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.

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.

Which Did I Choose?
Should You Choose Ads or No Ads?
...and what I picked!
The only difference between these two --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. Kindle Paperwhite with Ads
