Based on the few books I have browsed on amazon.com, I am noticing that in each case, the Kindle editions are significantly cheaper than what you can get from other ebook vendors. For example, a book that I looked at is listed at $17.99 on ebooks.com, but the Kindle edition is only $9.99. That is nearly 50% cheaper.
Does this pattern hold universally? I have an ebookwise which I love, but if the pattern holds, Kindle can pretty much pay for itself. If so, why isn't Amazon promoting this as a selling point?
Also, did they discontinue the $100 off offer if you sign up with the VISA card?

Amazon does promote this to some extent:

Technically the $9.99 price for Kindle books is for "New York Times® Best Sellers and New Releases, unless marked otherwise". For the most part, $9.99 or less is the standard price from what I've noticed. Occasionally, the Kindle version of a new book will debut higher than the marked down hard cover version of the book but within about a week it will drop down to $9.99.
My standard example:
I don't know much about the eBookwise reader but I'm sure someone who knows more can advise you.
And yes, the $100 off a Kindle offer is over.
