Cyber Monday has become a legitimate rival to Black Friday when it comes to shopping deals. Sure, the deals might not be quite as good, but you also don’t have to go line up outside a store all night in late November; to me, avoiding illness and having a little less stress in my life is worth a few dollars. Amazon, as a leading online retailer, is also a leading proponent of Cyber Monday, and they’ve got a pretty spectacular deal. Amazon has dropped the prices on the Kindle Fire HD and Kindle Fire HDX.
Both units lose $50 off the top of their prices, with the HD dropping to $119 and the HDX dropping to $179. (Not to be outdone, Samsung cut the prices of the Galaxy Note 32GB and 16GB versions by $50 as well, though the Note’s lowest price is still $499.) It’s one of many great deals on Amazon today, and it’s definitely worth checking out if you’re in the market for a tablet (or a really cheap laptop). I bought several Christmas presents on Black Friday/Cyber Monday, and I’ve saved a lot of money in the process. It’s worth checking out.
