Kindle Fire 8.9″ HD 4G 32GB from QVC for $279.95
Thanks to regular reader and commenter Lady Galaxy for the heads-up on this!
QVC (Quality, Value, Convenience) has last year’s Kindle Fire HD 8.9″ with 4G and 32GB of memory for $249.95.
I don’t know where QVC gets their retail value listings…this one says $959.99, and I can’t see any configuration that would get you there.
However, this is still a great deal! If it has Special Offers on it, I would expect this model to sell for $399…so this is about $150 off.
This one does not have the latest generation of the operating system, so for one thing, no Mayday button (the free on screen tech help). However, it does have an HDMI out jack, which a lot of people want. With a cable (which you would buy separately), that lets you connect your Fire to your TV (if it has an HDMI in…most modern TVs do).
I had one like this that was stolen in a home break-in. I was using it as my primary tablet for quite a while, and using it to run TV in one room. I do llike my HDX better (it’s lighter, for one thing…it also speech-to-text dictation so you can talk and it types…that’s a great feature on a tablet), but this is a good device and a good price on it.
Thanks again to Lady Galaxy for the heads-up!
Update: bonus deal!
is any of 25 movie-related titles for $1.99 each. There are some great titles here, and they definitely might make good gifts! The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe…The Pianist…Running with Scissors: there are many kinds of movies, and many kinds of books here.
