Every Kindle Fire Is on Sale Today—If You're a Mom

Illustration for article titled Every Kindle Fire Is on Sale Today—If Youre a Mom

On Monday, Amazon slashed prices on its 8.9-inch Kindle Fire tablets. If you missed that sale, you're in luck; it's back today, and this time applies to all Kindle Fire models. Oh, except this time you've got to be a mom.

The sale, limited to Amazon Mom members who also have Amazon Prime, includes $20 off a Kindle Fire, $25 off the 7-inch Kindle Fire HD, and that same $50 off its 8.9-inch big brother. It's a great deal all around, especially considering how much value these products represent in the first place.


For the uninitiated, Amazon Mom is a maternally focused Amazon membership that offers steep discounts on Subscribe & Save for diapers and wipes and other mom things. Most important to you, though, is that it's free to join, and you don't really have to be a mom.

Is Amazon just in the spirit of holiday giving? Maybe, but there are likely other forces at work here. Amazon had expected Monday's 8.9-inch Kindle Fire HD sale to clear out significant inventory; that it's running the same promotion (albeit on a smaller scale) suggests that perhaps that goal wasn't met. Targeting Moms, meanwhile, serves the double purpose of keeping the sale low-profile (and staves off a run on the hugely popular 7-inch Fire HD) and shepherding kids into the Amazon ecosystem while they're young.

But that's all Amazon's problem. All you need to worry about is that a great, cheap tablet is cheaper today, if you're mother—or if you say you're one on the internet.

Uh, that would be useful only to moms of very young kids. Moms are still moms past the diaper stage, Amazon! I really don't want diaper spam in my email. Creepy questions asked in their signup besides.
