Find the Cheapest Kindle

Cheapest Kindle: What's the Best Deal on Amazon Kindle?

With so many Kindles offered, it's no surprise if you're asking "what's the cheapest Kindle?" Amazon currently offers several models, ranging from a simple e-reader to a full-color smart reader. Some Kindles even give you the choice between having ads displayed or not. It can be difficult to determine what the cheapest one is--and more importantly--what the cheapest one is for you.

With so many options, how do you choose? If you're looking for the cheapest Kindle (like I was), the choice is easy. I've given several of these as gifts (and gave it many times this past Christmas), so read on to learn what I choose as the best low-cost Kindle, hands-down.

My Journey

Why was this important to me?

When I was searching for a Kindle, I was immediately overwhelmed at all the choices -- touchscreen or not? Color or not? Someone a relatively new invention had so much to choose from!

For me, I knew I wanted in inexpensive model that was primarily for reading. I use other options for web-surfing, email, etc. I strictly wanted to be able to read (I live in FL, too, so being able to read in direct sunlight was important to me) and not have it cost me an arm and a leg.

Read on for a sneak peek into my decision-making process!

The cheapest Kindle starts at a low price of only $69. This is much different from when the Kindle was first announced many years ago--you're saving hundreds of dollars off that original price. This cheap Kindle is the cheapest Kindle available because ads are displayed--that is the only difference between the $69 Kindle and the $89 Kindle.

At first, I thought this might be distracting (for those of you with smart phones, you know how annoying it can be when you are in the middle of playing of game and an advertisement interrupts your play), however, these have a distinct advantage--on top of this cheap price! Read on to learn more.

 

Cheapest Kindle Available: $89 - What's the Difference?: No ads

This cheap option is your classic Kindle. This device doesn't display ads, so you'll be getting a traditional reading experience--no bells and whistles necessary.The difference between the $89 version and the $69 version is just that: no ads on this cheap Kindle. If you're looking for as close a experience to reading an actual book, this option is for you.

That is a super-low deal on your classic Kindle. This is the perfect gift for avid readers, travelers and so many more.

 

Which Did I Choose?

Should You Choose Ads or No Ads?

...and what I picked!

The only difference between these two Kindle Paperwhite with Ads--I love the ease of tapping to turn the pages which allows me to use either hand. This was important for me because I read in several different body positions. If I'm laying in bed, reclining on the beach or sitting on a plane, my hands shift. The tap feature doesn't require me to adjust my hands to read.

      You know I think the Kindle is a heck of a bargain. I bought both kids the Kindle Fire HD and they love them. Great for books, surfing the web and playing with all their favorite apps. You can't beat Kindle when it comes to price and quality.

      I'm planning on getting my ten year old daughter a Kindle Fire for her birthday present this year. These are great for motivating young readers.

      I really like this lens :) It's straight to the point and helpful. I'd like to get the Kindle Touch... never really knew about the ads before. Now, I'm wondering "are the links to Amazon's own site or to a 3rd party." Thanks for the information you provided. I never really knew how awesome eReaders really are until I held one in a store. It's amazing how they really do look like paper and how much you can do with them (buy, share, lend etc).

      I think the ads sound like a perk!
