I Just Scored a Kindle E Reader for $90!

I just scored a new Kindle PaperWhite for $90 (list $119) plus tax.  Bargains like this usually fly under the radar, but Amazon has a promotion for a free Amazon Gift card PLUS 25% off a new Kindle E-reader.  Why is this a really good deal?  A re-certified Kindle PaperWhite is $99 with a 30 day return warranty.  Mine is new, less expensive and has a 1 year warranty!

This is how it worked for me.

  • Click on the link and answer two questions about my current Kindle.
  • Next fill out the info to ship your current device to Amazon.
  • Amazon then gave me a 25% off discount to apply to another Kindle.  I chose another PaperWhite, but you can choose any E Reader.  I selected Free Two Day Shipping so that my new Kindle would be delivered before I had to ship my old one to Amazon.
  • Today my new Kindle was delivered and I will ship the old one back on Monday.  As the kids would say, Easy Peasy, Lemon Squeezy.

Once Amazon looks at my old Kindle I will get a gift card for between $5-$25 which is icing on the cake.  The promotion is scheduled to last until September 29, 2018.  Click here to go to Amazon.  

  Jr. Ranger Program Open for Registration!

Srce: Jr. Ranger
The Junior Ranger Program is a great way to get your kids (both boys and girls) outdoors and into a free, safe, and fun program! Programs take place in several Santa Clara County Parks each spring and fall for kids ages 9-11 (usually 4th-5th grade). Junior rangers explore park history and nature through outdoor adventures with park staff. Students who successfully complete the program earn a badge and certificate! 
 
Fall dates begin Sept 4, 2018. Apply now.   Also, I could not find a requirement that you be a resident of Santa Clara County to apply.
