In the market for an eBook reader and don’t need all the bells and whistles? Amazon’s entry-level Kindle has a 6 inch, E Ink touchscreen display and a list price of $79.

But Amazon is currently selling that model for just $59… and Staples has it for the same price. What’s more, Staples is offering a $30 Visa prepaid gift card when you buy a Kindle.

That means you can get an Amazon Kindle for just $29 after rebate.


This isn’t last year’s model or a refurbished unit. It’s a brand new eReader with 4GB of storage, WiFi, and an ePaper display which can handle 16 shades of gray and which has 167 pixels per inch.

It weighs 6.7 ounces, measures 0.4 inches thick, and offers up to a month of battery life.

The entry-level Kindle doesn’t have an illuminated screen, a speaker or headphone jack, or a screen that sits flush with the case. You’ll need a more expensive (or older) model to get those features.

But $29 is a pretty great price if you’re looking for your first eReader or a replacement device.

    1. Did you purchase one? I didn’t order until last day of 27th. I turned in rebate online and just got email saying it was invalid…. If I don’t get my rebate I will be mad!
