The advertising supported Kindle 3G is available now, saving $25.
Amazon released the Kindle Wi-Fi with special offers last month. As reported, the $114 Kindle is already the best-selling Kindle eReader. Now Amazon also offers the 3G Kindle with Special offers. Instead of $189 you only pay $164 for the Kindle 3G with Special Offers.
"Kindle is the bestselling e-reader in the world. It's been just six weeks since we introduced the new $114 Kindle with Special Offers, and already customers have made it the bestselling member of the Kindle family," said Jay Marine, Director, Amazon Kindle. "In response to customer requests, we're now making these money-saving special offers available for Kindle 3G. You will get all the features readers love about Kindle 3G - free 3G wireless, global wireless access, Pearl electronic ink display that's easy to read even in bright sunlight, access to over 950,000 'Buy Once, Read Everywhere' Kindle books - all for just $164 - the lowest price for any 3G e-reader."
Amazon really hit a nerve with the Special Offers program. It is clear that consumers want to pay as little as posible for an eReader hardware. Barnes&Noble is right with innovating on the low-end and releasing a new touchscreen Nook for $139 next month.
Special offers that will be available in the coming weeks include:
- $10 for a $20 Amazon.com Gift Card - customers loved this offer, so we're making it available again in time for Father's Day
- Save up to $500 off Amazon's already low prices on HDTVs with a unique 20% discount on 200 HDTVs from brands including Sony, Panasonic, LG, and VIZIO
- $1 for a Kindle book, choose from thousands of books including Water for Elephants and the Hunger Games trilogy
- Spend $10 on Kindle books and get a free $10 Amazon.com Gift Card
