Kindle Price Cut.

It looks like the Kindle Voyage, and the Kindle Paperwhite, both have permanent price cuts. The Kindle Voyage is showing up as having a regular price of $149.99 and the Paperwhite having a regular price of $89.99

It looks like it is $50 to remove the special offers from the Paperwhite, didn't it used to be less to remove the special offers?

Back up to $120 again. (I did see the $90 price in the Kindle line-up temporarily, but not when I clicked on it.) I don't know if it was a screw up or if they had some kind of flash sale.

EDIT: Something is going on. You currently can't buy one with 3G or without special offers. Is the new Paperwhite about to be announced?

Gotta be a glitch. The main product page still says $119.99, but Customize makes it $89.99. Should be $20 more (same as if you remove them later). And according to a number of people you can get them removed for free if you call customer support.

It would be nice if Amazon actually made some Special Offers. I remember when SO's were introduced, being offered some nice deals. Like paying $10 and getting a $20 gift card. Now they are just ads.

It is really messed up right now. The price for the Paperwhite with Special Offers is back up to $119.99. However if you buy the white one, it is $30 cheaper than that, and buying it without ads is $109.99. Here is a screenshot.

I noticed that, but you have to get to the Customize page. And now it's $20 to get rid of special offers (like it's supposed to be). $100 more to get 3G.

This is getting weird.

Paperwhite (both colors) showing as $119 for me. Voyage is $149, but it's only available in the wifi version with special offers... wonder if a new one is on the horizon, or if it's being discontinued?

Same here, now. They seem to be playing around with the Paperwhite pages for some reason. I've got a feeling a new one is on the way.

As for Voyages ... I may be wrong, but I think this will be the end of them.

I've held out all this time, just bought one yesterday, so yes, there will be a new reader announced in a couple weeks!! Never fails, if I buy something either the price drops significantly or a new model comes out almost immediately.

If you bought from Amazon, you can cancel or return it.

It is still messed up. Right now if you go to Amazon it is $119.99, but if you click on it, it says it is $89.99. Then if you customize it, to add it to your cart, it is back up to $119.99.

I think the next Paperwhite is likely to have Bluetooth audio and 8GB storage. Maybe a new CPU/GPU so Invert Black & White feature is available.

If they were to add TTS (or at least ability to download additional voices for VoiceView), & enable immersion reading, I’d probably be interested, but I am otherwise pretty happy with Voyage.

Immersion is unlikely to happen on an e-ink Kindle.
