New Open Box Kobo Auras Going for $68

I happened to come across a listing yesterday with a seller offering some Kobo Auras on eBay for $67.95. The item condition is listed as “new open box”, so they were most likely demo units or leftover stock. Either way they are the version with the magenta-colored back. Kobo dropped the price of the Aura […]
