Push to Kindle e-mail service

Our Push to Kindle e-mail service is intended for users of devices for which we have no dedicated app. For example: iPads and iPhones.

Get started

  1. On your device, load an article you'd like to send to your Kindle
  2. Choose share page
  3. In the list of options presented, select Mail
  4. Enter your Kindle email address but instead of @kindle.com, enter @pushtokindle.com*
  5. Send!

Changing the ending to @pushtokindle.com in step 4 ensures our service processes the article first and then sends it to your Kindle account.

The first time you do this, you'll receive an email from us asking you to confirm the address you're sending from. After confirming, you'll have the opportunity to save your Push to Kindle email address in your contacts list to make future sending faster. (Simply typing 'kin' in to the To: field should show your Push to Kindle address as an option.)

If you own a 3G Kindle device and you want to make sure you won't be charged by Amazon, please send to @free.pushtokindle.com.

* So if your Kindle email address is example@kindle.com, you can send web articles via our service by sending to example@pushtokindle.com.


Pricing

It's free to get started!

The first 25 articles processed by our e-mail service are free, after that you'll have two options:

  1. Become a FiveFilters.org sustainer for unlimited sending
  2. Use the service on a pay as you go basis by purchasing credits (currently unavailable)

You'll be presented with both options once you start using the service.


Compared to @kindle.com

Amazon's Send-to-Kindle email service currently works by accepting documents as attachments to an email message.

Web articles you read online are usually not in a format that can be sent to your Kindle account directly. They need to be cleaned up and converted to a suitable format first.

That's what our service does. We take care of extracting the content and converting the article to a suitable ebook format for your Kindle. We then send the result as an attachment to your Kindle account.
