A user on the SlickDeals forums spotted the Kindle Fire at both Target and Walmart available for only $123.88, on Sunday. That’s almost $80 off the original price! The sale is apparently unadvertised and it is unclear if it is still running in select stores, so we suggest you head over to your local store to check out this hell of a deal. You may even want to bring the above image with you to see if they can hook you up if the deal isn’t currently running (there’s also more after the break). It looks like you won’t be the only Kindle Fire user, seeing as Amazon had record sales (in the Kindle family) with the Kindle Fire this weekend — the company announced in a press release today. Check out the receipt after the break for more proof.
It’s the deal day today in the United States. To our non-U.S. audience, Black Friday (which follows Thanksgiving Day, a legal U.S. holiday observed on the fourth Thursday of November) officially marks the beginning of the holiday season (Black Friday through New Years). Unless you’re a U.S. resident, many if not all Black Friday deals don’t apply unless you’re shopping for intangibles.

The Galaxy Nexus could launch the week after Black Friday if a timeline leaked by Droid Life stands to be true.
