Newsflash in case you have been trapped under a rock: Christmas and Hanukkah are both mere days away. That means the clock is ticking to find those perfect last-minute gifts. No pressure, though.
Lucky for you, Amazon still has some nice deals right now on Kindle e-readers and Fire tablets — up to $30 off, plus $5 in ebook credits on select purchases, and 3 months of Kindle Unlimited for only $0.99.
It’s the perfect gift for any bibliophile or movie fanatic in your life, offering access to thousands of titles that are available whenever and wherever. And best of all, if you’re an Amazon Prime member, you can enjoy free delivery to get the ebook reader in just the nick of time.
Stick with the basic Kindle e-reader starting as low as $69.99 for the bookworm who doesn’t need a lot of bells and whistles, just books. The 32GB of storage makes this a truly portable library with potentially thousands of titles at the ready from fast, direct downloads. Models are also designed to mimic real paper, with a 167ppi glare-free display that you can read in direct sunlight, so they are perfect for outdoors, too. Our Editors’ Choice, the Kindle Paperwhite, is even waterproof. And with Audible included, one can even get in a good book on that lengthy commute into work while keeping their eyes on the road.
For just a slight bump in price, you can grab an array of Fire tablets starting as low as $49.99 — including the latest Fire HD 10 for a more robust media experience at only $119.99 ($30 off). These are perfect for those who want a bit more entertainment to go along with their literature, like music and movie streaming. Now with larger HD displays that still manage to keep the weight down, the Fire tablets are designed to be multipurpose, Alexa-ready, portable media machines offering up to 12 hours of battery life. It really is the gift that keeps on giving.
With all these options available, you will finish your shopping in no time and avoid the holiday crunch in the process. Heck, why not pick up a Kindle for yourself, too?
