Some people in other threads have said they contacted Amazon about their Kindle issues from these sales and that Amazon has sent them replacements. I'm not sure how they've done that. Maybe they are able to check serial numbers or something? Can't hurt to try though.
Edited to add: Here are some posts from Feb. concerning Geek Squad Kindles and people getting replacements from Amazon. Hope they help.

Too bad. I ordered when CNET had their promotion and 1st gen or no, it is a handy little gadget. Gets Netflix, HBOGo, Showtime Anytime, HuluPlus and digital editions of Wired and Better Homes subscriptions. I wanted to get one for my niece and put all her English Lit novels on it for her birthday. Please post again if another deal comes through, they're really quite nice...
cheap but really dated hardware.. it will be frustratingly slow to use after trying out any modern smartphone/tablet
That statement is largely unfair because it depends what you try to run on it. I rooted mine and ran Jelly Bean 4.0 on it over a year ago, and it was perfect for my uses. I wasn't trying to run the highest intensity graphics games on it, but it worked fine for videos, music, reading, internet, apps, etc. Did the speakers suck? Yes. Would it have been nice to have the highest resolution screen? Yes. Was the lack of storage inconvenient? Yes. Did any of that matter? Not really. It was just that.damn.handy. Best way I can think to describe it: damn handy.
Perfect form factor in my estimation. I wish they had put the newest generation in that case- that would be well night perfect.
