Amazon has announced a Kindle Fire HDX payment plan for qualified shoppers.
The plans start at $57.25 for the 7-inch version, and $94.75 for the 8.9-inch model, with three more payments charged to your credit card every three months. There’s no credit check, no finance charges and no interest. Prime membership is not required either.
The catch? You must have had an account in good standing with Amazon for at least two years.
In case anyone is thinking they can pay the down payment and then skip off, Amazon has measures in place to combat any attempted thefts. If any of the three payments don’t go through, Amazon will deregister the Fire, block access to your Kindle and Prime libraries, and possibly suspend you from the website.
If you want to grab a Fire, you have until 11:59pm Christmas Eve, but if the idea is a hit, Amazon will probably bring it back in 2014.
What do you think of this idea? Is it enough to get you to buy an HDX?
