A colleague recently asked me, "Are there educator discounts for eReaders--like Amazon's Kindle or Barnes & Noble's Nook--available like they have for computers?"
The answer to that question comes in two parts, both negative. To the best of my knowledge, there are NO discounts for educators interested in purchasing eReaders like Amazon Kindle or the Barnes and Noble Nook (4c online here). The discounts aren't available to education organizations either.
I was particularly disappointed to read this about the Nook, a device which I have purchased and prefer over others:
Educator discounts are not available on the purchase of any of the following:.. NOOK™ and related accessories; other hardware and electronics; software; downloadable audiobooks in MP3 or any other format; . . .Educator discounts are also not available on purchases at any Barnes & Noble College Bookstores or websites. (Source - 4c, Educator Program Terms & Conditions )When you read B&Nobles' terms, you realize that discounts just plain aren't granted for education-related stuff. What's up with that?
