A new deal came across my inbox this morning, and for the first time in a long while I was surprised. Barnes & Noble has set a new low for the Nook Touch. You can now get the refurbished unit for a mere $65 on Ebay. That’ s a record for B&N, and it’s under half the original retail for this less than a year old ereader.
This deal comes only days after Barnes & Noble offered the Nook Color and Nook Touch as a pair for $150. They sold over 5800 units in that deal, but apparently it wasn’t enough.
When I wrote about that past sale, I mentioned that B&N seems to be working their way toward giving away their ereaders. That doesn’t seem like such a joke anymore does it?
