Saw this on the Amazon forums
and so far, I can only find this offer on Amazon. I checked Fictionwise, Books on Board and Sony Connect. Just because I didn't find elsewhere doesn't mean a similar offer won't pop up in the next few days or weeks.
Anyway here's the deal

I've placed my pre-order and am waiting for the short story to download. It doesn't seem to be instantaneous like regular purchases. I don't know how long it will take. I let you know when I receive it.
Edit: It just arrived after a 15 minute delay (I'm so spoiled by instantaneous Whispernet downloads).
