Kindle Fire HD 8.9 with 4G LTE on sale

Kindle FireToday, Amazon’s Deal of the Day is a Certified Refurbished Kindle Fire HD 8.9″ with 4G LTE coverage for $80 off. It comes in both 32GB and 64 GB versions. I believe these were unavailable new the last time I looked into buying one….

Several caveats here:

  • Be aware that this is a refurbished product, although Amazon does give the same return policy and one year warranty that comes with a new Kindle Fire tablet.
  • The network carrier for the 4G LTE coverage is ONLY available through AT & T.  If you want to add a tablet to another carrier, this is not the right one for you. Check the coverage map for AT & T here.
  • The $49.95 promotional data plan originally offered with these is NO LONGER AVAILABLE.  Current AT & T data plan rates apply.
