Daily Deals: eReaders and Tablets 4/26/12


It’s hard to believe but it’s been almost a month since last posting a sales and deals article.

So I scoured the web for a bunch of current sales and best deals for tablets and ereaders I could find and listed them all below. This time the list is broken up into new items and refurbished devices.

But first, Amazon is giving away a really cool $10 app today for free in honor of John James Audubon’s 227th birthday called Audubon Birds: A Field Guide to North American Birds. If you like bird watching it is definitely worth getting.

Now for the sales and deals…

New eReader and Tablet Deals

$99 Kobo Touch – This is the Mother’s Day bundle that includes a Kobo Touch and a gel skin case, which together normally cost $145.

$79 Kobo Touch with Offers – This is the Kobo Touch with advertisements on the screensaver.

$79 Kindle 4 with $30 Gift Card – WalMart’s April 29th flyer was leaked earlier in the month and it shows a deal for the non-touch Kindle 4 with special offers (ads) that comes with a $30 WalMart gift card, essentially making the Kindle 4 just $49.

$30 Off Nook Tablet at B&N – You can get $30 of either the 8GB Nook Tablet, making it $169, or the 16GB Nook Tablet, making it $219, when you purchase any two digital graphic novels from the Avengers Collection, which range in price from $6.99 to $14.99.

$599 3G Apple iPad 2 32GB – Daily Steals has the 3G iPad 2 on sale today only. That’s $130 less than the equivalent iPad 3 model (the upgrade is worth it, but to each their own).

$99 Polaroid 7″ Android 4.0 Tablet – This is about $50 less than other stores are selling it for right now. The deal ends Saturday the 28th and is an in-store only deal at Big Lots.

Sony PRS-T1 with Harry Potter eBook – Sony is running a Harry Potter bundle deal where they are giving away a free download voucher for Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone with the purchase of the PRS-T1 ebook reader for $129. Since the ebook only costs $7.99 that’s not really a very good deal.

Refurbished eReader and Tablet Deals

$59 Nook Touch – Barnes and Noble has the Nook Touch on sale again via their eBay store. This is about as good as it gets for a touchscreen E Ink ebook reader at this price.

$169 Kindle Fire – It’s not as good as the $139 deal a few weeks back but is still one of the best deals for a tablet at that price.

$199 Nook Tablet – Barnes and Noble offers the 16GB Nook Tablet for $50 off when buying refurbished.

$135 Nook Color – Barnes and Noble still has plenty of refurbished Nook Colors on eBay.

$189 Acer Iconia 7″ Android Tablet – This is a really good tablet except for the 4-5 hour battery life.

$289 Acer Iconia 10″ Android Tablet – This is the 16GB Acer Iconia A200 tablet with a 10″ screen. New it sells for about $339.

$150 Sony Reader PRS-900 – Taking it back a couple of generations, Sony’s old school Daily Edition can be had from Geeks.com for $250 less than it originally sold for back in the day.

  1. You don’t have to go through ebay to get the $135 Nook Color. It’s also on the BN website, though somewhat hidden. http://www.barnesandnoble.com/p/cert-pre-owned-nook-color-barnes-noble/1100666155

  2. Sony is running a special on the Tablet S in celebration of the Ice Cream Sandwich update:

    $50 off the 16G and 32G tablets, plus a free cradle through May 12, 2012.


  3. I don’t know which e-ink ereader available for countries in Southeast Asia region. I have been waiting for Nook or Kindle available, but in vain. I wish to buy BeBook, but they are very difficult to get. Could you advice any ereader for us and where can we get them online?

    • I’m not really familiar with places to buy in Southeast Asia. Amazon does ship the Kindle to a lot of Asian countries, it just depends which one. BeBook has gone bankrupt, last I heard. There are a lot of options out of China and Korea with the likes of iriver and Hanvon.
