Today, December 10, Amazon is having a…

…wait for it…

Fire sale!

Maybe they’re trying to clear inventory before the world ends in a few days.

Use the coupon code FIREHD89 when you check out and you can get the $299 device for $249 (that’s $50 off–I passed high school math). Details on this site.

I don’t have a Fire but I do own one of the older Kindle Keyboards (sans 3G) and like it pretty well. Could be a good gift for the constant readers in your life. Just make sure you give to them before December 21.
