Just two days before Christmas, it is the time for crazy holiday rush shopping. Online, Amazon.com is offering a $30 markdown on the price tag of its new Kindle Fire HDX tablets. However, the Internet-based retailer is advising its customers to act promptly because the special offer only runs within a limited period.
The company is offering the special discount until 8:59 Eastern time today (December 23). That means that online shoppers still have a few hours left to take advantage of this limited offer. Anyone interested to purchase a unit of the tablet should immediately log in to the online retailer’s Website.
Special code for the promo
To avail of the promo, one has to enter a special promotional code. It is ‘SANTAHDX.’ That code has to be encoded after selecting the new 7-inch Kindle Fire HDX or 8.9-inch Kindle Fire HDX, which are now sold at $229 and $379, respectively.
It should be noted that the offer is only effective for the Wi-Fi only, 16GB versions of both slates. Both 7-inch and 8.9-inch tablets come with the option for 4G LTE connectivity and wireless plans from Verizon or AT&T. There are also 32GB and 64GB versions that are on board, but those units could be very limited in number.
Shopping for new Kindle tablets
It is also advisable to choose the one-day shipping upon checkout when placing an order for the discounted Kindle tablets. This is because Amazon is running another offer: it is rolling out one-day shipping for free but only through a limited period as well. It is hard to tell whether you could still avail of that shipping offer by now but you could try.
As usual, Amazon has come out with a notice. It reiterated that all product prices as well as availability could be subject to change even without further notice. This may apply to the special discount on Kindle Fire HDX deals and on all other Kindle discounts being offered today.
Amazon is feeling generous to online shoppers this season. Earlier this month, the company rolled out a special payment plan targeting generous gift buyers and givers who are planning to buy and give away Kindle Fire HDX tablets for the holidays. The online retailer also had several offers during the Black Friday and Cyber Monday shopping events last month.
