Deal Details

Last Edited by CheapestGamer October 11, 2014 at 12:13 PM
The Trio tablets are an in-store clearance item with some of the smaller ones(6" or smaller screen, with I think 4gb's of space on them) being sold for $6.97 as of last month on clearance.

Sears does clearance drop updates on the first of the month unless that day falls on a Friday. So the October prices should be in the system now, possibly getting these tablets for even cheaper.

Anyway, Best Buy is offering a 'minimum $50' on ANY working tablet(their wording). There is a limit of TWO tablets traded in per customer.

I just want to state that the Sears tablets are in-store clearances, as the OP pointed out. Also, Kindle gift cards work the same way as regular Amazon gift cards.

Is there a way to check if these tablets are in stock at your local store?

Aside from going in store to check for them, I don't think there is. You USED to be able to use Google Shopping, but I think that stopped working a while ago.

Pretty slim unfortunately unless you go in store to try finding them. I know the next closest Sears didn't even have any of the Trio tablets or didn't have them out if they did have them.

I'm likely headed to my closest Sears in a lil bit. If they still have them I'll post the division number and item # when I get home as well as the item numbers for any other Trio tablets that may still be a decent flip from Sears to BB.

The thing is there is no way you can track if the store has it or not. I went to sears at 9/16 and got two of them for this price. I think I left one on the shelf. I went back to check yesterday and gone. Anyway, did trade in. Here are some hints. If you check the tablet box and it states media player. Take the FK box out! Only trade in with tablet!!!

Is it possible K Mart will have the same tablets and clearance or just Sears?

After we get the gift card, do we have to purchase Kindle Fire HD or can we just keep the gc and buy something else?

Is anyone able to this lately? I have tried several local Best Buys, and called the web site number. All stated they no longer carry the Amazon card or Kindle card. Thanks for the help.

My best buy has stopped carrying them as well. The next one 40 minutes away still had them last time I was there two months ago.


So you don't actually have to put the trade-in towards a tablet?
