From the current history, it looks like you can ask for a spot instance with a max price close to the on-demand pricing and end up having a permanent instance running at 40-60% discount... Getting interesting for added capacity in a server group (mixing on-demand for availability and spot for low-price: worst case you end-up launching on-demand instances if spot instances become unavailable. Of course if a lot of people start to do that, the price will go up! Oops, I just revealed the secret.
