I’ve been banging this drum for a while, but Amazon’s Kindle Kids and Kindle Paperwhite Kids are better bargains than the non-Kids variants. The hardware is identical, but for a few bucks more Amazon throws in a case with a magnetic screen cover, no ads on the lock screen, a 2-year “worry-free guarantee” and a 1-year subscription to Amazon Kids+. If you buy one for a kid, it’s all set up and ready for you to set parental controls out of the box. If it’s for you (or another grown up), just disable the Kids profile and use it like a regular device.

Anyway, there’s even less reason to get the non-Kids versions this week, because Amazon is running a sale on all Kindle devices… and while every model is marked down at the moment, the Kindle Kids and Kindle Paperwhite Kids are discounted even more than the standard models – and basically you can now pay $80 for the Kindle or Kindle Kids or $110 for the Kindle Paperwhite or Kindle Paperwhite Kids.

Here’s a roundup of some of the day’s best deals.

  1. Cool, good to know. My wife insisted on the Paperwhite Signature Edition for the extra storage and wireless charging, worth it to me, but part of that decision was we thought it would cost $20 to remove the ads. Maybe I will recommend the kids edition from now on too.

  2. There are no ads in the kids interface, if you leave that and go the adult interface the ads show back up. Per their own listing…

    “5: Will my kid see Ads while using this device?
    Kindle Kids is automatically set up for your kid to enjoy an ad-free experience. However if you exit Amazon Kids using a passcode, sponsored screensavers will be displayed on the device’s lockscreen. Learn More About Ads On Kindle and Fire Tablet.”

    1. That’s if you exit using passcode… if you disable the kids account altogether, there are no ads. At least that’s been the case on the Kindle Paperwhite Kids I’ve been using for the past 1.5 years.
