New York Times to Give Away Nook with Subscription

Barnes & Noble announced it will give a free Nook Simple Touch e-reader to customers who purchase a one-year digital subscription to The New York Times. The company also is offering its color e-Reader for $99 with the same subscription, and its Nook Tablet for $199 with 12 months worth of People magazine.
The Nook Simple Touch is an e-ink device with a 6-inch screen that sells for $99. Color Nook retails for $199 and the Nook Tablet , which like the Color Nook has a 7-inch screen, sells for $249.
Sure, the offers seem like significant savings – but they are only if you planned to subscribe to either the Times or People anyway.
For instance, The New York Times subscription through Barnes & Noble runs $19.99 a month and includes morning device delivery to the Nook and full access to B&N’s subscription for People magazine costs $9.99 a month.
The New York Times currently offers a digital subscription with access to its tablet app and website for $85 for 26 weeks, or roughly $13 a month. That $7 monthly premium would cover 85 percent of the cost of a Nook Simple Touch — meaning you’d be saving only $15 off the price of the device. Move up to the Nook Color and you still save only $16.
On the other hand, a one-year subscription to the print version of People is $113 including shipping, or $9.40 a month.  (The company offers a free digital subscription only with an existing print subscription.) Over a year, Nook subscribers will pay $5 toward the hardware, a total savings of $45 on the Nook Tablet.
The offer runs through March 9 and is available at Barnes & Noble retail stores and through its website.

    I owned the nook st for 2 days as it was an xmas gift. I liked it well enough despite some design flaws… too wide to fit in an inside jacket pocket, stiff buttons, hard to turn pages left handed, limited memory earmarked for b&n country only… to note a couple fast.still, I wasn’t annoyed w/ b&n till a FORCED update took away the web browser. A major reason I liked it was not so much the browser, but the listed att wifi coverage. Without a browser, I would not be able to login our accept terms through any hot spots outside my home! Major fail there.

    Still, I was going to keep it since it was a gift from the wife and kids. Upon realizing, forever, that he couldn’t play any games, or even listen to music (let alone the lack of web for wifi our reference use, text to spiral, audio books, multi touch, etc etc…my kindergartner became upset. I assured him that I didn’t needed an ereader to play games our music….i have n android phone and an ipad2 among other gadgets. Still out of the mouth of babes- he kind out ghat those other things all do more than one thing only (i can read books on am ipad, why shouldn’t an e reader at least play a little music. So, He asked his mom if”they” made an e reader with speakers. She said she right only three kindle since sony only bad a headphone jack, and he pleaded to exchange the nook for a linale touch.

    Sorry for miskeys, swype corrects and remembers old miskeys. Lol

    They exchanged it, against my request to keep the little guy happy bc assassin, desire it’s failings, I llc it well enough as JUST a reader. Boy was he right though!!! I liked the nook touch….iLOVE LOVE LOVE this kindle touch!!!. the pocket able size, the well thought out screen mapping, pinch to zoom text, A BROWSER, SPEAKERS, HEADPHONE JACK, the amazon store, the little games and doing experience, text yup speach (handy and nicer than I thoughtit would be)….. Even the”article mode” in the browser makes reading an article our report on line actually more comfortable to read then even my beloved ipad2! The ability to email docs, whoops in mobi format, pics, and mor directly to my kindle! And it’s all sired on amazons cloud for free! I mean come on! Plus the noo didn’t sync with the nook app on the ipad. So if I read a few pages on the ipad, and picked up the nook, out bad no idea I had advanced my place on souther devoir. Since having the kindle i’ve read on ipad, on my android phone kindle app and picked up the kindleto continue…. Each device knew I read on the other and orders to”jump to furthest read point” which of course I did.

    L, ololpick what u like most. Competition makes us consumers win. Just having owned both…. Well I see why the kindle won over most consumers
