Kindle w/Special Offers: $5 off an order of $10+ (claim it by Dec-6-2011)

This offer is only available to e-ink Kindles with Special Offers activated, and the offer can only be claimed on actual Kindle hardware devices! From now until the end of day on December 6, 2011, you can claim a discount for $5 off an order of $10+. Once you claim it, you have until January 6, 2012 to use it.

If you are looking for ideas to spend it, there's always Class 10 SDHC cards.

PS #1: If you have a Kindle without Special Offers, but you want in on the offers, you can selectively turn offers on and off according to this Amazon Forums thread (I don't have access to a non-SpecialOffers Kindle, so I can't test it). [As far as I know the Kindle Fire is not participating in Special Offers]

PS #2: If you are not familiar with Kindle with Special Offers offers, there are two deadlines you need to pay attention to:

Bargain hunters: you can add Special Offers to a non-Special-Offers Kindle

This is of interest to bargain hunters: if you have a Kindle device _without_ Special Offers, but want to take advantage of the Special Offers, a Kindle user in the Kindle Forums (via Fat Wallet) has discovered that you can activate or deactivate Special Offers at any time, and without cost. I don't have a way to test this, so check the above forums for questions. This turned into a long-winded post, so more after the jump...

This is a heads-up! One of the upcoming specials for owners of the Kindle with Special Offers (aka Kindle SO) will be a 25% off discount on select digital cameras and camcorders. The teaser does not mention any details on the promotion, so I don't know how many cameras and which cameras will be included in the promotion. We will post an alert on this blog when the deal goes live - probably in the next few weeks or so. (This is a long post, more after the jump...)

Update: Kindle SO a good deal for some Amazon shoppers (audiobooks, Chase, Roku) but one unknown remains

I have just updated the Deal or No Deal: Kindle with Special Offers diary, and it is time to summarize the findings so far! The diary will continue to be updated...

The Good News: If you are a frequent Amazon shopper, and a combination of the items offered match your needs, the Kindle with Special Offers (Kindle SO) is a great deal from a bargain hunter's perspective!

The Unknown: Will the promotions keep repeating every few weeks, so new Kindle SO owners will always have a shot to get them? If yes, that's great! If not, and the promotions are only offered once, then this is not as good of a deal. Only time will tell.

The Constant: All the offers so far are limit one! You cannot sign up for the same offer multiple times.

50% off Roku boxes for Kindle SO owners only (limited time)

This offer is only good for owners of the Kindle with Special Offers (Kindle SO). One of the current offers offers 50% off the current prices of three Roku boxes. You can only get this deal through the Kindle SO, the link here is for reference purposes only! To get this deal, select this offer from the Kindle SO, and in two days you will receive an email from Amazon with the offer details, sent to the email address associated with your Amazon.com account (not sure why they have this delay). The Roku boxes rarely get discounted this much, usually Black Fridays or special occasions.

Of photographer interest, the Roku boxes have free apps for flickr, Picasa, Smugmug, Vimeo, and Facebook Photos, and they can be used to view pictures or slide-shows. One potential use - replace the CD/DVD player playing your picture slide-shows on a HDTV with a Roku box connected to the internets.

As to whether the Kindle w/Special Offers is a good deal, we have an on-going investigative deal-or-no-deal diary keeping track of what is offered.
