The Fire Tablet was available for $39.99 last week. Unfortunately, the $10 discount is no longer available
Last week, Amazon Inc. (NASDAQ:AMZN) took everyone by surprise by dropping the price of its Fire Tablet from $49.99 to $39.99. The discount was available for all colors, recently launched along with the 16GB variation of the Fire Tablet. However, the discount is no longer available as the Fire Tablet’s price has been reverted back to what it was before.
Amazon may have temporarily reduced the price point in order to encourage sales, especially since the introduction of three new colors. Additionally, as mentioned earlier, it also revealed the 16GB variation of the tablet, so it does make sense for the company to make such a move in order to promote its tablet.
At the same time, it is important to note that Amazon recently unveiled the Kindle Oasis as well. Even though the e-reader is splendid to say the least, it costs a staggering $289.99. In many ways, the device cannot be taken as a wise investment, as it would be much more feasible to invest in a tablet instead. In fact, the iPad Mini 2 costs $20 cheaper. However, seeing how the Fire Tablet serves as a reliable e-book reader and has a lot more functions to offer, it could prove to be an affordable alternative to the Kindle Oasis and for those who do not wish to break their bank in the process.
That being said, this is not the first or last time that Amazon will make such a discount available for its Fire Tablet. Moreover, seeing how popular its Fire Tablets have become, it is highly likely that Amazon will invest much more of its time and resources into the product to make it much more appealing than it already is.
