Amazon’s Gold Box Deal today: Kindle DX for $269 ($110 off)
Amazon’s Gold Box Deal is not usually Kindle related, but today’s is. You can get the big reflective screen model, the
for $269. That’s $110 off. There are definitely people who love the DX…and it’s the only model I’ve never owned. Somebody jokingly said to me this week I should open a Kindle museum, and I couldn’t without that…but I’m still not ready. I just don’t see me using it, and the software is close enough to another model I have that I don’t really need one to test things.
Besides, I suspect I’m going to be spending some significant money soon on other (new) Amazon hardware.
They also have other Kindle accessory time-limited deals today:
Their six AM deal already sold out…and it’s a new deal every hour, it looks like.
You can look ahead and see (generically) what the deal is.
For example, the 9:00 AM (Pacific Time) deal is a charging speaker dock for the Kindle Fire. I may check back in and look at that. There are covers and sleeves…and at 2:00 PM Pacific, a deal on power adapters for all models.
This certainly might suggest new models will be announced soon. That doesn’t necessarily mean a new KDX…a large screen backlit model might (maybe, possibly, I’m not committing) be seen as moving into that niche. However, I don’t think 6″ reflective screens are going away.
I don’t think we’ll have an announcement before the August 15th end of the 40% off sale they are doing for people with an Amazon rewards Visa card.
After that? Maybe…the big press event last year was on September 28th. We may not have to wait that long for some announcement, though: there may be more than one.
Regardless, check out these deals.
