There are a number of Kindle deals available for Father’s Day that cut the price of the Kindle Fire HD, Kindle Fire HDX, Kindle Paperwhite and Kindle just in time to make the perfect gift to dad, or to yourself.
This follows up on a iPad mini deal that dropped the price down to $199 for the older model, which is understandably hard to find in stock.
If you want to get dad a Kindle Fire or a Kindle eReader for Father’s Day this year, you can find a variety of Kindle sales for $20 to $40 off the latest models. The best Kindle deals come from Staples and other retailers that are offering deeper discounts than Amazon, with in store pickup and shipping in time for Father’s Day.
Amazon is hosting an event next week to announce a new product, but it is likely a Fire Smartphone of some kind, rather than a new Kindle Fire HDX or a Kindle Paperwhite 2014 update. If by some chance Amazon does announce any of these new products you can always return the Kindle deal you picked up this week.
These deals run through June 14th, but supplies may run out if you don’t act fast, so keep that in mind if you see Kindle deals you need to buy for dad.
Check out the breakouts below for more information on the best Kindle deals we can find. After this sale, don’t expect widespread Kindle deals until Black Friday.
Kindle Fire HD Deals
The Kindle Fire HD is an older Kindle Fire model, but still very popular thanks to the cheaper price. You can buy this with 8GB or 16GB of storage depending how many movies or games you want to keep on it, and save $20 to $40 on it. The Kindle Fire HD comes with a 7-inch display. It does not include the same help features that the Kindle Fire HDX includes.
Kindle Fire HDX Deals
The Kindle Fire HDX is the newest Kindle Fire model, that Amazon announced in 2013. This is a popular tablet that offers a 7-inch or a 8.9-inch display option. The Kindle Fire HDX is lighter and includes a better looking display than the Kindle Fire HD. Users also get Mayday, one touch access to Kindle Fire HDX support. If you are buying this for dad, and you assume he will have a lot of questions this is an upgrade to get. You can also order this with 4G LTE, which means he can connect anywhere there is an AT&T or Verizon signal.
If you need more storage or LTE options you can save $30 off any of the other models at each of the above stores.
Kindle Paperwhite Deals
The Kindle Paperwhite is an eReader with a light built in that makes it easy to read in the dark as well as in bright light. This features a 6-inch e-ink screen. If dad is a big reader this is an option you need to check out. It is lighter than a tablet, and can hold over 1,000 books. This is for the WiFi model, so it will only connect when there is a WiFi network around. They sell a 3G model that is more expensive, but still on sale at Best Buy.
Kindle WiFi Deals
If you want the cheapest Kindle the base model offers a 6-inch e-ink display, but doesn’t offer a lit up screen like the Paperwhite. This model includes enough storage for over 1,000 books and is a great first ebook reader device. There are many accessories and cases that make it easier to read in the dark, but if you really plan to read in the dark it may be worth splurging on the Paperwhite.
