You’ve likely heard by now that Target is in the process of removing all forms of the Amazon Kindle from their shelves. I thought that this would entail them returning all of their Kindle stock directly to Amazon. This is not so!
I was at my local Target yesterday, and found two lonely looking Kindles in the electronics clearance bin. Both were the basic $79 model, marked down to $55.30. As that the only form of Kindle I owned was the program on my phone, I grabbed the deal without a second thought. I didn’t, however, grab the also deeply price-cut leather Kindle case; I’m not too keen on spending over 1/3 of the price of the device on something that would make it look, essentially, like a REALLY BIG WALLET. If it would make it look like a pretty, leatherbound book, perhaps I might’ve been interested. Gads, I am that much of a gadget snob? [Reality check: $20 for a clearance priced case is still too expensive!]
Anyhow, if there are basic Kindles crying in the bins, there are likely Kindle Fires sobbing their little batteries out along with them. I recommend you hurry, because if my local Target’s supply was any hint as to what to expect, there are probably very few Amazon products left in those bins!
