Amazon is having a one day sale on refurbished Kindle Paperwhite units that is pretty difficult to resist.

Refurbished Kindle Paperwhite e-readers are marked down on Amazon today from the usual price of $109 to $85, a savings of $24. Even at the everyday price of $109 they are already $10 cheaper than a brand new model, so you will be seeing some significant savings.

While the word “refurbished” can sometimes strike fear in the hearts of consumers, it isn’t quite the sign of lesser quality that it used to be. These are models that have been returned for any number of reasons, and not necessarily because they were defective. All of the refurbished Kindle Paperwhite models have been tested and certified and come with the same one-year warranty that a brand new model does.

If you’ve been in the market for an e-reader, this is a difficult deal to pass up. As we said in our Kindle Paperwhite review, we consider this the best e-reader money can buy, and at $85 it’s even more of a deal. Act fast, though, as the deal is for today only.
