Amazon.com is introducing a new Kindle (wi-fi) model for $114, a bit cheaper than their current $139 wi-fi model.
The catch? Sponsored ads in the Kindle.
Concerning the ads:
Buick, Olay (Procter & Gamble), Visa, and Chase are sponsoring the first series of screensavers. Initial special offers include a $20 Amazon.com gift card for $10, an Amazon MP3 Store album for $1, a $100 Amazon.com gift card when you get an Amazon Rewards Visa card, and a $99 Roku Streaming Player for half off.
At least one of the ads is a potential money-saver, saving a customer $10 off of a $20 Amazon gift card.
So, would you buy a "sponsored" Kindle for $114?
