Part of the Amazon Cyber Monday 2013 deals week includes a major Kindle Fire HD sale at the website. The deal was launched as of early Monday morning on the website and gives shoppers a way to pick up the HD or HDX 7-inch tablets if they missed out on them during last week's sales at stores and online.
A Dec. 2 report from The Next Web states that today’s sale offers a 20% discount on the Kindle Fire HDX. The new tablet is the follow-up to last year’s improved Kindle Fire HD, and is available today only at a price of $179, which is $50 off the normal $229 price tag. It features a “perfect-color HDX display,” ultra-fast processor and the “exclusive ‘Mayday’ button.” The “Mayday” feature allows for tablet owners to make a customer support video chat connection with Amazon help staff in case of any issues with their device, or problems they need solved on the tablet. The tablet also features multimedia options such as streaming video, music and reading eBooks as well as productivity functions, email and web surfing.
In addition to the HDX being on sale, so was the 7-inch version of the Kindle Fire HD 16GB with Wi-FI. However, as of this report that particular model of the tablet has sold out with the $50 off deal. That leaves the Fire HDX as the only model on sale for today. No other tablets are listed at $50 off, as of this report, and it appears this HDX deal is going to move just as fast. That particular model of the tablet launched just a few months ago on the website and has been among the "most wished for" items on the site as well as one of the top sellers along with the HD model.
Amazon’s Cyber Monday 2013 sale will last for an entire week. Many online retailers started sales as early as Saturday this past weekend to get a jump on their competition. Amazon is offering daily deals such as today’s HDX deal, as well as the “Lightning Deals” which last for an hour or until quantities are sold out. Some of the deals shown as of this report were Invicta Pro Diver watches for under $70, 50% off Top Toys from Mattel and Fisher Price, and upcoming deals on Kate Spade New York Women’s Katnis Pumps, as well as a Sterling Silver Channel-Set Diamond Hoop Earrings set.
