Refurbished Sony PRS-505 on sale, worldwide shipping

If you're looking for a Sony PRS-505 reader, but unable to justify spending around $270 pre-tax, you may want to quickly head over to eXpansys UK and grab one of the remaining 22 refurbished silver units that are currently on sale for £133.99 (or roughly $195). Shipping is worldwide.

If you live in the US, the total price including shipping is around $210; with a coupon code I was told you can deduct further £10.

Visit this ongoing discussion for more. Thanks to MobileReaders Tripitaka and Faenad for the pointer!

It bit funny, before I bought my PRS-505 for £166.00 (ebay), I had look at eXpansys UK but they were selling them at the same price as a new one.

Only if I waited, a bit longer. Every penny counts.

FWIW, when I tried to pay with Google Checkout it said it couldn't accept that payment for orders to the US. I had to start over and choose PayPal.

Good Luck

Lotsa luck getting one of these from Expansys. They are selling stock they don't have and can't get. I placed an order on Tuesday when they supposedly had 66 of them in stock. Order went through and said it would ship in 3 days. Checked order status and now it says there is no stock, item was discontinued, but it may ship in 38 days. Way to go!

I am not pleased. Unless something changes in the next couple of days they are fired.

Nevermind, I should read parent post more carefully.

If you don't mind my asking; when did you order? I ask because I ordered mine on Monday night (Tuesday AM UK time). I got no love.

Thanks for the reply. It's looking like they had items in stock in the UK and thereabouts but not here in the US. I gave up and bought one new from a local retailer. I believe it was the only time in the last 7 or 8 years that I've paid msrp for any electronic device. Looks like all the hype around the Kindle 2 has boosted ebooks in general. I really only started looking at these about 6 weeks ago and they are jumping off the shelves.
