Another $3 from Kindle Offers

Note: This is the second installment in a series of posts about saving money with one of my recent purchases– a Kindle Touch with Offers.
I haven’t been to a movie theater in years. Don’t get me wrong, I like movies as much as the average person. It’s just that I spend all my movie watching time at home on my couch. While my movie library at home excludes all the flicks in the theaters, it’s not too shabby thanks to Amazon’s Instant Video service.
With Amazon Instant Video, one can buy or rent any number of movies and TV shows. Often you’ll find they have specials on popular movie titles ($0.99 or $1.99 to rent) or TV series ($15.99 to own an entire season of NBC’s “The West Wing”). I use it all the time.
Given how much I like this service, you can imagine how happy I was to see an offer from it show up on my Kindle last week. What was the offer? “Get $3 off Amazon Instant Videos”. All I had to do was enter a coupon code on Amazon site and I could use $3 just like a gift card on the Amazon Instant Video site. That’s $3 that I would have spent on the service regardless of getting the special offer.
So, with my $3 off coupon, I can now say that I basically paid $92 ($99 - $5 - $3) for my Kindle!
