Considering an Android Tablet for digitally reading your periodicals? Like the New York Times? Barnes & Nobles has conjoured up a deal that might be up your alley. If you commit to a 1-year subscription to the New York Times at $19.99/month, you can now get the Nook Simple Touch for Free or the Nook Color for $99. The promotion lasts until March.
In each scenario you’re saving $99, while the NYT subscription will cost you $240. Once you do this math, it leaves you wondering if you’re actually getting a deal at all. I’d consider this more of a creative marketing strategy than a must snag deal… but for any of our readers that were already planning to subscribe to the New York Times, now might be the time to buy.
