This is my first deal posting, so please go easy one me Smilie
This is a similar deal from a last week but now has the lowest price ever for the Paperwhite version of the Kindle (according to Triple Camels at least...)

Coupled with using a single AMEX rewards point brings the price down to $49.99.
This may only be for specific cardholders, but at the moment, it looks like it works for all cardholders that can link their rewards accounts with their Amazon account.

Do the following:

Link your AMEX account first:
Then activate the deal through Amazon -- Ensure you activate the second offer for the Kindle Paperwhite version:
And finally...:
  • Choose an AMEX card as your payment method
  • Use at least 1 point to get the $40 discount. Note: If you're forced to use a "dollar amount" of points instead of actually applying the number points you want to spend, use $.01 to only use a single rewards point.

Well crap -- looks like Amazon already increased the price. Might be worth checking back to see if it goes back down to $89 before applying the rewards points

Been tempted to pull the trigger on a Paperwhite for $50 the last several days until I realize there is no way for you to listen to audiobooks with paperwhite: no speakers, no headphone jack, not even a bluetooth.

That's the same price? $89 pre-deal minus $40 from AMEX.

I just replicated and ordered. Ty sir.

If anyone has trouble getting that $89 price, make sure to use the New (1) from $89.99 link on the product page, not the Customize & Add to Cart purchase button.

$119 for me - Keepa shows big price swings recently. Will check tomorrow - fantastic deal if this gets down to $50!

If you're monitoring this thread, I just checked right now and it's back to $89. Get it while you can!

OP - thrilled you posted this, but note what you did not do as far as I can tell is post the LINK to the correct Paperwhite itself. That would help. Alley
