I think thelios was posting amazement at B&N being first on a price reduction rather than specifically notifying anyone of this particular deal.
Could this be an indication of new attention to pricing on B&N's part, so that they will no longer lag hours or days behind other vendors, or is this just a one-time fluke? We can only hope.

I suspect it's because B&N's "new day" starts at midnight on the east coast, while Amazon's starts on the west coast. As a result, often if a publisher has set up a special priced for certain days, B&N's price will drop three hours (or a bit more, depending on when they actually run their daily update jobs on the servers) before Amazons.
On the other hand, it also means the sale often last three hours longer at Amazon, for those who find it late on the last day.
