Big Best Buy sale: buy a Fire, get a Mindle for $39.99
I’m writing this on my Kindle Fire at Starbucks, so I’ll polish it a bit later.
In today’s Best Buy ad, they have what is very close to a “buy a Fire, get a Mindle half off sale “.
This deal is good through May 5th.
Update; Okay, I’m on a netbook extending and polishing this.
Here’s a link to the ad:
They also have a Kindle Touch 3G (not just wi-fi) for $149.95…and then they give you a $40 gift card.
3G is nice to have: it means you can connect in a lot more places, not just places with a wi-fi network.
It also looks like these are good online…and they have free shipping on everything at BestBuy.com (with a couple of small disclaimers) through May 7th.
Oh, and I confirm something I wrote about previously: Walmart is giving a $30 gift card with the purchase of a Mindle:
This is valid today, Sunday May 29, through May 5th.
If you buy a Fire also, the Best Buy deal is about $10 better. If you don’t, obviously, the Walmart ad is better on the Mindle. Best Buy has a good deal on the 3G Touch, though.
Do these two deals suggest something is coming soon from Amazon in terms of new hardware? Maybe, but Mothers’ Day is traditionally a big sales period for books, and that likely means EBRs (E-Book Readers) as well.
