There have been Nook Tablet deals before, but they've often meant signing up for a subscription. Until midnight on Friday, however, you can get a Nook Tablet for $199, no strings attached.
Head over to eBay, use the promo code CNOOKDEAL, and you're done. That makes the Nook the same prices as the Kindle Fire. While we don't like the Nook quite as much as the Fire, it's a good deal, and the fact that the it's insanely easy to root may well swing it, if you're so inclined. [eBay via CNET]
