Deal Details

Last Edited by psychos November 30, 2014 at 08:09 AM
Amazon has the Fire HD 7 for $168 with $127.77 in gift cards if you purchase it with Kindle Unlimited and Prime bundles, which can be redeemed as gift cards. (To clarify: You pay $168 at checkout and receive $127.77 in gift cards via email, which you can apply to the pending Fire order of $40.23+tax.)

You need the Amazon Signature Visa to apply a $30 coupon code for this deal. Net price is $40.23 before tax, with 3% cash back from the Amazon Visa for $39.02.

1. Add the Fire HD 7: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00IKPYKWG

2. Add 6 months of Kindle Unlimited from https://www.amazon.com/gp/kindle/ku/gift_landing - Make sure you select 6 months, not the default 12 months

3. Add a Prime gift membership from https://www.amazon.com/gp/prime/p...ng_landing - Warning: If you don't already have Prime, you may not be able to convert this to a gift card. See the wiki below.

4. Check out. You need to pay with your Amazon Signature Visa and use code KDL30ARC to get $30 off. Make sure you select the option to "Give Amazon Prime as a gift".

Your order summary at checkout should look like this:

Order Summary
Items (3): $267.94
Shipping & handling: $0.00
Promotion Applied: -$30.00
Promotion Applied: -$29.94
Prime Bundle Promo: -$40.00
Total before tax: $168.00

This includes the cost of $127.77 in gift cards. The Fire will show up as $40.23 in your order history after you place the order. (Note that you can only apply the gift cards to the $40.23 amount and any taxes.)

5. A few minutes after placing the order, you'll get an email with the subject "You have 6 months of Kindle Unlimited". Click the "Redeem" button, which will take you to Amazon. The offer won't actually redeem until you select an option on the site.

6. At the bottom of the redemption screen, there is an option to "Click Here to redeem your membership as a gift card". (Do not click the yellow button on the website. See the attached file where the correct link is circled in red.) Click on this link, and your account will be credited with a $47.81 gift card.

7. You'll get an email with the Prime gift membership. Click the link in the email that says "Already a Prime member?", which will take you to Amazon again. Log in to your account if prompted (you won't be redeeming anything yet.)

8. Click the link on the Prime gift membership page that says "Exchange for an Amazon.com Gift Card", and your account will be credited with a $79.96 gift card.

9 (Optional). View your order details for the Fire, and you can immediately apply the gift cards by clicking "Apply balance to this order". You'll have $87.54 in gift cards left over after doing this, minus any tax that the gift cards covered.

Thanks to this $35.53 Kindle thread for info on the Kindle Unlimited bundle, and the screenshot. Props to matt3146 in this thread for noticing that you can add the Prime bonus as well, which brought the cost down from $57.90 (which was already a good deal!) It also appears that the deal can be used up to 3 times.

DO NOT APPLY VISA POINTS TO THE BUNDLE, IT WILL NOT GO THROUGH CORRECTLY. - BUT you can BUY A GIFT CARD WITH POINTS and apply gift card balance

Exchange Amazon Prime for $79.96 gift card ONLY WORKS IF YOU ALREADY HAVE PRIME. BE EXTRA CAREFUL when redeeming gift prime membership and exchange for gift card, couple clicks on the button and you have redeemed the membership. Once redeemed, you can't cancel and can't end it (unlike a regular prime membership). I never found the link for "Exchange for Gift card" and stuck with Amazon prime.

I have not tried this, but when placing the order and you don't have prime, perhaps you can apply for prime trial membership, this way when you redeem the membership, it will show you have prime already and allow you to exchange for gift card.

The only information on this specific deal is buried in the other thread that I linked to. The Kindle Unlimited bundle does not show up directly on the Fire page.

I figure some people might want a cheap Fire HD 7 without having to dig through 20+ pages on a related product.

Just to clarify for other people:

You are paying $109 to obtain a kindle fire 7" hd and $49 "gift card" You are not paying $59 for a Kindle Fire 7" and $49 "gift card"

You can use the $49 "gift card" against the unpaid balance of the kindle before the kindle ships. You would get charged $49 for the "gift card" and then about $10 for the kindle...for a total charge of around $59.

Very good point. If you don't do a silly trick with a second gift card like I did, applying the gift card to the pending Fire order is a great idea.

I can't replicate this deal. Only actual kindle e readers seem to be eligible for the deal with kindle unlimited.

I just replicated this deal to checkout. Make sure you specifically select the 6 months of Kindle Unlimited, not the 12 months it defaults to. (I can't find a direct link.)

You should see at checkout:

Order Summary
Items (2): $168.94
Shipping & handling: $0.00
Promotion Applied: -$30.00
Promotion Applied: -$29.94
Total before tax: $109.00

...then it emails you the Kindle Unlimited/gift card link for $49.31 after you place it, and you can go apply it to the Fire order once you redeem it for a gift card.

By far the BEST BF deal of the year:

Item(s) Subtotal: $109.00
Shipping & Handling: $0.00
Promotion Applied: -$30.00
Promotion Applied: -$19.31
-----
Total before tax: $59.69
Sales Tax: $3.73
Gift Card Amount: -$49.31
-----
Total for This Shipment: $14.11

I think if my math is correct, it actually works out to $24.49? (The Unlimited cost $59.69 minus the gc cost $49.31, leaving a balance of $24.49) <<<----- Right?

It's a great deal, but not quite that good...you still have to pay for the $49.31 gift card. Smilie So yours still works out to $59.69 + tax.

I'm not use to using Amazon CC's because I don't have any. Is the Amazon Visa Signature card a specific card, or a broad term for cards that qualify? Will a bank's Visa Amazon card qualify?

Yes, it's a specific card. If you want to see if your card works, enter the KDL30ARC code at checkout; it'll fail if you don't have the right card selected.
