I already contacted the customer service twice about this.
The first answer about where to find the lightning deals on my kindle fire app was jsut generic, telling what lightning deals are and how to claim them.
The second answer refers to using this link
What seems to tell me that I should use the regular web browser.

But I didn't get the answer on where to find the lighting deals within the Kindle fire app.

Does anybody know?

I might be incorrect in this... but I believe the Amazon app on the Fire is the same as the Amazon app on any Android device... or close to it.

And if that's the case, I've never been able to find the lightning deals on it.

What I CAN do, however, is with the mobile browser (which loads the mobile version of the Amazon page)... click the goldbox on that (top of the screen) and you get the current goldbox item and "a" current lightning deal... click "show all lightning deals" and get ALL current and upcoming lightning deals for the day (because its Black Friday week, there are 127 listed... be preparred to scroll)

Thanks! I started to believe that they are really not to be found thru the app just thru the regular browser. But for some reason the customer support doesn't want to say that they can not be found on thru the app and just refering to use that link.
Wonder why they are not visible thru the app though? Tech problems?

No clue... maybe they will update the app eventually, but I honestly find the app pretty useless as it is right now.
The mobile browser edition of Amazon is sufficient for what I need, on my phone anyway.

But most often, when using a tablet, I configure my browser options to emulate a desktop browswer anyway, and surf the Amazon page like I do everywhere else, say on my PC or laptop.

Thats right... I try to avoid most apps, since there is to much stuff missing I want to use and a tablet is usually big enough to display the webpage properly.
Thanks for your help.

I'm using the amazon app for Blackberry and I don't see a "show all lightning deals" option on there when I click on the Gold Box. Any ideas? Thanks.

With my Andriod phone I had to go to the bottom of the screen and click on the link that said "Amazon full site." Then you'll have to expand the screen (it's really tiny) and click on Today's Deals.

I don't think it's there on the Blackberry, nor is the link to go to the full Amazon site. I just used my browser and it's working fine. Thanks.
