[Staples] Amazon Fire HD 10 Tablet (price error?) (ON, unsure about other provinces, apparently YMMV)

First real deal posted, take it easy on me.

Staples has, I believe, misprinted the price of the 10" Fire tablet in their digital flyer. They've listed the same price for the fire 8". It's listed on the page titled "tablets and mobility", in the bottom left corner the three sizes of the tablets and their prices are there.

(People can't read or something?)
1. Look at item online - 199.99
2. Look for item in flyer - shows 109.99
3. Speak with rep to open a ticket
4. Add discount code and purchase
5. Speak with rep again for refund

Just chatted with a rep online and they said they'll refund the money after it ships.

Free next Day shipping, can also add promo code 77473 for an extra 5% off, taking it to $99+ tax. (5% being taken off the full $199 price, even better - effectively 10%)


The current regular price in the US is $149.

Link to item: https://www.staples.ca/products/2963231 ... 32gb-black

Flyer expires March 9.

Edit: updated photos for proof and confirmation from CSR.

Last year I bought alexa fire for 90 USD.

Device pretty cool for this price. I was able to remove amazon ads with help of xda and github. The only issue sometimes It doesn't allow to install application. If you are looking for media/surf that won't be an issue.

To clarify for those that don't understand:
  • The item shows at $199 on the Staples website
  • The Weekly Flyer for the 10" tablet shows it as $109.99
  • Contact Customer Support to have them honor the price error in the flyer.

Flyer shows at $200.79 in Québec. In English or in French, it is the same price. It might depends on your province.

Well, looks like my CSR wont be able to do anything. And only thing she can do is raise it to their OP team and gave me a ref number to contact them back at a later time...

"I do really apologize for the inconveience caused as we need to clarify it with our Operations team"
