    I'll definitely check it out ... but will be surprised to see a NEW kindle. Likely deals on existing models, however, for those looking for a stand by replacement or back up device.

    Does anyone remember if the Oasis was on sale during prime day last year? I decided to trade in my Voyage to get an Oasis and I just shipped my Voyage out today, so the trade should be finalized before prime day and I am hoping to be able to catch it while it is on sale with the gift card and extra 20% off I will get from the trade in.

    Only thing I can suggest is to watch for it. It seems likely, but not certain, by any means.

    Oh I'm definitely going to keep an eye on the prices and not order until prime day unless they run a deal before then. I still have to wait for my trade to be received and the discount and gift card to be added to my account before I can order anyway.

    I am seeing sales on all sorts of Amazon devices. I noticed several for Oasis.
    What I have not found is a discount on Kindle Unlimited. I typically buy 6 months to a year at a time on Prime Day.

    I saw the Oasis, hopefully some can get in that deal. I already have one, but that is a great price. now.

    I'll see what I can find about KU. I am still good as I bought 2 years I think last year. I'll have to check.

    eta: So I found where the KU sale is.

    NOt sure if this page works, but you can extend your subscription here for all the usual sale prices.

    https://www.amazon.com/kindle-dbs/promoLanding?promoCode=00f4a332-f167-4832-8a2d-ea0f7a921e07&campaignId=00f4a332-f167-4832-8a2d-ea0f7a921e07&ref_=

    Or here click on "extend your membership"
    https://www.amazon.com/kindle-dbs/hz/bookshelf

    If those pages don't work, since it might not being on my account, use the left drop down on amazon main page. Go to kindes and kindle books, then under kindle books click on unlimited. It will show you your page with your membership options and all that. One of the small blue clickable menu items is extend your membership. Along with manage your sub, browse. Middle of page.

    I am still good until July 2022. So no need this year.

    I was excited for the Oasis deal. I just traded in my voyage so I got the 20% off of the original $249.99 price then the $75 prime day savings and my $50 gift card for my Voyage so a nice upgrade for very little money.

    Looks like all 3 current kindle models are on sale. AND you get a $5 ebook credit, too. I already have 4 kindles in the house, though, so I really don't need another. :o

    Should I get a basic Kindle?

    I already have the Paperwhite 4 (2018), but automatic downloads stopped working months ago. Granted, that could be a software or server issue and end up affecting this Kindle too, but it only happens on the Paperwhite and not the phone/tablet app.

    P.S. Wrong board to ask this, I know, but is there a coupon code for physical books this year?

    This is the only deal I've done so far.

    Buy a $40 Amazon gift card, get a $10 bonus credit

    Not seeing an offer to extend KU in my account. I will try chatting with them tomorrow.

    I have not seen a physical book coupon.

    Personally I did not like the last basic kindle model. It felt cheap and plastic-y to me. But your mileage may vary... It might be an inexpensive replacement for your paperwhite.

    Thanks!  The earlier link is now letting me extend my membership at the discounted prices.  It says to redeem before 12/31/20.
