Paperwhite 4 on sale now for $89.99

The latest kindle Paperwhite - 10th generation/Paperwhite 4 - is now down to $89.99: https://www.amazon.com/All-new-Kindl.../dp/B07CXG6C9W
I got this a few weeks ago when it dropped to $99. I guess I should have waited. I don't recall Amazon ever discounting a new device like this.

Tempting, very tempting... but I really want a Kindle with temperature settings. I wonder if they’re making room for an updated model.

Camelcamelcamel seems to disagree https://camelcamelcamel.com/All-New-...uct/B07CXG6C9W

But I'm not saying you're wrong

EDIT: And given that the cheapest Kindle Manga (32 GB PW3) on ebay at the time of this posting is $125.99, whereas a 32 GB PW4 is $119 from Amazon...

I seem to remember there being some sort of more complicated promotion going on at that time, which would make camelcamelcamel and you both sort of right, I'm going to go try to educate myself by going over the archives of the forum.

I think $90 was the price they were selling the Paperwhite 3 for during the Black Friday through after New Years. I don't think the PW 4 went on sale until the PW 3s disappeared again (about the time it would have sold for $100). I'm surprised to see this price also. (But they say it's one day sale only.) If I didn't already have like 4,000 eReaders ...

EDIT: The 32 GB version is on sale for $120, normally $160.

The newest Paperwhite was $99 on Dec. 16th. Many of the tech blogs still show the info.

At any rate, $90 is a good deal for the newest Paperwhite. ($110 if like me you can't stand ads.)

PW3 was $79 Black Friday onwards until it ran out then the PW4 went on sale for $99. If the PW4 was ever $89, pricing might have been limited for select customers only.

You're right. I've got a good memory, but it's short. That was a REALLY good deal on the PW3s. (Really good for the PW4s as well, but I think this sale is going away quickly — I'm assuming the "today only" blurb for the Essentials Bundle applies to the PW4 as well.)

You get pretty nonchalant about these sales however, as it seems they come back quite a bit (except when you actually want to buy a Kindle).

Lol, only reason I even remembered was because I bought a PW3 (after Amazon dropped non-SO version to $80). That PW3 was the source of the 5.9.6.1 factory firmware.

Price is definitely tempting but I have three PW4's already and I think four or five PW3's...

How do you manage each or are they loaded the same?

  1. PW3 (32GB black) - registered, used mostly for normal books and Amazon purchases/borrows, loaded/synced over wifi (Amazon or Calibre server)
  2. PW4 (32GB black) - registered, used mostly for normal books and Amazon purchases/borrows, loaded/synced over wifi (Amazon or Calibre server)
  3. PW3 (32GB white) - unregistered, used for USB sideloaded manga and fanfic
  4. PW3 (4GB black) - unregistered, used for USB sideloaded fanfic

I use different cases to help identify devices. I usually carry one registered and one unregistered Kindle in my purse.

The sideloaded fanfic are identical. I use Calibre to create a "master" copy of my TBR pile on my SSD which then gets synced to the Kindles' documents folder. I just manually remember last read position.

Rest are jail broken, powered down and sitting inside the drawer as backup in case Amazon manages to completely block jail breaking in future.
