Amazon is out to grab as much of the tablet market pie as it can this Christmas season. In an effort to make its new Kindle Fire HDX tablets more appealing to shoppers on a budget, Amazon has announced new payment plans that allow the user to pay for their tablet purchase over time.
To take advantage of the payment plan, shoppers have to start on this page by clicking the Accept Offer button. Once that button is clicked, they have to add an eligible Kindle Fire HDX or HDX 8.9 tablet to the cart. At checkout, they will only be charged for 25% of the purchase price along with sales tax and shipping charges in full.
The remainder of the balance on the purchase will be automatically billed to your credit card used for the initial purchase in three equal installments every 90 days. That gives you an entire year to pay for your Kindle Fire HDX tablet.

Payments on the standard Fire HDX start at $57.25 per payment. The Fire HDX 8.9 tablet can be purchased starting at $94.75 per payment. Amazon is charging no interest or finance charges for this particular offer.
The special offer is good only on the Kindle Fire HDX 7-inch and 8.9-inch tablets with Wi-Fi when they are shipped and sold by Amazon Digital Services. Only one device per customer can be purchased.
Amazon is only offering this deal in the U.S. to customers that have had an Amazon account for at least two years and have a valid credit card associated with the account that is good until at least March 31, 2014. The offer is good through December 24 at 11:59 PM.
The Kindle Fire HDX tablets were introduced back in September.
