Footnotes

  1. MSRP is for the e-reader without additional accessories, like a stylus or cover. If such an accessory is always included (see column: Accessories in the box), then it’s also included in the listed price.
  2. Some Amazon Kindle e-readers are are also available with ads on the lockscreen, usually for a $20 discount on the listed MSRP for the base model without ads. You can remove the ads at a later date by paying the difference later (here).

  1. It’s Amazon Prime day today and tomorrow (July 16th and 17th 2024), which means you can find deals on Kindles!

    As I can see it right now, the Amazon.com Prime Day deals are as follows (Kindle model name + Amazon link, list price -> price now):

    Kindle 11th gen: $99 -> $84.99
    Kindle 11th gen without lock-screen ads: $119.99 -> $99.99
    Kindle Paperwhite 5th gen 16 GB: $149.99 -> $134.99
    Kindle Paperwhite 5th gen 16 GB without lock-screen ads: $169.99 -> $144.50
    Kindle Paperwhite Signature Edition: $189.99 -> $179.99
    Kindle Scribe 16 GB with basic pen: $339.99 -> $234.99
    Kindle Scribe 16 GB with premium pen: $369.99 -> $259.99
    Kindle Scribe 16 GB Essentials bundle (premium pen, folio cover & power adapter): $469.97 -> $289.97
    Kindle Scribe 32 GB: $389.99 -> $389.99 (not discounted)
    Kindle Scribe 32 GB Essentials bundle (Folio cover & power adapter): $489.97 -> $314.97
    Kindle Scribe 64 GB: $419.99 -> $419.99 (not discounted)
    Kindle Scribe 64 GB Essentials bundle (Folio cover & power adapter): $529.97 -> $334.97

    The Oasis 3 International version, which doesn’t ship to the US, is also heavily discounted (but isn’t marked as a Prime Day deal):
    Kindle Oasis 3 8 GB: $269.99 -> $135
    Kindle Oasis 3 32 GB: $349.99 -> $175

    Make sure to check the prices for yourself as deals might be limited or can change at any moment.

  2. Some clarification on the Kindle model names, as it might be a bit confusing.

    The first thing to address is that Amazon just lists the newest devices they’re as the ‘Kindle’, ‘Kindle Paperwhite’ and ‘Kindle Oasis’, without listing the generation of the device.

    To make it easier to distinguish and compare, the devices are more commonly known by adding their generation. I’ve done so in the comparison table as well.

    However, others also go with the release year. Then there’s also some that will call the cheapest Kindle device of every generation the ‘Kindle Basic’.

    To clarify, here’s a list of all devices that are known by multiple names:

    Kindle 11 = ‘Kindle 11th generation’, ‘Kindle 2022’, ‘Kindle Basic 4’, or ‘Kindle Basic 2022’
    Kindle 10 = ‘Kindle 10th generation’, ‘Kindle 2019, ‘Kindle Basic 3’, or ‘Kindle Basic 2019’
    Kindle 8 = ‘Kindle 8th generation’, ‘Kindle 2016’, ‘Kindle Basic 2’, or ‘Kindle Basic 2016’
    Kindle 7 = ‘Kindle 7th generation’, ‘Kindle 2014’, ‘Kindle Basic 1’, ‘Kindle Basic 2014’

    Kindle Paperwhite 5 = ‘Paperwhite 5th generation’ (as it’s the 5th generation of the ‘Paperwhite’ device), ‘Paperwhite 2021′, or ’11th generation Kindle Paperwhite’ (as it’s the 11th overall Kindle e-reader release generation)
    Kindle Paperwhite 4 = ‘Paperwhite 4th generation’, ‘Paperwhite 2019′, ’10th generation Kindle Paperwhite’
    Kindle Paperwhite 3 = ‘Kindle Paperwhite 3rd generation’, ‘Paperwhite 2015’, ‘7th generation Kindle Paperwhite’
    Kindle Paperwhite 2 = ‘Kindle Paperwhite 2nd generation’, ‘Paperwhite 2013’, ‘6th generation Kindle Paperwhite’
    Kindle Paperwhite = ‘First generation Kindle Paperwhite’, ‘Paperwhite 2012’

    Kindle Oasis 3 = ‘Oasis 3rd generation’, ‘Oasis 2019′, ’10th generation Oasis’
    Kindle Oasis 2 = ‘Oasis 2nd generation’, ‘Oasis 2017’, ‘9th generation Oasis’
    Kindle Oasis = ‘Oasis first generation’, Oasis 2016′, ‘8th generation Oasis’

    If you want to know which model you have, or are looking at in a listing, make sure to also check the model number and compare it with the model numbers listed in the table. You can find the model numbers on the backside of your device, in small lettering, near the bottom.
