Amazon is running a promotion that slashes $30 off of all of their Kindle Fire tablets as a “thanks to customers for voting Amazon #1 in customer satisfaction” yet again. The deal includes discounts off of the brand new Kindle Fire HDX models (both 7 and 8.9) and the regular Kindle Fire (both 7 and 8.9). The Fire HDX 7 can be had for as little as $199, while the HDX 8.9 drops to $349. The regular Kindle Fire HD drops to an insanely low $109 price, which the HD 8.9 slides in at just under $200. Not bad deals.
The HDX models are Amazon’s top tier line that can compete with almost any other tablet on the planet in terms of specs. We’re talking high-res displays (1920×1200), Snapdragon 800 processors, the newest version of Amazon’s Android skin, custom Dolby Audio, “state-of-the-art” dual-band, dual-antenna Wi-Fi, and their 24-7 Mayday video support chat.
At checkout, use the code “MAYDAY30″ to see the discount.

Weren’t interested in (or able to grab) the Moto X through early Cyber Monday madness? How about Amazon’s new Kindle Fire HDX at a similarly ridiculously low price of $179 with 16GB of storage? This is Amazon’s new high-end Kindle Fire, one that houses a high-resolution 7-inch display (1920×1200), 2.2GHz quad-core processor, new version of Fire OS, lengthy 11 hour battery life, and Mayday Button for live, video support whenever you need it at no additional cost. Its typical price is $229, so you are looking at a $50 discount for the day.
If the ultra-high end HDX isn’t exactly what you were looking for, then consider their other Kindle Fire HD, which can be had today-only for $119 with 16GB of storage. Again, that’s a $50 discount from its normal $169 price point. With the regular Fire HD, you are looking at a 7-inch display (1280×800), dual-core processor, 10 hour battery life, and access to Amazon’s services like Prime.
