I went out to buy a kindle today but i got there too late and all the stores are closed now since its sunday. Can I still buy one tomorrow and use the code or does it expire tonight?

The code doesn't "expire" until a month from tomorrow. As far as actually getting it, you can purchase a Kindle tomorrow...then set it up and request the code tomorrow (probably before midnight in some time zone). You should have plenty of time to purchase it and then claim the code tomorrow, then you'll have the next month to figure out how to use it.

Cool thanks! I actually almost ordered the 13' macbook pro then I decided to randomly cleck to see if there where any other offers or promo codes! Lucky me! thanks again I thought I just missed a great deal.

Another question. do all kindles have the special offer thing? i notice on Amazon they have a separate special offer one. If I go to the store do i have to looking for something that says special offer on it?

Not all kindles have special offers.. There is a kindle. And then there is a KSO (Kindle with special offers). Here's all you need to know: if it's $114, it's what you want. If it's $139, it's not (unless you want the KSO + 3G, which is also $139). If you're confused, just look for something that's $114 and you'll know you are getting the KSO...which is what you want.

Another way to see the differences would be to check out my underground website: Amazon.com. You can find these hidden in large font on the center of the front page.

"Those of you with a regular Kindle and wish you had a Special Offers Kindle (SOK): do a chat with Kindle support (start Chat and ask to be transferred to Kindle Support) and they will authorize a return for you and give you an 80%-100% refund of what you paid for your original Kindle device (even if you have had it for a year, as long as it is the latest version). You can then apply that towards the purchase of a SOK (Special Offers Kindle). This will pay for itself. Plus your warranty would start all over again."

If you bought it from Amazon...

Is there a coupon trading forum in Fatwallet?

But of course http://www.fatwallet.com/forums/online-coupon-trading/

Any issues applying 25/75 coupon at Office-Max?

I got some more kindles this morning, and when I register it to my account, only offers that I didn't use on another KSO show up. When I deregister and then re-register it to another Amazon account, the offers show up. Is anyone else with mutiples having this experience? Offers say one per device, not one per Amazon account, but it looks like 1 per Amazon account as well for me.

I have many kindles registered under my one account. No problems with getting codes.

Does anyone know how often the promo for the leather case comes around? I recently purchased a KSO and only have a few days left in the states before I go overseas for a one-year contract and was hoping to get a case before I left.

kindle support has been very willing to discount the case for those who missed the coupon.

Any idea if Kindle specific support has an email address? I cant do chat well (currently in no-mans land with dial up all thats available.) Thanks.

Found on the kindle support page (its a button) Will email them after I handcrank the genie again.

Sweet just got my kindle and my code! im pumped time for a macbook!

Got my Kindle but no wireless at work. I need wireless to register the Kindle and get the codes, right?

I think you can connect to a computer as well.

Hmm...almost all options greyed out while connected to my computer. Maybe because it's a work computer

Too bad... just saw that it qualified for a $25 Mp3 credit as well. That was smokin' while it lasted; just wish I would have seen it sooner.

So just to verify....I thought that coupon codes could be used freely between accounts, but I read elsewhere (can't find the thread) that it would be locked to the account that the Kindle was registered with in order to combat selling of codes. What's the true answer? I'm assuming freely tradeable since there is a trading thread.

It depends on the code. Some are locked to the particular Amazon account, others are one-time use codes that can be used by anyone with the code. This laptop code can definitely be used by anyone (I gave mine to a friend).

It seems like most of the codes that are locked to your account so far tend to be ones related to buying Kindle content (books for $1, etc).

Awesome...thanks. Got 3 KSOs today and wanted to use one of the codes and give the others away to friends/family. Thanks!

None of the codes (meaning those that require a coupon code to be put into your account) are locked into an Amazon account until they are put in. Once you put them in on your Amazon account, you can no longer sell them or give them away. Until that point, you can do whatever you want to do with them.

Wow... So easy. I ordered on Sat. From Amazon, and spoke with Customer service, they told me without the kindle in hand I could not receive a code (even though they saw I had ordered). So I cancelled and bought one from Office Max. (used the $10 off $40 coupon from FW to make the price the same as Amazon.com) Just sold the laptop coupon, thanks OP, already 1/2 way to paying for the kindle!

PharmerNate said:   Anyone know if the 20% off code works on the Amazzon computers that are valid for the free Xbox 360? If so, does the total still have to be above $699 AFTER the discount? Thanks.

Still trying to figure this one out. Can't find any wording to:
1) Specifically say that you can't do BOTH the discount and the free XBox 360, and
2) Say if the computer has to be $699 BEFORE or AFTER a discount is applied (assuming that you can do both)

Guess I'll just have to try it and hope for the best.

Sigh, I tried 2-3 times with chat and phone support but none of them would give me the discounted case.

I told them I know the leather case promo coupon comes and goes but I only have a few days left in the states before I leave for an overseas job for one year. I was wondering if they could either apply or provide me witha 50% off code now or retroactively apply a code to an order I placed today. They just kept on going on about how the promo is only during the promo period and that they can't do anything about it now and that I'd just have to wait.

People, this is NOT a thread for trading.

To keep our forums organized, we would like to keep all offers and requests for one-time-use coupons in Online Coupon Trading Forum. If you would like to request, share, trade, or sell a coupon that's the place to post.

Thanks!

Question: The KSO laptop link takes you to this page.. The page shows a bunch of models (533 last time I checked).

At the top it says:

Kindle With Special Offers
Through September 8, 2011, save 20% on select laptops. Shop for qualifying models.


The last sentence is a hyper-link which takes you to this page which currently shows only 40 models.

Can I order any of the 533 or so at the first link or do just the 40 at the second link work?

Second question: uafgrad posted "Once you put them in on your Amaz0n account, you can no longer sell them or give them away". This makes me hesitant to try the code out on one of the 533 only to have it locked to my account (and only usable on the 40).

Thanks!

I just used it on one of the models that is not listed in the link with 40 models. SO you could use it to buy any of the laptops in the link with 533 laptops and the code should work. FYI, I bought this laptop: http://www.amazon.com/Dell-X15L-1024ELS-Laptop-Elemental-Silver/...

HERE is a link to all items that qualify for the office supply coupons. Way more than the link provided in the email.

TY kiev.

Just a head's up: Amazon is starting to change the terms of their coupons. The laptop code right now no longer works for most Apple laptops. There is only one it still works on. It is obvious Amazon is in the process of revamping the terms and conditions of the coupon codes.

NEW LIST of laptops the code now only works on.

This is bait-and-switch, pure and simple. I'm going to be contacting them.
