US$35 Amazon Fire Tablet coming on Amazon Prime Day as Jamaican Shopaholics get Ready

Jamaican fans of Amazon get your Scotia VISA or CIBC VISA Debit card in gear!

Amazon is cutting the price on their US$50 Fire Tablet to under US$35 for Amazon Prime Members as reported in the article “Amazon's latest Prime Day tease: Budget Fire tablets for under $35”, published July 8, 2016 by Ben Fox Rubin, CNET News.

The Amazon Fire Tablet is among 100,000 items that will a part of Amazon Prime Day deals for Amazon Prime Members come Tuesday July 12th 2016.

This deal is just as good as Amazon Special Offers that began on Wednesday June 29th 2016 as I’d explained in my MICO Wars blog article entitled “How Amazon’s Special Offers means JA$5000 Samsung S7 from Digicel and FLOW Possible”.

Available for new and existing Prime members, who pay $99 annually to join, the Amazon Prime deal is available in the following countries:

1.      Austria
2.      Belgium
3.      Canada
4.      France
5.      Germany
6.      Italy
7.      Japan
8.      Spain
9.      UK
10.  US

The inaugural event last year received a lot of flak for it lackluster product offering. This time around, Amazon hopes to improve on the number of items that they'll be offering on Prime Deals throught the week, making this the largest sales event of its kind online.

Jamaican Amazon Prime Members will definitely be participating, as we've got the VISA and CIBC Debit Cards locked and loaded and our couriers on calls as pointed out in my blog article entitled “How to purchase items and subscribe to Magazines online and ship them to Jamaica”. 

Albeit not an Amazon Prime member myself, I, am looking forward to this, as my Amazon trolley is already full....
