Amazon Promotion Sells Zune for $9012 Dec, 2006 By: Jessica Wolf
Amazon shoppers keep racking up the deals on entertainment gadgets this season.
For the third week in a row, the top vote getter for the site's “Consumer Vote” promotion, which allows visitors to vote for an amazing deal on a selection of goods, has been an entertainment product. This time it's Microsoft's new MP3 player the Zune for $90.
Only 1,000 randomly selected posters who voted for the device will get the deal, which is $130 off Amazon's list price of the gadget.
Previous "winners" in the etailer's Customer Vote promotion, which runs through the holidays, include a portable DVD player, a 42" flat panel LCD HDTV set and an Xbox core system — all at significant savings over the normal Amazon price.
