Based on its research and analysis, CIRP estimates that Kindle owners spend $1,233 per year on Amazon compared to $790 per year for Amazon shoppers who don’t own one of the company’s e-readers or tablets. Kindle owners aren’t necessarily buying more at a shot, but are buying more frequently.

Amazon plans to expand the deal to Dallas, New Orleans, and other cities next year.

My short review of this watch, which I’d obsessed over for a couple of months, is now online at Amazon. This Stuhrling Original Women’s 391L.01 Symphony Regent Majestic turns out to be a less than majestic purchase. Check out the review to see why.
