TL;DR: You’ll save 15% on Amazon’s tenth-generation Kindle Paperwhite and receive $20 in e-book credits when you apply the code READKINDLE00 during checkout.


Have you got your calendar marked for Nov. 22? Good — that’s when Amazon’s Black Friday deals officially begin.

BestBlackFriday.com reports that Amazon’s tablets will be the first of its devices to go on sale, most notably its tenth-generation Kindle Paperwhite. The 8GB version of last year’s lightweight and waterproof 6-inch e-reader is expected to drop $45 to a mere $84.99, which would be its lowest price on the site thus far.

That’s all fine and good, but we’ll let you in on a little secret: Even if you miss that specific sale, you still have a way of scoring an amazing deal on the Paperwhite. You see, Amazon just launched a secret holiday promotion that’s live through Dec. 31 where you’ll get 15% off that e-reader and $20 in bonus e-book credits just by entering the code READKINDLE00 at checkout. On top of that, you’ll also get three months of Kindle Unlimited for free with your purchase. (That one doesn’t require any codes; you just have to select it on the product page.)

This offer isn’t being advertised widely around Amazon’s site — we didn’t know it was happening until we visited the Paperwhite’s product page — but yeah, it’s a thing. And it’s a really, really good deal.

Let’s break down these savings: If you apply that READKINDLE00 code to the 8GB Paperwhite (normally $129.99), you’ll bring its price down to $110.49. If you then factor in the promotion’s $20 e-book credit and the value of three months of Kindle Unlimited ($29.97), you’ll be saving a total of $69.47 when everything is said and done. I’m no math whiz, but that’s an even better deal than its Black Friday pricing, no?

Get your holiday shopping off to a good start by heading over to Amazon to take advantage of this deal today.
