Received the email tonight also. I wonder if they'll sell out quickly.

Wow, that's a good deal, if they actually have enough stock. Could be they have two covers and then - sorry, sold out!

I was on the Sonystyle website this morning, and they are offering a $50 gift card with purchase of either PRS-350/650, good until the end of the month. I'm not sure which deal I prefer.

Lucky guys.
There's no such promotion at Sony Germany or German bookstores selling the PRS devices.

They told me no, they never got any in, they have none on order, and they don't plan on doing anything about it. sadface.

The problem with Borders is that they don't have many covers. The one I checked had three 650s and two covers. After I showed up, they were down to two 650's and one cover. I didn't ask if they are giving rain checks for those who buy the 650 and want a free cover. Does the email say anything about being limited to items in stock only?

I ordered my PRS-650 yesterday on the phone with Sony. When I read about this Borders promotion I got on the phone to find out if it was a Sony or Borders promotion. To Sony's credit they said it was not their promotion but would match the offer. I had to do was provide a copy of the promotion and email it to them. The email I received was specific to my order number, so I guess a phone call to Sony Style gets the ball rolling.

I'm thinking I like Sony

The email from Borders says that the offer is only good in store. Given how few covers Borders has on hand, the Sony price matching might be the best way to go. The Borders email has been posted over in the Sony Reader forum.

I'm in St Louis and the two stores near me weren't aware of the promotion and the stores don't have covers. Last week one of these stores told my mother that no covers were expected until after the first of November. I've emailed Borders to ask if they plan on honoring the coupon. I've also told them to prove me wrong about it being a ploy to lure in customers hoping they'd buy a reader even though there were no covers.

It's no longer just limited to Borders though. I just checked B&H and they're having the same offer. A bit upset because I just placed an order for both the reader and the lighted case last week. Had to pay full price for both and the items haven't even shipped..

But I guess others should take advantage of the offer. Offer ends 30/10/2010.

Yes, I just received another email from Border's with the same offer and now it says "Valid in-store and at Borders.com" This time there are promotional codes for the readers.

@zhi: If your order hasn't shipped, you might be able to cancel??
