Amazon Offering $40 Credit with Kindle Fire Purchase (Update)

Amazon is holding a limited-time offer on Kindle Fire tablets until Wednesday night. If you purchase a Kindle Fire tablet before Wednesday night, you’ll $40 in “digital content credit” that’s good for buying apps, games, movies, TV shows, music, Kindle ebooks, etc. To take advantage of the deal, all you have to do is enter KINDLE40 at checkout.

UPDATE: According to Amazon Customer Service, this deal was sent as an invite only to certain Amazon customers and will only work when these chosen customers sign into their Amazon accounts. The deal won’t work for everyone, unfortunately (Thanks, Ryan).

In order to get the deal, you have to buy your Kindle Fire tablet using the code above by 11:59 pm PT on November 13, and you must redeem your digital content credit by 11:59 pm PT on March 31, 2014. Usually, store credit doesn’t expire, but it seems this is where the biggest caveat is with this particular deal. Obviously, March of next year is a ways off, and most users could go through $40 worth of credit in a heart beat, but if you’re the kind of user who likes to save your credit until something good comes along, it’ll be important to keep that expiration date in mind.

Essentially, with this deal, it means that you can get the entry-level Kindle Fire HD 7-inch tablet for a mere $100, with the $40 you save simply being earmarked for Amazon’s digital content catalog. The Kindle Fire HDX 7-inch slate would cost only $190, while the 8.9-inch model would start at $340, technically.

Of course, you can’t beat the price of $100 for a 7-inch tablet, and it’s especially a good buy if you’re deep into Amazon’s ecosystem, which the Kindle Fire tablets essentially live off of, and you really have to be a die-hard Amazon user if you want to get your money’s worth. This is why the Nexus 7 is still the best Android tablet around, but $100 for the Kindle Fire HD is unbeatable; get it while the deal lasts.

Sadly, the $40 credit can’t be used to buy merchandise from Amazon’s marketplace, and it only applies to digital content, but if you’re buying your first Kindle Fire tablet, an extra $40 to spend on digital content will help get you started filling up your tablet with apps, movies, music, ebooks and more.

    That code isn’t working for me, It just says that that code can’t be applied to my order, I tried ordering a 7 inch Kindle Fire HDX.

    Might want to check a little more thoroughly into this, this code does not work. I tried to apply it to the Kindle Fire HD and it cannot be applied.

    It’s not supposed to be applied to your Kindle purchase. Once you’ve bought the Kindle, you then just get a separate $40 credit for things you’ll *buy* with the Kindle.

    Jon Cog, how would a person know for sure they could get that deal. If it doesn’t show up in the cart I sure wouldn’t feel confident that I was going to get it.

    Call kindle customer service and tell them what’s going on and they will take $40 off at end.
