Amazon, B&N are in the middle of an e-reader price war TODAY

I wasn’t planning to do another BFS post, but one of my readers pointed out that B&N are selling refurbished Nook Wifi ereaders for $79. You can find them on Ebay, and they come with the standard 1 year warranty.

I think I’m seeing a pattern here.

The Nook shows up in a Best Buy advert for $99. Amazon responded by offering refurbished K2 ereaders (tomorrow) for $89. B&N shoots back with the $79 Nook Wifi (they only started selling it 3 hours ago).

I was about to call this as the best Black Friday sale, but now I would bet dollars to donuts that Amazon will announce a better sale some time today.

Let’s see what happens.

    They delisted the $79.99 refurb, but have re-listed it at $99.99 (and the WiFi + 3G model for $119.99) for 26 more days. (Or at least until the supply runs out.)

      That listing went up 3 days ago, actually. Thirty days is the standard.
