If you are heavily invested in the Amazon ecosystem, then the Fire HDX provides the perfect device for viewing and reading Amazon’s incredible selection of books and videos.

Finally, the screen and display of the Fire HDX are fantastic, rivaling any of the top dollar tablets on the market.
To begin our discussion of pricing, we need to first go straight to the horse’s mouth – Amazon.com itself. The HDX 7-inch tablet comes in 3 storage sizes: 16 GB, 32 GB, and 64 GB. If you pay full retail price from Amazon, expect to shell out $244, $284, and $324, respectively, as of mid-January 2014. For the HDX 8.9-inch tablet, the same three storage choices are priced at $394, $444, and $494. While you will enjoy free shipping, this is probably more than you want to pay for your Fire HDX, right?

If you are looking outside of Amazon itself for your Fire HDX, consider a visit to your local Best Buy. They are currently offering a 16 GB 7 inch Kindle Fire HDX for $199.99, a significant discount from the regular retail price of $244 on Amazon. A 16 GB 8.9 inch Kindle Fire HDX at Best Buy is similarly discounted from $394 to $349.99. Interestingly, the full prices at Best Buy are also quite a bit less than the full prices at Amazon. It would be worth your while to look here first.
