A ruthless murder and a stolen shipment of gold.

At school, sixteen-year-old Nikaia Wales endures the taunts of bullies who call her a “half-breed.” At home, she worries about how her family will react if she reveals her growing feelings for the quiet boy next door.

Those are soon the least of her troubles. Nikaia discovers a hidden cache of gold, and when police find a corpse nearby, her father becomes a suspect. Worse, Elias Doyle is circling, hungry to avenge his brother’s death.

Nikaia desperately searches for clues to save her father. In her quest to find the killer, she learns about the power of family, friendship, and young love....

I was thinking of you when I saw this deal. Are you going to get this?

I'm debating . . . . . I was all set to go before Christmas, but now I'm waffling again. :-\  . . . . . if I decide to pull the trigger and the offer is over I'll live with that.  I don't NEED the device; I'm not even particularly in need of the extra features in the larger HDX. . . . but it's new and shiny! :o

That's the problem I'm having...I don't need another device.  Not at all, but I'm wondering if I should at least update my Fire to the HD Fire.  With the $30 off, it would be $109 which isn't bad.  OTOH, the HDX looks so nice  ;D  Honestly, I should be happy with what I have but they are on sale!   ;)

Yvonne, if you don't already have an HDX, it is an improvement, in my opinion, over the HD.  But I DO have the 7" HDX.  And am not sure I really need/want the 8.9HDX except just to say I have it. ::)  If I still had only an original/non-HD Fire, I'd not be hesitating at all. ;)

Ann, I still have the original Fire.
and am thinking very hard about this deal.
Also have a $50 gift card to use.
I am happy to not have the 4G feature and am also willing to not have the dual cameras.  or the larger screen. So that leaves me happy with the basic 7" HDX.
My question is about the amount of memory. 'cause there is no memory card slot still.  I have seen a few reviews that question the 16GB as being not enough for movies in HD for downloading and viewing later (streamed videos should not be a memory issue).  Do you feel that the 16 is enough or should I be entertaining the 32?

Well, I did go to Best Buy today to play around with the Fires.  I don't think I would upgrade my original Fire to an HD.  If I do get something, it would be HDX and 7" (my fire is 7").  Decisions, decisions...and I have to decide NOW!  LOL

If you anticipate downloading movies, I'd recommend getting more memory. At higher resolution, they will take up a lot of space.

Can someone predict how long they will keep this deal.  I'm thinking about it.  How many days was the last offer out there?

No idea when it expires, but having gone from original to HD to HDX, I say go for it!

Combined my $145 in Amazon points and the $30 off offer to order a HDX 8.9" WIFI with 64GB and a Poetic keyboard case ....Looks like the Fire will arrive on Tuesday, and the case a couple days later. I can't wait to get them.

I am so tempted on the 8.9" HDX...saw one in the store, and it was wonderfully light!  Beautiful screen and FAST.  Makes me want to upgrade my kindle fire.

I did too.  And hope that I will not regret it.
Maybe there will be a newer model soon, or there will be a better deal?

I don't know if I should say you did a great job resisting, but at least you have more money in your bank account, if that helps. Amazon will have another sale again. Just wait.
