We’re always on the lookout for great deals on the Amazon Kindle, truly one of the coolest gadgets out there for people who like to read. You’ve probably read our previous post on how to save an additional $30 on your Kindle (or other items at Amazon). Recently, we’ve been learning more about the Kindle With Special Offers, and it looks like a winner.
Available for the Wi-Fi Kindle and now the 3G as well, it brings the price down a full $25 from the regular versions.
So, what is the “Kindle With Special Offers?” Essentially, it’s the same Kindle you’d buy at the regular price, all the same features and quality. The only difference is that special offers and sponsored screensavers are displayed. In case you’re worried that you’ll be seeing advertisements while reading your Kindle eBooks, don’t be. The offers and ads only display at the bottom of the home screen, and via the screensaver. Also, you can actually let Amazon know what types and styles of messages you would most like to view. According to Amazon, their goal is “to display sponsored screensavers that you want to see.”
Here are the prices of the two models and their Special Offer counterparts.
The bottom line is that if you follow our “Kindle Coupon” strategy and take advantage of the special offers version, you can score a Kindle Wi-Fi for only $84, and get free shipping too. That, my friends, is an incredible bargain on an amazing device.
