Geek Deal: Refurbished Kindle Fire for $139; Today Only

If you’re looking to pick up a Kindle Fire on the cheap, Amazon is offering them–refurbished with a 1-year warranty–for $139.

$139 is an even better price than we see on our local Craiglist (where Kindle Fires usually go for $180 or so) and it comes with a 1-year warranty.

We’ve purchased several Kindle Keyboard units through Amazon’s refurbished warehouse deals over the last two years and, frankly, we can’t tell them apart from the brand new ones–if you’re looking to pick up a Kindle Fire this is a great deal.

Jason Fitzpatrick is a warranty-voiding DIYer who spends his days cracking opening cases and wrestling with code so you don't have to. If it can be modded, optimized, repurposed, or torn apart for fun he's interested (and probably already at the workbench taking it apart). You can follow him on if you'd like.

    Before ordering, take a moment to ponder why Amazon has so many refurbished units to sell so soon after the Fire was released.
