Heads up! Kindle Fire limited time offer at 1:45 PM Pacific

Heads up! Kindle Fire limited time offer at 1:45 PM Pacific

This is one of those super limited time offers. The text I got just said “Barbie RV” for $10. I checked at the Amazon site: I assume it is one that I’m seeing which is normally $67.49. I’m not linking to it, because going to it on Amazon’s website is not going to be how you get the deal, and I don’t want to confuse people.

You must have a Kindle Fire, and you’ll see the link on your “screen saver” or by going to Offers from the homescreen. There will be a “Learn more” link or something like that once it shows up. That will have a countdown clock. Hover over that clock, and click it as soon as you can. If you have any control over the network you are using, I think that matters…faster is better. 🙂

I’m hoping some of you see this and manage to snag one. The history on these has been that they sell out in seconds. Again, I would approach this like buying a lottery ticket: the odds that you are going to “win” are quite small, but I think it is fun to try. 🙂

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! :)

      Thanks for writing, Kim!

      That’s great! Hope I helped. 🙂

      They didn’t have a number limit listed…but apparently, the non-discounted price was $89.99, so you got quite a deal!

    I got the heads up text then came here to see if you had it posted, they went so fast!

    Hi Bufo! Did you notice that when you go to “Videos” from your Kindle Fire HDX 7’s home screen, the menu now has two additional options: Prime TV shows to download and Prime movies to download. It’s not a complete list of all videos that can be downloaded but it’s a good start!

      Thanks for writing, Judy!

      Interesting! I hadn’t noticed. You can also do a dropdown at the top, choose “Filter”, and find just ones with Closed Captioning and/or X-Ray.

      I’m curious: why do you think it isn’t all of them?

      • Judy Schechter Says:

        I know the list of Prime tv shows to download doesn’t show all possible shows because I have some shows in my watch list that are downloadable but don’t appear there, such as Nova and America’s Next Top Model.

        Thanks for writing, Judy!

        That’s a good reason. 🙂
