Amazon Kindle Oasis Black Friday deal: Save £60 in the retailer’s early sale

The biggest sale of the year is nearly here, with just days to go until Black Friday 2020.

With big savings to be had across tech, home appliances, fashion, TVs and more, it’s the perfect time to get some of your Christmas shopping done from the comfort of your own sofa.

While the day itself falls on 27 November, the main sale runs throughout the weekend until Cyber Monday, but brands and retailers tend to begin their pre-Black Friday deals a couple of weeks ahead of the big day.

The Independent’s technology critic, David Phelan, awarded the Kindle Oasis the best buy in our review of the best eReaders for its sheer quality and clever features.

He said: “This premium ebook reader is spectacular. The build quality is immaculate, with an aluminium casing that’s waterproof, so you can read in the bath or poolside. Note, though, that it does mean this Kindle warms up in the sunshine so it can overheat in hot weather.

“Unlike the other Kindle readers, this one has physical page turn buttons to go forward or back a page. Cleverly, these buttons work whichever way up you hold the Kindle, which reverses what’s onscreen as you turn the device upside down.”

“The brightness adjusts automatically according to the ambient light in the room. Amazon’s interface is very good, letting you navigate pages without losing your place, with advanced search features and overview elements. You can listen to Audible audiobooks (Audible is owned by Amazon) via Bluetooth headphones – there’s no regular headphone socket on any Kindle.”
