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.
