I was wondering if the new kindles will be sold at Walmart or Target? I know that you can get it from best buy and but can you buy them anywhere else?

I believe Staples is carrying them. Personally I would buy through Amazon to get the 30 day return policy.

I'm pretty sure Target is no longer carrying any Kindles.

Now that you mention it, I'd heard that, too.

The Staples local to me has the Kindle Fire HD on display, can't confirm every store does but the company is carrying them.

Definitely agree about buying through Amazon though, that was my plan when I went to take a look at them in person.

Target and Walmart no longer sells Kindle products. Staples and Best Buy have them if you want to see them in person before purchasing.

This wasn't an Amazon decision. Walmart and Target sell Nooks and Apple merchandise. Nook and Apple didn't want the competition at the Walmart and Target stores.

Each company has the right to decide which products it wants to carry, it was not a decision by Amazon.

I personally would not buy from anywhere but Amazon, you have a 30 day return period to check it out and send it back if you don't like it for a full refund.

Apple is setting up a "Store within a store" concept at WalMart and Target and worked out an arrangement to block Kindle sales. Of course, Apple did a similar "Store within a store" at CompUSA back about 15 years ago... remember CompUSA? The "Store within a store" will not have dedicated staff knowledgable of Apple products, it will be mostly self-serve.

The Apple guy at Best Buy I talked to didn't have a blue shirt on, and frankly, acted like he'd never touched an iPad before, so I thought he was a BB employee.

I frankly think it is a really poor business decision of Apple's!

The Apple rep at our BB was very knowledgeable and helpful when my boyfriend went to purchase his Macbook. She was able to answer all of his questions.

Glad I got my baby Kindle at Walmart when I did. It was $79 but got a $30 gift card to use at Walmart. I love this Kindle. I was told it was a corporate decision by Walmart.
