First discount on Kindle Voyage! Only for Prime members (PW3 also discounted)
Amazon introduced the top of the line
more than a year ago (in September of 2014). People who have them tend to like them: 4.4 stars out of 5 average rating, with 7,404 customer reviews at time of writing.
While it doesn’t have audio (so no text-to-speech…a major drawback for me), it is otherwise pretty objectively superior to the
It’s lighter, smaller (with the same screen size), and has “page press” buttons.
However, while the PW3 has gone on sale repeatedly in the last year, the Voyage hasn’t been playing that game.
Right now, though, either of the two are $30 off for a limited time…but only for
That brings the Voyage, in its least expensive configuration, down to $169.99…and the PW3 to as low as $89.99. That’s only $10 more for the PW3 than the entry level Kindle…which doesn’t have the frontlighting that made the PW the most comfortable reading experience I’d ever had (including paper).
I get why Prime may not make sense for some people…but if you can afford the investment in it, and you spend enough at Amazon, it can make a lot of sense. Prime members get so many things, including early access to some of the Black Friday sales.
I’m only guessing, but I would think that if you spend $500 in a year at Amazon on new items (not from the Marketplace), Prime is likely to be a cost benefit to you. I haven’t done the calculations, but that’s my feeling. 😉
They don’t say how long this sale will last, but if you are in the market for a new EBR (E-Book Reader), especially for the holidays, this is a good deal.

* I am linking to the same thing at the regular Amazon site, and at AmazonSmile. When you shop at AmazonSmile, half a percent of your purchase price on eligible items goes to a non-profit you choose. It will feel just like shopping at Amazon: you’ll be using your same account. The one thing for you that is different is that you pick a non-profit the first time you go (which you can change whenever you want)…and the good feeling you’ll get. Shop ’til you help!
