Speaking of Amazon, while browsing around in their Kindle ebook pages, you may see an offer for a $5 ebook credit when you spend $20+ in Kindle ebooks between January 22-28 in 2019. This offers requires a login to see, and after you login, you have to activate it before it goes live. Thus, no direct link to the offer, but if you start browsing around the Kindle pages, you may see it. I don’t know if it is targeted or not…

Look for this mini banner on top of Kindle-related Amazon product pages:

Once upon a time I had the original Fire tablet, which, tech-trivia factoid, had the same outer shell as the Blackberry Playbook. Back when Blackberry made …tablets!?!?!?
