Default Where to look for NC discounts

There have been several references lately to the Nook Color costing $200. It appears that was true at the end of February, but I can't find any current discounts from the list price of $250.

Which sites would you recommend watching for upcoming NC discounts?

Barnes and Noble, eBay, amazon, daily deal websites like Groupon, etc.

Usually if a deal like that arises, it will be made widely known.

Some good prices out there on ebay, but you gotta be patient. Just purchased a "lightly used" nook color w/pink leather case from ebay for $220 w/shipping. Today I ordered a new brown leather case and 5 screen protectors from the bay for $22. The pink leather one will be posted for sale on ebay within a few days of receiving it in hopes of recouping my $22 case/protector cost.

What amazes me in watching some of the ebay auctions is that people are actually paying more than $249 for a stock nook color when they can get it for that price direct from B&N with free shipping.

Happens all the time.

For a chuckle, look up the prices that the Nook Color sells for on Amazon. Lowest price is around $300.

Just a note. When I bought mine from BB, they had a $35 or $50 (can't remember which) rebate for any case. Though it may not be cash in hand, it was nice to not have to pay for the nice case I picked up.

Anyway, might be one of those deals that comes back around so keep an eye out.

I might have to put mine up on Amazon to see if I can get the $300 for it!
