Extended Kindle Trial Period for the Holidays

From the Amazon Forums

Amazon is extending their return policy for the holidays for items shipped between November 1 and December 31, 2008. If you want to purchase a Kindle or any other item as gift, this is a great deal.

That said, for those using the SquareTrade Insurance, you'd still have to insure within the first the 30 days. I don't know if there will be a refund from ST if the item is returned.

Holiday Returns Policy

Our standard policy is to accept most returns within 30 days from the date of delivery. However, we understand that many customers like to order holiday gifts early, so we have extended our returns period for the holidays.

Items sold by Amazon.com and shipped between November 1 and December 31, 2008, may be returned until January 31, 2009 for a full refund, subject to our other returns restrictions listed below.

Wow... so can I use the Orpah coupon on the first? Was going to get my mom a Kindle for the holiday but was concerned that it would not be returnable if she couldn't figure it out. (Yea, I know... she couldn't figure out a digital picture frame we go her.)

This would be great news if I could buy this on Nov 1 and be able to return it until Jan 31st.

It looks like you can use the discount today as well. As long as it ships after Nov. 1st.

I guess this is really a 3 month trail.

The Oprah says valid "till" Nov 1st. That must include the 1st, right?

That *IS* fascinating! Too bad I'm not a Kindle fan - but I'm seriously tempted.

Don't try it. Because you will love it and be a Kindle fan. We can't have that, can we?

It makes sense to me that it would work up until midnight of Nov. 1 in your local timezone but didn't some book freebie recently disappear as sooner than expected but still on the day it was supposed to?

"Till" to me means that as soon as the date changes the promotion is over. Otherwise, I think they would have written "through." My guess, of course.

I might be tempted, except there's no Sprint EVDO service out where I live (there is EVDO, but it's only Altel and Verizon). Yeah I know you can hook it up to the PC, but then that diminishes its distinction from other devices.

Okay, that makes more sense. Everyone placing a Kindle order with the Oprah discount should do so today.

There is also the low book prices. And as some are doing (though I think it's an expensive way to go), you can "transition" some of those books to other readers.

I know. Right now I'm seriously leaning towards picking up a BeBook - that way I'll be able to put OpenInkpot onto it.

Yes! As a matter of fact, they decided it was a WARRANTY REPAIR! Yoo-Hoo!

Even so, I'm still fighting to get my EB-100 repaired and I'm seriously considering adding a Jinke V3 - either the BeBook or the EZ-Reader variant - to my stable.
