Beleagured book retailer Barnes & Noble announced late last week a promotion that gives customers who buy a Private Brand NOOK HD+ between March 24, 2013, and March 31, 2013, will receive a free NOOK Simple Touch E Ink reader, a $79 value. This special limited time offer is available at all the nearly 700 Barnes & Noble retail stores nationwide, hundreds of Barnes & Noble College Bookstores and online at www.nook.com. The offer is also available between March 24, 2013, and March 30, 2013, through other leading retailers offering NOOK products, including Walmart.com, Target and Best Buy. This is the perfect way to experience all that NOOK has to offer, combining NOOK HD+, the lightest full 9-inch HD tablet ever invented, with a free NOOK Simple Touch, the highly acclaimed and easy-to-use E Ink reader.
“By offering a free NOOK Simple Touch with the purchase of NOOK HD+, customers can fully experience all that the expansive NOOK Store of more than 3 million titles has to offer,” said Jamie Iannone, President of Digital Products at NOOK Media LLC. “NOOK HD+, with its must-see full HD 9-inch screen, is perfect for experiencing movies, apps, magazines and more, while NOOK Simple Touch is ideal for reading millions of books with crisp, clear text on a portable and lightweight device that’s comfortable to hold for hours.”
