Tablet makers and retailers have been scrambling to adapt to the growing number of tablets sold in the U.S. This year, sales have increased by about 6.5% compared to last year.
They are selling about 2 million tablets per day, which translates into nearly $100 billion in sales.
But tablets are also becoming a big deal in other countries.
Some major retailers are adding tablets to their catalogs, including Best Buy, which will soon offer a selection of tablets in its e-commerce store.
But for those who don’t want to buy a tablet every time they go to the store, Amazon.com is offering a “special tablet sale” at a discounted price.
This sale, which runs through September 23, is free and open to customers in the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, Australia, New Zealand, Ireland, Belgium, and Sweden.
The promotion is part of Amazon’s $5 million “Easter Egg” promotion.
“Eggs” are fun gifts that can be redeemed for a limited time.
If you buy one, you can also use it to buy additional products, including an Amazon gift card or a Kindle Fire HD tablet, Amazon says on its website.
The sale starts at 9:00 a.m.
PT on Thursday, September 19, and ends at 9 p.m., on Friday, September 20.
“We hope this special sale gives you a chance to grab some great deals and save some money on your tablet,” a representative for Amazon wrote on its site.
“Be sure to check the sale listings to see if there are any deals on your favorite tablets.”
The sales are free to the public.
The spokesperson didn’t respond to an email seeking comment from Business Insider.
