Also make sure to check Amazon Echo product page. Amazon is running nice sale there too.
