After months of deliberation, the FAA finally announced last week that it is going to relax restrictions on use of personal electronic devices such as tablets and e-readers during certain phases of the flight. Delta and JetBlue have become the first airlines to allow passengers to use their personal electronic devices gate-to-gate. To celebrate the FAA’s new rules with regards to electronic device use, Amazon has decided to offer several Kindle products at a discount for one day only.

If you’ve been holding out on buying a Kindle Fire HD, Kindle Fire HDX 7 or the Kindle then today would be the perfect day to go ahead, as Amazon is offering a flat 15 percent discount on their prices. To receive the discount, customers simply need to enter the “ThnksFAA” promo code at checkout.¬†The 15 percent discount brings Kindle Fire HDX 7’s price down to $195, Kindle Fire HD’s to $118 whereas the entry level Kindle can be purchased today for just $59.¬†Unfortunately, the FAA love doesn’t extend to Kindle Paperwhite, Amazon’s popular e-reader. Nevertheless, its a good deal by the online retailer, one that is likely to entice quite a few customers. As previously mentioned, this promotion is only being run for one day, today.
