Deal Details

Since the exclusive deals will be served up regularly, I thought it would be good to have a single source to post the deals. Deals are limited to current Kindle with Special Offers owners only.

If you see a deal, post it in the Wiki below (on top of the other deals) and on the last page.

Trading is not permitted in this thread. If you have a Kindle code to trade, use this one.

I probably will be hated for this but I hope amazon cracks down on all this code selling and such. I am afraid some of these people trying to use 5 and 6 codes are going to ruin future deals for the rest of us.
Code trading I don't mind, code selling isn't too bad but people who are buying Kindles en masse from Target, Best Buy and Staples with the sole purpose of getting the codes and returning the Kindles bothers me a lot. If for that reason alone, I hope they start tying codes to accounts. Greedy assholes ruin it for the rest of us.

I was referring to a few posts I saw in another thread where ppl had bought via ebay 5-6 laptop codes and are now pissed that they can't exploit amazon and get high end macbooks and sell for profit. Your line about the crap with laptops triggered me Smilie

To answer the order question of which gets used first, I have a gift card/certificate balance from the Amazon Kindle Book offer, "Buy $10 of Kindle books and get a $10 gift card". I also bought one from the Visa promotion being discussed which gave the $10 promotional offer in electronic media (Kindle books, software, MP3's, etc.). When I found that I had the $10 promotional offer from Visa, I bought a Kindle book I had wanted for $9.99. My Amazon $10 gift card/certificate balance was unchanged and the Visa promotional balance dropped to $0.01.

So, if you purchase something in the media categories listed, it will use your promotional balance first. If you purchase something that is not media, say a clothing item, it will use the gift card/certificate first.
It doesn't matter what you purchase media or not, the promotional credit gets used first before gift card balances, I was buying a toy and the promo got used first. I love love love amazon but this is one issue I wish they would fix.

So what comes tonight? Text book and MP3?
It won't come tonight. The expiration date for the last offer is 8/12 so we won't get a new offer until 8/13.

I thought they were running every 4 days on putting out a new one?

nope i didnt take it personally, I kinda wish that they would make the offers at least need a registered kindle on the account to use... I think because of the stink with the laptops, the reps have been told to honor the codes but still arent checking the account to see if their is a kindle in there. I guess i shouldnt complain because i did get some benifit from it with my camera, but i really think it was because i didnt berate the people i had to talk to, to get a new power cord. The fact that they brought up the code being in there makes me think they were a bit appreciative that i wasnt calling about the laptopSmilie. I do think amazon needs a bit more structure in CS since i had to go thru 4 people to get someone who could "authorize" a new power cord being shipped to replace one that was doa.

yes but they release them at midnight pst or 3am est, so I count that as tonight, but technically it is tomorrow. Either way, my cousin is waiting for the textbook one and schools are starting soon, so I am pretty sure that is one of them

I don't mind the coupon selling, but the associated returns of the Kindles is just unfair to Amazon and all the vendors. You just have to have the decency to keep the KSO and not burden everyone else (in the form of increased prices) for your own personal gain. Otherwise, Amazon will probably link the coupons to accounts (which ruins it for everyone) or just start providing less enticing coupons (which would be bad).

The thing that pisses me off is that all the people who jumped on them to get the laptop code are pissed off that the terms changed, even though Amazon is within their right to do so. The whole "customer is always right" bull shit is actually the "customer who bitches the most, chatting with 8 different representatives is getting what he wants." It's frustrating to me that people are taking advantage of this. Someone in the thread said they were able to get 6 codes applied today.

I honestly wouldn't be surprised at this point if we see codes that pertain to the Kindle (covers, lights, books, etc.) and coupons like $15 off a $30 purchase, etc., while the codes that are sought after become few and far between. It angers me that people take advantage of Amazon like this and then even turn around and call them Scamazon. The farking nerve of people.

They are. The current ones arrived Tuesday morning. The next ones should be Saturday.

Of course I've seen some disappear after three days and "The Help" was added on a fourth day. The ads could stay as long as whoever is paying for them wants them to. But typically they are every four days.

I think Amazon is OK with people trading codes, etc, but a code like 20% off laptop that works on Apple products had disaster written all over it. Nobody was going to go out and buy a KSO to get $10 off a case or toy purchase. They opened themselves to abuse and slew of buy/getcode/return transactions of KSOs. Not only they are losing from the promotion, but also from the returned KSOs. This particular promotion tempted me to get a KSO, and I already used two more codes (i.e., Kindle light code and Toy code) so far and will continue to do so in the future. In the mean time, I switched from reading on my tablet to KSO and finished 2 books already.

The "smart" thing would have been to make an exception for the 20% laptop code and tie it to each account. It could have been even applied to the account directly, without issuing any code, and if you had a qualifying purchase in your cart, then the discount would have kicked in...

The current method of using this code after they updated the list doesn't even involve using this code, because the CSRs can't apply a code on an ineligible laptop; so, they are manually reducing the price of the computers to reflect the same discount, leaving the code "unused". This will allow these people to purchase another laptop from the new list and flip that as well.

Again, I'm not endorsing the abuse that's taken place using this code, but Amazon should have seen this beforehand. Let's hope that they won't restrict every single "small" code to an account and take appropriate measures for the big codes only in the future.
