Mark your calendar, deal hunters: Amazon brings back a day, after the Christmas promotion it started last year with steep discounts on all kinds of digital content. So, if you are a new media streaming device or tablet for Christmas, you’ll be able to stock it with content at a discount.

Amazon’s second-annual Digital Day will take place on Friday, Dec. 29 the provision of “the biggest savings of the year on digital content through Amazon,” the online retail giant wrote in a press release. Amazon plans to offer savings of up to 80 percent on more than 5,000 apps, games, movies, e-books and other digital goodies.

In a statement, Amazon Appstore Vice President Aaron Rubenson said the response to the Digital Day last year was “incredibly positive”.

“We are happy to help customers find great discounts again this year—or they just have a new Amazon Fire TV , Fire Tablet , or Fire Kids Edition Tablet during the holidays or are looking for new content to add to their current device,” he said.
