Prime Day Deal – Kindle Fire

Get this Amazon Prime Day Deal on a Kindle Fire$49.99, 38% off the regular price of $79.99.

I have one and I use it almost daily. It’s a fabulous device for consuming media. I watch Netflix, Amazon Prime and read comics from Marvel Digital Unlimited. The latter I had to side-load but that’s the nice thing about the Fire, it’s Android, so if there’s an app not in Amazon’s app store, you can probably get it from Google Play. Anyway, for fifty bucks? Great deal. Go buy.

Amazon Prime Day

It’s Amazon Prime Day, baby!

What the hell is Prime Day, you say?

Why, it’s a way to save money!

Why is it called Prime Day?

Because in order to get the deals from Amazon, you have to be an Amazon Prime member.

See? This is how they getcha.

That said, Amazon Prime is a pretty good deal. You get free 2-day shipping and access to a giant library of video. Basically it’s like Netflix but with Amazon. And Amazon has different shows in some cases, especially their own content, so if you want to be one of the cool kids and watch, like, everything, you need Amazon Prime.

Among the deals to be had:

Shop Amazon Devices – Prime Day All New Fire Tablet starting $29.99

That’s a sweet deal on an Amazon Fire. 30 bucks. You can watch video, read books and digital comics, and play with apps. Imagine getting an iPad for 30 dollars. Now forget about that because it’s not going to happen. But an Amazon Fire tablet for 30 dollars, that you could get, at least on… PRIME DAY.

So go check out what’s on offer. Here are a few links to get you started.
