I wonder what Amazon is doing with the ones getting sent in for repair ? I see some cheaper refurbished units showing up for sale on Amazon.com. That is what Apple does. They sell all the returned computers, iPods, and iPhones on Apple.com and you can save some money and you get the same amount of guarantee as a new unit. I have had very good luck with Apple refurbished products. This could be a good way to save on a Kindle.
If anyone sees any refurbished Kindles show up on Amazon or elsewhere, please spread the word and let the community know.
