Amazon slices price of Kindle Fire HD 8.9 to $249 for today only

Summary:The retailer's deal of the day slashes $50 off its flagship tablet, though quantities are limited.


If you're considering buying Amazon's new Kindle Fire HD 8.9" tablet, you might want to make that decision right away. As in, today.

That's because the online retailing giant is cutting the price of the new model $50 today only as its deal of the day. You simply add FIREHD89 as a coupoin code when you check out, and you can grab the tablet for $249 instead of $299.

Of course, there are caveats, the biggest one being that quantities are limited. You also can only purchase one Kindle Fire HD 8.9" at the discounted price. And since you need that promo code at checkout, you can't use Amazon's 1-Click ordering to make this purchase.

Will you grab a Kindle Fire HD 8.9" at this price? Let us know in the Talkback section below. And don't complain if the deal ends at some point today -- you've already been warned about the limited quantities.
