 Free Fire tablet with 6 month subscription to Texture

Way back in 2007 when the Kindle was first released (at a price of about $400), people were wondering if Amazon would give away a Kindle with some kind of purchase of books.

Well, this current promotion is a bit similar, although there have been significant changes since. This limited time offer gets you a

What’s Texture?

It’s primarily an all you can read magazine service, with over 175 magazines, including many of the best known ones (People, Entertainment Weekly, Forbes, Essence, Rolling Stone, Vegetarian Times…).

These are not going to work on a Kindle EBR (E-Book Reader), but would work on the Fire tablet you would get with it.

Six months is $89.95…if you don’t cancel, there will be an automatic renewal.

Seems like a nice thing to have around…even if you aren’t supplying a doctor’s waiting room. 😉

Here’s Amazon’s top level summary of the deal:

To receive the Buy Texture Premium Subscription, Get One Free Fire 7” Tablet with Special Offers (8 GB or 16 GB) offer, follow the instructions below:

  • Purchase and activate a qualifying 6-month subscription to Texture Premium on
  • If you do not cancel your 6-month Texture Premium subscription in the 7 day period following your purchase, you will receive a promotional code via email directly from Texture approximately 8 days after your purchase. Customers who cancel their subscriptions within 7 days of purchase are not eligible to receive the promotional code. Important: You must have activated your subscription to receive your promotional code.
  • Add a Fire 7″ tablet with Special Offers (either 8 GB or 16 GB) to your order by selecting “1” in the “Qty” dropdown on the product information page when adding to your Shopping Cart. Select options on the configuration page and click “Add to Cart.” Add your promotional code at checkout and a discount in the amount of one free Fire tablet with Special Offers will be applied.

This is while supplies last, and I don’t know how long the deal will be available. I’m guessing this is USA only.

Interestingly, Amazon isn’t doing the deal, Texture is. So, this doesn’t suggest a free Kindle with a

six month subscription…but if it does well, it might inspire Amazon. 🙂

If you’ve thought about trying a tablet or e-Magazines, this is an opportunity for you. If you just want another tablet, maybe for a family member, this works for that, too.  😉

* 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.

    I just discovered Texture- a great app for mag subs. Can’t get the app from amz on my iPad but can independently. $15 per month to read lots of mags. Can save $ by canceling my subs to new Yorker,etc. Thanks. Looks like the fire is the low resolution one. And small. Don’t know how I would like it after using an ipad.

      Thanks for writing, alanchurch!

      You wouldn’t like it as well. 🙂 The least expensive Fire looks a bit muddy to me, like I am viewing it underwater. It’s not bad for most purposes…I considerate a serviceable device. However, with magazines, I often find myself enlarging images and examining them in detail…you would notice the difference there.
