In honor of being ranked #1 in customer satisfaction during the holiday shopping season for the 9th year in a row by the ForeSee Experience Index, Amazon has announced it is knocking $30 off all Kindle Fire tablets until 11:59 p.m. Pacific time, January 11th. That would knock the base model 7” Kindle Fire HD down to $109, the 7” HDX (with the new Mayday Button) or the 8.9” HD down to $199, and the 8.9” HDX down to $349. Not bad pricing, all in all, if that’s what you’re looking for in a tablet.

To take advantage of the offer, enter the coupon code MAYDAY30 at checkout.

I wonder if anyone will ever knock Amazon out of that top slot. A lot of people I talk to clutch at Amazon during the holiday season like drowning men clutch at life preservers—they can get exactly what they want at a good price without having to brave the madding crowds.


  1. Perfect timing! I was in the process of getting a 7″ HDX as an Army basic training graduation gift. Nice to have the $30 off!
