With only a few days to go before Father's Day, Amazon has all its Kindle e-readers on sale. The deal on the new Kindle Paperwhite, released last November, isn't quite as good as it was last month when it was on sale for $90, or $40 off its list price of $130. But it is down to $100, or $30 off its list price.
Meanwhile, the top-of-line Kindle Oasis, which has a larger 7-inch screen and is discounted less frequently, is on sale for $200, or $50 off its list price. The step-up Oasis with more memory (32GB vs. 8GB), is $230. It is worth noting that the current Oasis has been around for a while and could get an upgrade as early as this year.
Lastly, the new entry-level Kindle, which features an integrated light, is also being discounted: it's $70 ($20 off). That's also a good deal -- and the lowest price we've seen -- but the Paperwhite is probably worth the extra $30.
