Amazon had just given me a $15 credit but when I use the code it includes the $15 credit as part of the 40% off instead of adding the additional discount and shows 2 promotions applied basically taking away my $15 credit. Bummer, with the code, my credit, and my amazon pts. It would be free.

Details make this deal MUCH less appealing. Should amend title.

@gadgetgirl88: dang that sucks. Maybe call up amazon support and see if they can get that fixed for you, because they're usually pretty good about that kind of thing.

This deal gave me a heart attack! I JUST bought the Kindle like 1 week ago. Thankfully, I don't have a Amazon Visa, so I can't use this deal anyway...er is that good or bad?

@xcswmboy: its eh. I bought a refurbished nook simple touch for 80 and the very next day it was 70 so eh.

It seems a bit confusing, but I DID JUST BUY THIS KINDLE for $29.00. Had to apply for their credit card and presumably get approved, but that was quick and easy. So here I am with a $79 Kindle that cost me $29 and had free shipping!!!
Bargain of the month and thank you Great Woots.
All great good fortune for all who pursue the magic discount. Long live the Amazon Wooters!

While I'm not happy that I can't opt-out of the tracking software on this eReader, this is a good deal.

Good deal for those who don't mind the credit issue. Not such a good deal for those of use who don't need another credit card. Or use a Nook. Like me.

Interesting work around though OP, way to stick it to the man! $50 Kindles for everyone!

Let me try this again, because I'm not understanding this commentary. I just purchased a NEW Kindle from Amazon for $29 dollars American. It's the regular guy, and they say with bonuses: Kindle, Wi-Fi, 6" E Ink Display - includes Special Offers & Sponsored Screensavers . Whatever those things might be worth, and I have to suspect not very much. The awesome point here is the Brand New Kindle for under $30 bucks. Granting that the price probably reflects pretty accurately what these little guys are actually worth - it must be said to be an awesome deal. And, this from a guy who is still trying to get my POCKET EDGE to do something more useful than blink at me in two colors (I.E., 6/29/2011: My enTourage Pocket eDGe Order #..237).
I've WOOTED since January of 2005 and have yet to bag a brown sack of happiness, acronym be damned. I have just got to say, This deal beats bags of chicanery like pants on the ground.
Love you all, and may the zen of capitalizmo keep you vibrant and unplussed.

@farley1guy: The "Special Offers & Sponsored Screensavers" is essentially advertising, and your accepting the discounted price is based on accepting the advertising. It's pretty much no problem, though: a small one-liner that shows at the bottom of the screen, and the screen savers are actually little static ads, rather like a billboard. The discount is a good balance.

By the way, eBay has gazillions of sellers offering various covers for the Kindles at much lower prices than Amazon's.

I got one a couple of months ago for $50 using a local-Amazon $20 discount. It's a refurb model, but there's not a mark on it to indicator human hands ever touched it before it arrived.

I bought mostly to see if I'd actually use it, and if I were buying one today I'd spring for the touch model. A little pricier, but the 5-way navigator on the basic model is a tad cumbersome to use. All that said, however, this is a great deal for a handy, highly usable little gadget.

@racingfreak92: I actually tried to reword the title shortly after posting and the option was gone... Sorry for the confusion! I'll see if the mods can change it around :)

To be clear:

With the code KINDLE40 you get 40% off either the Kindle base model with special offers or without special offers. You can also order Kindle accessories (sold by Amazon) for 40% off. HTH

Okay, trying this and it's not happening for me.

Is there a difference between the Amazon store credit card and an Amazon rewards card?

KINDLE40 results in "The promotional code you entered cannot be applied to your purchase."

And I see no way to get it for $29 ???

vote-for-4vote-against

Aren't these things going away as the dinosaur with tablets being so cheap nowadays?

vote-for1vote-against

@thesaj: yes, the store card is different than the visa and will not work for this deal. Some people are signing up for a new card and using the sign up bonus ($30) to get it for cheaper.

vote-for3vote-against

@colbytitus: Not even close. I haven't seen a good tablet for sale (new) for less than $200. This is less than 1/4 of the price, plus it's MUCH better to use for reading.

vote-for3vote-against

@colbytitus: no tablet has the battery life and the Kindle is much easier on the eyes. I have both and would choose my Kindle every time for reading a book.

vote-for1vote-against

Dang, I have the Amazon Rewards card and I would jump all over this one, but I got a Kindle Touch for this past Christmas.

vote-for1vote-against

Don't know how I did it, but I just got this Kindle 'without special offers' for $15.40. Somehow when I logged into Amazon to sign up for the Visa credit card, my offer was a $50 credit. So $109 + 6.98 shipping - 40% - $6.98 super saver discount = $65.40 - $50 credit = $15.40!! That is a GREAT DEAL! And with my husband's birthday right around the corner, I am doing the happy dance for sure! Thank you, thank you!

vote-for1vote-against

Anyone have a link to the Amazon Visa...I think I signed up for the wrong thing...

:-/

vote-for1vote-against

@thesaj: Crap...now it says I have to wait 30 days to be approved. Probably cause I just signed up for the wrong one. Annoying.

vote-for3vote-against

While I know some might not be fans of getting another credit card, I will say that this one is actually pretty nice. Automatic 3% cash back on all Amazon purchases, and you can use those points as credit on your next purchase, no matter how small the number (the lowest I've done so far is $0.30). You're also eligible for deals like this every once in a while.

I've had my Kindle Touch for about ten months, and I love it. Tempted to jump on this for my wife, but she might rather have a Fire or other tablet so she could play games.

vote-for2vote-against

In for one, thanks for the post! Been talking about getting a second Kindle for a while, just not worth $100 since I have a iPad. But, I can justify $47!

We already have an amazon card, so no concern for us.

vote-for1vote-against

this deal is crazy! you have to apply for the Amazon rewards credit card and get approved but it seems worth it. I got the $109 kindle marked down to 59.99, then applied the code and marked it down to $15.40?? and then got to use whats left of my 30 day prime trial for 2 day shipping ; )

Just make sure you apply for the amazon card with rewards from CHASE! i applied for the other one and got approved but it did not mark down the price at all nor allow me to apply the coupon }: (
this is the one you want with the coupon "kindle40"

@farley1guy: How did you get it for $29? If I put the cheapest Kindle in my cart, select my brand spanking new Amazon VISA, enter the promo code, and select free shipping, It's still $47.50 ($79-40%=$47.50). Are you including the $50 promo you get for signing up for the VISA? Because, if so, the Kindle actually "costs" -$2.50. If not, it looks like either you didn't enter the promo code or it didn't work for you.

vote-for4vote-against

@katjim00 - can you tell me how you found out about this deal? i have an amazon rewards visa card and am wondering if i need to set something within my account, etc. to get deal notifications.

vote-for4vote-against

@katjim00: Yes, I'd like to know how you found out about this deal, too! I pictured all of us who've acquired shiny new Amazon VISA cards receiving a flood of great offers, but if @annwat isn't getting them, then I too would like to know how to set my account so I can see deals like this.

vote-for1vote-against

@leronis: I have had my Amazon Visa for years and never got any info on deals like this, actually on any deals at all just for having it. So I too would like to know. I saw it on another deal site before I saw it here, but still don't know how anyone got the info.

vote-for2vote-against

just a reminder for those of you who have points in your amazon rewards bank - you can apply them to this deal, further reducing the cost. i had enough points to get the base kindle w/special offers for free after the 40% discount.

vote-for1vote-against

@annwat @leronis: A friend sent me the deal yesterday. He always seems to know about these monthly offers and I never do :( I have had the Amazon Chase card for a few years myself and have never received an email of monthly offers. Maybe it is worth contacting them over?

vote-for2vote-against

@katjim00: Worth a shot. Don't you hate that feeling that everyone else is in the know and you're not??? ;-)

vote-for1vote-against

@leronis: Sorry to be so long responding. The short version: I don't really know what I did.
I did not think to enter the "deal code" because they automatically took off $50 when I followed their instructions. Apparently, from reading what others have said, I got hoodwinked into opening an unnecessary Visa card. But I use Amazon more frequently than any other retailer so I don't really mind. As to the hoodwinking - I'm apparently the kind of guy who gets a lot of that. Can't really decide if that means I'm one of the fading, good guys; or, I'm just a dope who better get used to post-modern capitalism. Suggestion: sign up for the card AND insert the code. Maybe they'll send you a check.

vote-for1vote-against

@farley1guy: No hoodwinking involved - you did have to get the VISA card to get the $50 off, and you did have to use the Amazon VISA to get the 40% off, so the Amazon VISA was necessary all the way around. Sadly, it looks like you got the $50 "signing bonus" for getting the card, but forgot to use the 40% off promo code. But any way you look at it, $29 for a Kindle is still an awesome deal!

vote-for1vote-against

Well, that deal was totally worth it. I have a friend who has wanted a kindle forever and just didn't have the money, so I signed up for the Amazon Rewards Visa, was given the $30 signing bonus (no idea why I didn't qualify for the $50 bonus) and then got the Kindle40 deal on the purchase. Nice Kindle for my friend and only cost me $17.40. Now I have another Visa, but I purchase from Amazon all the time, I'll cut up the card when it gets to me (use it only on Amazon anyway most likely) and just use it online for Amazon.

I'd like to know how you find out the good deals like this too.... This was great. I know it was really great because of the signing bonus, but still a brand new Kindle (not refurb) for under $50 is a good deal.

vote-for1vote-against

I was able to use this deal to get the Kindle and a Kindle sleeve (another $20 value) for a combined $29. now that is a huge deal!!!!!

vote-for1vote-against

i just got an email from chase with the offer under discussion so it does look like i officially get the offers, just not as early as @katjim00's friend. w/in the email, there is a link to amazon.com/augustoffer - i tried that url and it takes me to the 40% off page w/details, etc. so, in the future, if it's near the beginning of the month and you want to check for the next month's offers under your amazon rewards cards, you might try amazon.com/monthoffer (ie. amazon.com/septemberoffer)

vote-for1vote-against

My wife got me it....signed up for the card, got the $50.

$79-$50 = $29 - 40% brings it to $18.

;-)

vote-for1vote-against

@thesaj: Did they give you the code (KINDLE40) bonus off as well? I went back, canceled my first order, submitted a second order while entering the Kindle code (KINDLE40) and got told and was told they don't work together = stay with a Kindle for $29 or shut up and go home. I took the $29 Kindle, then went home. That price made my day, but I'm just curious if anyone else got the combo taken off their Kindle price.

vote-for1vote-against

Just got in under the wire. Nice deal, thanks!
