US$20 Rebate for International Kindle

Is it because of the pressure from Barnes & Noble’s Nook, priced at US$259? or is it because of the unfairness of the extra US$20 for the international version of the Kindle? well, anyway, the latest news is there’s a rebate for us international users….a US$20 REBATE….woot.

Will post up a review of the Kindle in a day or two, but so far, loving it and the fast 3G modem for downloading books.

Hello,

Good news! Due to strong customer demand for our newest Kindle with U.S. and international wireless, we are consolidating our family of 6″ Kindles. As part of this consolidation, we are lowering the price of the Kindle you just purchased from $279 down to $259. You don’t need to do anything to get the lower price–we are automatically issuing you a $20 refund. This refund should be processed in the next few days and will appear as a credit on your next billing statement.

We’ll also send you a follow-up e-mail to confirm the refund once it has been completed.

We hope you enjoy your new Kindle. Please send us your feedback at: Kindle-feedback@amazon.com

Sincerely,

The Kindle Team
