Well, they’re back…refurbished Kindle Fires, that is!
Amazon ran out of the refurbished Kindle Fires pretty quick when they significantly discounted them, but many of you told me you were able to grab one (or more) of them before they ran out of stock – they looked brand new, came with the same warranty as a brand new Kindle Fire, and cost $30 less than a new one at just $169.
I don’t know how long this latest batch of refurbished Kindle Fires will last – and I really believe getting a tablet computer like this for just $169 is one heck of a bargain (compare that to $600 for the introductory iPad). You can get yours if you click here or type in http://amzn.to/refurbfire into your computer’s web browser.
Speaking of refurbished units, the refurbished Kindle 3, which is also known as the Kindle Keyboard, is also back in stock: this is the unit that has free international 3G wireless and does not include the special offers or screen saver advertisements. The refurbished K3 comes with a micro USB cord. Amazon has these refurbished units on sales for just $129, and you can click here or type in http://amzn.to/refurbk3 into your computer’s web browser to check it out – this one is a heck of a deal, also, as a similar unit costs $60 more at $189.
Many people ask me which one I prefer – like many other things, it depends. For reading, I prefer either my Kindle Keyboard or Kindle DX as I prefer reading on an eInk screen vs. a color screen: I read outside a lot and that is a better format. However, I do use the Fire for entertainment (games, videos, etc). My kids, on the other hand, have basically ditched the Kindle WiFi and are 100% on the Kindle Fire for reading, games, videos, you name it. To each their own!
Have a great Wednesday-
