All I am after is a genuine sale.
If you think their "up to 80% off" fits that bill thats your prerogative.
...no I don't really wish I had a Kindle, I am against Amazon's "closed" system. But they do give better deals, BargainMoose aside.
Again I'm not so sure I agree. I think both services provide equally good value. Amazon puts on sale a hundred books a month at $3.99 and in a good month I'll find a couple that I'm actually interested in buying. Kobo's sales aren't that great either I find but they are pretty good at handing out 35/40/50% off coupons pretty regularly. I used to find that Amazon usually had slightly cheaper overall prices than Kobo but now that doesn't seem to be the case. I often find that Kobo has the same price or even cheaper than Amazon these days. Needless to say I get my books from whoever has them cheapest!
