Deal: Amazon Fire phone hits a new low at $130, basically free


I feel like we’ve pretty well established at this point that the Amazon Fire phone probably doesn’t belong as your daily driver, but at this new low price of $130, you are basically walking out the door with the phone for free if you are a Prime subscriber anyway.

As a reminder, the device comes with a year of Prime ($99 value), a pair of magnetic earbuds that are actually quite good ($19 value) and a microUSB cable and power adapter that are worth $5-10. Total that all up and you are looking at about $130 worth of stuff, and then there’s the phone itself.

For “free” it is an excellent little device to have around the house for playing games, watching videos, reading, playing music or as a potential device for a child. Again, I’m not going to give you the hard sell on the Fire phone being anyone’s dream phone, but it is perfectly reasonable hardware for general usage and well worth the now near non-existent cost.

If you are particularly adventurous, you can even give the version of CyanogenMod 11 that is floating around for it a shot.
