Amazon definitely has a sense of humor, and they just announced that they are using the new FAA rules to allow portable electronic devices to remain in use during takeoff and landing as a reason to unload more Kindle Fire devices at a 15% discount using the promotional code ThnksFAA at checkout.
People who purchase certain Kindle Fire devices today only -- November 4, 2013 – can save 15% on a Kindle, Kindle Fire HD 7", or Kindle Fire HDX 7" with that cute ThnksFAA promotional code that’s obviously shorthand for “Thanks, FAA!”
So that’s a pretty cheap deal, especially when you think of taking 15% off the $69 Kindle, especially.
"We've been fighting for our customers on this issue for years, and we are thrilled by the FAA's recent decision--this is a big win for customers. Delta and JetBlue have already started flights with the new rules--we're excited to see which airlines are next," said Drew Herdener, Vice President, Amazon.
"To say thank you, for one day only we're offering 15% off Kindle Fire HD, Kindle Fire HDX 7", and the $69 Kindle--happy flying!"
Amazon will surely unload a ton of Kindle devices today, and hopefully continue selling a boatload of Kindle edition books via the electronic readers that people have grown to love so much.
