Amazon is now offering payment plans for its Kindle Fire HDX 7-inch tablets and 8.9-inch tablets. These plans allow you to pay 25% of the price of the tablet upfront, plus shipping and tax, and then pay the rest of it in three more payments each 90 days apart, giving you a total of 270 days before you have to pay it off completely. There is no credit check and no interest or finance fees, making this a pretty good deal for those who would like to spread out the payment for their tablet.
The deal runs until 11:59PM December 24th, 2013, and is only available to American residents who have had an Amazon account for at least two years, except for residents of Florida or Washington D.C. If you fail to make all of the payments on your tablet, Amazon says that it reserves the right to deregister your device from your Amazon account, blocking you from accessing any Amazon content on it, and to suspend or terminate your Amazon account.
The Kindle Fire HDX tablets start at $229 for the 7-inch and $379 for the 8.9-inch. We have reviewed the 7-inch model here at MakeUseOf and quite liked it. It comes with many new features to set it apart from the still-available $139 Kindle Fire HD, like a 1920×1200 screen, 2.2Ghz quad-core processor, 2GB of RAM, and “Mayday”, which is Amazon’s 24/7 customer support for the HDX tablets.
What do you think of Amazon’s new payment plans? Is it enough to convince you to get a Kindle Fire HDX this holiday season?
