A Best Buy employee has confirmed that the big-box retailer intends to sell the last-generation Kindle Fire HD for $99.99 during the Black Friday sales.
The retailer has previously leaked details of its Black Friday deals by showing its multi-page ad online, but it appears that it has different ideas for 2013.
A local Best Buy employee showed off some of this year’s deals, including the $99 Kindle Fire HD 7-inch tablet, to the Little Rock, Arkansas TV station.
The report mentioned that the slate usually retails for $199.99, which presumably means that the offer is for the 16GB edition (the 8GB model comes in at $139 ordinarily).
The Kindle Fire HD was essentially replaced by a newer and cheaper version (it now starts from $139) when Amazon announced the new 7-inch and 8.9-inch Kindle Fire HDX tablets in September.Source article
