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 [...]
Walmart last week confirmed that it would sell the iPad Air for $479 on November 1 – representing a discount of just $20 on the list price – and on the day of the launch Apple, Best Buy Staples followed suit by offering the fifth-generation 16GB tablet at the same price.
That said, Apple and Best Buy are still charging the suggested $499 retail price for the entry iPad mini on their respective online stores, meaning you’ll have to head a physical store for the $20 discount. RadioShack is to start listing the iPad Air tomorrow albeit at the recommended $499 price tag.
The discount, which only seems to apply to buyers living in the U.S. or Canada, sees the first-generation model fall to $699 and is due to expire on December 31. The Surface Pro price was previously cut by $100 in August.
Microsoft is almost certainly doing this to sell off remaining inventory and could well stop selling the first-generation device altogether from 2014, as it is no longer listed on the firm's main Surface website.
The company announced the Surface 2 and Surface Pro 2 in New York last month and the former is now available starting at $899.
