Amazon offering cheaper, ad-based Wi-Fi Kindle for $114

Everyone just wants a piece of Groupon. That's what Amazon is doing by throwing an even cheaper Kindle - for just $114 - which includes advertised deals like "a $20 Amazon gift card for $10" or "an album from the Amazon MP3 store for $1." Best of all, it does it all through the screen saver, so your reading is never interrupted...but after a long day, you could "open" your book to see a sweet deal. Or possibly a worthless one that is still prettier than the wallpaper sitting on the e-reader's screen.

The Kindle with Benefits will release on May 3rd.
