Fire 16GBRemember that 16 GB version of the Fire that Paul mentioned the other day? How would you like to get it for just $10 more than the 8 GB version?

Amazon currently lists the Special Offers version of the tablet at $59.99. Apparently it’s just a one-day sale—it was $54.99 yesterday—so click the link and check if it still is when you read this. Whether you think you’ll run out of space on the 8 GB version or not, $10 is not at all a bad price to pay for 8 more. It’s certainly cheaper than paying $20 more!

If you’ve already bought one and paid more for it, check with Amazon customer service while the sale is still on and see if they’ll adjust the price for you. Sometimes they’ll do it if you ask.

Update: Adjusted the price, since Amazon has. It was $54.99 when I originally posted this. But $59.99 still isn’t bad.
