Amazon drops 7-inch Kindle Fire HD's price to $179 for Mother's Day

Amazon drops 7inch Kindle Fire HD to $179 until Mother's Day

Two can play the discounted-tablet-for-Mother's-Day game. Just a day after Barnes & Noble slashed Nook tablet prices across the board, Amazon has cut the prices of the 7-inch Kindle Fire HD to $179 (16GB) and $209 (32GB) for the occasion. Use the FIRE4MOM code at checkout until May 12th and you'll pocket $20 that could be better spent on flowers... or apps, for that matter. The sale isn't as far ranging as we've seen at the rival bookstore, but those whose moms thrive on Amazon Prime will likely be happy.
