With the $25 discount, you are purchasing a version that contains sponsored screensavers. You will also receive offers directly on the Kindle that can save you money, mostly Amazon product discounts. The special offers and sponsored screensavers display on the screensaver and on the bottom of the home screen, so they do not interrupt your reading mojo.
It seems as though the advertisements will not be obtrusive and just may be worth the $25 discount. I have been contemplating a Kindle purchase and may jump on this deal. What I do know is that the Kindle is awesome. I saw it in action while we were in Hawaii and I was super impressed with how it looked in the sun, which is the big deal for me. I also love how many free ebooks are available to load to the Kindle.
You can pre-order the Kindle with Special Offers for $114 with FREE shipping right now and they should be available in the beginning of May.
Thanks, My Frugal Adventures!
