Recent Kindle Purchaser? Ask About The Rebate

Jeff wrote in to say he requested and received a $60 rebate on his new Kindle purchase from Amazon yesterday.

Received my new Kindle today, same day I heard about their price drop to $299. Obviously I wanted to see if I could get some cash back. Did their customer callback and got a call as soon as I hit OK. CSR said the shipping cutoff for a partial refund was July 8th and that they’d be crediting me $60 in 2-3 days.

We called Amazon to see whether this rebate was automatic or if you have to request it. Our CSR seemed a little confused by the question but confirmed you’d have to call in with your order number or email associated with the account to have them authorize the rebate.
