No, Its not An Advertised Item. They Just put them on sale. SO if your walmart is a sticklier for having an Ad, your outta luck.

Can it be purchased on sale online at Target.com? Naturally I don't live within 100 miles of a Target store. :(

Nope, (OFFLINE DEALS) only in a target store, or a walmart if you price match. And have a Store within the limits of miles to price match to. But don't hurt to try your local walmart. Last I knew, I think it was 10 miles of the store.

Well if this was wide spread, I think it would of been spreading through the boards rapidly, seems odd one store would reduce like that and an unusual amount don't you think?

They were on sale at select Target stores that sold out of the advertised Kindle. They reduced the price by the same percentage (28%). It's been all over the net- I'm seriously trying to talk myself in driving to town after some :)

I called around to my Targets and just had my Sister go to her target and pick up the $85 kindle for me. The store had a huge cabinet filled with them. Did not have her try for the Fire since I was able to get a 10" tablet for DD for $199 and got the 10" Asus at BB for $249 for DS

I checked out another website (I'm not worthy! I'm not worthy!) and some people have successfully been getting price matches at Walmart and other stores today. It looks like it always takes some argument and doesn't hurt to have copies of Walmart's price adjustment policy on hand, copies of receipts from other stores that reflect that price TODAY, and corporate's number. I struck out at my Wally World but my step-father's sister works at one outside of Moline and she scored 3 at that price (hopefully with employee discount)! 1 for me, 1 as a gift, and 1 for her. Based on the forums, it looks like people are having more success in rural Walmarts than urban ones. I would recommend this for anyone with time and patience.

All 3 of my targets that were out of the kindles said no even with the picture. My Walmart doesn't carry kindles at all.

Yes Its good today as it was not a Black Friday Price. It was not advertised. Just a Reduced Price. Good luck to those trying to price match.

yes, you would have to have a receipt with the price I believe before Walmart would even talk with you....Our Target was a no go, they still had kindles and don't think they would reduce the Fire anyway

Sweet!!!! Was able to get my little brother to score one in Norman with a receipt pic for that exact walmart from a competitor's deal website. Wouldn't have even known to make the effort without the Gottadeal heads up. LOVE YOU GUYS!!!!
