It’s tough to keep up with all the smart merchandising and discounting Amazon does this time of year, but today’s medley of limited-time holiday deals is worth making a special effort to tell you about.
$125 off Fire HDX 8.9″ – This is not the latest generation Fire HDX 8.9, but it’s still an impressive deal on the previous generation model. So it places the full-size tablet at a very attractive price point. It’s available today only, December 15th, or while supplies last. They’re cleaning out the inventory on the old models.
$20 off Amazon Fire TV – The full-featured Fire TV is on sale for $79, compared with the usual price of $99. This one is described as a “limited-time offer,” so there’s no telling how long it will last.
$30 off Fire HD Kids Edition Tablet – Again, a “limited-time” offer on the kids version of the 6″ or 7″ HD Fire tablet. They come with thick, soft protective casing and an unusual two-year, worry-free guarantee. One year of Amazon FreeTime Unlimited is included in the deal, along with best-in-class parental controls.
$20 off the Basic Kindle – Remember when we used to dream of a $50 Kindle? Well, this is pretty close: the new basic Kindle with touchscreen and Special Offers is on sale for $59, compared with the usual price of $79. You save $9 more when you add six months of Kindle Unlimited, Amazon’s subscription reading program. If you’ve been thinking you want to give this eReading thing a try but didn’t want to dig deeply into your credit card to do it, this is a good entry point.
$200 off 32GB unlocked Amazon Fire Phone – This phone is pretty terrific, based on my personal experience. I’ve been using mine since July 24th, and I even switched my cell number over from iPhone and moved from Verizon to AT&T to do it. I’m not saying there is no turning back, because the Apple Watch next year may lure me back to Apple. Meanwhile, this unlocked Fire phone can be used like an iPod Touch–everything the iPhone has without the phone. If you don’t sign up for a phone contract, it’s like a Fire Touch that takes great photos (with free unlimited storage in the Amazon Cloud for photos AND video), offers a sweet read of your Kindle books, and snaps real-world information with Firefly. Oh, and you get a year of free Prime, so this deal in effect makes the unlocked Fire Phone available for $199.
These are great products at terrific prices.
