The Kindle is one of the most innovative e-readers to ever hit the market. It allows you to download books and so much more to your device and read on the go. As the years have gone on, they’ve evolved for the better. The prices as well have gone up though.

That’s why it makes sense to hit up this Kindle sale while you can. You can get the Kindle in either black or white with ads for only $54.99. That’s a 39% discount!

Built for reading, the 167 ppi glare-free display reads like real paper. Even in direct sunlight, you’ll enjoy some of the best and engaging stories. Also, a single battery charge lasts weeks, not hours. The brightness is adjustable, so you can figure out what is comfortable for you.

This is a great deal, but it’s one we’re telling you to pass up. Why? Because there’s an even better one for the same price.

Better Kindle deal for the same price

Why wouldn’t you want something for free? You can get three months of Kindle Unlimited totally free when you purchase this version of the Kindle in white and this version of the Kindle in black. These still have ads but you can Kindle Unlimited for three months!

Kindle Unlimited provides access to millions of books, newspapers, and audiobooks with just the swipe of a few fingers on a screen. The audiobooks come from the audiobook app, Audible. You can pair your Kindle with Bluetooth headphones or speakers to seamlessly switch to playing an audiobook or music out loud.

As we said, these are the same price as the other ones, so they are down to just $54.99! That’s $35 you can save and, at this time of year, saving is a top priority for many.
