As Prime Day is an Amazon-run event, Amazon’s line of products had the biggest discounts over the 48 hour sale.

What to expect from Prime Day Kindle deals 2022
Based on last year’s Prime Day sale, we expected to see deals on all generations of the Kindle, from the popular Paperwhite to the kids-friendly Kids Edition. On 11th July 2022, multiple versions of the Kindle went on sale for up to half price! If you’re unsure what Kindle is right for you, check out our guide to the best Kindle (opens in new tab).
The Kindle Paperwhite is one of the most popular Kindles you can find and has tons of innovative features including anti-glare, waterproofing and tons of storage. In our opinion, the Kindle Paperwhite is the best e-reader on the market and it's dropped from its original price of £139.99 to £99.99.
While the standard Kindle is the most basic option you can find, it does exactly what you need it to and doesn’t distract you with too many features. It’s the best budget e-reader you can find at just £79.99 but now, it's fallen to £44.99.
One of the best early Prime Day deals from this year has been on Kindle Unlimited (opens in new tab). Kindle Unlimited is a book subscription service that gives users access to millions of books, magazine subscriptions and audiobooks. While Prime Reading comes with your Prime membership, Kindle Unlimited is an additional service that you’ll have to sign up to separately to give you more access to more books. Until the 13th July, Prime members can get 3 months of Kindle Unlimited for free. Prime members can also get 3 months of Audible for free and 4 months of Amazon Music Unlimited for free. See Kindle Unlimited, Audible and Amazon Music Unlimited Prime Day deals (opens in new tab) for all the details.
Of course, you won’t get much use out of a Kindle without any books on it! The Kindle Store (which is accessible via the Kindle app or your Kindle device) lets you buy and keep thousands of books, audiobooks and magazines. The Kindle Store runs Daily Deals (opens in new tab) so you can find cheap prices on new books every day. Select titles go for as low as 99p so we recommend you treat yourself to some of these when you buy a new Kindle. It’s also worth looking to see if there are any deals on book series. On Black Friday, many book stores (including Amazon) were selling book collections for cheap prices so keep an eye out for that this Prime Day.
