Deal Alert: Kindle Fire HD 8.9″ $50 off — today only

The tablet seems to be one of the hottest gift items this holiday season and I think a lot of it has to do with the low prices this year. The Nexus 7, Kindle Fire, and iPad Mini can all be had for $349 or less, and today Amazon is hoping to make a ton of sales with a great deal.
