Heads up! Limited time deal on MicroSOFT memory card for $5 at 3 o’clock Pacific

Heads up! Limited time deal on 32GB MicroSOFT memory card for $5 at 3 o’clock Pacific

I have limited resources right now so I need to be brief. If you have a Kindle Fire check the special offers for a deal that starts at 3 o’clock p.m. Pacific on a memory card. I will add links to this post later.

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:

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! :)

    Hi, Bufo,
    I managed to get one. It didn’t sell out in seconds, though. I happened to look at the ad about 20 minutes after it was offered, and it was at 83%. It said there were 39 minutes left to go, so it probably did sell out before the time was up. So don’t give up if you can’t get to it immediately unless it’s something extremely popular like a $19 Paperwhite.🙂

      Thanks for writing, D.!

      Great!

      It varies a lot. They started out with a number of units available on this one…

    I got one too, but strangely, there was no countdown clock. When I tapped on “learn more” I was taken to the regular product page, which showed the normal price of approx. $18 (list is something like $39). Then at precisely 6:00 ET the screen switched to the $5 price with a 1-hr. countdown, similar to what you see on Gold Box deals. Has Amazon changed the procedure for these LTO’s? At any rate, I’m happy, I got one, and it will be here Tuesday. Bufo, you’re absolutely right that owning a Special Offers Kindle (of any variety) is definitely worthwhile.

      Well, I don’t think it’s been consistent…but I can say, I did have the countdown clock on my KFHDX7.

      Glad you got one!
