Have a Fire? One of those limited time deals at 4:00 PM Pacific: Keurig for $20 (84% off)

I don’t always see these limited time deals, but they are really incredible deals (and may sell out in seconds).

You must have a Kindle Fire, and you’ll see the link on your “screen saver” or by going to Offers from the homescreen.

I’m hoping some of you see this and manage to snag one. This is a fancy coffee maker (I know I’m simplifying)…should be a great gift!

Here is information on the program:

Limited Time Special Offers only on Kindle Fire
Limited Time Special Offers only on Kindle Fire at AmazonSmile

* I am linking to the same thing at the regular Amazon site, and at AmazonSmile. When you shop at AmazonSmile, half a percent of your purchase price on eligible items goes to a non-profit you choose. It will feel just like shopping at Amazon: you’ll be using your same account. The one thing for you that is different is that you pick a non-profit the first time you go (which you can change whenever you want)…and the good feeling you’ll get. :) Shop ’til you help! :)

    Woo hoo, I got one! I just happened to be using the 7″ Fire HDX to check mail while sitting in the recliner watching TV. It went dark and when I woke it up this deal was 15 1/2 minutes from starting. I sat and watched the clock count down and hit the button the minute I was able. Within about 30 seconds they were all gone but I got mine. What a great deal. The coffee costs more than what I paid total. Loyal Kindle Paperwhite and Kindle Fire HDX owner and Prime Member. Why would anyone opt out of the ads when they are only on the lock screen?

    Lovely Christmas present for myself.

      Thanks for writing, Karen!

      Great! I’m glad one of my readers got one. I did watch the countdown clock, and did tap it as soon as I could…but I didn’t get one. That’s fine, we got the Paperwhite earlier…congratulations to those who did get it!

    I tried and they sold out instantly. That is not a shame. I am appreciative that they gave me a chance at them. What is a shame? That after it was all over I clicked on ‘more at regular price’ and saw folks being unreasonable. I noticed something like twenty 4 or 5 stars and 175 one star reviews. I looked at the last 4 or 5 and they all were complaining about the lightning deal claiming it was a scam. One person said (paraphrase) “sure Amazon. You sold out of the cheap ones but you have plenty of full price ones huh?” Another person and another paraphrase was “How could they sell out in under a second? What a scam!”

    Evidently the first one did not see where it said limit 5,000. Which I must admit and am ashamed to do so that the first deal (the Madden for $5) I thought that was their way of making a joke saying we could only buy more than 5,000. Yeah, it was a moment where my brain was not working properly LOL. I got two Maddens and so far have gotten every deal except this one and the kindle. Both sold out instantly. I am proof this is not a scam and what folks don’t realize is I would not doubt if there were 100,000 people waiting to hit add to cart. As time goes on thanx to your blog and the text option where they inform you in advance I think it will get very difficult to get any of these in the future.

    Bottom line, never leave a one star review because you hate the company or think they did you wrong. That has nothing to do with the product and these reviews are completely unfair and if I were Bezo’s I would delete every one of them.

      I’m quite bemused by people who think it is a scam somehow. No one is disadvantaged by not getting one…they aren’t taking your money. Of course, they announced that there was a limited supply, and it seems completely reasonable to me that more than 5,000 people might try to get it as soon as it becomes available. I tried, and didn’t get one…but I didn’t lose anything by that.

      Rating something as 1-star in that situation seems spiteful to me…the manufacturer of the product may not have had anything to do with Amazon’s promotion…and gee, if it was only a 1-star device, wouldn’t you be happy you didn’t get one?😉

      • Phink Says:

        That’s right Bufo. If I were Keurig I might contact Amazon and ask them not to do this with my products in the future because someone might log onto the site next week and see hundreds of one star reviews and without looking at the comments just x out and look for a competitors product. In situations such as these I always thought it’d be poetic justice (but would never happen) if Amazon held a press conference and said “ok, we just made 5,000 people very happy but unfortunately, there are a lot of people who are not happy for them but instead are mad they are not one of them. Therefore we will never do this again so everybody loses. Except Amazon because we will no longer lose a hundred thousand dollars when we do these promotions.”

        Being an X manager of not a book store LOL, but a retail store, I can tell you that they do lose money on lots of products sometimes. Folks always think the company makes money on every product but that is not the case. The store I work in now (just a flunky) our average margin is 35%. I betcha Amazon is loosing big money on these promotions.

    I forgot. I did get one kindle. I gave it away for Christmas. So, I have only lost out on one item. My wife and I both have accounts and with the Kindle I could not get one but she did. With this both of us struck out.

    I have given in and added special offers to my Fire. Looks like I’ve missed out on some good ones.

    I tried desperately, but didn’t get one. I was ok that they sold out fast, though I literally hit buy as soon as it hit the right time. It kept saying there was a problem with my cart. My issue was that when I went back 30 min later it said there was no time left and only 87% were claimed. I would have loved that deal!

    • Bufo Calvin Says:

      Thanks for writing, Alison!

      Hm…sounds like a problem with the system refreshing. I can tell you, I first saw 22% claimed…but then I saw 100% claimed quite quickly. I think part of it is probably due to the network speed where you are. I was on a different network than usual, and probably not as fast.
