Save $70 or $100 on Kindle purchase

Through Sept 8, Amazon is running a "sale" on the Amazon Kindle, for those who have not gone paperless in their reading or perhaps now need to pick up a second unit for a family member. First, $30 of the discount is gained by applying for an Amazon Visa credit card, so if you already have this, you miss this portion. The remaining discount applies when you checkout (don't use 1-click; instead add the Kindle to your cart and go through the normal checkout process) - add the Kindle to your cart, set up payment using your Amazon Visa card and enter the discount code <b>VISACARD.</b> This part of the discount should work even if you already have the Amazon Visa credit card.

Here are all the details

Could they be looking to get rid of their current stock before a new version is announced?

I don't think so, most likely just a promotion to increase sales. In one of the Kindle videos, the CEO mentioned that a newer version of the Kindle is still a long ways off.

I'm pretty sure that's the answer. Seems like a good idea to move out stock befor the Christmas rush of new machines. However $250 is very tempting, ends in early September...I'll have to think about this one!

Get the Amazon Rewards Visa Card and Get $100 Off Kindle
Thanks to Chase, you get $100 off Kindle when you get the new Amazon.com Rewards Visa Card. Limited time only. Here's how this works: 1) Apply online. Get a response in as little as 30 seconds. If you’re approved, we will instantly add the card to your Amazon.com account and you’ll get $30 back on your credit card statement after your purchase. 2) Add a Kindle to your cart. 3) Place your order using the Amazon.com Rewards Visa Card and enter this promo code: VISACARD to get the additional $70 savings at checkout. Additional restrictions apply.

The discount is being offered directly by Chase - not Amazon at all (which is why if you bought within the last 30 days, they can't do an adjustment, as they normally would -- it isn't a price adjustment, but a promotion paid for by a third party in return for using their credit card).

I'm not convinced. Jeff Bezos has said in several interviews that it is going to be quite some time before the next version. Now he could be dissembling to avoid being stuck with an inventory of unsold current models when replacement or additional models is introduced, but I tend to find him credible based on past behavior.
