Here's an idea for you... and this link may not be easy to find

A refurbished as-new Paperwhite 3 from Amazon with full 1 year (same as new) warranty for $84.99 (as of today) instead of $119.99 for a new one

This would save you $35.00, enough to buy a nice case with about $20 left over

They also sell very good used ones for about $77.00 with NO warranty but have a 30 day return policy

I have had great luck with the used ones, but if you want one with a warranty, the refurb is the way to go

Hope that helps

The lack of buttons is not a big deal to me. I switched from a Kindle 4 to a Paperwhite 2 a few months ago, and haven't missed them at all.

With a touchscreen, the general interface is a lot better than the non-touch devices, and I also prefer the touchscreen for turning the pages. With the Kindle 4/5 the page turn buttons are very thin and right at the edge of the device - it was easy to turn the page accidentally, and awkward to use if you had the device in a case.

What I would miss though, is the Paperwhite's light.

To be honest, I ended up not using my first Kindle nearly as much as I thought I would because I never had the right lighting for it, and the lighted cases were terrible.

Since buying the Paperwhite I'm reading probably an hour or two a day now - and more importantly, have continued to do so, because the screen is always bright and easy to read whether you're in bed at night or just aren't near a bright light that's suitable for reading with.

Even in a bright room, the light helps make the page appear whiter. (hence the name "Paperwhite")

The higher resolution screen is nice too, but not a deal-breaker - especially if you use Amazon's own fonts. I do like to use custom fonts though, which do look better on the higher resolution display.

Here are some photos I took when my Paperwhite 2 arrived, in a moderately bright room:

  • Kindle Paperwhite (light on)
  • Kindle Paperwhite (light off)
  • Kindle 4
  • (bonus iPad Air)

    This is using a custom font, but if you look at the A's and y's the lower resolution of the Kindle 4 is noticeable. With the built-in fonts like Caecilia, or at larger font sizes, it's less noticeable, but I do still prefer reading on the higher resolution screen.

    Especially if this is your first e-reader, I would urge you to spend/save the extra $40 for the Paperwhite model rather than the basic Kindle. You won't regret it.
u/nermal543 · 5 pointsr/kindle

Here's my ideal Kindle wishlist!

  • Voyage update (I have the original and I love it!)

  • Waterproof

  • Blue light filter (for bedtime reading)

  • Slightly bigger screen

  • Physical page turn buttons

  • Better system for managing Collections of books

  • A nice official case similar to the Paperwhite ones like this - I have the Voyage and I like the Origami case I'm using, but I'd really prefer an official case similar to the Paperwhite one

  • I'd like a larger bezel actually, I think it makes it more comfortable to hold the Kindle (more room to put your fingers without covering the screen!)
u/no_4 · 2 pointsr/kindle

Not many get screen protectors. Unlike with a smartphone, scratching isn't really a concern since you're not carrying it in your pocket all the time. The actual concern is pressure / shock breaking the screen. For that I think a case is better.

For the case, I've used the official Amazon one, a "high quality" 3rd party one, and a cheap Ebay one. The real world quality goes High - Low in that order, but I'd say the best value by far is the "high quality" 3rd party one - like this one on Amazon, Finite paperwhite cover

u/adamsw216 · 1 pointr/kindle

I've been doing a lot of research on this since I got my Kindle keyboard recently.

I love the Oberon cases, but I like something a little more plain, plus those are rather expensive (even more than I actually paid for my Kindle).

So I was looking around on Etsy and I found the Beautiful Kindle 3 bookbindery case which I really love the look of. Plus since it's extremely rigid, it would offer good protection. On the other hand, it's still expensive, and I didn't really like the look of the birch wood when the case is open.

Then I found the Dodo Case which is made with a much sleeker looking bamboo and still maintains the whole "bound book" look. However, the price still kills me.

So despite everything, I ended up just getting the standard Amazon Kindle Case, and I figured I could save up and eventually get a Dodo case or Oberon case down the line.

u/im-ironman · 1 pointr/kindle

Since you read in hospitals / indoors, as well as outside, Kindle Paperwhite2(PW2) Wifi would suit you best. Paperwhite is superior to previous Kindles even on the plain reading front, so it's the obvious choice.

You can go for a refurbished Kindle PW2 here to save some bucks.

Has same warranty and everything as a new one, and will look like new too. There was a sale for Kindle PW2 last week, when you couldve gotten these refurbished ones for even lower, $89.

All the best!

u/Zippyvinman · 6 pointsr/kindle

If you look at any Kindle, Amazon offers two models, one “with special offers” and one “without special offers”. The “with special offers” is $20 cheaper than without them. Having “special offers” is just advertisements on the lockscreen of your kindle, typically pictures of books, maybe some information, and you can purchase them right from the homescreen. You can pay $20 to have them removed and have a generic background that changes, or, you can simply ask amazon support and if you’re a prime member, they’ll usually do it for free (worked for me!)

P.S.: this is what you’ll want

Kindle Paperwhite E-reader - Black, 6" High-Resolution Display (300 ppi) with Built-in Light, Wi-Fi - Includes Special Offers

u/lebronkahn · 1 pointr/kindle

So do you think this is good or a little overpriced? It does look really good. I am wondering if I should buy one (reading on the laptop is hard with so much distraction). Is it easy to use (never owned a kindle before)?

You mentioned the backlight. It does seem like a very nice feature. Do you have to manually set it up?


u/towardthefinish · 6 pointsr/kindle

Get the official amazon's great.

Then pickup a cheap neoprene sleeve with it.

What you have created is a otterbox-like case for it....a hard rigid shell surrounding the PW protecting it from bends, etc. and then a soft absorbent case surrounding the hard rigid case which protect it from falls, bashes, etc.

I have this setup and couldn't be more happier. I have the exact same cases linked above...the official PW case fits nicely, but a little snuggly, into the Belkin neoprene case.

If you're going to be in a wet environment, pickup some desiccants to help with the moisture issue, and use them with the PW case - maybe in a ziploc bag or smaller pelican bag/box.

A word of caution about moisture: What you do not want to do is expose the device to a very moist/humid environment, and then shove it back in a waterproof/etc. bag. You need a way to get rid of the moisture - putting it in a waterproof pelican bag is basically creating a small greenhouse, because the moisture has no way to escape. Your stuff will be "dry" but it will never feel 100% dry. Electronics will suffer tremendously. This is why I suggest the desiccants. Keep a ton of them, and replace them often. Store them separately, in multiple bags (large ziploc bag, then smaller ziploc bags with 1-2 desiccants each). This way when you need 1-2 you only have to expose a small number of them to the environment. Put one wherever your most precious gear in the bag your PW is in, your socks/underwear, maps, etc. They will absorb the moisture but need to be changed probably 1-2 times a day depending on how wet/humid the environment is. Read up on compartmentalization of your gear for your trip, and Good Luck!

u/serenityunlimited · 5 pointsr/kindle

I found this on the Kindle Paperwhite 2 page. It did not appear on the PW1 or the Voyage.

Haven't seen this mentioned before, only their Kindle Unlimited offer. I noticed it while browsing the Kindle pages, I didn't receive an email solicitation.

Pretty great offer. I ordered the PW2 from the refurbished discount the other day, but this is an awesome alternative. I wish it was available for the Voyage, though, so I could compare with that...

u/StuffedHobbes · 3 pointsr/kindle

Enjoy! I've had my paperwhite for 2 months and I love it. I purchased this for my cover and it works great!

u/seanprefect · 2 pointsr/kindle

Lower is better isn't a budget, let me give you some advice that i wish that had been given to me at your age. ALWAYS set a budget for any task. You need hard figures, otherwise you can fall into some dangerous traps. Also cheapest isn't the least expensive you have to consider the ramifications of ownership.

this is a good quality relatively cheep SSD.

a solid phone for pretty cheep.

the certified refurbished kindles are great and trustworthy.

you can do all those for under 400.

u/Shyam09 · 6 pointsr/kindle

Nicest one is the Oasis hands down, but it's also the most expensive.

Then Voyage.

Then Paperwhite.

Then regular Kindle with no backlighting.

If you're looking to save some money, go Paperwhite; if you want to go all out, get the Oasis. Buy the Voyage is you want to spend some extra money. The resolution is all the same (except the base Kindle) - 300 PPI - but different devices have different features.
Amazon provides a small comparison table, so check it out (you'll need to scroll down -- You know your wife the best, so will she prefer to touch the screen, press the bezels, or need actual buttons. Touch is available on all devices, but the more premium ones have the other options (pagepress for Voyage and actual buttons on the Oasis).

It's a bit hard to point you in a direction without knowing what your budget is / how much you can afford.

u/o0oo0o_ · 2 pointsr/kindle

> 300ppi

You're looking for a 7th Gen PW, aka the PW3.

The PW4 is also 300ppi, but you shouldn't be able to get a used one yet; if someone's selling a "used" PW4, I'd be highly suspicious and probably avoid the sale.

> used kindle Paperwhite

Ebay? Amazon? Craiglist?

Whichever you choose, try to register it immediately to ensure that it hasn't been reported lost or stolen.

Instead of used, you might want to consider something officially refurbished directly from Amazon.

Also, woot had refurbished Voyages on sale a few days ago, $89 IIRC, and Amazon had the new 10th Gen PW4 on sale already in some countries. If I can find the link for woot I'll add it later.

Edit: links.

7th Gen PW3, $79.99 new from Amazon.

Voyage, $99.99 refurbished from Woot, in "Good" condition:

u/warbler7 · 2 pointsr/kindle

Try to buy an old kindle for $10-$35 and trade it in to get 25% off a new oasis. plus $5/$25/$50 trade in credit for trade-in depending on age/type of kindle.

Depending on Oasis 3 version getting you can save $67-$92... this saving I put towards the 3-year insurance and a sleeve

just make sure to select gift option when ordering it so it does not link to account right away

u/yanoosh · 11 pointsr/kindle

It depends. Do you read a lot? Do you plan on reading a lot? Is the weight and size of physical books an issue with you? Do you not want to carry around books all the time? Those are pretty basic questions you should consider before considering any e-reader.

After that, what format of books do you read? Normal books, or comics? Maybe a cheap tablet would suit you better.

After that, do you really need the comfort of reading in darker places? If not, go with the basic Kindle for $69, which is lighter and has a more reliable page turning mechanism, but lacks a touch screen and has lower contrast/resolution.

If you want the advantage of ebooks over physical books, get a Nook or regular Kindle.

If you want the advantage of ebooks, higher contrast, and the ability to read in any lighting situation, get the Paperwhite. How much of a price discrepancy is there between the old and new Paperwhite?

u/NicoC72 · 1 pointr/kindle

Here is a price tracker on the current Paperwhite. It drops every so often. The current $90 price isn't shown because it's not a price change, but a one time use discount. The current base model Kindle doesn't really have a price history as it just came out, so here is the previous one just for reference.

As far as Paperwhite vs base model goes, you have to think of your use case. Like I read more at night and want to have some manga style stuff on it, so the built in light and higher resolution are big pluses. If the added features of the Paperwhite are things that you want and believe are worth the step up in price, I would save up until the next sale. You might also be able to borrow an ereader from somewhere in the mean time. I think colleges library rents them out in two week intervals, maybe your public library offers something similar? Most lend out ebooks now too.

u/cryzed- · 6 pointsr/kindle

Check out the section that says "Brilliantly crisp display" here, so I honestly doubt it, especially with the Amazon ebook readers that always successfully managed to completely eliminate glare. It seems very unlikely that they would suddenly introduce the new "flagship" of the series with such a huge drawback.

u/Aisakura7 · 2 pointsr/kindle

Not sure if they make it for the Oasis, but I have This One for my paperwhite. It was pricey, but worth it. It's gotten wet, dropped squashed and squished and it's still going strong 3 years later. The leather is naturally wearing nicely too

u/the1welshman · 1 pointr/kindle

I personally have a magnetic folio case and I absolutely love it. Besides protecting your kindle, it also feels amazing in your hand and gives you better grip while reading. Also, it makes it so you just open the cover and your screen turns on, rather than needing to press the button. It may sound insignificant, but its a game changer for me. I highly recommend getting one.

Here's the one I have:

u/Corix · 2 pointsr/kindle

like you stated, i do probaply 90% of my reading in bed. i keep my kindle (non-touch) on my nightstand, so i honestly could not justify the price of the kindle lighted cover.

i bought this... link

its definitely not as nice as the "kindle cover" but its a fraction of the price. it has a light, and it will protect it if the thing falls, or if i decide to take it with me when i go on vacation.

hope this helps.

u/cornmonkey · 9 pointsr/kindle

Not sure if you have bad experiences with Kindle "Special Offer" editions in the past, but if not I would HIGHLY recommend you get that one instead. Not only are they cheaper, Amazon has been known to push through their own exclusive deals via Special Offer Kindles.

If I remember correctly, there have been discounts on their gift cards, steep prices cuts on electronics such as other Kindles and TVs, or more recently a Chromebook that went for $50 (I think).

I'm definitely going to preorder a Voyage. But I'm waiting on a case similar to this one.

u/atnpgo · 1 pointr/kindle

What I personally use is this. I don't think its quite what you're looking for but I am 100% satisfied with it.

It wouldn't protect from scratch while you're using it, but it does a wonderful job while its in a backpack or something.

u/fi_fi · 2 pointsr/kindle

I think this is what you're probably looking for:

I have it on one of my "backup" Kindles and it's SUPER nice!

u/jonadair · 1 pointr/kindle

I got the same one in black and have been really happy with it. Fits perfect, sturdy, and isn't that much thicker.

u/MuscleWizardcastFIST · 3 pointsr/kindle

I love/have this case. Keep in mind though, this case has a natural finish (not suede). Pretty good reviews that go into more details.

u/RobbStark · 4 pointsr/kindle

I have the official Amazon cover for my Paperwhite and it's actually much easier to operate and hold in one hand. Most of that is because it's smaller, thinner and lighter. The case is also quite nice, as the entire body of the Kindle fits into it snugly rather than being attached with metal clips on the side like my old Kindle Keyboard.

As for the touch screen: fear not, for I had the exact same concern. I was worried the lack of physical buttons would be annoying. Turns out that using your thumb to tab the screen is very easy, perhaps even more convenient and reliable than the physical buttons on the Keyboard. There's plenty of bezel on the Kindle and the case its own to let me hold on without accidentally touching the screen, as well.

u/tomkatt · 1 pointr/kindle

Probably can't do better than this.. Though if you absolutely want new, the cheapest Kindle version right now is $70.

I'm still rocking a Kindle 3 from 2011, these things are built like tanks it seems.

Saw you were in Canada in another comment. You may actually be better off looking into Kobo, they're much more popular and more readily available in that region.

u/earlgreyteatimer · 1 pointr/kindle

yeah, I don't know, the sales come and go.

I do much of my reading at night. The light is nice. I can read in bed. It will last for years. It's worth it.

These are on sale all of the time. Like every 2 or 3 months.

u/westcoastal · 2 pointsr/kindle

I have the official Amazon case and I really like it. It's solid, comfortable to hold and I can use it to prop up my book when I'm reading in bed.

u/jscheel · 4 pointsr/kindle

I've got the omoton case, and it's been pretty awesome. Especially at $11. Also has a voyage version.

Anybody know how it stacks up against the official paperwhite case?

u/[deleted] · 1 pointr/kindle

I use the Amazon case (here) for the keyboard version. There are slots on the side of the Kindle that fit tabs in the cover. It's very durable, easy to keep clean. There's something similar for the Touch, but it has neither the pebble grain nor the moleskine-style elastic closure, both of which I like.

u/admiraljohn · 1 pointr/kindle

I had something similar to that for a time but I found the straps that hold it in the case to be kind of irritating. I wound up getting an Amazon Lighted Case in its place, but that's a bit above what you said you wanted to spend.

Amazon also makes a non-lighted case for the Kindle that goes for about $30... there were issues with it when it first came out with a short causing the Kindle to freeze and/or reboot, but from what I understand that's been corrected.

My wife, on the other hand, isn't a fan of the Amazon case and uses this one, which she loves.

u/cocacola31173 · 1 pointr/kindle

I have this case and even though its a bit pricy its very nice quality. Fintie has one similar to it but don't know if its the same quality. Its very light also! I keep mine in the bedroom and my hubby says I often fall asleep with it in my hand!

u/Cweid · 0 pointsr/kindle

Reviews highly recommended this one for good reason. I am more than happy with it.

u/LanceFromPokemon · 12 pointsr/kindle

I'm sure most of us will tell you that any backlit LCD/LED style tablet is not going to be great for reading books. I'd recommend something with an e-ink screen. You can get an Amazon Kindle for as low as $80 .

u/JBaby_9783 · 5 pointsr/kindle

I don’t have an Oasis, but I do have the regular version of this sleeve. I love it. It’s not too big. Very high quality.

u/wanderjahr · -4 pointsr/kindle

This looks aimed at a different kind of animal. The marketing on the Voyage page is pretty masculine compared to the all female marketing paperwhite. Don't know why I noticed that, but I did. Looks sexy, but not enough to justify replacing my Paperwhite. Kinda want to get my hands on the Voyage to check it out though.

u/himynameis_ · 3 pointsr/kindle

> I'm considering the paperweight, but I live in Canada and would have to order it online or pick it up the next time I travel to the States.

You can get a Paperwhite in the store as well.

I bought my Paperwhite a few years ago (from the Canada store as well) and felt unsure about it too. But once I got it, am can not do without it. I read a lot more now than I would have before.

It's the light feature that makes it so much better. I felt like I had to always find a really good light source always when reading with a book, but not with the Paperwhite. So, it was an awesome buy for me. No regrets.

u/viper_in_the_grass · 2 pointsr/kindle

I checked a few older threads and here are a few links to suggested covers:




They all bend backwards and have auto wake/sleep. They all have different colours and designs.

These are the regular covers. There are also some neat covers called origami that fold in the back, making a little stand for the Kindle. Here's one by Fintie. Seems like all these brands have them, so just search and choose your favourite.

Note: those links are for the Paperbacks versions. If you go with the Voyage, just search for that version.

u/Endemoniada · 2 pointsr/kindle

From your own fucking link:

>Kindle Paperwhite guides light toward the surface of the display with its built-in front light—unlike back-lit tablets that shine in your eyes—so you can read comfortably for hours without eyestrain. Adjust your screen's brightness for great reading in any light.

Should I make that even bigger for you?

Now go away, you miserable fucking troll.

u/n0tsane42 · 11 pointsr/kindle

When I got my Paperwhite I did some research and found the OMOTON case. It's light, sturdy, and has a magnetic flap. Multiple color choices. The outside texture is nice, enough grip so it doesn't feel like it slides out of my hand. $14.99 on Amazon now. The price fluctuates though, I got mine for $10.

u/magarto · 1 pointr/kindle

>I think this is what you're probably looking for:

Thanks! I'm looking for something similar but thinner. I own this one but just looking something thinner and of leather

u/anondasein · 1 pointr/kindle

This one is the best but like others have said, for the $50 it costs, you could just return it and get the paperwhite.

u/meejle · 1 pointr/kindle

So, supposing you had the official leather cover that wakes your Kindle up when you open it... Would that be a good way of effectively "hiding" the screensaver ads?

Just a thought.

u/Tejasvi88 · 2 pointsr/kindle

It may make difference if you read PDFs frequently. Else, for reflowable text with Bookerly, pixels are hardly noticeable. If you have not to read in low light often then there is little value for double the price.

Also check Reviews and search for terms like resolution, pixels, etc.

PS: I own one. Text rendering is better than half of the books in my College library.

It's fine and cheaper than the $40 amazon case. It makes it easier to hold without touching the screen.

u/Hanselcj · 1 pointr/kindle

Huh, that is neat. I don't actually have a voyage, just some of their older paperwhites and previous generations. Something like this guy: Amazon link. Maybe give a cheaper case a try, 60 bucks is a serious price for an accessory.

u/kepler2 · 2 pointsr/kindle

Well PW4 is newer and lighter. I don't know about the light uniformity between these 2 devices.

Specs wise you can just compare them.



u/SwampDrainer · 2 pointsr/kindle

A certified refurbished one is only £90 so it seems pretty reasonable. I guess you'll find out if you're actually able to register it with Amazon.

u/illiadria · 3 pointsr/kindle

13 year old daughter and I both have this case (we have Touches, not Paperwhites). They have protected the Kindles well in both our backpacks with textbooks (mine much heavier than hers). She likes the little flap on the front when she is reading a series so she can slip in a scrap of paper with the correct order.

The top review on the Touch version says it had a strong smell - we did not experience that problem with either color we bought.

Here is the link to the Paperwhite version:

The only thing I would change would be to add external magnets to hold the cover in place when open, but that is very very minor. Couldn't beat the price though! There was no way I was going to spend almost half of what I paid for the device on an officially branded case.

Get him the Paperwhite. If his eyes don't bother him with regular books he'll be able to read on the Paperwhite with no problem.

As far as cases go, the official Amazon case is nice, but I prefer this Omoton case (better price, and better design).

u/adhochawk · 1 pointr/kindle

I don't believe there's a way to do it in general. Some books, like Ender's Game, include it in the description. (It's at the very end, so you may need to expand it)

u/Jay_Normous · 6 pointsr/kindle

Have you taken a look at the official Amazon cover? I've had mine for about 2 years now and it's fantastic. The 'leather' is starting to wear down on the corners but it doesn't really bother me.

u/xStang05x · 1 pointr/kindle

Extra slowly, just for you:

> that the Kindle Paperwhite is not a Kindle

It's the official model name.

"Kindle E-reader"

"Kindle Paperwhite E-reader"

> supports the assertion that the Kindle Paperwhite is backlit

Do you understand the difference between using reflected ambient light and an LED-lit device? Hint, it's the spectrum of the light your retina sees that matters.

Since apparently you have the memory of a goldfish, as well as a reading comprehension of an autist, look at OPs post. That's what we're discussing here.

u/akashik · 2 pointsr/kindle

Bearing in mind this one's probably the lower screen resolution model without a back-light. If you're okay with that going in and have a Fry's nearby, that's a good deal.

Bestbuy shows it as out of stock, and Amazon is selling it used for almost $40.

u/rotll · 2 pointsr/kindle

I have the basic Kindle, gen 7 I think. No back light, no frills. For me, it's everything I need. For $60 (cost today, YMMV, of course...), it's a great intro to the world of kindles. This one was a replacement for a Kindle Keyboard 3g, after the screen cracked. I ended up fixing it for $25 or so, and still have it, but the new one works well for me, and is my primary Kindle. I've never used a back lit model, nor needed that feature.

u/davw · 2 pointsr/kindle

You could get the amazon cover without the light and just buy a cheap book light as suggested by others. There's a used one going on Amazon for £23.55 at the moment, and as it's from amazon warehouse deals it's going to be practically new.

u/backstab · 1 pointr/kindle

It is a Kindle 6" Basic from 2014 or 15.
It is most likely this one; or the previous one to this.

If you are jsut going to use this for bedtime reading, then there is little to no reason to spend money on a special case unless it has functionality you want. If you are going to carry it about, then you may want the neoprene case /u/smokeyjoey8 linked or similar.

u/StarfighterProx · 7 pointsr/kindle

Not often. The Paperwhite has not seen any temporary reduction in price:

The regular Kindle has seen a couple of brief drops:

If you're dead-set on holding out for a sale, you can set price alerts through the pages linked above. There are other similar Amazon price trackers out there if you would prefer not to go with camelcamelcamel.

u/pa-guy · 2 pointsr/kindle

Based on your requirements, get the Kindle DX:

  • just plain, no LED - yes
  • big screen (over 6 in) - yes
  • accepts .mobi files from computer - yes (get Calibre, e-mail them, or drop them via Amazon Cloud)

    If you're open to a smaller device, I highly recommend the Paperwhite 2. It's cheaper, but I think it has nicer features. The always on light isn't an eye strain but instead serves to make the background just look white as if you're reading off of good paper. The DX doesn't have a backlight, so you would need an external light source if you want to read as it gets dark out.
u/Jacob2040 · 4 pointsr/kindle

You an find warehouse deals if you look closely. I got mine there and nothing was really wrong, just go for like new if you're worried. (also did a search for you just in Case.

u/metalbark · 2 pointsr/kindle

I like my slim paperwhite case because the fake leather or otherwise textured skin makes me feel like it is less of a tech screen item.

Also, opening the case wakes it up and unlocks the screen.

u/Fr0gm4n · 6 pointsr/kindle

They tell you what the conditions are that they advertise it under. More use == more power use. It's simple: If you read more than they tested, or turn on the wifi, or use brighter lighting, your battery life will drop. If you double the amount of time reading per day you can probably halve the battery life. What's even close to false about their advertising?

> A single charge lasts up to six (6) weeks, based on a half hour of reading per day with wireless off and the light setting at 13. Battery life will vary based on light settings, wireless usage. Audible audiobook streaming over Bluetooth will reduce battery life.

EDIT: I have PW 1st generation that I got as a gift. Should I wait for a bigger price drop or a new PW model to come out?

u/XIIXOO · 1 pointr/kindle

I'm waiting for my Fintie case to come in. It was 10.99 yesterday, up to 11.99 today. Still a bargain. See reviews here.

u/ryanmercer · 1 pointr/kindle

129.99 USD, not bad for a paperwhite with a cellular radio.

The regular Kindle that Amazon sells today is not a touchscreen either.

Here's a link to the official case for older Paperwhites on Amazon USA:

They also have a premium leather case for older Paperwhites:

It's listed on the UK Amazon:


The White version of the paperwhite is under the same listing as the black one.

Just link directly to the Amazon page

This case on Amazon is $12 and has ridiculously good reviews.

Are you using Amazon's non-lighted leather cover? There's a known problem with the old design (although they claim they've fixed it with the updated design). My Kindle keyboard froze and rebooted repeatedly until I removed the cover. I think the problem was that the clips that hold the Kindle contact the electronics inside and cause a short. Amazon upgraded me to the lighted cover for free, and I haven't had a problem since.

u/docfelt · 5 pointsr/kindle


You're correct. Notice that it's not being sold by amazon anymore, but by other outlets.

u/4a4a · 2 pointsr/kindle

Yes, you can see here that $99.99 is the lowest it has ever been.

u/mattze · 2 pointsr/kindle

Haha. While I always wanted to visited that part of Europe, I have a feeling travel costs might eat up some of the savings ;)

I thought Lithuania was already a EURO-member, but that will probably take until next year (at the earliest). That complicates matters further.

I just check the Amazon Global site and it costs $69 there, which is just 2€ more than the price in Germany. Am I missing something?

u/Generator1stFloor · -1 pointsr/kindle

Eh? Are you talking about this one?

Or perhaps you'd prefer without the light?

Those ones are in stock all the time. Or maybe you're looking for a case for your 2nd Gen Kindle? You can indeed only find those used on the site anymore.

u/eothred · 2 pointsr/kindle

I have the same kindle version with this cover:

Quite expensive though, but I found the reading light very convenient

u/TheBrownDandy · 2 pointsr/kindle

I assume he's talking about the 4th gen cases such as this:

u/wlu56 · 7 pointsr/kindle

i believe its the Amazon Kindle Lighted Leather Cover click here!

I got a refurbished 2nd-gen Paperwhite earlier this month for $85; it's back up to $109 now. Based on the price history, I wouldn't expect that to happen very often...

Certified Refurbished Kindle Paperwhite on Amazon
Price history on Camelcamelcamel

u/knighttim · 5 pointsr/kindle

You should buy it today, as it is on sale for $85 refurbished from amazon.

u/Sam301 · 2 pointsr/kindle

There is a sale on the Wifi-only refurbished Paperwhite (with ads) today for $79 ($30 off).

u/ChefTimmy · 2 pointsr/kindle

If it really is normally $37, the OMOTON appears to be identical, at $14-16, depending on color.

u/ScubaSteve1219 · 1 pointr/kindle

my go-to recommendation is always OMOTON brand cases

u/Azuretower · 1 pointr/kindle

this page lists the UPC which is what you're looking for

u/narutouz · 1 pointr/kindle

Third Generation Kindle
Touch is $35.

u/zvengenz · 1 pointr/kindle

Here it is. I was looking for this model because of the price, the Paperwhite is quite expensive.

u/crdlb · 7 pointsr/kindle

If you're not in a hurry, you could at least wait for the current model Paperwhite to go on sale for $100, which it does fairly regularly.

u/rharmelink · 1 pointr/kindle

If you can wait, this price alert service that I use shows that they regularly reduce the price by $20:

In the meantime, if they make an announcement...

u/LUH-3417 · 2 pointsr/kindle

The .de one? I've been following it via this site and it doesn't seem to have been on sale for about six weeks.

u/blackesthearted · 2 pointsr/kindle

They still have refurbished 7th gens (3rd gen PW) listed:

I bought my PW3 refurbished (from Amazon) and aside from getting it in a plain brown box, it was indistinguishable from new, and has the same 1-year warranty.

u/trinhno · 10 pointsr/kindle

Just get a refurbished kindle from Amazon. Same warranty as the usual Kindle.

You can wait for a price drop as well, another $20 off. (or maybe $10, but that's still considerable from a brand new one.)

u/zaliman · 5 pointsr/kindle

Walnew Case I have been using while I patiently await an official case refresh. The only problem I've had with it is that it sometimes turns on kindle with magnets when you put in the case, so you have to make sure it didn't switch on the device when putting away.

u/TheeBaconKing · 5 pointsr/kindle

Amazon Kindle Paperwhite Leather Case, Onyx Black - fits all Paperwhite generations

I like this a lot! I was able to get it stupid cheap a few years ago.

u/pabloqc · 1 pointr/kindle

From the website:

It does not support Audible, kindle basic and the oasis, they do

u/Eraser1024 · 2 pointsr/kindle

I wouldn't buy a case with strap like this one (this is some random case, looks decent btw). It's metal button can damage the screen and it distracts the reader. If you want a strap look for a case like this one (random as well).

u/Mo_Tzu · 2 pointsr/kindle

This isn't the basic kindle?

I have no idea which version it is, but it's not the paperwhite.

u/Etunimi · 4 pointsr/kindle

> Too bad it is not available for shipping in the Philippines.

Are you sure?

E.g. International Kindle Paperwhite:

"This product can be shipped to Philippines."

The US versions don't ship internationally, there are separate listings for international Kindles.

u/AlohaSquash · 1 pointr/kindle

I've spent a lot of time today trying to figure out the difference between the two Kindle Paperwhites that are listed on the Amazon page. I saw the $99 you mentioned, but as far as I can tell, the two listed on their website look identical. Why would one be priced higher? Is one an older edition? Neither page shows which Kindle Paperwhite edition it is which is dumbfounding.

This one is $99:

this one is $139:

u/nandhp · 2 pointsr/kindle

I'm not sure that's true. Some books (like this one) say at the very bottom of the description:

> At the publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management software (DRM) applied.

(Although I haven't actually bought the book, so I can't tell you if it's lying or not.)
