You need to get a free code at this site.  It looks like you have to get the code by midnight tonight (December 26.)  And it looks like midnight Pacific Time (I'm in Central Time.)

I got a Kindle Fire for Christmas.  What is bizarre is that the box, the Fire, and the little card that tells you how to charge it doesn't say what kind of "Fire" it is.  I have to charge it up to find out what kind of Kindle Fire my hubby got me...

Yeah, I guess I could ask him to look it up, but he's downstairs right now.

But I am going to use my code for the case as soon as I find out what I'm looking for :)

Did you figure out what kind of Fire it is? Congrats on your nice gift!

Yes, HD 8.9" but no 4G.

But, sad to say, not every single Kindle accessory was 40% off--only selected ones.  I'd picked out the otterbox and that wasn't one of the ones.

I picked out another that was $56.99 ($23 less than otterbox) and seemed to have everything except the built-in screen saver--but since the 40% brought it down to $32 I couldn't justify spending almost $80 on the otterbox when I could get the other for $32.

Right now I'm reading "Gone Girl" by Gilian Flynn (got it from the library--it's on my Nook.)  What an amazing, beautifully written book!  I can't wait to read her first two.

Nice. I wanted to check that one out at Best Buy today, but naturally, it was unusable due to low charge. I did see the 9" Lenovo that I am considering, it was quite nice.

I got a kindle fire for Christmas too, and it does say it on the box but it is on the side of the box and is almost the same color as the box just a different finish. (towards the bottom)
