UPDATE: Please understand this is merely speculation and rumor and there is absolutely NO guarantee from Target that this will happen. If you are in the mood for a little treasure hunt please read on for a little rumor about Kindles at Target stores….
So reader Jenna passed on a great tip.
It appears that Target stores have a great deal cooked up with Apple and some of the Target stores will have little mini-Apple stores coming soon! (Super cool Target!)
But along with that little plan, they have also decided to stop carrying Kindle products. So it is widely rumored that Target will start to clearance the Kindle items- possibly as early as tomorrow (5/3).
Now they are supposed to start at 30% off and then move to 50% off and finally 75% off.
None of this is official word although the news outlets are reporting this info already (see article from Yahoo here and article from MSN here).
If they do start at 30% and not 15% off, that would surprise me but we can keep our fingers crossed and see what happens. My suspicion is that most people will snatch these guys up immediately- especially at my store- so I wouldn’t hold your breath for 50% or 75% off but we can all dream right?
This also should include all the Kindle accessories, so if you intend to get a Kindle or give one as a gift this might be a time to keep an eye out for covers and other things to go with your device.
If you decide to start scoping out your store, I would love to hear what you find!
*In case you missed it, Amazon is offering a fantastic deal on the Kindle Fire today so you can get one of those without leaving the house.
