Are you eligible for $50 off a Kindle?

Are you eligible for $50 off a Kindle?

Check this link:

$50 off a Kindle? (at AmazonSmile: benefit a non-profit of your choice by shopping)

I don’t know if this is real, but it appears to be…a special offer for some people for $50 off a Kindle (which would bring the “Mindle” down to $19).

I can’t see it, because I’m not eligible. If I go to the site I linked above, it says, “We’re sorry, you are not eligible for this offer.” That at least shows that there was an offer of some kind.

I first read about it in this

Amazon Kindle forum thread (at AmazonSmile)

I don’t know what would make one person eligible and another person not (there are conflicting stories in the thread), but I’d appreciate hearing about it if you are.

I’m going to get this out now, since the offer (if it exists) could end at any time.

* I am linking to the same thing at the regular Amazon site, and at AmazonSmile. When you shop at AmazonSmile, half a percent of your purchase price on eligible items goes to a non-profit you choose. It will feel just like shopping at Amazon: you’ll be using your same account. The one thing for you that is different is that you pick a non-profit the first time you go (which you can change whenever you want)…and the good feeling you’ll get. :) Shop ’til you help! :)

    I’m not eligible either. Maybe if you have a registered Kindle you aren’t eligible?

      Thanks for writing, Karen!

      Maybe.🙂 Since you asked, I just asked in that forum thread…I don’t know at this point.
