Amazon’s Kindle Fire HD 8.9 tablet ruffled quite a few feathers when the e-retail giant launched it, marking its entry into the mainstream tablet market. Now, the company is offering the tablet for $50 cheaper to such prospective buyers who are students. However, the deal stays valid only through January.

Amazon Student discount

Amazon has launched the deal apparently to entice the students to reach out for its tablet. Naturally, the discount may come off as a new year gift to the college-going students who are usually not very deep-pocketed.

With this discount, the 16GB ad-supported model of Kindle Fire HD 8.9 costs $249. The 4G LTE model discounts down to $449 with the $50 trimming Amazon is offering. It has been said in the past that the chief revenue that Amazon mints by selling its tablets doesn’t exactly come from the price of these tablets but from the fact that the tablet leads a user into a deeper black hole of Amazon’s ecosystem.

However, that shouldn’t be a point to worry about too much since nearly all tablet vendors rely on the promise of an ecosystem when they sell their tablets.

For such students who are aiming to avail the deal, they must know that the discounted Kindle Fire HD 8.9 comes with two conditions: one is that you require an official email id ending in .edu and must use it to enrol in Amazon’s Student program; the second, a tad bit more vexing, is that you must have a subscription to Amazon Prime, which is $49 a year for students. Add this $49 and the deal seems to pan out to nothing overall, still the fact that you can get a six-month free Amazon Prime subscription may entice quite a few.
