Fancy buying a Kobo Arc tablet? This weekend might be a good time to do so. If you’re buying a Kobo Arc from Chapters, they will throw in a $20 gift card for free.
The purchase price on this 7″ 16GB Kobo Arc is $199.99 with free shipping, so they’re pretty much giving you 10% back in the value of the gift card. This Kobo Arc deal from Chapters is available both online at the above link, or in-store if you happen to be braving the elements.
Price-wise, the Kobo Arc is also $200 at the likes of Best Buy and Future Shop, so there’s no difference in the base price. The real benefit is getting the free $20 Chapters gift card this weekend. You can then use the gift card for buying books at Kobo.com, or for merchandise from Chapters.
I quite like the look of this, especially because it’s more of a colour “e-reader.” I have a Sony e-reader which is only monochrome, so I miss out on any colour benefits. I do read a few books on my iPad through the Kobo app, but it’s definitely not quite as easy to read a book on the iPad as it would be for a dedicated reader.
