My daughter was so excited when I told her that the new Kindle Fire was only $49.99 plus free shipping. You see, she has some baby sitting money burning a whole in her pocket! She was thinking of buying a lego set, but wasn’t quite sure. When this deal came along, she couldn’t wait to get home and count out her money forÂ me. My three kids currently share our old Kindle Fire (one that got dropped and I had to replace the screen…plus something isn’t quite right and it randomly turns off). This Kindle is a little bit slower (1.3 GHz instead of 1.5 GHz+) and the resolution isn’t as high, but on a 7″ screen, I don’t think it’s going to matter too much. It’s still a decent product for a kid who wants to play some games and watch Netflix (and maybe read a book or two). Also, it has a 2MP camera and the option to add additional storage with a microSD card. When we pre-ordered hers, it said that they might be shipping later than September 30 due to popular demand. Given the price, I’m not surprised!
If you’re looking for a bunch, they have a six pack offer where you buy five and the sixth one if free. That might be a good idea for Christmas gifts.
