THROUGH MONDAY — 7″ Kindle Fire Bundle $79.99 — Save over $104 OFF a Kindle Tablet, Protective Cover, Extra 2 Year Warranty & More!

This Kindle bundle deal has been so popular with our readers when we mentioned it in the past, that when we discovered the bundle would be upgraded to the full-featured 7″ 16G Kindle Fire, we wanted to be sure to let our readers know! Note that Amazon is targeting this bundle towards back-to-school parents & their kids, but this is the full-featured 7″ Kindle Fire that —  purchased by itself — normally retails for MORE at $84.99 (and by itself, you don’t get all the nice bundled freebies added into this deal)Here’s the full scoop…

LIMITED TIME — Amazon has their Kindle Fire for Kid’s Bundle at a DEEP discount — just $79.99 (a savings of over $104). The bundle includes 1.) a full featured  7″ 16GB Kindle Fire wi-fi tablet with camera ($84.99 regular price)  2.)  an extended 2-year accident protection that protects against drops or spills (valued at $19.99), 3.) an ergonomic protective cover (valued at $19.99), and 4.) a 12-month subscription to AmazonFree time (valued at $59.88). This is the best deal available for the Kindle 7″ Fire!

“SECRET SAUCE” SAVINGS TIP:  Don’t let the “Kid’s Bundle” title detour you ~ this is perfect for teens and adults too! Although Amazon describes this as a “kids bundle” (and yes, it is great for kids), it’s also an excellent value for adults & teens since the same full-featured tablet, when purchased by itself sells for $84.99 (learn more here). Even if you don’t use the cover, it’s still a better deal to buy this tablet in the bundle price.


Features included in the 7″ Kindle Fire Bundle:

* Includes the 7″ Kindle Fire 16GB touchscreen tablet ($99.99 retail), an ergonomic protective cover ($19.99), & a 2-year extended warranty ($19.99).

* There are over 72,000 reviews on this powerful reader tablet & most reviewers give it 5 stars.

2-year worry-free guarantee: if they break it, return it and Amazon will replace it for FREE. No questions asked.

* 16 GB of internal storage. Add a microSD card for up to 128 GB of additional storage.

Unlimited, free access to 10,000 kid-friendly books, movies, TV shows, educational apps, and games with 1 year of Amazon FreeTime Unlimited included

* Best-in-class parental controls allow you to manage usage limits, content access, and educational goals

* Power up a young reader’s vocabulary with features that offer hints for difficult words and let you practice them on digital flashcards

* Set reading goals and track progress with Kindle FreeTime.

* Lighter than a paperback and holds thousands of books

* Easily checkout 1000s of FREE e-books and magazines from the Fort Worth public library, too.
