Now that the FAA
has relaxed some of the rules
for devices that passengers aboard commercial flights can use during takeoff and landing, ereader
users everywhere can rejoice and also squeeze in some extra reading time on flights instead of just staring glumly at the back of their seats.
To celebrate, Amazon
announced that for one day only, it’s offering a 15% discount on the Kindle Fire HD
, Kindle Fire HDX 7-inch, and Kindle
. That puts the price tag for the Kindle Fire HD at $118, the HDX 7-inch at $195, and the Kindle at just $59. Customers can use the promo code “ThnksFAA” at checkout to get the deal. (Limit one discount per customer.)
“We’ve been fighting for our customers on this issue for years, and we are thrilled by the FAA’s recent decision—this is a big win for customers. Delta and JetBlue have already started flights with the new rules—we’re excited to see which airlines are next,” said Amazon VP Drew Herdener in a press release.
