The Nook Color is currently listed on eBay for their Daily Deal as $249. However, they provide a -$50 off code (CBARNESDD) reducing the price to $199.

Which in my opinion is a great deal for the "e-reader" *cough froyo and future honeycomb tablet cough*

- Figured this belonged in the Nook Color section rather than the marketplace since I have no connection to the sale

Edit*

The good news it this last until March 3rd

The offer will expire at 8:00:00 AM PT on March 3, 2011

I just registered to post this, but I had a feeling someone already got a hold of this deal.

I've been curzing ebay for awhile now trying to find a good deal on a nook color, and I've been sad to see a lot of them going barely under retail. This is probably the cheapest you're going to see a nook color in a while...

Now, the hunt for a fast microSD card! ;)

It's interesting to note that B&N is the seller, which prompted me to buy. I wonder why the deal? But I'm not looking a gift horse in the mouth. (I actually know what this little saying means!)

This deal pushed me over the edge to finally get one. I mean, $200, is hard to beat. If anything it will give me something to tinker with and help me decide if a tablet will fill a niche in my life before I drop $600 on a fully featured one. I bet B&N sells a truck load of these things at that price. Do you think they are doing it to get some last minute customers before the Xoom comes out?

I went to B&N to see if they would price match. They said they could not since the Ebay ones are refurbs. The ebay page does not say that at all (at least, my reading and a ctrl+F can't find it), and ebay does not allow sellers to sell refurbs under the "New" label, so I hope this is not true, but it could be.

Also, would suck of B&N to sell refurbs at the same price as new units when not on sale.

I doubt a big company like B&N would risk such a faux pas. I bought one and if I find out it was indeed a refurb and sold under the 'New' label (which it is) it will be going back immediately. I don't mind a refurb but don't mislead me by stating it is new.

is it true the original nookcolors were easier to work with installing roms and such? we have 2, I've never had any probs on the 1st one the 2nd one has given me fits so much when I try to do anything with ADB or even running Froyo on an SD card that I went back to 1.1 rooted...

it runs fine this way, love it! just wondering...

I got one of these today for my daughter! thanks for the info :)

anyway I guess I was thinking IF these are refurbished or new models returned... maybe it's a good thing?!

I'm in for one also. Too good a deal to pass up.

I heard they've sold 7k of them this morning. I wonder how many they have in reserve.

Refurbed is hardly ever a good thing. Whatever reason it was returned for the problem is probably still there.

I don't think you understand what "Refurbed" means. Refurbished means that they've identified the problem or found there to be no problem (Lots of people return things due to problems from user error), and the outside casing/glass is usually replaced.

Also this is until the 3rd.

If it were refurbished, the $199 price would be the actual price without a coupon. This is just an eBay coupon off a NEW nook. When B&N sold refurbished e-ink nooks for $99, they were labeled as such.

why are they selling them on ebay instead of on the B&N site?

I got my confirmation that it was sent today. It did not have any tracking information though, so I don't have any idea when I am going to get it. I picked it up for my wife. Mines rooted with HC and its been great, but I think I will root hers and leave it with 1.1
