Amazon Fire Phone

The Amazon Fire Phone was one of the biggest smartphone flops in recent memory but today, if you really want to, you can get an unlocked version of the Fire Phone for just $189.

The 4.7-inch smartphone, running on the Android-based Fire OS, still comes with a free year of Amazon Prime, which is normally worth $99, even with this sale. That helps reduce the overall cost of the Fire Phone down to just $90. Even with that offer, the smartphone may not be worth it, unless you need a cheap backup to your primary phone.

Amazon launched the Fire Phone in the summer of 2014 as an AT&T exclusive for $199 with a two year contract. However, no one bought the phone due to the high price and Amazon later admitted it had taken a $170 million write-down related to unsold inventory of the Fire Phone. It would appear that the company is still trying to unload its remaining units.
