Black Friday special: NOOK Simple Touch for $79

Black Friday special: NOOK Simple Touch for $79

Amazon undercut Barnes & Nobles’ NOOK Simple Touch when it introduced what I call the Mindle. Instead of $99, the ad-supported version was just $79.

Now, as a

Black Friday special

you can get the NOOK Simple Touch for $79 as well. That’s only in stores, only on Friday, and your Barnes & Noble membership discount won’t apply.

I’d recommend the Mindle over the NOOK Simple Touch, partially due to the superior customer service policies at Amazon, but I thought I’d let people know. NOOK users are welcome here…and some people use both brands. 🙂

    So I went to my local Target at 12:30am (I had stopped by at 11:30pm and there were a couple of thousand in line outside). Even at 12:30am (when I returned), there were still about 200 on line waiting to get into the store. My local store is the district management site where I have helped them with several IT issues. I spent about an hour in electronics watching kindle sales, and then I got with the electronics team leader (a friend) to discuss kindle sales.

    They had plenty of KF’s and were selling well — they couldn’t keep the cabinet stocked with them in that first hour — they were continually bringing them out from the stockroom in batches of 20-30 and they were selling, but they were not sold out. By 1:30 am they were completely sold out of KT’s and “mindles”.

    An important deal note: Target is selling kindle keyboards 3G with SO (regularly $139) for $85 Friday and Saturday only. So that might be a better choice than the Nook simple touch deal that BN is doing.
