Kindle Fire HD on sale for $159

Speaking of stock clearing: Amazon is currently selling their Kindle Fire HD 16GB and 32GB for $159 and $189, respectively. That's a $40 discount off the regular price.

Kobo is the only ereader company (of the big four) that is not offering some type of 'Back to School' sale.

I wouldn't take this as a sign of new items. This weekend, several states in the US are participating in tax free weekend for school related items. So the ereader companies are taking advantage of it.

There have been better deals in the past as shown by this thread in the Deals forum.

Looks like the Kindle DX, which mysteriously reappeared a month or so ago at $299, is now selling for $239. I wonder if Amazon is readying a large format refresh.

This is about the time of year when the sales start to get rid of current stock. A sure sign that autumn and new device announcements are on the horizon.

It's much more PC to say:

"Back to School Sale"

than "Last Year Model's Clear out to make room for the new model we will sell for the Holidays sale"...

No such similar price drop in Canada to date. The 16GB version is still listed at $214.

Amazon's red headed step child treatment of Canada strikes again. My favourite example of this is all the years that Amazon would not ship any Kindles to Canada in the run up to Christmas.

Greetings from a fellow Albertan! Yes the pricing from Amazon Canada on their ebook readers is ridiculous.

I've just picked up a refurbed Kindle HD 7 for half that price to play around with. My Galaxy tablet just died and I wanted a cheap replacement.
