Amazon will give 20% off of the purchase of a new Kindle if you trade in your old Kindle. And they’ve give you $5 in gift credit as well. If you’re like me, you have ancient Kindles lying around waiting for this opportunity.
The Kindle Oasis, in it’s highest end configuration (32GB, Wifi+3G, no ads) is $349. 20% off is $70 off the retail, bringing it down to $275, if you use the $5 credit.
I’m not even sure that the device needs to be in full working condition to get the 20% off. It didn’t seem so. I have a Kindle 3G 3rd generation that doesn’t hold a charge any more that I’m probably going to send in for a discount on another Kindle Paperwhite.
Don’t forget to hard reset your device before you send it in! (Search this blog for instructions on how to do that.)
