Somebody posted this on NeoGAF so I thought I'd share here for the tablet gamers out there.  Go to a Kindle page on Amazon and if you see an orange banner on the page that says the following, you can get an incredible discount:
 

Exclusively for you: Get $75 off Kindle Paperwhite ($119 $44) or Kindle Fire HDX ($229 $154), or $50 off Kindle ($69 $19) or Kindle Fire HD ($139 $89). Limited-time offer.
 

Here's the HDX page to see if you can get it:
http://www.amazon.co...rds=kindle fire

 

Apparently it's YMMV, so good luck!

I see the orange banner, but it says my exclusive "offer" is to pay 20% at checkout and then pay the remaining balance in four monthly installments.

 

Some offer.  Oh well.

Yep, my wife sees that "discount" on the page, but I see the good one.  Definitely YMMV.

It's a targeted offer so either you get it or you don't and should be in your email and shown on the front page if you do.

I got the discount and I've got $94 in credit from all the coins I put in to Coinstar a few weeks back. This is a hell of a deal but I've been wanting an Nvidia Shield too and as soon as that shows up on Amazon for $150 I was gonna pull the trigger... oh man...

I never got an email, but you're right that I see a picture on Amazon's main page now.

I'm see the 20% + installments. :(

 

Man, would like a paperwhite. Use the tar out of my regular Kindle.

If anyone gets one of the Fires (I would lean towards the HDX btw) they have "$40 worth" of music related apps for free today: http://www.amazon.co...rd_i=2350149011

I was eligible for this deal so i grabbed a PaperWhite for myself and a vanilla Kindle for re-gifting.  Completely unplanned but phenomenal deal. 

 

Paperwhite: $44 (Case was $7.99)

Kindle: $19

 

 

I had ~$46 in Amex Points which i redeemed on my Paperwhite Order which is why it is so cheap.

Nope...not eligible...just have the installment plan offer.

 

I wonder what the basis is for the targeting since I was even just targeted for a survey about the new kindles after browsing tablets and being on the fence about a kindle.  I guess it's another mystery demographic. *shrug*

Thanks for the heads up!

Just grabbed tune in pro for my $20 original fire! (bought it for $20 off someone who was going to trade it at GS)

Once as a kid I cried as my parents drove from ny to nj. That was a far cry.

Oh, fyi, "buying" at least tune in pro for free gets you a $1 Amazon mp3 credit

Completely random, from what I've heard.  Kinda sucks.

I know that as a business they can do whatever they want, but i still feel that stuff like this is wrong. If we were to walk into a Walmart and they pulled this stuff you could imagine the shitstorm they'd be in with other customers.

Nice I grabbed the $19 after discount Kindle. I already have one but for less than $20 why not have two!

That's strange. I have both offers... I didn't get an e-mail and it doesn't show up for me on the main page, but I clicked the link in the AWD thread, and it let me activate the $75 off offer. And now when I click on the page, it says that 20%, pay off the rest in installments offer. But when I add it to my cart, it takes the $75 off at the check out screen.

 

And you can get two? Do they have to be on the same order?

 

Trying to decide between the 16gb and 32gb fire hdx... I'm getting a nexus 7 or 10 sometime soon, so I probably don't need a 32gb, but eh, I don't know.

I think it's you can get a Kindle or Kindle Fire HD and a Fire HDX or a Paperwhite.  Or you could just let me buy it instead since you're getting a Nexus. ;)

Aww... I wanted both. :( I wanted a 16/32 gb kindle fire hdx AND a nexus 7/10. Was just trying to decide the size of the kindle fire hdx. But if you really want it, I'll give it to you. :P

Got the offer and bought a paperwhite and a basic kindle for a colleague. He's super excited to get both for barely more than half the normal selling price of a paperwhite.

Not eligible for nothing. I'm not mad though since all the screens are too small. I prefer at least a 10 inch screen. I'll just stick to this 10.1 Galaxy Tab 2 until it breaks (hopefully never so I don't have to spend any more money.) Although I would have bought the $19 Kindle just because of how cheap it is.

Have 3 Kindles and my parents have 2. No offer for me.I think the 8.9s are really nice for the screen size. Just wish Marvel Unlimited App worked on Kindle.

Amazing!

 

Thanks OP!

Why, LAWD, have you forsaken me? Checked mine and my gf''s account and no offer. Wonder what their criteria was (if any existed). Congrats to those who got in on it!! Awesome deal.
