Kindle/Fire Labor Day sales on devices and content!

Kindle/Fire Labor Day sales on devices and content!

Done with all that yucky outdoor stuff? Ready to escape that solar radiation and get online…for some deals?

Just kidding…we spent a couple of hours at the dog park today ourselves. Of course, we got there at 6:00 AM, so it wasn’t sunny, but still…we were outside. ūüėČ

There’s a reason I have a t-shirt that¬†says, “Keep Out of Direct Sunlight”.

And, you know, you could shop for these Amazon bargains outside on your phone, or…never mind, let’s just get to the deals!

Amazon Devices

There are 11 devices shown at the USA

Amazon Device Sale (at AmazonSmile: benefit a non-profit of your choice by shopping*)

  • Amazon Tap (at AmazonSmile*) $99.99 instead of $129.99 ($30 off): I use this every workday. It’s the portable version of the Amazon Echo, and I take it to work with me. I use it for Prime music, among other things. I do like it a lot: the big difference between this and the regular Echo is that it can run on battery for hours…but that also means you need to push a button to talk to it (so it doesn’t run down the battery always listening to you like the Echo while plugged into power). If someone comes to visit, we’ll let them use this one in the guest bedroom, so they can turn our household lights on and off, for one thing
  • Amazon Fire TV (at AmazonSmile*) $84.99 instead of $99.99 ($15 off). This is our primary video provider in our house…we use it to stream Hulu, Netflix, and Prime Video, in addition to using it for news apps, YouTube and more
  • Fire TV Stick with Voice Remote (at AmazonSmile*) $34.99 versus $39.99 without voice remote, $44.99 versus $49.99 with voice remote. We use this in our bedroom, and it’s the least expensive option to get Alexa.¬† You can use the Alexa app on a SmartPhone to use Alexa on a Fire TV device (Stick or not)without the voice remote
  • Certified Refurbished Fire TV Stick with Voice Remote $39.99 versus $44.99
  • Fire HDX 8.9 64GB LTE $479.99 versus $579.99 ($100 off)
  • Fire HDX 8.9 32GB LTE $429.99 versus $529.99 ($100 off)
  • Amazon Fire TV + HD Antenna Bundle $94.99 versus $131.47
  • Fire HD6 $69.99 versus $99.99
  • Refurbished Amazon Echo $149.99 versus 170.99 | I’ve always though refurbished Amazon devices were a good deal, if you want to save every penny

These are good deals. Is it possible there are next generation devices being released soon? Yes, that’s likely during September…

Kindle Content


Kindle Daily Deal (at AmazonSmile…benefit a non-profit of your choice by shopping*)

is quite impressive, and one they do from time to time. It’s “Up to 85% off over 50 business & investing Kindle books”, and there are many really interesting books, even if you aren’t heavily into business. A quick sampling:

  • The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People by Stephen R. Covey
  • Flash Boys by Michael Lewis
  • #GIRLBOSS by Sophia Amoruso
  • Drive: The Surprising Truth About What Motivates Us Daniel H. Pink
  • The Adventure of English: The Biography of a Language Melvyn Bragg

*¬†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‚Äôll 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)‚Ķand the good feeling you‚Äôll get.¬†:)¬†Shop ‚Äôtil you help!¬†:)¬†By the way, it‚Äôs been interesting lately to see Amazon remind me to ‚Äústart at AmazonSmile‚ÄĚ 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.
