Are you a New York Times reader who fancies a free e-reader? It's your lucky day: take out a Nook NYT subscription now and you get either a free Nook Simple Touch or a discounted Color.

From now until March 9th a one-year subscription to the NYT — $19.99 per month, or about $240 for the year — bags you a free Simple Touch (usually $99) or a Color if you stump up $99 (that's a $100 saving).


Alternatively, if you're a reader of People, you can get a Nook Tablet for $199 (that's $50 off) when you take out a one-year subscription to the magazine at $9.99 per month.

Full details are at B&N's special Nook NYT and Nook People pages. Be warned though: cancel your subscription early, and you have to pay back the discount in full. [Barnes & Noble via The Verge]
