Current gen Fire sale (including Kids’), limited time
When did it get to be that we got the best bargains near the holidays? People used to think that prices got raised during the holiday, and then they’d find bargains afterwards.
I think part of is that there isn’t the same problem with stock sitting in a physical store that there used to be. Yes, devices are physical stock, but that is managed so much better now than they were when I managed a brick-and-mortar bookstore. I would be sure that the cost per square foot of using an Amazon fulfillment center is a tiny fraction of what it was for my bookstore.
Amazon has some of their current generation Fire tablets on sale right now, for a “limited time”. This a public offer in the USA store: it’s not limited to those with Special Offers, and it isn’t a deal of the day. However, we don’t know when it might go away (which could be any time).
The models on sale are:
That brings this version with the ruggedized case and the special replacement policy down to as low as $159 The $30 off applies to both the 6″ and the 7″.
Now you have a mid-size Fire for as low as $114. You can also still get the six inch for $99.
Also on sale is my daily tablet (makes it sound like medicine, doesn’t it?) 😉
That’s as low as $199. It is the previous gen, and doesn’t have a rear-facing camera, but does have the current software (Fire OS 4).
There may be more sales, of course, but we are getting into that “short shipping season”, and there may be more unavailabilities. I’d say this sale is particularly good on the new Kids’ edition…that’s going to be a hot item this year, and a great gift. For me, that’s particularly true for elementary school kids…that’s more of the market than for older kids.
I’ll keep my eye open for more bargains, though!

* 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.
