Time To Grab A Bargain!

Today I’m giving you the lowdown on what Amazon daily deals are as well as some other great offers to keep an eye out to get the best offer for Kindle electronics as well as Amazon Kindle Books. By the end of this post you’ll come away with more knowledge than most on how to tap into the secrets of the Amazon Marketplace.  These deals apply to your Kindle Paperwhite, Voyage and Oasis. So let’s jump in!

 

So What Is Amazon Daily Deals And What Should I Care?

In summary, Amazon daily deals offer customers a collection of EBooks for a heavily discounted price. But only for 24 hours. There are a wide range of titles offered but you do need to make a fairly quick decision to avoid missing out as they don’t tend to come back onto the daily deal cycle. They change over the book cycle as 12 am everyday, hence the name.

 

You can get some pretty amazing deals on books here. We’re talking in the range of 1$ – 3$ per book! Good luck heading to your local store to find the equivalent.

 

Some Example Daily Deals

On May 13th 2018, these 4 titles were on Amazon.com under the daily deal. Once the deal was over the price increased on average 30-40 % so it really does make a difference to get in early and grab a bargain if you like the sound of the book  

 

At the time of writing there were 4 deals on Amazon.com  but the amount can vary depending on the day.

 

The other great thing is that they’re not just random books you’ve never heard of from authors you’ve never heard of. I’ve seen on the platform a few times where they have best sellers so it’s worth keeping an eye out.

What About Other Daily Deals On Other Amazon Sites Such As Amazon Uk or Amazon Auz?

Good question. Even though they’re the same company in different countries, each Amazon offer widely different deals. For example on the Amazon UK site, their daily deals included garden furniture, facial spa equipment as well as a different set of Amazon Kindle books to download. You’ll need to check the rules with Amazon as some products they will ship internationally, others they won’t.

 

However for Kindle books this shouldn’t make a difference as they’re download to the device. They even represent the information differently, with the Amazon Auz website highlighting the discount from the original price up on the search results page.

At the time of writing, these were the daily deals on Amazon UK

 

What About Other Deals You Can Get On Amazon EReaders?

Now everyone loves getting a good bargain. The good news is that there are a few sites out there who can help you get the best deal with up to date coupon codes.

 

Groupon

Groupon regularly has a set of coupon codes available when you make certain purchases on the Amazon site. Make sure you check the T’s & C’s so you understand how to get the code:

Local Online Comparison sites

It’s worth taking a look at your counties local comparison websites to see if they’re offering any discounts. For example, at the time of writing Finder.com.au (Australian comparison site) is offering 10$ Kindle Paperwhites with no additional purchase

 

Seasonal Trends And Big Online Events

Word to the wise. There is always a sale on somewhere. There are a number of key events around the year where you can grab a bargain. And they don’t even have to be an event in your country.

 

For example, Mothers day in the Uk falls on the 31st March, whereas in Australia it’s on the 13th of May. This means you can grab a deal on both Mothers days, Providing that Amazon would ship that product to your country (they’ll let you know at the time when it’s been added to the cart).

 

There are a few other key events around the year including Black Friday and Cyber Monday which also usually give great discounts on Kindle’s as well as other electronics. Make sure you’re keeping at eye out for some of these key days to grab the best price.  

 

Another Way To Save – Kindle Unlimited

So you find yourself smashing through a EBook a week and are struggling to keep up with the cost of your reading obsession? Amazon’s taken care of that by offering a service call Kindle Unlimited. This means that for a monthly cost, you can download as many books as you want. At the time of writing they were offering a 30 day free trial, after which you can cancel at anytime.

 

Conclusion

So now you have more knowledge than the 99% on how to find the best Kindle Book deals on Amazon as well as how to get a discount on your next Kindle. Have you got a deal or coupon site you use to get an Amazon bargain? I’d love to hear from you!

 

Until next time

Cheers

Great info you have here, very informative. I didn’t know Kindle Unlimited exist and it’s free to try for 30 days. Does they require you to enter a credit card? I’m currently locked out so would prefer other method just to try this out. Anyway, this is a great info for everyone to know. Thanks for sharing.

    Hi Jaze,

    Glad you found it useful. It is a great trial and definitely worth giving a go. Similar to Amazon’s Audible service they do require a credit card in order to sign up but you can cancel close to when the 30 day trial is up. Hope you manage to get your account unlocked soon!

    Let me know if you have anymore questions

    Cheers

That’s sounds incredible! Especially because I read a lot of books , that’s a great opportunity. I ‘ll definitely try it. Other than that, I do prefer e-books because you can have as many as you want with you. I’m not saying that I don’t like a good paperback, but it’s very tiring to have them while travelling, on the bus etc.
Thanks for this!

Hi James,

very well written summary of Amazon Kindle deals and discounts. What I am usually missing when these deals take place is a good overview and comparison to the regular price. I know that Amazon displays the discount on their websites, but in many cases, these numbers only show how much you save compared to the recommended retail price, but not the book’s normal Amazon price. If you know what I mean 🙂 Do you know a platform or so that can be used to show this kind of historical data? And do you know if there is a way to set up alerts for Kindle deals?

Thanks,
chris

    Hi Chris,

    Thanks for your feedback. Believe it or not but I have had that feedback before in regards to how Amazon structures these prices. Amazon doesn’t provide a historical set of price data I’m afraid, however you can use the internet time machine to go back to the page on a particular day to see what the price was then:

    https://archive.org/web/

    It won’t be 100% as it depends on whether or not the page has been crawled recently and Amazon links can be subject to change but worth giving a shot. Amazon also doesn’t offer alerts either (which come to think of it would be a great idea!) 

    Thanks again for the comment and let me know if you have any further questions.

    Cheers

    James
