Refurbished Fuji XP90 waterproof P&S for $105

On the waterproof cameras front, the lime-green Fuji XP90 is offered in certified refurbished condition for $105 with free shipping by a 3rd-party seller with the order fulfilled by Amazon, so you get free 2-day shipping as a member.

NOTE #1: the seller’s name is “Prime Deal” but it has nothing to do with Amazon. I do not know why Amazon allows 3rd-party sellers to use names that can confuse the casual shopper into thinking this is Amazon.

NOTE #2: “certified refurbished” at Amazon is a term Amazon defines products that have a 90-day minimum warranty but they can be refurbished by anyone, manufacturer, 3rd-party, seller, unicorns, etc. They have created a portal dedicated to certified refurbished products over there.

PS: I am having another “Keyboardian Existential Crisis”, so the chances of typos and HTML errors are elevated as I rotate through keyboards. I don’t know why it’s so hard to find a near-perfect keyboard. Maybe because I “hand-write” HTML which makes the bottom right corner of a keyboard a killer zone (the “< >” and Quote and Shift and Enter areas). If you have any keyboard suggestions please leave them in the comments or use the online contact form.
