Today only (June 23, 2014) Amazon’s deal of the day is a certified refurbished Kindle Fire HD 8.9″ 16GB tablet for $60 off (30% savings).
So what does certified refurbished mean? Typically, it’s a product that has been returned by a customer either because they no longer wanted it or a because of a hardware issue. Certified refurbished products typically contain no cosmetic damage and are in new condition. The advantage of refurbished products are that they go through a rigorous testing process. I have purchased refurbished products in the past and have never had any issue and they look and feel just like a brand new product. It’s also worth noting that this refurbished model comes with the same 1 year warranty that the new model has.
The Kindle Fire HD 8.9” is the older version Kindle tablet, released in November 2012. It comes loaded with a 1920×1200 display, 1.5Ghz dual-core processor, 1GB RAM and 16GB of storage space. It’s also important not to confuse this model with the newer Kindle Fire HDX 8.9″ which has a $379 price tag.
