Following in Barnes & Noble's footsteps, Amazon announced that it, too, is dropping the price of a tablet in honor of Mother's Day. The online retailer is now selling the 7-inch 16GB Kindle Fire HD for $179 and the 32GB option for $209, a $20 discount over the regular prices. The regular Kindle Fire is still available for $159.

In order to take advantage of the deal (and we hope you're doing so to pick one up for your mother!), simply enter FIRE4MOM during the checkout process. The sale will last until May 12, which just so happens to be Mother's Day in case you needed a gental reminder. Oh, and if you trust rumors, you can always hold out for the possible $99 Kindle Fire HD.
