Update to this: MrsG decided that it would probably be best if we didn't share a Kindle, and who am I to disagree? Turns out, however, that the $75-off deal was single use. MrsG thought to check and see if her mother had the same offer, and it turns out she did. MrsG asked her to buy one and have it shipped to us, which MIL was happy to do. Then, when MrsG promised to send a check, MIL responded with "we'll settle up later" which is MIL's code for "it's on me."
We now each have our own Paperwhite for a grand total of less than $50.
