Nook Tablet for $199 + free ship at eBay (Daily Deal)

pretty much what the title says:

eBay Daily Deal (Feb 17)

NEW Nook Tablet for $199 + free shipping direct from BN

link: http://deals.ebay.com/?_trksid=p5197.m1256

Hopefully no affiliate links since I typed in www.ebay.com and then just clicked on the Daily Deal splash screen.

There is some sort of a countdown timer in the corner, which seems to indicate about 4 1/2 hours left on the deal (currently 6:30 am US Pacific time) - not a lot of time, if that's what it's for.

B&N must have decided to add a second day.

Don't know, but they've been doing various offers through eBay for a long time now. Perhaps because it's gets their product in front of a different audience?

And also so they don't have to give the additional $25 off for members.

It's possible ebay is offering reduced transaction/listing fees.

It allows people to use their "ebay bucks" toward the purchase.

1542 sold so far

That sounds good.

As for me, I don't do eBay or PayPal.

I think it's also B&N's way of price-differentiating and getting every last sale from the real bargain hunters, who would be expected to price check on eBay anyway before buying. And, this way, B&N also doesn't have to put the cheaper price on the official B&N website and "formally" acknowledge it.

I bought my Nook Color from one of these "direct from B&N" eBay deals, although mine was a sale of refurbished ones, and it DID ship straight from B&N, although in a typical refurb "white box". I've been totally happy with it.
