Missed the Black Friday deal for the Nook Simple Touch Cream? B&N is running a promotion with MasterCard today for a free $25 B&N gift card when you buy a nook with your MasterCard. This amounts to a $75 Nook Touch (if that's the one you go for), and has the advantage that you start out life with your nook with $25 in happy book-buying credit.
If you've been thinking about one, today might be the day. Head over to http://www.barnesandnoble.com/ for the full details.
And lest I be too, too biased toward the purveyor of my beer money, the Kindle DX is also on major sale today, $120 off which puts it at a nice, $259. The number one complaint I hear about the nook is that it's too small, even though people like the e-ink. So if you're looking for a larger e-ink display, go nab the DX at it's great price.
