Nook Media, Barnes & Noble’s digital publishing business, is offering a pretty good deal on its tablet.
For a limited time, if you purchase a Nook HD+ tablet, you will get a free Nook Simple Touch device, the company’s $79 eInk eReader. The deal is good at Barnes & Noble retail stores, Barnes & Noble College Bookstores, Nook.com, as well as through other retailers that carry the devices Walmart.com, Target and Best Buy. The promotion runs from March 24th through March 31st.
The Nook business has been struggling these days. Barnes & Noble reported that the Nook business had a 26 percent decrease in sales during the 2012 holiday season, versus the 2011 season.
