Heads up! Limited time offer at 4:00 PM Pacific

Need to get this out right away so people have a chance to get it…more later.

Amazon: Upcoming Limited-Time Special Offer on Kindle Fire: SanDisk 32GB Wireless Drive for $20. Deal starts at 7:00 PM ET/4:00 PM PT.

Update: once again, my apologies for being that brief!

These are special limited time offers, which are only available to Kindle Fire owners.

What happens is you can get a text to alert you to an upcoming deal (details in the links below). You don’t get much warning…maybe an hour.

The deal also appears on the sleep screen of your Fire, and you can find it under Offers on the homescreen (all the way at the end).

Then, you say you want to “learn more”. You’ll get to a screen with a countdown clock. As soon as the clock gets to zero, you need to click to have a chance to get it.

They have typically been selling out in seconds. In this case, I didn’t have a chance. 🙂 I was in a meeting and saw a text message on my phone. I wasn’t in a place where I can use my Fire on the wi-fi network that’s available…it’s not an appropriate use of the work network. So, I get this post out (again, on my phone), so you readers would have a shot at it.

Here is information on the program:

Again, it is too late now (as I update the post…I got the post about before the deal happened) to get it, but I am trying to track these. I believe this was the offered item:

The deal price was $20: the price I’m seeing right now is $59.99…about 2/3rds off.

Looking at the reviews, people have used this with their Kindle Fires.

It serves as additional memory. There are other wireless drives as well that can do the same thing.

As I’ve written before, I look at these LTOs (Limited Time Offers) sort of like buying a lottery ticket: I don’t expect to get one (win), but its exciting if I do! Of course, the “ticket” doesn’t cost me anything.

These LTOs are one of the best arguments for having Special Offers…and yes, a good argument for having a  Fire (at AmazonSmile)!

Did you get one? Do you have any other comment on this? Feel free to let me and my readers know by commenting on this post.

* 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! :)

      Great! Congratulations!

      If you use it with a Kindle Fire, I’d appreciate hearing how that works for you.

    Got one. And oddly, it was displayed on the “Start” screen, but it was NOT listed under the Offers tab.

      Congratulations! Thanks for letting me know.

      Odd. I’ve always seen them in both places…at least until the deal is over.
