Retailers Prepare Fire Sale and Refund Policys for HP TouchPad

Oh, the spectacle. Oh, the drama.

It didn’t take long at all for retailers to go into disaster mode once the news that HP was killing the TouchPad. Amazon went into fire sale mode last night with the 16GB TouchPad briefly going for $99 and the 32GB going for $149. Although this morning you’ll only find higher prices from other retailers on Amazon, not the fire sale prices. I expect that to change though.

Best Buy on the other hand has announced an extension of its 14 day return policy. Apparently there is now a 60 day window for a refund or exchange. Which considering that the TouchPad was on the market for a scant 49 days, should pretty much include any purchases at Best Buy.

And of course if you go to HP, you can find the two for $99 and $149 this morning.

Of course the question remains why would you buy one at this point.

    Maybe for the free 50GB storage offer by

  2. At $100.00 it really is a great deal if all someone needs is Internet access. People throw more money than that down the drain for lesser products. The Touchpad may not be supported but everything else now days is disposable anyway so if you only get a year out of it then some might be quite satisfied with that.
