Kindles for everyone!

Granted, I hear the Kindle Fire is pretty sweet, but if you don’t mind going a little bit old-school with your e-reader, I love how the prices on Kindles just seem to keep dropping and dropping.

If you’re finally ready to take the plunge, but want to do it as cheaply as possible, today’s probably the day—you can hop on over to Amazon Local to snag a voucher for $20 off a certified refurbished 6″ Kindle with Special Offers, making it just $49 shipped.

This is the model Kindle I have, and I love it. I just carry it around in my purse and I always have a book or twelve on hand, plus the Special Offers sometimes alert me to coupons and deals I wouldn’t otherwise know about. Twofer!


  1. Woohoo, finally took the plunge 🙂 Thanks!!

  2. Mir,

    How do I get the coupon? Clicked on your link, registered – no coupon! Help pls, would love to use this awesome deal.

  3. Isabel, I’m already registered so I don’t know quite what happened for you, but it’s possible it had you sign in and now you need to go back and click on “Get Voucher” to get it. Once you complete your “purchase” (it’s free), it will show up in your “Your Vouchers” section on Amazon Local.

  4. It’s only available for Atlanta, and I was already registered for Ohio. I did however manage to snag it so my husband will have his very own Kindle in 2 days! Once again THANK YOU for all your hard work here!

  5. Ah, glad you figured it out! I randomly checked a bunch of cities and thought it was available everywhere. Apparently there’s no love for Ohio. 😉

  6. Aw crap! I’m in. There goes $50. Ha!

  7. I got it the deal via Boston Amazon local.
    i’m going to bite the bullet (even though it’ll take another $10 for an A/C adapter too). I’m a sucker for gadgets and I’ve been thinking about a Kindle for awhile. For $59 total I can justify trying it out. I can give it to my daughters in a year or so if I get tired of it!

  8. Do you know how long I’ve been resisting the siren call of an e-reader. I AM A LIBRARIAN, WOMAN.


  9. I’m in Ohio (Cincinnati) and it worked for me. I already have a second generation kindle. These new ones are so sleek, I have to decide which one to give to my mom. The bigger, older one I love that has 3G, or the new, smaller, cooler one with only wi-fi (but coupons! er…”ads”).

  10. Nancy, if you have any type of charger where the USB cord can be removed from the A/C “block” (i.e. an iPod/iPhone charger) then that should work to charge the Kindle too.

    At least that’s what I’m hoping, since I didn’t get the A/C adapter.

  11. This site is costing me a FORTUNE … and I’m rather enjoying it!!!
