Amazon selling refurbished Kindle Fire for $139

May 2, 2012 looks like it is trying to move a bunch of used Kindle Fire tablets. The company offered “Certified Refurbished” Fires for $139, versus a regular $169 for refurbished models, on the Gold Box daily deals page of its web site on Wednesday. New Fires go for $199.

Shoppers can buy up to five of the gadgets each, according to the web site.

“Each Certified Refurbished Kindle Fire is a pre-owned Kindle Fire that has been refurbished, tested, and is certified to look and work like new,” Amazon said. “They come with the same one-year limited warranty as a brand-new Kindle Fire.”

The offer runs through May 2 only, or until the refurbished devices run out, it added.
