Kindle Reader on Amazon Prime Day
Amazon Prime Day is back again.
While we consider Prime Day as a great time to save some serious money on certain products we want to buy, we also saw some customers who have conveyed their displeasure with Amazon, on the last Prime Day. Even though there will be some questionable deals on Prime Day, it really should not distract from the good ones.
The happy news for book lovers who are planning to buy a Kindle in coming days or weeks, is that on the Prime Day we will see some serious price drops on Amazon Kindle devices for sure. Last time, on the Prime Day, Amazon was selling the Kindle devices at bargain deals and this time also the retail giant is not going make a difference, I think (for eg: Last time in 2016, Kindle Voyage was selling for $149.99 (save $50) on Prime Day)
Here are some deals on Kindle devices we can expect on upcoming Prime Day.
- Kindle 6″ E-reader for $49.99 (save $30) – Same price as on last Prime Day. Will be a solid purchase
- Kindle Paperwhite for $89.99 (save $30) – Same price as on Prime Day last year. We can expect a similarly repeated price this time also.
- Kindle Oasis E-reader for $269.99 (save $20) – This one is the latest to the line up of Amazon’s E-readers, but we can expect a price cut on this one too.
So, if you are planning to buy an Amazon Kindle device soon, this might be the right time to get one with some savings!

More than the savings on Kindle devices on Prime Day, there are some other benefits also for a Prime member on Prime Day.
#1. Kindle eBook Rentals
Any Amazon Prime member who owns a Kindle E-reader, Fire tablet, or Fire phone can rent E-books for free from the Kindle Owners Lending Library. Rented E-books have no due dates and can be shared across any devices connected to your Amazon account.
The only restriction is that Prime members can borrow only one book per month. You can download the book to compatible devices registered to the same Amazon account or to the account of adults in the same Amazon Household. Available titles may change each calendar month.
Here are the few titles you will find in the Lending Library.
How to borrow a book from Kindle Owners Lending Library?
- From your device, open the Kindle Store.
- Locate an eligible title to borrow.
- Select Borrow for Free. If you’ve already borrowed a book, you’ll be prompted to return that book before you can borrow a new title.
How to return a book borrowed from Kindle Owners’ Lending Library?
Books from the Kindle Owners’ Lending Library have no due dates and can be returned at any time.
Any bookmarks, notes, and highlights in the book will be saved to your Amazon account and will be available if you borrow or purchase the book later.
