GameStop has added a new electronics device to its growing stable of offerings: Amazon's Kindle Fire. Beginning immediately, the specialty retailer will sell the 7" Kindle Fire HD ($200) in all 4,400 of its locations in the United States.

Gamers in the market for an 8.9" Kindle Fire HD ($300) or a 7" regular Kindle Fire ($160) will need to do a little more hunting, as these models are available only in "select" GameStop outlets. Participating locations are available through GameStop's website.

GameStop is also holding two special promotions surrounding the Kindle Fire. All who purchase any new Kindle Fire product through the retailer by January 31, 2013 will receive a $25 Amazon gift card. Additionally, GameStop is offering in-store credit of "up to" $100 when shoppers trade in an original Kindle Fire. Full trade-in details are available at GameStop's special landing page.

Very misleading. It comes with a USB cable, which is used for charging. It doesn't come with a power adapter for plugging into a wall outlet. But also, it's 2012 and if you don't have a USB to outlet or some form of charging USB outlets, you're living about 7 years in the past.

I would say no since it would be a conflict of interest as people would trade them in for those cards just to buy stuff on Amazon since they're just Amazon gift cards.

Yes I know they have Steam cards but they're not as focused on the PC market and selling Steam gift cards and having the 3rd biggest PC download service behind Steam and Origin is good enough for them IMO.
