Amazon is the only seller of Kindles and can’t be beaten on price!
Because the Kindle is an official Amazon product and only directly sold via Amazon, grey-importers have to charge a premium in order to make a profit. So unless you simply can’t wait 8-12 days for your Kindle, you should never buy from anyone else except Amazon.
What about delivery?
A while back there was some media attention regarding Amazon’s decision to no longer ship to South Africa. This is not the case and the misunderstanding was mainly due to bad reporting in the media. So Amazon does ship to South Africa and it usually takes between 8-12 days for your brand-new Kindle to arrive at your doorstep!
