The Fire HD 8 tablet is only $45 — down from $90
On sale for $45 (was $90), the Fire HD 8 has a brilliant eight-inch HD display and works with Amazon Prime Video and Amazon Music, as well as hundreds of social media apps, games, and more. With its 10-hour battery life, this baby supports binge-watching.
“This HD 8 boots up extremely fast. The screen movement is very smooth,” wrote a delighted tablet user. “I own an HD 10 but I like this better because the size makes it easier to hold and maneuver.... I had a concern about the sound quality, but the sound quality is very good. The charge time is fast and the battery holds a charge for a long time.” And the price? Ridiculous.
Save $45 on the Fire HD 8 Plus tablet —it's just 65 bucks
Thanks to its compact design and spectacular eight-inch HD display, the Fire HD 8 Plus is a great iPad alternative. It boasts up to 30 percent faster speeds than previous models, with a zippier processor, quicker charging with its USB-C port built-in (not featured on the last version) and 12 hours of battery life per charge, up from 10 hours.
This is truly next level — for only $20 more than the entry-level Fire HD 8. It includes fast and wireless charging (not available on the Fire HD 8). It also has 3GB of memory paired with 32GB of on-board storage, which is expandable up to a whopping 1TB via microSD card.
“This new Fire 8 HD Plus is a leap above the eighth generation Fire 8 HD,” wrote a savvy five-star Amazon reviewer. “Speed and battery are great. The QI wireless charging works like a charm. The 3GB of RAM definitely shows in the use of the tablet.”
The Fire HD 10 tablet is down to $125
This tablet has a brilliant 10-inch HD display at 1080p and 12 hours of battery life so it won’t conk out mid-show. It features a lightning-fast Octa-core processor paired with 2GB of memory and 32GB of on-board storage (expandable up to a whopping 512GB), which makes it the speediest of all Amazon Fire tablets. For pre-Prime Day, the Amazon Fire HD 10 is on sale for $125, down from $150. Grab it while you can!
“The picture quality is excellent. You can really tell the difference from the previous version. The processor is also much faster,” shared a delighted reviewer. “Reading off the screen is very easy with the text sizing adjustment option.”
Save $50 on the Kindle Paperwhite
On sale from $130 to just $80, the Kindle Paperwhite is a great all-around e-reader. Thanks to its six-inch display with a built-in light and 300ppi (pixels per inch), it reads just like paper — hence the name. The clarity is magnificent. Plus, it’s got lots of on-board storage (8GB) so it can hold thousands of e-books and digital magazines from Amazon’s digital bookstore.
"Best Kindle yet," said one of many five-star reviewers. "This Kindle is lighter and thinner than the last generation, noticeably so. The flat edge-to-edge screen is an improvement in feel and makes it much easier to clean. It still has an excellent non-glare screen that I love for reading outdoors."
One of the Kindle Paperwhite’s best features is its looooong battery life — it can go for up to six weeks per charge. That’s weeks, not hours!
