You don’t have to spend a ton of money to get your hands on great tech. Today only, Woot is offering the 8th-generation Amazon Kindle for only $34.99 as well as the previous-gen Amazon Kindle Oasis from just $179.99. If you’re spending way more time indoors these days, snagging one of Amazon’s well-reviewed e-readers makes total sense, especially with deals like these.
The Kindle on sale is the device is the previous-gen base-spec model originally released in 2016. Though it was replaced in 2019 by a new model, the 8th-gen device is still an awesome pickup, especially at this price. It’s offered in refurbished condition and even includes a 1-year Amazon warranty for just $35. That’s around $15 less than what Amazon usually charges for its refurb models.
The Kindle features a glare-free display and a battery that lasts for weeks on a single charge. This deal is on the model with special offers, which are tasteful, unobtrusive ads that display on your lock screen. The device itself is thin and lightweight, and the e-ink display reads like real paper. Note that this model does not feature a backlight like the 2019 Kindle.
The Kindle Oasis on sale today isn’t the newest model that Amazon recently released, though it is still offered in brand new condition unlike a lot of Woot deals. With prices from $179.99, you’re saving up to $100. Though the 2019 version features a new color adjustable front light, the rest of the specs remained pretty much unchanged so you can save by going for the previous-gen model on sale.
As Amazon’s premium reading tablet, the Oasis provides the best resolution among any other Kindle device at 300ppi. It’s even waterproof with an IPX8 rating, meaning you can read it at the beach, when sitting by the pool, or even when taking a bath without having to worry too much about water damage.
What’s more, it has a glare-free screen, so you can use it anywhere without casting harmful reflections into your face. The screen is pushed to one side making it easier for you to hold the device in one hand. Arm tired? Flip it around and use the other hand for a while. If your eyes need a rest, you can also simply pair your favorite Bluetooth headphones to the device and listen to your book using Audible.
