Best Buy latest to discount Kindle tablets for the holidays

What do you do when your supplier is under cutting you? You discount. That is what Best Buy is doing by discounting Kindle tablets cutting the price on Kindle Fire HD and Kindle Fire HDX devices.

The discounts range from $15 on a Kindle Fire HD 8Gb model, to $30 on Kindle Fire HDX models.

Kindle-giftsAmazon has been promoting Kindles for Christmas quite heavily, of course. The low end model is only $49 today. Previously Amazon discounted the Kindle Fire models, and you can be sure there will be more discounts in the days to come.

Apple, meanwhile, doesn’t discount its current models within its online store. For deals on iPads and other products you would be better off visiting the refurbished store where one can find discounts around 20 percent on some older iPad models.

    Why do retailers fail to think strategically. I mean why would best buy carry kindle tablets when they Amazon is actually giving the product away at cost. Unless they’re buying the units at a giveaway price, it makes no sense. If you competitor is losing money on a product, you don’t go ahead and lose money also.
