Certified Refurbished Kindles

A Certified Refurbished Kindle is a pre-owned Kindle that has been refurbished, tested and certified to look and work like new, unless otherwise noted on the product detail page.

Every Certified Refurbished Kindle purchased from Amazon.com is backed by a full one-year limited warranty, just like a brand-new Kindle.

Prior to sale, every pre-owned Kindle undergoes a rigorous refurbishment process, including:

  • A full diagnostic test.
  • Replacement of any defective parts identified in testing.
  • A thorough cleaning and inspection process.
  • A new product box.
  • A software update to the most recent software version available for the product.
  • Final QA inspection before acceptance as Certified Refurbished stock.

Every Certified Refurbished Kindle:

  • Can be purchased and shipped within the U.S.
  • Comes with a USB cable or power adapter and Quick Start Guide.
  • Is subject to the same return policy as any new Kindle.
  • Includes the same One-Year Limited Warranty you receive with a new Kindle.


  • You may also receive a Quick Start Guide with your Certified Refurbished Kindle. If you don't receive a Quick Start Guide, you can download it to your computer from Kindle User's Guides.
  • If the option is available for your Certified Refurbished Kindle, you can purchase a two-year Extended Warranty offered by our third-party partners.

To purchase a Certified Refurbished Kindle, visit the Kindle Outlet Store.
