Amazon discounts Kindle lineup in celebration of FAA policy change

Amazon's one day promotion slashes 15% off Kindle prices following the FAA's ruling regarding use of electronic devices.

The Federal Aviation Agency yesterday ruled that the use of portable electronic devices would be allowed prior to take-off and landing, and we're already seeing the effects of that decision. Both JetBlue and Delta began flights today under the new regulations and Amazon is also finding a way to take advantage of the situation.

Under the guise of thanking the FAA, Amazon today announced that they will be running a promotion on a variety of their Kindle devices. Using the promo code "ThnksFAA", customers can save 15% at checkout on the Kindle Fire HD ($118), Kindle Fire HDX 7"($195), and the Kindle e-reader ($59).

Unfortunately, Amazon's gratitude to the FAA doesn't extend across the spectrum, as the 8.9" HDX and the Paperwhite have been excluded from the offer. Interested folks can head over to the source links to check out all the details, but hurry as the offer is only for today.
