TL;DR: This ninth-generation Kindle Oasis e-reader with built-in Audible is on sale for $199.99 — a $50 markdown — and comes with a free three-month trial of Amazon’s Kindle Unlimited ebook service.


ICYMI, the new Kindle Oasis officially went up for preorder earlier this week. Amazon touts this version of its e-reader as its “most advanced Kindle ever,” having armed it with a new adjustable warm light that makes nighttime reading easier on your eyes.

That’s all fine and dandy, but at a base price of $250, the device isn’t exactly cheap. Our own Alex Perry made a good point: “You could get the default iPad for less than $100 more and it would be able to do a lot more.”

You could definitely do that. You could also just pop over to Amazon right now to get the Kindle Oasis’ predecessor — the ninth-generation model — on sale for under $200. It’s missing that new warm light feature, but other than that, it’s basically the same device for a fraction of the price. INTO IT.

Designed for all sorts of reading environments, the ninth-gen Oasis features an adjustable front light and a 167 ppi glare-free display that reads just like real paper. It’s super thin and lightweight — perfect for one-handed reading — and includes 8GB of storage for thousands of titles.

This Oasis also comes equipped with Amazon’s Audible entertainment service so you can both read *and* listen to all of your favorite books. (Don’t have an Audible membership? Be sure to take advantage of Amazon’s current offer and get yourself an Echo Dot for just 99 cents.) 

And just to sweeten the deal even further, Amazon will give you a free three-month trial of its Kindle Unlimited ebook service for buying the ninth-gen Oasis. Normally $9.99 a month, it’ll put more than one million titles and thousands of audiobooks at your fingertips.

The ninth-gen Kindle Oasis e-reader typically retails for $249.99, but you can snag one today for just $199.99 — a 20% savings.
