The Amazon Kindle is one of the most popular e-readers on the market — claiming over half the spots on our list of the best models for 2023. And it’s come a long way since the first model hit shelves all the way back in 2007. The latest and greatest entry — the Kindle Scribe — has been upgraded to a full-on E Ink tablet that allows you to write, draw and take notes by hand right on the display. And right now you can snag one at an all-time low price. Amazon is currently offering up to 22% off all configurations, which saves you $75 on the basic model, dropping the price down to $265. Plus, all configurations come with three free months of Kindle Unlimited, which saves you another $36. There’s no set expiration for this deal, so we’d recommend getting your order in sooner rather than later if you don’t want to miss out on these savings.
Kindle Scribe has a 300 ppi, front-lit, 10.2-inch high-resolution touchscreen E ink display with adjustable warm light and can provide weeks of battery life on a single charge. It’s the largest Kindle ever, but still weighs in at just under a pound. While that certainly makes it portable, you will probably want to invest in a cover that can double as a stand — which you’ll have to purchase separately.
Depending on the model you buy, your Scribe will come with either a standard stylus or a premium pen. Each will adhere magnetically to the side of your Scribe and require neither power nor Bluetooth connectivity, so you’ll never have to charge it. The premium pen is even designed with an eraser that essentially works like a regular pencil and has a programmable button. You can use the stylus to mark up PDFs, and sending those documents to the device itself is easy. Note, however, that you cannot mark up Kindle ebooks or DRM-free ePub ebooks. Essentially you will write on “sticky notes” on anything other than a PDF.
If you want the lowest price on this device, you’ll want to go for the Basic Pen, which is available for $265 (save $75) and comes with 16GB of storage. The Premium Pen option is available in 16GB, 32GB and 64GB configurations, with prices starting at $290 (save $80).
