Amazon has gone out of its way to make the Kindle Fire tablets absolute steals this beginning of the holiday shopping season, but just because Black Friday and Cyber Monday are behind us, it doesn’t mean the retailer’s special offers have to stop.
The Fire HD 7 and HDX 7 might be back to their list prices ($139 and $229 and up respectively), the spanking new Fire HDX 8.9 doesn’t look keen to budge, so it’s Fire HD 8.9’s turn to throw a little incentive towards prospective buyers. Discounted a while ago to $229 in a Wi-Fi only variation with 16 GB built-in storage and special offers, the Full HD beast can now be had for a measly $199.
Shall I go there? Alright, I’m going. 200 bucks is 100 south of iPad mini’s starting price and $200 less than what Apple charges for the iPad mini 2. Even Asus and Google’s Nexus 7 2013, whose primary selling point is budget consciousness, is officially more expensive than the Fire HD 8.9, at $230. Time is of the essence however if you’re thinking of scoring the 8.9-incher, as Amazon’s latest deal, like all Amazon deals, has an expiration date: 3 AM EST on Monday.
Also, be sure to apply the coupon code from here to get the $30 off. The promo is valid for the non-LTE version with and without ads and sponsored screensavers, the latter costing $214. Yo Santa, sounds like you messed up your dates and delivered some Christmas gifts early this year. Via [Amazon]
