Heads up! Limited time deal on videogame at 1 o’clock Pacific
I am on my phone so I need to be brief. If you have a Kindle Fire check the special offers for a deal that starts at 1 o’clock p.m. Pacific on a soccer videogame.
This one was the XBOX 360 version (I think) of the FIFA 14 videogame…currently sold by Amazon for $39.96 (but list priced at $59.99), it was $14…about 77% off (if I have the right figures).
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 (about half an hour in this case).
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 wasn’t in a place where I had a wi-fi connection…although this is one I would have liked to have gotten to have to give as a gift at the holidays.
Here is information on the program:
- Limited Time Special Offers only on Kindle Fire
- Limited Time Special Offers only on Kindle Fire at AmazonSmile…benefit a non-profit of your choice by shopping*
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.
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!
