To celebrate Mother’s Day, Amazon is taking $20 off every Kindle Fire HD model when you enter coupon code “FIRE4MOM.  This promo brings the starting price of this tablet down to just $179 with free shipping.  A big draw of the Kindle Fire HD is it’s beautiful screen, “1280×800 HD display with polarizing filter and anti-glare technology for rich color and deep contrast from any viewing angle.”  This tablet also features Dolby audio and dual-driver stereo speakers, 1.2 Ghz dual-core processor and a Front-facing HD camera for video calls.  Deal ends 5/12 or when supplies are exhausted.

Just about 12,000 Amazon reviewers give this tablet 4 stars, making it a very compelling option over the iPad mini and other 7 inch tablets.

Of note, OfficeMax has the Kindle Fire for $169 this week, in-store only.  Due to potential tax savings at time of purchase for most buyers, Amazon direct is still a more attractive deal.
