I've been mostly away for some other projects, but after returning, I saw that Amazon has a special Kindle Fire tablet discount for students only, but it requires an active student version of Prime, which is $39.
Here's Amazon's announcement. (The text is straight from the Amazon page, to show exactly what they're offering and what's required.)
Save up to $70 on Select Kindle Fire Tablets: Exclusive Offer for Amazon Student MembersSpecial pricing is available on select Kindle Fire tablets to Amazon Student members with an active Prime account (six months free or $39/year plan). Join Amazon Student or start your discounted Prime membership to take advantage of this discount. The promo codes below will become available 24 hours after activation of your account, through September 1. New members, don't forget to check your .edu email and verify your account.
