Whether you’re looking for a basic Amazon Kindle or the company’s newest tablet offering, the Kindle Fire HDX, there’s sure to be a Father’s Day deal for you and your dad, thanks to a number of third-party retailers, as well as Amazon itself. Here’s a brief compendium of the available Kindle device deals currently being offered ahead of Father’s Day.
The entry-level Amazon Kindle comes with a 6-inch e-ink display, and can store over 1,000 e-books. As it’s free of the bells and whistles present on the Kindle Paperwhite, this makes for a good starter device for anyone who doesn’t have much experience with e-readers. Pricing is now at only $49 (reg. price $69) at Best Buy and Staples if you’re looking to buy this device right now.
As for the Paperwhite, Best Buy and Staples are also selling it for $20 off, making it only $99 instead of the usual $119. Like the original Kindle Wi-Fi, the Kindle Paperwhite also has a 6-inch e-ink display and holds more than a thousand books, but has a lit-up screen and other improvements over its predecessor.
Now if you’re looking to buy a tablet for your dad this Father’s Day, you may want to buy him the “latest and the greatest”, or, in this case, the Kindle Fire HDX. Both 7-inch and 8.9-inch editions are notable for the Mayday button, which allows users to get immediate customer service with the press of that one button.
Both devices also come with 1920 x 1200 Full HD resolution, an upgrade over the 1280 x 800 Kindle Fire HD. Pricing starts at $199 on Amazon, Best Buy, and Staples for the 16 GB Kindle Fire HDX with 7-inch display. The Kindle Fire HD, on the other hand, costs $119 and up for the 8 GB 7-inch edition, also on Amazon, Best Buy, and Staples; that’s $20 off the regular selling price of the base Fire HD tablet.
