Deal of the Day: $149 Amazon KindleBy Chris Weiss
E-reader prices have recently been going down faster than Paris Hilton after a couple of adult beverages, and for a limited time, you can enjoy the biggest price break yet. Woot has the Amazon Kindle for a bargain-basement price of $150. If you’ll recall, Amazon recently dropped the official price of the Kindle down to $189, so without trying too hard you’ll save about 40 bucks. $35 once you get past Woot’s standard $5 shipping costs.
Woot’s price puts the Kindle at the same price as Barnes & Noble’s cheap, Wi-Fi-only model. In other words, you’ll get the Kindle’s 3G coverage for the same price.
I don’t reckon this one will last long, so jump on over to Woot now and get your order in.
If you’re wondering how Woot was able to skirt around Amazon’s set-in-stone Kindle pricing, it has a little to do with the fact that Amazon purchased Woot yesterday. What a way to kick things off.
