Weird, the link from Amazon directing you to the page says:

"After you have signed up for an AudibleListener membership, Audible will provide you with a promotional claim code that you can use on the Amazon.co.uk site. Please note that promotional claim codes will expire July 31, 2011 and must be redeemed before that date."


I signed up yesterday - here's the receipt fro Amazon:

"Amazon.co.uk items (Sold by Amazon EU S.a.r.L.):

1 Kindle Wireless Reading De... £111.00 1 £111.00

Dispatched via Royal Mail (estimated arrival date: May 11, 2011).

(I went for the fiver delivery, wants it now! Smile)

Yup, very unusual, looks like they have not updated the T&C.

Here's the Amazon link leading you to the first link I put up.

Like you say they must have extended the offer and forgot to update the T&C.
