I have been using the Remarkable 2 tablet for work and reading books since November and absolutely love it.
They are never discounted unless when you preorder the tablet.
They have just launched their referral program which gives the referrer and referee a discount of $68.
To be eligible for the referral program, you need to own the device for more than 30 days and remarkable will send you an email as part of their gradual rollout.
Please note that markers start at $79 and folios start at $119 on Remarkable website. However there are cheaper alternatives available.

- Send any note or pdf to your email from the Remarkable 2 (it doesn't allow you to receive emails on this tablet as the idea of it is providing you a distraction free tablet)
- Save an article from Google Chrome to read later on Remarkable 2 with one click (add-in available in Google Chrome store)
- no backlight (however this helps you read for hours without eye strain)
- You cannot download ebooks from store or internet (you need to save ebooks in pdf or ePUB format via the application available on Appstore/Google store/PC)
- limited functionality in reading (i.e. No dictionary, nor any quick ways to jump back and forth between particular pages aside from scrolling through them as a list)
While there is someone mentioning about the not so great service quality in the comments - I have had great experience so far when I contacted them for my preorder and for the referral program. So that can vary on the person serving you. I think you can get bad service even in Apple store.
