Y'know... There are ways to get a decent deal on a Kindle 2.

For one thing, Amazon has 'refurbished' Kindle 2s for around $219, which is lower than the full-retail $259 of the new units.

However, that's not what I'm talking about. I'm talking about broken-screen K2s. So far, I've managed to snag two of these on eBay for under $50 (including shipping) each. And, because each of these still had time left on their 1-year warranties, I was able to get them replaced by Amazon for FREE! That means I've been able to buy - through careful shopping around - $518 worth of Kindles for under $100!

One thing, you have to make sure you're bidding on a K2 that still has time left on its warranty. But even if it's out of warranty, the price for replacing the screen is $135. If you can snag a broken one for less than $50, your total cost for a Kindle 2 comes to around $180!
