Thanks for the ordering advice Koland and Brdwygurl! I appreciate the enabling.
Well played! Heh. My jaw dropped when I saw that the offer was 50% off the entire order, no limit. Got a total of 80 boxes of cereal and 30 packages of senseo coffee pods. Raisin Bran crunch, 18oz boxes, worked out to $1.25 each, Frosted Mini-Wheats were $1.00 a box...the senseo pods worked out to $1.60 per 18-count package..normally $4.50 at wal-mart, more at the local grocer (when they have them in-stock)

I had actually bought a NookColor for $160 on eBay a few weeks ago, which I quickly rooted and put CM7 on...I planned to sell my KSO to help defray the costs of my ghetto-Tablet, but now I'm gonna just keep both! The KSO has more than earned its keep! Plus there's truly nothing like the e-ink reader.

back to school backpacks and luggage is what I saw most of, including dry packs, hiking backpacks, hunting daypacks, even a surfboard bag.

Some team shirts (bike shirts, men's button downs), clocks/lights, games (outdoor/tabletop), at least one set of kiddie socks. Also, some tailgating gear.

I am exactly in the same boat as you. I have the NookColor with CM7 nightlies on it and kept the Kindle KSO for the e-ink screen. The KSO has already paid for itself and keeps giving me deals.:

Is there a way to get this offer back if it's already off your kso? I meant to claim this one, but forgot, and now it's not showing up on my kindle, so I can't get it now....Any way to get it?

eta: to clarify, I need to have the offer emailed to me so I can get the promo code. I could FOR SURE use this one! How do you get them to email you an offer that is not expired but not showing up on the kso anymore? Or can you?

Yeah, there's a ton of clothing and hats. If you search by brand or price range, it helps filter through the unwanted a bit.

For $25.00 total with free 2-day shipping, I ended up getting:
- Timbuk2 E-reader Sleeve for my new KSO (looks sold out for now)
- Timbuk2 Hidden Messenger bag (been needing one for travel)

It was like a BOGO for me, so I'm happy.

The are two things you can try:

First, de-register the KSO, the re-register, connect via WiFi or 3G and do a Sync. This will usually bring the offers back.

If that doesn't work, then copy all content of your KSO to your hard drive (\documents, \audible, etc). Do a full RESET (menu/settings/factory reset). Register the KSO after it reboots and do a Sync. That has always brought the offers back when I've tried it. Once you have the offer emailed to you, then plug it in and copy the content back to the Kindle (not the \system folder, leave it alone, other than the collections.JSON, if you are using collections; if you replace it, make sure you immediately do a RESTART after ejecting the KSO).

This is why I always send the offers to my email even if I don't think I'll use them. I'm sending you a PM.

Good luck. When I ordered early this morning, I got the last of the 3-panel sleeves (I originally tried to order 2, but someone must have bought one before I could check out) and they only had the $35 quilted E-reader sleeve in solid algae left (not my style). The Hidden Messengers are still available, but the quantities are really low now.
