Today: 50% off 3rd Gen HDXs with 4G
This is a Gold Box Deal (GBD) so it should only be good today (although there may be other deals later on).
This is a good one!
You can get a Kindle HDX 7″ (that’s what I use every day) for $139…the current gen is $199!
This one comes with 4G (another way to connect to the internet besides using wi-fi) which would require a dataplan that you would pay for monthly, but let me be clear:
You do not need to get the dataplan!
I don’t currently have a Fire HDX with 4G: I did, but just didn’t find it worthwhile and didn’t renew after the plan after the first year.
Where I live (in the San Francisco Bay Area), there’s plenty of wi-fi…if you live in a rural area, that might not be the case, and you might be happy to pay for a monthly plan.
I consider this one of the best deals Amazon has offered on Fire tablets to the general public (as opposed to something like a Limited Time Special Offer…although this could run out and is only for today).
Note that this has the current version of the operating system: you do have Mayday (the onscreen tech help), you can download some Prime videos.
Bottom line: if you’ve been thinking about a Fire tablet, especially as a gift (the 4G is a nice option in a gift…they can just use wi-fi, if they want, but they can choose. They may move somewhere in the future with 4G), this is an excellent opportunity.

* 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! By the way, it’s been interesting lately to see Amazon remind me to “start at AmazonSmile” if I check a link on the original Amazon site. I do buy from AmazonSmile, but I have a lot of stored links I use to check for things.
