Now Giving Away a Kindle with a 3 Night Stay

Is that a Kindle in your suitcase or are you just happy to see me? is running a new promotion this week. If you book a 3 night or longer stay in certain hotels, the booking site will send you a coupon that you can redeem for a free Kindle.

This isn’t the first time I’ve heard of it being given away as a freebie, and it does seem to have become the most noticeable giveaway item. At least 1 insurance company has given it away with new account sign ups, and so has a New England bank.

So does this mean that the Kindle the ubiquitousness of the common toaster? Toasters used to be the epimtome of a freebie; do you think that changed?
