We saw some terrific deal pop up on Amazon over the past week on Kindle and Kindle Paperwhite models, but today’s closeout sale on the previous-generation Kindle Oasis E-reader crushes them all. With a retail price of $250, the only real difference between this model and the new one is the different backlight. You can pay $250 for that new light, or you can get the previous-gen version in today’s crazy Amazon sale for only $149.99… plus get a $5 credit when you activate it!

Here are the key details from the product page:

  • Now available in Graphite or Champagne Gold.
  • Our largest, highest resolution display— 7” and 300 ppi, reads like real paper without glare, even in bright sunlight.
  • The first waterproof (IPX8) Kindle so you are free to read in even more places.
  • Now with Audible, listen to the world’s largest library of audiobooks. Pair with Bluetooth to take the story with you anytime, anywhere.
  • Thin and light ergonomic design with dedicated page turn buttons and adaptive front light so you can read even more comfortably for hours.
  • Keep reading—a single charge lasts weeks, not hours.
  • Enjoy twice the storage with 8 GB. Or choose 32 GB to hold more magazines, comics, newspapers, and audiobooks.
  • Instant access to new releases and bestsellers, or over a million titles at $2.99 or less. Prime members read free with unlimited access to over a thousand titles.
