Amazon's Gold Box deals are some of my favorite discounts to check out every morning. In fact, outside of the Gold Box, the only other deal destinations I regularly visit are Amazon-owned MyHabit and TouchOfModern, a site full of inspiration and ultramodernism.

But back to the deal. If you've been eying Amazon's latest Kindle Fire HD 8.9" tablet (remember all those holidays that are coming at us fast?), today's Gold Box deal of the day should most definitely make it easier to pull the trigger.

The company is discounting all Fire HD 8.9" variants by a cool $50 - all you have to do is use coupon FIREHD89 at checkout:

Note: Add $15 if you're getting the version without special offers.

The Kindle Fire HD 8.9" has a high-resolution HD IPS 1920x1200px display, a dual-core OMAP4470 1.5GHz processor, dual stereo speakers, 802.11a/b/g/n Wi-Fi, and between 16 and 64 GB storage depending on model. It weighs 20 ounces (567 grams) and measures 9.4"x6.4"x0.35" (240mm x 164mm x 8.8mm).

So, who's picking one up and who's passing in favor of another tablet?

    I've already got a Nexus 10, and I wouldn't want to inflict this on a relative for Christmas, sooo ...

    'm still thinking it would be better to get a Nexus 7 or 10 for my parents...

    You can still get Amazon/ Kindle content through the Amazon apps, correct?

    With the new Kindle FreeTime Unlimited program for 2.99 (Prime member) I had to jump on this. If it was for me, then yes the Nexus is what I want but I can get access to over 1000 GOOD children books for $3 a month. Hard to pass that up.
