Cheap tablets are becoming less and less rare every day. One of the most popular budget tablets is Amazon’s Kindle Fire, and today, the online retailer has made the already-accessible Kindle Fire even more so.
Now, in return for just $139, Amazon will give you a Kindle Fire. However, that lower price only applies to refurbished Fires, so if you’re looking for a brand spanking new one, you’ll still have to pay full price ($199).
Unfortunately, this deal only lasts until the end of today, March 29th, or when Amazon runs out of supplies. When that happens, the company will continue to sell refurbs – at their normal price of $169.
To inject a personal anecdote, let me tell you my experience with refurbished products: they rock. You get a fantastic, like-new product for cheaper than what you’d pay for a new one. Some companies, like Apple, even replace the outer shells of refurbs, along with the internals that need repairing. In other words, a new product.
Let us know in the comments if you are going to pick one up!
Update: And as I hit the publish button, Amazon sells its last $139 refurb. Since that other question no longer makes sense, let me ask you this: did you pick one up?[Amazon]
