Buying a Kindle from some one other than Amazon.

  bgrave 09 Feb 12

I am thinking of buying my self a Kindle; I can go down to my local Tesco buy it and get my Club Card points. Is there anything you do not get if you buy it from any body other than Amazon

It makes no difference where you buy it, as long as from someone reputable, so you know you are getting a genuine AMAZON Kindle. If you then purchase your downloads from Amazon, you know there will be no compatability issues.

yes and no.

yes --- Amazon have a very good reputation for customer service another shop may not be as good. If it goes wrong in the first 6 months and you have to return it the it may take a little longer going via a third party.

No --- you should get the same product.

I have bought two from Tesco so as to take advantage of the club card points and also the £10 off that was available about three weeks ago. Just register them and that's it.

As others have said, with Amazon you get their impeccable service and bullet proof warranty.

With Tesco you'll get service, be it good or bad, depends on the day of the week and the weather outside.

There'll be no difference in the product, and once registered with Amazon you'll be able to download Kindle books from their site...

If you want a discount, then Amazon might offer this in a 'cash-back' form, if you apply for one of their credit cards. Argos run a no-interest scheme on their credit cards. John Lewis may still do.

You might find Tesco have a discount arrangement via their Clubcard Rewards scheme, that's presently running. You would need to check this, I am not sure whether it applies yet, and assuming you have and use a Tesco Clubcard!.
