despite a clock saying 7 hours left at the time.
7:38PM Tuesday PDT. This was a WASTE of Time not to make sure we knew there was a limit and that the limit was shown to us. It wasted my time and that of readers. I apologize for my part in it. [I found out that some reading here were able to get it in time, at least.]
EARLIER, and no longer applies, thanks to a not-well-thought-out offer
They've had better deals, usually $20 for $10 but I thought I should make sure people know it's available.
Note that if you do take their offer, the idea is to let you know that AmazonLocal is available and has special deals in your area (which some Kindle-Special-Offer model owners already see) to save "up to 75% in your city."
You'd be subscribing to alerts of local deals in your local area, so you would start seeing these in your email if you don't already.
In my case, the email said, "We are no longer sending you daily deals, but we wanted to make sure you saw this special offer" and yet it says I'm subscribed to them and I don't remember opting out. That email then gave me a link to unsubscribe from ALL AmazonLocal emails, which I haven't.
Amazon is a big investor in LivingSocial, Bloomberg Businessweek notes today while also saying that AmazonLocal is Amazon's "answer to deals sites such as Groupon and LivingSocial."
Their more-local offers are of course U.S. only, but they don't make it clear whether the Amazon offer today also applies to non-USA customers who are Amazon.com customers, but I'd think it's not likely because if you do "sign in to AmazonLocal" with your Amazon.com account, you'd not be in their U.S. areas.
If you check it out, of course remember Amazon's daily Kindle deal too, which changes each night around midnight and is primarily U.S., with some exceptions.
At the time I post this, less than 7 hours are left for the (small) AmazonLocal offer.
