Amazon’s last-gen Kindle Oasis e-reader is $170 at Woot

The Verge - Mon Apr 12 13:47

If you missed out on Woot’s deal a few weeks ago that offered refurbished Kindle Oasis e-readers for $100, there’s another good deal happening today. The last-gen version of the Oasis is once again available, but it’s new with special offers (Amazon’s lock screen ads) and costs $170. For context, a new Oasis costs $250. As for what’s different between the current model and this one, you’ll miss out on a screen that can adapt its color temperature to your environment. But you’ll still get a waterproof e-reader that feels more like a book to use than other models, says my colleague Chaim Gartenberg.

This deal loops in the 32GB model in gold. The sale will end later today, if it doesn’t sell out first.

The Oasis was Amazon’s first waterproof Kindle e-reader. While the latest version costs $250 new, you can save a lot of money (without giving up much in the way of specs) on the previous generation.

Several retailers have lowered the price of the new Echo Show 10 smart display to $200 (from $250), which is the best price yet. But only at Amazon can you check out with a free Ring smart bulb added to the order for no extra charge. There have been a few models of the Echo Show 10, but this one has a motorized base that lets the screen swivel around to remain visible as you move around the room. My colleague Dan Seifert recently posted a review about it, so check it out if you’re curious to learn more.

A reputable seller on eBay is selling “not pink” Google Pixel 3s with 64GB of storage for just $170. Each phone is carrier unlocked and comes sealed in its original packaging. As a Pixel 3 owner, this price seems good to me for a new model. This phone’s battery life isn’t great, but its stock Android software, camera performance, and display quality are still fantastic a few years on. If you’re capped at $200 for a new phone that you can use on any carrier, it’s tough to beat this value. Though, you should know that Android 12 may be the last major software update that’s set to come to this model.

Google sells this model refurbished for $250 at its online store, just to illustrate how good this deal for a new phone is.
