Is the limit of 5 Kindles something new? Is it because of the high demand for them? I have purchased 12 in the last month and they are all registered to my Amazon.com account. I also hope to receive more grant money to purchase additional Kindles.
Here is a link on this topic. The articles says "It seems that sales of the Kindle Wi-Fi have been so strong, that Amazon had to implement a limit of 5 Kindle Wi-Fi ereaders per customer order. Since the new Kindle ereaders debuted, Amazon has had a tough time keeping them in stock and quickly fulfilling orders." It appears that the limit applies to both the 3G and the Wifi-only models.
I got a 2,000.00 grant from Target. I purchased the Kindles through my own Amazon.com account. We thought it was best not to tie the Kindles to the school's credit card since we were using grant money.

Tammy, where did you get your grant money? Did you have to purchase the Kindles through the school?
Our college orders high volumes of Kindles (a single class is about 20-30 students alone), but we have an account with Amazon specifically for this - I would contact Rausch, Daniel [firstname.lastname@example.org] to get one of these accounts - he is the education manager for the Kindle division.
No problem! Also, when you order using a school account, Amazon makes sure that it is marked as a gift - this ensures that the school account is not attached to the actual Kindle when it is shipped. In other words, students won't be able to buy books on the school's account - they will need to supply their own Amazon account in the device options.
