No discount on the one that needs it the most; the Kindle Oasis! Still £270 oO

https://www.amazon.co.uk/All-New-Leather-Charging-High-Resolution-Display/dp/B010EK1GOE

(I still can't justify upgrading from my Keyboard 3G )
John Lewis, Argos, Tesco, etc all matching offer... I'm buying from John Lewis later as I have vouchers to spend

Anyone know how long the offer will last?
It's related to Father's Day so definitely over by the 19th.. but there's probably a date range noted somewhere.

The Paperwhite is amazing, best of the lot in my opinion

(I still can't justify upgrading from my Keyboard 3G )


I replaced my Kindle Keyboard with a Voyage about a month ago (a whisker over £100 delivered, following a fair bit of negotiating with Amazon)... and you're right. The haptic sensors are good, but not as good as the buttons were. The nicer screen is good, but not a game-changer. The front-lit screen can be useful, but not £100-useful. The smaller size (due to no keyboard) took a bit of getting used to, but now... yeah, OK, that's a bit better.

You're safe to stick with your Kindle Keyboard for now, IMO. Although the Voyage is an adequate replacement should it break.

What I like the best about the Keyboard 3G is that I can use it as a v.basic web browser, wherever I am in the world. The 3G allowance is no longer unlimited - but in a pinch, I have found it to be really useful (especially in Africa where mobile broadband normally costs a fortune!).
Oh, and I couldn't do without the book delivery via 3G...v.helpful

One thing Amazon could/should do (and would make me consider an upgrade) is adding a gorilla glass screen. The K3G screen is very fragile - and means I have to keep it in a chunky protective case..which I'd rather not do.

Yeah ive been rolling with the Keyboard 3G myself since it came out around £150 i believe but was lucky enough to of picked up the latest 3rd Gen Paperwhite from the Tesco's deal for £39 the other week and its definitely a better experience TBF.

£39? I'd have been interested in that for the backlit screen. But I still probably would have hesitated :).

Wooah there. I can cope with losing my keyboard....but Amazon ain't nicking my page turn buttons! The Keyboard 3G lives on

Yes, I can't get used to that.


Are the page turn buttons that big an issue? I'm pretty sure the paperwhite will suit me, even though my last one was the Kindle Keyboard with the manual page turn buttons. Surely it's no real hassle to touch the screen to move page?

Ask customer service to apply the deal retrospectively. If you ask nicely they will usually help you out...
Typical. I just bought a Paperwhite on Ebay which was from an airport Lost & Found auction for £50 without all the benefits of linking it to my Amazon account...for another £37 a brand new one is tempting. Have some heat!

Sounds like a rather convoluted way of buying a Kindle. Why not just get one off of Gumtree - where you can get the original owner to delink it from their Amazon account?!
OP hasn't mentioned that these are all 'with offers' prices. Price goes up a few quid when you remove special offers - that said you can often get customer services to take them off for free if you push.

I've never trusted Gumtree since trying to sell on there before and being swamped by dodgy offers of bank trnasfers, Western Union and vouchers tbh. Would never really have considered it...but guess it is a valid option if you find a genuine seller.

EDIT: Just looked now on Gumtree and couldn't find any 4GB models (same as mine) for less than £90!

I tend to only buy and sell using Gumtree. I got my Microsoft Surface 3 128GB/4GB with pen and W10 Pro and typecover + 2 months warranty...in pristine condition....for £200 !
Plenty of other bargains too...definitely worth a look for most items. & even if things are far from you, as long as the seller accepts Paypal with Buyer Protection, then you have as much consumer protection as you do on Ebay.
£48-£136 for a Kindle?

Just a rip off as you can get it on your phone for free (along with the superior Play Books and audiobook playback)!!

It's personal choice, of course.

With the Kool Kindle Keyboard, you can leave your thumb on the button and just squeeze every time you want to move page. It's a comfortable grip, exceedingly easy for one hand. With the touch-screens, every time you want to change page, you have to move your thumb off the bezel, move your thumb over the screen, move your thumb onto the screen, take your thumb off the screen, move your thumb over the bezel, and grip again. It's more than just a squeeze. And it's also a slight chore if you occasionally want to flip back a page because you're a bit brain-dead like me. Of course, some people will mind, and some people won't mind. It's not a big deal for everyone.

But that's just one reason why the KKK is great.

Nah, it's just not the same. I love my Kindle - reading a book on a phone (even a 5.5" screen one) just doesn't work in the same way as a Kindle. For a start, you have to spend the first 10 minutes adjusting the phone's position so that the light isn't reflecting back off it and making it nigh on impossible to read! I even found that with my Kindle Fire HDX (and other tablets I tried). It's also significantly lighter than a phone and once charged can last for months...no comparison.

Managed to get two @ £39 each from Tesco Direct. It was a misprice because they reduced the Kindle Fire to £39.99 but mistakenly also reduced to Paperwhite to £39.99.
I upgraded my old button kindle to a kindle voyage (not a touch screen fan - I want to read one-handed!) a couple of months ago. It took a while to reprogram my hand to the haptic sensor buttons but I absolutely love it now. A word of warning - mine spent the first week with the automatic front light randomly darkening and lightening. I was about to give up entirely on that setting and turn it off forever, when it suddenly stabilised and has been perfect ever since. I don't know if it had an update, or what, but the thing is damn near perfect now.
I picked up a second hand but excellent condition 4th generation Kindle from eBay some time ago. I love the buttons and it suits my needs. Not a fan of the more recent touch screen only versions even with higher definition and more memory etc

I'd be really surprised if Amazon blocked your account for availing yourself of longstanding and well founded consumer rights. I mean, sure, they can choose not to trade with you if they want, but it would cause an absolute shotstirm if they tried it over something like that. Amazon live and die by their no hassle returns policy. They start adding caveats here and there, and they're just some online retailer.

Aaah, another person who hasn't discovered Amazon's rather liberal use of account bans (both for individuals and entire properties).

They are banning no end of people - and a ban also prevents you from using any unspent gift card credit.

Look it up - (it's been discussed on Watchdog amongst other places)
Yep and they don't let you back
