Amazon has recently announced a lot of new products that are going to be available for very low pre-order prices. Part of this is offering a good deal, and another part is giving customers the opportunity to purchase even more Amazon-related products. Here is a list of the inexpensive new Amazon products available to pre-order.
Amazon is really trying to give customers a deal as they are offering their 7-inch Amazon Fire tablet for a price of $49.99 on their website. Yes, that is quite a cheap price, and it also features a 1.3 GHz quad-core processor, 1 GB of RAM, 8 GB of internal storage, and also has a microSD card slot to add about 128 GB worth of space.
According to Engadget, it is possible to buy a six-pack of Fire tablets form Amazon for less than $250. That's like buying five tablets for $50.00 each and then getting a sixth one for free.
In addition to this deal, there are other deals that are available for pre-order. This includes the Fire HD8 for $149 with an 8-inch display, Wi-Fi, and 8 GB of internal storage; the Fire HD 10, with a 10.1 inch HD Display, Wi-Fi, and 16 GB internal storage; and the Fire Kids Edition for $99.99, with 7-inch Display, Wi-Fi, 8 GB storage and a guarantee that it can't be broken (if your kids break it, it will be replaced, no questions asked).
This is again a very low price, and another recent deal offered on an Amazon product is so cheap that Kinja Deals calls it "embarrassing". On September 15th, Amazon was offering an Amazon Fire Phone complete with a free year of Amazon Prime for $120.
So how in the world can Amazon offer such deals on their products? There are two reasons why:
1) Undercutting the competition
Look at how much Apple is offering for their tablet, and then compare with Amazon. Amazon is counting on customers to simply look at the prices on Amazon, Samsung, and other tablets and just make the choice of: why would I pay that price? If consumers are just looking for a device to view content, and they don't mind using Wi-Fi only, why wouldn't they just buy one of these.
The Fire tablet offers content, but most of the content is going to come straight from Amazon. In fact, every application that can be played on the Fire has to be approved by Amazon. This means that not only will a consumer buy a tablet from the company, but will purchase even more items available through the company as well.
In short, Amazon is offering its customers some big items at low prices, just in time for the holiday season. Now would be a good time to get to pre-orders on these items.
