If you’re wondering whether your ereader is affected, then here are the Kindle devices that will soon lose this feature…
Kindle (2nd Gen) International, Kindle DX International, Kindle Keyboard, Kindle (4th Gen), and Kindle (5th Gen)
While you won’t be able to purchase Kindle books directly on these devices in a few days time, you’ll still be able to buy books on the Amazon website and send it to your Kindle.
So that is one workaround for this, however some people may prefer the convenience of buying an ebook on their device.
If you fall into that camp you have a few options available to you.
Amazon offers trade in on select Kindle ereaders, and the whole process can easily be done from the comfort of your home.
Simply head to the Amazon Trade-In programme website, answer a few questions about your device and then you’ll get a label you can print to send your old Kindle back to Amazon for free.
Once Amazon receives it and accepts it they’ll send you a gift card as well as a 20 percent discount for a new Kindle.
Amazon accepts trade-in on a number of Kindle models from the 3rd generation ereader through to the 9th gen.
The online retail giant also accepts trade-ins for other devices like smartphones, tablets, game consoles and other Amazon products such as the Fire TV Stick.
