Limited time sale on Fire tablets: up to $40 off

Limited time sale on Fire tablets: up to $40 off

This isn’t a Limited Time Offer that is only available for owners of the Fire tablets with Special Offers (although those are often outstanding!).

This is available to everyone (at least in the USA)…Amazon just says it is limited, and doesn’t see to be saying how long. My guess is more than one day, since it would otherwise by a deal of the day or a Gold Box Deal.

The

is $40 off…$99 rather than $139.

Also discounted is the Kids Edition, which has a ruggedized cover included:

The six inch (screen) version is $134 instead of $149 (fifteen dollars off).

The seven inch model is $40 off…$149 instead of $189.

Not on a limited time sale, but still discounted is the model I use every day:

$199 instead of $239, so again, $40 off.

Again, I don’t know how long these prices will last, so check before you click or tap that Buy button…

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! :)

    Well, I’m just guessing, but school just got out for summer here in FL, so the back to school shopping season has started (:grin), father’s day is coming up on the 21st, and we can expect a Fire tablet product refresh in the Sept/Oct time frame.

    So they’re goosing sales taking advantage of BTS and FD, and probably starting to draw down inventory in preparation of new models on the horizon.

    One thing I think I’ve noticed: I don’t think I’ve ever seen a discount offering for the Fire 8.9″ models. I wonder why that is? Do they not make many of them — so never have overstock; or do they sell so well that discounting would be leaving money on the table?

      Thanks for writing, Edward!

      This sale doesn’t seem that atypical to me, so I’m reluctant to assign it to some specific motivation.

      As to the 8.9″…I suspect that might have to do with keeping it the top of the line model. They may not want to cheapen the perceived value of it. They may also not be ready to replace it quite yet, so they might not be pushing it so they don’t have to replenish supply as much.
