Well, that’s certainly what we’re seeing as two different promotions enable the tablet’s price to be lowered all the way down to $159 – in the end, that is. First up, there is a MasterCard “Here’s to Mom” promotion that essentially provides a $20 prepaid MasterCard when you spend $200 or more by Christmas – so that’s the first $20 savings.
Next, you can shed another $20 by using the promotion code 3TLRXE3N on your Amazon.com purchase when you use a MasterCard as your choice of payment at checkout. Actually, the $20 savings is broken up into a $10 credit off any $100 or more purchase, and another $10 Amazon.com gift card via email.
Although it’s not a direct $40 off the cost of the Amazon Kindle Fire when you go any buy one, it’s nonetheless a $40 savings in the end. Of course, you can always try and get cold hard cash for all the gift cards if you can somehow entice a friend or family member to buy them off you, but then again, that’s another level of work on your part.
