Target is running a sale on Amazon Kindle and Kindle Paperwhite 11th Generation. The Paperwhite with the 6.8 inch screen and 300 PPI display is $30 off, and you can pick one up for $109.99, sale ends today. If you want to get it from Best Buy instead, the company’s price will be the target price. The base model Kindle is less impressive, but it’s a good e-reader if you’re new to this area of ebook reading. Regular price is $89.99, but you can get it today for $54.99.
I think the best deal is the Paperwhite, it’s the 8GB model and it’s the model that came out late last year, so it’s really new. People are really liking the new lighting system, which incorporates more than 20 white and amber LED lights to provide a dynamic front display and color temperature system. It’s the first Paperwhite to forgo the traditional 6-inch screen and is now 6.8-inches, the extra screen real estate ensures more text can fit on the screen. It has Bluetooth, for headphones or wireless headphones, it is used to listen to audiobooks from Audible, which you can buy from the Kindle store.
