Get $100 off the Amazon Kindle

Captain's Log, Supplemental

I don't normally post about Amazon promotions, but this is really cool.

You can get $100 off the Kindle (making it $259) if you sign up for the Amazon Visa credit card online and then buy the Kindle with a promo code.

From the Amazon info page:

Here's how this works in three easy steps:

Step 1: Apply online. Get a response in as little as 30 seconds. If you’re approved, we will instantly add the card to your account and you’ll get $30 back on your credit card statement after your purchase.

Step 2: Add a Kindle to your cart and proceed to checkout.

Step 3: During checkout, be sure to place your order using the Rewards Visa Card and enter this promo code: VISACARD. You will see the additional $70 savings at checkout. See details below.

Camy here: I'm considering this offer myself because I've wanted a Kindle for so long! I already have an Amazon Visa card, so I wouldn't get the $30 back on my statement, but I think I can still use the promo code and get the $70 off in my shopping cart.

  1. Thanks for the post! I already have an Amazon card too, but I will check it out.

  2. Oh no! I've been trying to talk myself out of the Amazon Kindle--now I can possibly get $ off through the VISA card?! Yikes! I may have a new toy soon. :)

  3. My husband got me the Kindle for Christmas and I love it! I have actually caught myself trying to turn the page because I forget I'm not reading an actual book.
