2014 Holiday Shopping: Kindle Plus Kindle Unlimited Bundles

happy thanksgiving kindleI had this blog post ready to go yesterday about Amazon’s holiday promotions which included various Kindles bundled with Kindle Unlimited subscriptions. I was surprised when I found out this morning that they had reduced the prices even more on the bundles! The price updates are in red.

First, Amazon is bundling sales of its Kindle and Kindle Fire Devices with 6 months of their Kindle Unlimited subscription serve for a savings of about $40. According to the promotion page, there are currently 4 choices:

  • The basic touchscreen Kindle with six months of Kindle Unlimited for $ 99 $79.
  • The Fire HD 7  with six months of Kindle Unlimited for $169 $139.
  • The  Kindle Paperwhite  with six months of Kindle Unlimited for $149 $129.
  • The Fire HD   with six months of Kindle Unlimited for $129 $109.

Amazon.com is also offering $40 off if you purchase Prime with a new Fire HD tablet. The offer seems to exclude the Fire Kids Edition: That device’s product page does not show the Prime banner. The Fire HD 6, 7 and 7″ HDX are all on sale today for an extra $20 off.

And finally, if you really wanted one but thought the price was too high, Amazon has reduced the price for the unlocked, 32Gb Fire Phone.  You can now purchase one for only $199. The deal includes a year of Amazon Prime. You can still get the AT & T version for 99 cents with a two year contract.

Happy Thanksgiving!
