Amazon sells cheaper Kindle with advertisements

Kindlespecial_car Want to save $25 on a Kindle? Now you can -- if you don't mind sponsored screensavers.

Amazon introduced a new Kindle, called Kindle with Special Offers. For $114, it comes loaded with a menu for Amazon special deals and print ads for screensavers. Users are presented with the chance to buy discounted Amazon products, such as:

  • $10 for $20 Amazon.com Gift Card
  • $6 for 6 Audible Books (normally $68)
  • $1 for an album in the Amazon MP3 Store (choose from over 1 million albums)
  • $10 for $30 of products in the Amazon Denim Shop or Amazon Swim Shop
  • Free $100 Amazon.com Gift Card when you get an Amazon Rewards Visa Card (normally $30)
  • Buy one of 30 Kindle bestsellers with your Visa card and get $10 Amazon.com credit
  • 50% off Roku Streaming Player (normally $99)

It's certainly a luring feature for deal hunters and frequent Amazon media shoppers who don't mind advertisements. Would you rather save $25 (normally $139) to get this model?

Not only would I not be willing to save $25 but I think Amazon should actually give the Kindle away for free in order to "push" their and others' products and services.
