Throughout the month of January, Amazon is offering its Student Prime members a $50 discount on the Kindle Fire HD 8.9" tablet, bringing the starting price down to $249. That's a pretty good deal that more than offsets the cost of a Student membership, which runs $39 per year. For those who are unfamiliar, Amazon's Prime program offers members free two-day shipping on millions of items with no minimum order, free instant streaming to its catalog of movies and TV shows, and a free Kindle book to borrow each month from the Kindle Owners' Lending Library.
The promotion isn't limited to new Student members, existing Student Prime account holders can take advantage of the discount too. To receive the $50 savings, enter coupon code KNDL4STU at checkout. The coupon code will work through January 30, 2013 and is valid on both the Wi-Fi and 4G LTE models.
Amazon's Kindle Fire HD 8.9" is available in a variety of flavors, including:
