If you’ve been waiting, today might be a very good day to buy a Fire tablet from Amazon.
The company is saying “thank you” to customers by taking 15 percent off all Fire tablets for today (Tuesday February 24th) only. This display of corporate gratitude was triggered by an impressive performance by Amazon in the 2014 American Customer Satisfaction Index (ACSI) rankings released last week.
As overall retail customer satisfaction dropped despite improvement for online shopping generally, Amazon stayed on top for all brands with a score of 86. This represented a decline of two percent for Amazon compared with the previous year, but it still put Team Bezos at Number One, easily outdistancing Newegg (-2% to 81) and Netflix (+3% to 81).
I came across a 1999 interview of Jeff Bezos by the late Bob Simon yesterday, and sure enough, Amazon’s founder was singlemindedly touting his company’s fixation on customer satisfaction. It’s not just talk with Bezos. It’s been the walk right from the beginning, and it continues to set Amazon apart from other retailers across industries.
So here they are, one-day great prices on the Fire tablets. If you click on any of these links to purchase one, you will of course be supporting the podcast with Amazon Associates commissions. Thank you and enjoy!
