Can't wait to get your Kindle Fire to ship on the 15th and arrive on the 16th? You can pick one up now on Ebay. In fact if you choose a seller that offers expedited shipping you could get that Kindle Fire as early as 17 November. Just think how much time you'll save - a whole day!
Wait a second...
Yes, the Kindle Fire pre-orders are now showing up on Ebay. Right now you can order a Kindle Fire for about $220+shipping from any number of sellers, with ship dates ranging from the 18th to December.
I may like to make fun of this deal, but in fact not all the sellers are trying to trick you. There are a number of sellers on Ebay that are quite legit and while they do charge more than retail, they're also offering a service that Amazon won't.
They ship overseas.
One thing I will always appreciate are sellers who help get around pesky shipping restrictions. I have been hampered by shipping restrictions in the last, much like Amazon is doing here. These folks are the modern day equivalent of smugglers, and I salute them.
