This a good deal on a great e-reader!

Already have a Kindle Touch, otherwise I'd pick one up. Even as a refurb, the Touch has been going strong for more than 18 months.

I'm not sure if I should jump for this. It's always nice to have a lighter Kindle, but my venerable Kindle 2 has been going strong for... oh god, how many years has it been since it came out?

@namorama: Same here. I've put it together with tape after I dropped it and, still, it keeps going. Only problem with the new ones is the advertisements. And also the lack of a keyboard. I think I'll stick with the two...

Bought this thing yesterday for my mom - went on sale today. I called Amazon and they instantly refunded me the extra $20. Thanks Amazon!

@comp5569: we bought 2 last week when they were on sale for $55.20, Amazon also refunded me the difference

Sweet deal.

I almost got one... but my Kindle 2 has been going strong since May 2009. I also prefer the physical keyboard, but wish it was a little faster/smoother.

Just got it myself. Never had one before and I didn't want to pull the trigger on one if I wasn't sure how much I was going to use it. Amazon also let me use the cash back from Discover to pay for it which was pretty sweet.

I have this after the original Kindle and the Kindle 2. The lack of a keyboard is very seldom an issue in reading. The thing I love most about this is the small size, enabled by eliminating the keyboard. It fits in larger shirt pockets or pants front pocket. Makes it much easier to take everywhere.

@comp5569 and @natedogg828: Good to know! I got in on the $55.20 deal last week, so I think I'll be giving CS a call as well. Thanks for the heads up!

@pitamuffin: hurry up, they can only refund up to 7 days from delivery date so it is getting very close to the end of the time (depending on when it actually delivered)

@pitamuffin: how did you make out with Amazon CS?

@natedogg828: They gave me the refund, no problem. Their customer service is usually top notch.
