Well the mission is now complete.
But I didn't get it for free.
It cost me $4.00
|Shipping & Handling:||$0.00|
|Total Before Tax:||$139.00|
|Estimated Tax To Be Collected:||$0.00|
|Order Total: $4.00|
My grand Iowa friend, whom you'll hear more about in a later post, sent me a link this morning to a Gold Box sale on Amazon for refurbished Kindle Fires for $139. I wasn't sure about purchasing a refurbished model because I have no experience with anything refurbished. But my friend has had positive experiences and I spent some time reading other buyer's comments and decided to give it a chance.
I only had $135 in actual credits since I'm still waiting on my Swagbucks certificate to show up but since the deal is likely to sell out quickly, I went ahead and spent $4.00 to get the Fire. I could have waited but I know if I did, the deal would be gone. I think paying $4.00 for a Kindle Fire is acceptable and much better than spending the total $199.
So mission accomplished but just not completely free. Now I can use my Swagbucks certificate when it gets here to get a cover. I can't wait to receive the Fire in the mail and will definitely share pictures with you.
