You can give up to 5 family & friends a 15% discount on Kindle Fire
And the discounts just keep on coming!
Here’s the latest from Amazon on the
- Kindle Fire HDX 7″, HDX Display, Wi-Fi
- at AmazonSmile…benefit a non-profit of your choice by shopping*
You can have a 15% off code sent to up to five e-mail addresses (your “friends and family”).
In this case, I think it is worth reproducing the terms and conditions:
- You are only eligible to refer people to receive this discount if you received an email from Amazon.com notifying you of the promotion, or if you were directed to this page after clicking on the “Exclusive Offer: Family & Friends Save 15% on Kindle Fire” promotion on the Amazon.com home page while signed in to your Amazon account.
- Limit five referrals per customer and account.
- In event of multiple submissions of a referral form by a customer, only the latest submission will be considered eligible for the promotion.
- You cannot refer yourself.
- The coupon code will only be sent to email addresses that are associated with an Amazon.com account and have not opted out of receiving marketing emails from Amazon.com.
- Referrals must be submitted by December 21, 2013 at 11:59PM (PST).
- Discount applies to one new Kindle Fire HDX 7″ with Wi-Fi or Kindle Fire HD 16GB device sold and shipped by Amazon Digital Services.
- Offer valid for customers located and with billing addresses in the United States.
- Amazon reserves the right to modify or cancel the offer at any time.
- Offer is non-transferable, may not be resold, and may not be combined with other offers.
- Void where prohibited.
Note that there are quite a few significant restrictions (not that this doesn’t make it a great thing to do!). You have to know the e-mail address associated with their Amazon account. In a way, though, that’s a good thing…you aren’t opening people up to new spam (unsolicited commercial e-mail). Amazon already has this information. It also may not even be available you to do. I think you’ll be able to find that out when you go to
You also can’t refer yourself. 😉 I assume you could send the code to someone who then bought you a Fire with it, though.
You’ve got to do this in the next few days (by the 21st…Saturday).
The recipient of the code could save quite a bit of money…on the least expensive KFHDX, they’d save over $30.

I really like trivia, but it often isn’t that well done. I’ve read a bit of this, and do like it…it’s worth noting that Adams Media is a traditional publisher. That’s not always an advantage, of course, but it tends to mean that production quality is reliable.
This one could make a great “little gift”. Can you do Kindle store books as little gifts at the holidays? Absolutely! I’m doing that this year. You just need an e-mail address for the person (it doesn’t have to be the address associated with their Amazon account, which the offer at the top of this post does need). You can choose to have it delivered on the day you want…and you can pick a name for it to say as the gift giver (it doesn’t have to say your name there).
I have to say, I haven’t read all of it, so I can’t be sure that it is “safe for work” or appropriate for kids (or…let’s say, sensitive adults), but my guess is that it is okay.
* 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!
