Kindle Now Sells for $114 for Those Who Don’t Mind ‘Special Offers’

By posted at 8:49 pm on April 11, 2011 2

Amazon has just dropped the price on the Kindle yet again, but it comes with a big caveat. The Kindle can now be had for $114 if you select a version of the device that peppers you with special offers (Examples: $10 for $20 Amazon.com Gift Card; $6 for 6 Audible Books; etc). Before the purists out there go too crazy, it may be some consolation that these offers appear only on the home screen and screensaver; they don’t interrupt reading.

    If Amazon could offer an ad-supported Kindle for an extremely low price, say $30, it would be fascinating to see how the sales would divide up. I just can’t believe that very many people able to spend over $100 for the device will opt to save a mere $25 in exchange for ads. But I suppose if there are a lot of people in that camp, that will be an interesting result as well.
