It looks like Amazon didn’t sell enough Kindle Fire HD tablets on Monday, because they’re running the sale again – with a twist. This time around the retail behemoth is placing all current models of the Kindle Fire tablet on sale, and that includes the second gen Kindle Fire.
All the tablets have a decent discount, with prices ranging from $20 to $50 off, but there is a catch. You have to be signed up for the Amazon Mom membership program. This program is free to Amazon Prime members, but it does require that you hand over some personal info. Still, that might be annoying but it is a small price to pay for a discount. You can always provide fake details (I don’t really have 366 kids).
You’ll need to enter the code FireMoms before you checkout or you won’t get the discount. Or at least that code is supposed to reduce the price; it didn’t work for me. Caveat Emptor.
Some of my readers commented on Monday that that sale was a sign the larger KFHD was a bust. After all, why else would it be on sale?
I disagreed at the time because a single sale does not mean much beyond a sale; for example the Kindle DX had its own one-day sale last year and yet that ereader stuck around for another 8 or 9 months. But now that Amazon has decided to have a second sale the same week as the first, I think I might change my mind.
