The Kindle Oasis E-reader is obviously the king of Kindles, but it’s also super expensive so it doesn’t sell anywhere near as well as the cheaper models. Well, it usually doesn’t sell as well, but we have a feeling that’s going to change on Wednesday. The previous-generation version of this $280 e-book reader is just as good as the new one but it has a different backlight, and it’s on sale right now on Amazon for an all-time low of $149.99. As if that wasn’t good enough, you also get a $5 credit when you activate it!
