Code didn’t work for me but CS offered a 30% refund after the Kindle is delivered.

Been eyeing this for awhile, thanks for the heads up OP!

I said I bought the device, but would rather buy the bundle. However, the code no longer worked for me. Since I already had the device, the CSR offered me a 30% off discount on the cover + power adapter, but this came out more expensive. He then offered my 30% off the discount, but after I mentioned it was more expensive than the price was "friend" paid by applying the code himself, he went to offer me 35% off.

Yes, that's correct. Unfortunately you can't directly use Libby and Overdrive services in Canada like Kindle users in the United States can.

However, there is a workaround as posted by @hwyone.

Thank you for answering all my questions!

If you're looking for the best deal, check out some of the other colour bundles available on that page.
The charcoal black, blue and red bundles are even cheaper at $246.97. Pretty good deal.

I bought my 8GB Oasis without the bundle for $254.99 back on Black Friday 2019. So almost $10 less now and you get 32GB storage + their nice leather case and charger included. Not bad at all.

Someone mentioned the possibility of a new Oasis coming out. I am not so sure. While I would love to hear there's a new one coming out, I feel like if there was, they would have mentioned it at the time they dropped the news about their new Kindle Scribe.

I love my Oasis (the dark mode + warm light combination is amazing in my opinion) and it has a really premium quality feel to it, but one thing I don't like about it is the battery life. No doubt you will get many many hours of use out of it in between charges, but for some reason it has a lower battery capacity than the cheaper Paperwhite models. That's always something that has bugged me. If I am paying a premium for the top of the line model, it should be better than the cheaper models in every aspect.

Anyone having any delivery issues with this item? I ordered the Essentials Bundle on Monday, October 3 with an expected delivery in Montreal of next day and have still not received it. I've been back and forth to Amazon a couple of times and still get "delay due to external factors" excuse. I'm sure I'll get it eventually but never experienced this before !

No delays here for the fabric case Essentials Bundle but they mentioned the same delays as I got it delivered to my local CP counter, on Montréal North Shore.
Ordered on the 3rd, and they first said it would be there by the 11th but ready for pickup on the 6th.

When did you receive it?

Finally got delivered in the evening of Friday, the 7th. Not sure why the delay but it was worth the wait. Replacing an old 10 year old Kobo Glo original. Really enjoying it so far.
Thanks to all for the responses.
