I paid full price of $299 a few weeks ago, but thought more Ozbargainers might be interested.. unsure of coupon expiry though I assume it is valid until end of October since I think it is for the "Great October Sale" or something like that (from memory when I did a dummy cart for the cover, and yes %25 off that makes the cover about $40 instead of $59).
IMO Sony touch screen E-INK e-readers crap all over other e-ink readers even the Nook, Kobo, and even dare I say the Kindle lol, which is why I was happy to pay full price. Now with this 25% discount, I'd say it is a bargain!
And Apple fanboys, please don't just jump in and say the iPad is a better e-reader cos it is not, unless you truly think reading a novel from a glossy reflective LCD screen for extended periods of time is a good thing, and not to mention the cost if all you want is an ereader, lol
