As the month of February comes to an end, most eBook reader and tablet companies have decided to slash prices and create contests, so that their faithful users may benefit of some discounted, but still great devices.
Kobohas organized a contest, ongoing until February 29th, with many prizes and opportunities. Their official website provides numerous coupon codes for those who enter their daily trivia contest. The lucky winners will get 10%-35% off ebook coupons, $25 cinema vouchers and for the grand prize, three Kobo Touch eReaders + Bose SoundDock Portable Digital Music System. Not too shabby.
eBooks.com offers several deals as well, not as many as Kobo, but still. They feature a Winter Promotion, with $10 discount on $80 or more purchase. The promotion is valid through March 22, 2012, through the discount code: winterebookscp. The Library Month Promotion will get 10% off with LibraryLovercp code and is valid until February 29th, 2012.
For 20% off Archaeology, Art, Computers, Food & Wine and Religion books, those interested may use the categorysalecp, in February.
Discounts on eReaders and Tablets
Skytex Alpha 2 – $99 – a cheap tablet on eBay, runs Android 2.3 Gingerbread and is expected to get a firmware update to 4.0 at the end of February. A half decent 7” tablet, for a convenient price.
Ainol Novo7 Paladin – $129 – the tab can be found on Chinese wholesale websites for $99. It is a budget tablet, but runs the newest version of Android and has cool specs for a $99 7incher.
Nook Tablet (8GB) – $199 – this version of Nook has been introduced recently by Barnes & Noble, to compete head-to-head with the Kindle Fire. It’s the same Nook device, only cheaper.
Samsung Galaxy Tab – $219 – the refurbish of the cool 7” device, with 3G, is on sale at buy.com.
Nook Touch – $79 – a new Nook can be purchased from quill.com, for this price. But if the offer expires, a refurbished model is available at the same price of $79 through Barnes & Noble’s eBay store.
Kindle DX – $244 – this ereader has entered the market with a price of $379 and has soon been forgotten, as it is grossly overpriced. Refurbished Kindles DX can be purchased for $135 off, but the PocketBook 902 ($285) would be a smarter choice any day.
Sony PRS –T1 – $115 – this is a good ereader, and will soon be sold for $99.
Kobo Wi-Fi – $49 – this is a cheap refurbish than can be purchased from Best Buy.
Augen The Book – $29 – the device itself is not amazing, but $29 for a color ereader is at cheap as it gets.
