Amazon Discounts Kindle Fire HD 8.9 By $50 For Students [Updates]

Ads by Google

One of the most popular Android tablets is the Kindle Fire, and with good reason. It’s a fantastic device and it comes with a very reasonable price tag when compared to the competition. Students can get an even better deal on the device for the month of January, as Amazon has dropped the price on the Kindle Fire HD 8.9 by $50. This brings the price of Amazon’s top-of-the-line tablet down to as low as $249.

The price will vary depending on which model of the tablet students choose. The highest model, which is the 64GB version with 4G LTE data normally comes in at $599, but with the discount for students, it will drop to $549. This is definitely a great deal for students looking to get a new tablet for the upcoming semester at university, or just a student looking for something fun to kill some time between study sessions and school work.

There are some caveats to be able to get the discount. First, the deal is only available to students in the United States. In addition, students will need to have an Amazon Prime account for students. Students can get a free trial of the service for 6 months, and after that, it costs $39 for year, which is half the price of Prime for regular users. Student Prime accounts still get the benefits of free 2-day shipping.

To sign up for the Prime for students, you will need a valid .edu email address to prove that you actually attend a university.

If you meet the requirements, this is a great time to snag yourself a tablet at a steep discount. You have the entirety of January to decide if you want to jump on the deal and take advantage of the savings.
