During the month of January 2013 only, Amazon is giving a $50 discount on the Amazon Kindle Fire HD 8.9 inch tablet.
The only requirement to be eligible for the offer is to have an active Amazon Prime Student account. The best part of the offer is, it is not required to have a paid Amazon Prime membership. Students currently enrolled in the free 6 months of Amazon Prime for Students are also eligible for the discount. If you have a “.edu” email address, as most universities give out to students, you can register for the Amazon Student program.
The Amazon Kindle Fire HD 8.9 inch tablet is a great alternative to the more expensive iPad and iPad Mini. With Amazon’s App Store and digital media catalog, Kindle Fire users can stream movies, music, and other content on demand. Amazon Prime members, like those eligible for this Kindle Fire HD discount, also have access to Amazon’s huge selection of free streaming movies.
