Looking to treat someone to an Amazon Fire tablet this Christmas? Then today’s the day to buy it if you haven’t already, with the retail giant slashing 30% off its price tag for one day only. Prices start at $299 for the 32GB Wi-Fi model with “Special Offers,” — down from $429 — while the same device with 4G connectivity can be had for $369.

The discount is today’s Gold Box Deal of the Day on, and although it’s valid for 24 hours, Amazon can only offer it while stocks last. If you want to take advantage of the deal, then, you should do it soon — before it’s too late.

Only the 8.9-inch Fire HDX is included in the promotion — not the smaller 7-inch model — and these are the options available:

In case you need a reminder of its specifications, the Fire HDX 8.9 has a super-sharp display with a 2560×1600 resolution, a quad-core Snapdragon 805 processor clocked at 2.5GHz, 2GB of RAM, Adreno 420 graphics, and Dolby audio. There’s also an 8-megapixel camera on its back, a 720p HD camera on its front, and ultrafast MIMO Wi-Fi.

The Fire HDX also offers Mayday, Amazon’s trademark support feature which provides live video support with an Amazon expert at the touch of a button — 7 days a week, 365 days a year.
