Free 2-day shipping on Kindles extended: order by 12/21 8:00 PM PDT
Amazon is extending free two-day shipping on Kindles to the continental U.S..
If you order it by December 21 (this Wednesday) at 8:00 PM Pacific, they guarantee delivery by Christmas (which is Sunday).
They talk about it in this
Those are the currently available Kindles (but they don’t mention the Kindle DX 9.7 inch…they say the “Kindle family”. Apparently, the Kindle DX has become like Chuck Cunningham on Happy Days…the older brother who was mysteriously never mentioned again after the second season). Those are:
- Kindle The starter: what I call the “Mindle”
- Kindle Touch, Wi-Fi only
- Kindle Touch 3G, Free 3G + Wi-Fi
- Kindle Keyboard, Wi-Fi (formerly the Kindle 3)
- Kindle Keyboard 3G, Free 3G + Wi-Fi (formerly the Kindle 3 3G)
- Kindle DX 9.7 inch
- Kindle Fire Full Color 7″ Multi-touch Display, Wi-Fi
I don’t think it matters if they are Special Offers or not…the Special Offers definitely qualify.
They also mention that the Kindle Fire has been the #1 bestselling item at Amazon for twelve weeks running. That always amazes me…a $199 item sells more units than, say, AA batteries? Of course, there are many brands of AA batteries, but that still seems odd to me.
Also touted: the new ability to choose a delivery date for e-book gifts, which I’ve written about previously.
