$30 off Kindle HDX in “Game On” promotion

Good through tomorrow (January 21st), you can get $30 off the Kindle Fire HDX 7″, bringing it to under $200:

Kindle Fire HDX 7″ (at AmazonSmile: benefit a non-profit of your choice by shopping*)

Here are the details:

Enter promotional code GameOn30 at checkout.

Limit one discount per customer, while supplies last. U.S. customers only. Discount valid on Kindle Fire HDX devices sold and shipped by Amazon Digital Services. It does not apply to the same products sold by other sellers. Amazon reserves the right to cancel the promotion at any time. Promo code may not be combined with other offers. Offer is non-transferable and may not be resold. Shipping charges may apply to discounted and free promotional items. If you return items purchased using a promo code, we will subtract the value of the discount from your return credit. Offer expires January 21, 11:59 PM PST. Offer not valid with 1-Click ordering. Void where prohibited.

Amazon seems to have decided it is worth a lot to get people to buy a Kindle Fire, which makes sense, if it gets them to become regular Prime members (after the 30 day free trial) and statistically, spend a lot more money.

It does seem…interesting to suggest that you would get a KFHDX because of the Superbowl, but that seems to be the implication.

I would guess we could expect Mothers’ Day, and Fathers’ Day/Graduation (“Dads & Grads”) promotions as well.

Hm…may one for the Oscars, coming March 2nd. That one would make a lot of sense!

* 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! :)

    You’re forgetting Amazon is in Seattle and we here in Seattle are really,really happy the Seahawks are going to the Superbowl. Everyone is celebrating. Amazon probably can’t refer to that without an NFL deal but trust me, it’s about the Hawks.

      Thanks for writing!

      excellent point! I am in the San Francisco Bay Area and we might be feeling a tiny bit different this morning. 😉

      it makes sense that it is just general celebration and not an endorsement of using the Fire to watch the game
