News, deals, free books and more!

Hi, welcome to the Great Kindle Deals - the blog that will keep you up to date with the latest Kindle Deals and more. This week we are the number 3 blog on the Kindle Store so thank you ever so much for subscribing. Let's get straight into the news:

1. Amazon's Black Friday Deals - As predicted Amazon did not offer any discounts on the Wifi or 3G Kindle in the UK; in the US, they sold off "thousands" of old stock Kindle 2s. Amazon clearly does not need to lower the price of the Kindle although a £99 price point in the UK might make the Kindle seem that bit more appealing. Amazon sold thousands of other items at discounted prices, this could really be the beginning of the American tradition moving to the UK. Meanwhile until Monday you can get £20 off £60 at - the Amazon owned footwear retailer, with free 24-hour shipping, if you click here and use coupon code "JAVMODEL." You can also get £2 free to spend on MP3s when you spend £10 in the Amazon music store located here.

2. Amazon Italy opens - Amazon has launched and the lucky folk over in italy are now able to get products from Amazon without having to pay import duties or excessive shipping. In facet is offering 1 year of Amazon Prime membership for under ten euros which guarantees delivery within two to three days.
