$79 Certified Refurbished Kindle Paperwhite Sale

refurbished kindle paperwhite

Amazon is having another sale on the Kindle Paperwhite 3, but this time around it’s for certified refurbished ones.

Refurbished Kindles are often customer returns and open-box units that are lightly used so they are a good way to save some cash.

Refurbished Kindles also come with the same 1-year warranty as new Kindles.

The refurbished Kindle Paperwhite is marked down to $79, so that’s $40 off the price of a new one.

It’s kind of funny timing because I just posted about the refurbished Kindle Paperwhite being the best ereader for under $100 a couple days ago. It was priced at $92.99 then so now it’s an even better bargain.

The $40 discount applies to the upgraded 3G Paperwhite as well, listed at $129. Both versions are available in black and white.

Amazon has some other refurbished devices too, like the previous basic Kindle Touch for $56 and the previous generation Fire HD 8 for $69, but the Paperwhite is the best deal of the lot.

  1. What’s up Nathan. Question, do you still find yourself using the Paperwhite or Oasis after the Kobo Aura One experience, and if so why? Thanks.

    • I didn’t keep the Oasis because I couldn’t stop thinking about all the cool stuff I could buy for $300 when I already have a Paperwhite that does the exact same thing. The Aura One is really nice for reading library ebooks and books from Kobo, but Kindles are a lot better for PDFs and sideloaded stuff so I still prefer using the Paperwhite for that.

      • Have you tried koreader on Aura One?

        • No. I tried installing it on the Kobo Touch first and it wouldn’t work right so I decided I didn’t want to have to rely on someone else to keep things working anyway. Too many potential issues, and having to worry about it stop working with future software updates makes it too much of a hassle to deal with. I’d rather just use a Kindle for PDFs, and I like how they can be transferred wirelessly instead so it makes it a lot easier.

  2. I agree, PDF is more responsive on Kindles, and generally the software although a bit more limiting is smoother and just works. For example I get a significant amount of freezes on the Aura H2O, not so much on the Aura ONE. As for sideloaded books, I find KePUb output on Calibre works great for sideloaded books on Kobo’s. Still after all that, I find the screen quality better on Kobo’s. After many comparisons, exhanges and whatnot, I find the Kobo’s more evenly lit with better contrast on fonts. I guess it’s a give and take. It’s true that there’s no perfect reader but the Aura One comes very close. Thanks for your input.
