New, 6 comments

GameStop is now selling Kindle Fire tablets in all of its U.S. retail stores, according to a press release from the video game retailer.

GameStop will offer the Kindle Fire HD 7 inch tablet for $199.99 at 4,400 U.S. GameStop stores. The 7 inch non-HD version and the 8.9 inch HD are available "at select stores."

Those who purchase a new Kindle Fire from GameStop will get a $25 Amazon gift card. Trading in the original Kindle Fire can also earn you in-store credit up to $100.

"Android tablets are topping many holiday lists, so it's the perfect time to add Kindle Fire to GameStop's mobile electronics selection," said Joe Gorman, vice president of mobile at GameStop. "And with customers able to trade old video games, devices and more toward the purchase of new products, including Kindle Fire, we're making it easier than ever for customers to get the holiday gifts they want."

GameStop began a pilot program to sell tablets in 200 stores last November and expanded the program to over 1,600 locations in May of this year. In March, GameStop began selling refurbished iOS devices.
