Amazon is celebrating. And as a part of the celebration it is offering customers $30 off the price of a Kindle Fire Tablet. To take advantage of the offer you enter the code MAYDAY30 at checkout and watch your Kindle Fire price drop $30. The offer is listed as “for a limited time” so who knows how long it will last. So, if you were eyeing a Kindle Fire Tablet, this might be your chance to pick one up and save a little. What’s the celebration about? Amazon was named #1 in customer satisfaction by the ForeSee Experience Index: US Retail Edition.
For their study, customer experience analytics firm ForeSee collected more than 67,600 surveys between November 29, 2013, and December 17, 2013, asking consumers to rate their satisfaction with the top 100 retailers. ForeSee ranked Amazon highest in overall customer satisfaction in the survey with a score of 90—the highest ever recorded by the firm. In addition, ForeSee found that customers ranked Amazon highest in satisfaction with the online experience and also put Amazon significantly out front when it came to the mobile shopping experience.
Although Amazon’s doesn’t release specific sales figures for the Kindle Fire Tablets they appear to sell well, at least during the holiday season when discounts are abundant. This post holiday sale follows several other promotions including an interest free pay over time purchase plan Amazon ran during the holidays. The MAYDAY30 code is a clever reminder of the Mayday help feature available on some models of the Kindle Fire Tablets, where users can get online help quickly with the touch of the Mayday button.
Kindle Fire Tablets range in price from $139 for the Kindle Fire HD with only 8GB of storage to $479 for the 8.9 inch Kindle Fire HDX model with 64Gb of storage and an LTE radio, so there is a range to choose from.
