During the Mega Giveaway week, I gave away quite a few of these Kindles. They are the latest base model with a touchscreen. Some of the prize recipients have remarked how much they liked the model. Well, now they are available for cheaper than ever!
Thanks to a discount and promo at Staples, you can get it for the sale price of $59 plus get a $30 Visa gift card as well. The $30 Visa card is basically like cash and can be used anywhere you would use Visa.
To make the deal even sweeter, you can go through a shopping portal (like Ultimate Rewards that pays 2 extra UR points per dollar) and a Chase Ink Plus or Chase Ink Bold to get 5x Ultimate Reward points (because it is from Staples, an office supply store). With the value of Ultimate Reward points, it is like getting another $7 or so in redemption value. With the value of the points and the gift card, it ends up like you are paying around $22 for a brand new Kindle! That is a fantastic deal! If you were looking for a last-minute Christmas present, this is a great way to go!
Once you purchase it, go to this link to fill out the form for the Easy Rebate for the Visa gift card. Staples fulfills these offers pretty quick so just fill it out and go!
