There are a ton of Amazon hardware devices on sale today. However, Kindle deals are a little harder to come by. That said, if you're looking for a Kindle reader, I've found the best deal available right now. 

For a limited time, you can get the Kindle Paperwhite Signature Edition for just $159 at Amazon. It also includes 3 free months of Kindle Unlimited ($35 value). Two quick caveats. You must be a Prime member to get this deal. Additionally, it's been $20 cheaper in the past. That doesn't make this a horrible deal, but it's not quite the lowest price. That said, it's still the best Kindle deal you'll find in the Amazon Big Spring Sale

The Kindle Paperwhite Signature Edition sits between the Kindle Paperwhite and the Kindle Oasis in price. If you want a little more than the regular Paperwhite offers, but don’t want to shell out $249 for the Oasis, this is the option for you.

Traditionally, you'd have to pay extra for an ad-free Kindle and extra storage, but the Signature Edition comes with these features as standard. You also get Qi wireless charging features and a screen that automatically adjusts between 21 levels of brightness.

With your purchase, you'll get three months of Kindle Unlimited for free. This gets you access to over 2 million books, audiobooks, and magazines. Once your free trial is up, the service costs $11.99/month — but if you don't want to use it anymore, remember you can borrow free eBooks from your local library and read them straight from your Kindle using OverDrive.
