Amazon has knocked $50 off the 8.9-inch Kindle Fire HD for college students… (Amazon ) wasted no time putting one of its Kindle tablets on sale to kick off the new year.

The Seattle-based online retailer started a monthlong sale on New Year's Day that takes $50 off the 8.9-inch version of its Kindle Fire HD tablet. The reduced price, however, is only available to Amazon Student members who have an Amazon Prime account, which costs $39 for the full year for those who have an ".edu" student email address.

The sale applies to both the Wi-Fi version of the large-size tablet as well as its 4G LTE variant.
