“Thank  you, FAA” 15% off Kindle, Kindle Fire today only


Not only cute, but a significant cash savings.

On the front page of Amazon, they have a nice cartoon of a Kindle Paperwhite 2, and a couple of Kindle Fires (although these are not the Kindles listed in the same splash with a discount…the illustration doesn’t match the actual discounted models), sitting on a plane.

Today only, to celebrate the FAA’s recent ruling allowing the use of PEDs (Personal Electronic Devices) basically throughout the flight, Amazon is offering a 15% discount with a special code (ThnksFAA…note that there is no “a” in the first part).

The splash has:

Those are great deals!

Remember, this is today only, you must enter the code (so don’t use 1-click), and I would guess this only applies in the USA.

I would not sit on this waiting for a better discount before the end of the year, at least on the Fires (which are new models).

    Hi Bufo! Since I had ordered my KFHDX 7″ less than 30 days ago, I thought I’d be able to get some money back since the price went down from $229 to $195. But when I contacted Amazon they said that only applies if the price decreases over a 7 day period. 😦
    I could have sworn I read somewhere that if the price goes down in a 30 day period that we get refunded the difference..
    Oh well, I still ADORE my new toy!!

      Thanks for writing, Judy!

      The logic on the thirty days is that you have thirty days to return a Kindle. You might want to call them again: if you bought it less than thirty days ago, there would have been nothing stopping you from returning it and ordering an new one today. Since it was performing as advertised, you would have been expected to pay return postage, but that would be it.

    FWIW, the discount works on any HDX7, not just the WiFi Special Offer one — according to a friend of mine who’d pre-ordered a 4g version and was able to apply the code since it’s not yet shipped.

      Yes, I only link to one “flavor” of a model, but once you get there, you can make different selections. The discount code probably applies to any of them.
