GIVEAWAY: Win An Amazon Fire Tablet!

a tablet on a keyboard

Recently I reviewed the Amazon Fire 7″ tablet.  I was reasonably impressed with the speed and screen quality as well as the battery life of the unit given it’s ultra-low price.  There aren’t many tablets priced under $100 and this one seems to consistently be priced around $50.  While I prefer my iPad, there’s no disputing that a $50 tablet is a screaming good deal.

Now that I’m done reviewing the tablet, I’m giving it away to one lucky reader.  That means you’re getting an ever so slightly used Amazon Fire tablet.  It never left my house and I only tested it for a couple of weeks with the intention of giving it away, so you won’t find any bumps and bruises.  I’ll also be giving away a $10 Amazon gift card so you can purchase a few apps (though they say there are tons of free ones).

  1. A favorite place from a previous trip is Costa Rica. The country is so beautiful and there is so much nature to experience. One cannot see it all in one trip. #1 on my bucket list is Machu Picchu.

    1. Gallery, both of these are still on my list to accomplish. I’ve had my eye on Andaz Papagayo for a while.

  2. I’ve never then to Niagara Falls and really want to get there in the next year or so. It’s definitely doable because we are on the West Coast.

  3. Slightly used is good – all debuged ,,,,, smile My favorite destination is still San Francisco. Love to eat!

  4. Favorite destination is London! Big Ben lived up to expectations and the treasures room in the British Library was amazing!

  5. My absolute favorite destination of all time was Kangaroo Island in South Australia. Stunning landscapes, amazing wildlife and an incredible feeling of wide open space. Wish I was going back!

  6. Loved Iceland, need to get back for the Northern Lights. Am looking forward to getting to Cuba before it becomes just another cruise ship stop.

  7. My fave destination will always be Paris! I was fortunate enough to take my mother and we went before the attacks! I can’t wait to go back. It’s a beautiful city with amazing people and food. My mother will never forget the trip!

  8. My favorite travel destination was Machu Picchu. It was so incredible and completely lived up to the hype! A must go!

  9. I just came back from Cancun, Mexico last week with my family. everyday was a beautiful 80 degrees. I miss the sunny weather… We came home to freezing 40 degree weather and pulling out our parkas!

  10. I personally love Thailand. We went 8 years ago while dating and went back recently for our honeymoon. It’s cheap and has gorgeous beaches like Hawaii minus the hefty price tag.

  11. We spent a fantastic week last summer in Paris. 5 nights of it at the Marriott Place Vendome, breakfast included, about a block from Tuillery and Seine. Planning to go back this summer!

  12. My ultimate destination is to see the aurora borrealis. I’m hoping to go on my 40th birthday (5 years from now) but I’ve been seeing pictures of it everywhere lately, so I guess it’s a sign that I need to go sooner! Hoping to go to Iceland soon!

  13. At the top of my travel list is Iceland; the beauty of the nature there is something that I really want to experience. Plus it is my last Nordic country to check off.

  14. One of my favourites is Vahine Island in Tahiti. Went for our honeymoon and it’s a tough tropical destination to beat.

  15. I loved visiting London; had a lot of new experiences, including my first time couchsurfing. I wouldn’t mind going back some time in the future.

  16. My favorite destination past, and my hope to return for a future trip is St. John in the USVI. It has a huge nature preserve for most of the island. An awesome relaxing vacation with plenty of opportunity for adventure.

  17. My favorite vacation is always Hawaii. Hopefully a new favorite will be Marco Island…we’ll be there for the first time on Sunday!

  18. My hubby has always dreamed of vacationing in Belize so that would make for an exciting and beautiful trip for the 2 of us!

  19. A past favorite destination of mine is definitely Bermuda – clear crystal water, friendly people, and good food, what more could a girl ask for?

  20. A future favorite destination of mine is Japan. I have been there twice and I am heading back for a third time in the spring of 2016! ^_^

  21. Currently in beautiful Mauritius …. Greenland is next on the bucket list … still lugging around a 14″ laptop!

  22. I’m a huge fan of Kyrgyzstan, to the point that I dropped what I was doing and moved to the country a few years ago! Amazing landscapes, awesome culture, and ready access to all of wild Central Asia.

  23. Well, I am currently in Milano. Thinking about Pizza! But seriously, my first big solo trip was to New Zealand, over 20 tears ago. Want to go back.

  24. My favorite destination is London. I speak english to I can get along in the country. It has a lot of history and I enjoy the company of the people there.

  25. I did have to work in Alaska for two weeks this year, in Juneau. I saw so much wildlife! Enjoyed it far more than I thought I would. Fortunately right at the end of the tourist season too. The forests are quieting for the soul.

  26. My favorite place I’ve traveled has to be Maui hands down. Hawaii was everything I dreamed it to be and more. Hopefully I will get back soon because it has been 10 years!

  27. My favorite destination is Murren Switzerland where the hiking and friendly people beacon us to come back next year.

  28. I’ve visited quite a few countries in the east, in the west, and anywhere in between. But the one place that will always be in my mind is Bali. The view, the people, the food, just the way I like it.

  29. Hoi An Vietnam – absolutely beautiful, people are friendly, seafood is excellent, and the hotels are phenomenal

  30. I’ve never been to Hoover Dam and really want to get there in the next year or so. It’s definitely doable because we are on the West Coast.

  31. I’ve always dreamed of doing a walk-about in Australia since Crocodile Dundee. I have known many aussies and all have been adventurous fun folks. I think that the land instills that.

  32. I love to go to the Republic of Georgia. It has lots to offer: mountains, a semi-tropical area, great food, friendly people, and delicious wine. All of this priced lower than in Western Europe. Hard to beat, so I have been there 5 times in the last 3 years.

  33. Paris is so special! The beauty of the city is evident everywhere! The people are friendly and caring, no matter what a casual, Ameirican may say!

  34. Having just returned from a trip to Dubai, I have to say it was our best trip. The 150 floor Burg Kalifa with the Belagio type fountains below, the Burg Al Arab, and fantastic newly built Palm Island are all definitely worth seeing and experiencing.

  35. The first time we visited Machu Picchu, the logistics and everything made us not pay enough attention to the site itself. Last year, we returned to Peru and visited Machu Picchu and Colca Canyon. What a beautiful country!

  36. Eastern Slovenia is so nice! It’s quaint and kempt ( think opposite of unkempt). It is white wine country at its finest.

  37. My trip to Japan earlier this year was definitely my favorite due to the amazing food available everywhere you go. Definitely need to make a trip back soon!

  38. The Canadian Rockies are a favorite…my future spot is hawaii. I need that to finish all the us states and Canadian provinces and territories.

  39. Taiwan is one of the most underrated countries to visit. The people are super friendly and the food are delicious/cheap. Can’t wait to visit again!

  40. So the truth is Batlimore MD is a fantastic place! Yes, DC is the Nation’s Capital and unique and where most people go, but there’s so much to do and see in Baltimore, it’s a perfect place for a long weekend! (And flight are often cheaper into BWI airport than DCA and Dulles)

  41. I grew up in Stockholm and love the city and would certainly say it’s the nicest of the Scandinavian capitals. And, I also want to give a shout out to Helsinki. It’s a fascinating mix of West (Scandinavia) and East (Russia). And try taking a day trip outside the city as well–especially to some of the larger lakes nearby.

  42. I think the time is approaching to visit Bali. It’s a long flight but the kindle fire would make it go by a little faster.

  43. Have to say what a hidden delight Kansas city MO turned out to be when I went there for work. The train station was beautiful, and the World War 1 museum was amazing. Not to mention all the lovely fountains everywhere and such friendly people! I want to go back as a tourist for sure.

  44. On a cruise out of Fort Lauderdale, I did a shore excursion to St. John where I snorkled Cinnamon Bay. The water was absolutely amazing and I had such a wonderful time.

  45. Favorite place, Red Square, Moscow. So much going on in as far as architecture and history in that small area. The cathedral is amazing. Bucket list, Petrain Jordan.

  46. I’ve been to many different cities in Brazil for both business and vacation and I’ve loved every trip. What a wonderful country.

  47. If you are looking for an authentic experience in Italy that is away from all of the tourists, go to Sardinia. It has everything – delicious, locally-produced food, a perfect Mediterranean climate, stunning beaches and mountains, a fascinating history, unique traditions, and incredibly hospitable people. I promise you won’t regret it.

  48. Next big vacation for us will probably be South Korea. After that, we’d love to make it a Roman Holiday 🙂

  49. Would like to go back to Jackson Hole WY this winter if I get a chance. Really enjoyed seeing the bighorn sheep and moose so close up! Next time I’m going on the sleigh to feed the elk!
