Amazon has put their two most popular tablets on sale this week for Prime members. The Fire 7 tablet is on sale for $34.99 and the Fire HD 8 tablet is on sale for $54.99 until Saturday. Both of these prices are just $5 higher than the lowest price these tablets have ever been, which was during this past Prime Day. These are both all-new models that were released just 3 months ago, so there’s no need to worry that they’re going to be updated anytime soon. The sale prices do not appear on the product pages of each tablet, but you will see the discount appear in your cart during checkout.
Today’s Prime Day Deals on Fire Tablets are lower than any of these tablets have ever been in the past, but the real killer deals come with the available Fire Tablet Variety Packs that Amazon is offering. In the past, there was usually no point to buying the tablet packs because you would end up spending the same amount whether you purchased a pack of tablets or if you purchased them individually. This Prime Day however, Amazon has done tablet packs right and stepped up the savings for buying 2 or 3 Fire tablets at a time. The 3 pack of Fire 7 Tablets is $79.97, which is a savings of $10 over buying them individually at today’s $29.99 sale price. The 2 pack of Fire 7 Kids Edition Tablets are $119.98, which is a savings of $20 over buying them individually at today’s $69.99 price. The 3 pack of Fire HD 8 Tablets is $119.97, which is a savings of $30 over buying them individually at today’s $49.99 sale price. Lastly, the 2 pack of Fire HD 8 Kids Edition Tablets are $149.98, which is also a savings of $30 over buying them individually at today’s $89.99 price. If you’re buying any of the Fire Tablets today, consider buying the multi-packs to get that extra savings. You can try to find a friend or family member to split the tablet pack with, or just save the extra tablets to give as gifts later in the year.
Amazon has both of their Fire Kids Edition Tablets on sale for Prime Day. The Fire 7 Kids Edition is on sale for $69.99, which is $30 off the regular price, and the Fire HD 8 Kids Edition is on sale for $89.99, which is $40 off the regular price. These tablets are identical to their non-kids edition counterparts except you get a 2-year worry-free guarantee included, which means Amazon will replace these tablets if anything happens to them, no questions asked. Also included is a kid-proof case and a 1 year subscription to Amazon FreeTime, which costs about $36 a year on its own. If you’re planning to buy more than one, you can save an extra $30 on a pair of Fire HD 8 Kids Edition Tablets for $149.98.

The Amazon Fire 7 Tablet is on sale for $29.99 for Prime Day. This is the all-new model of Amazon’s best selling tablet, which was just released this past May. Last Prime Day, Amazon was selling the older model for $33.33, so this is the new lowest price this tablet has ever been. The new 2017 has better performance and a better screen than the old model it replaced and is an absolute steal at this price. It is surely going to be one of the top selling deals of the day.

Amazon’s Fire HD 8 tablet has just gone on sale for $64.99. This is nearly a “Great” price on my Amazon Hardware Buyer’s Guide because it has only been lower than this price once, which was this was this past Black Friday when it was $5 less. This is the newest tablet in Amazon’s lineup, but it will likely be replaced in the next about two months.
Just because a new model is on the horizon, that doesn’t necessarily make this a bad purchase. Amazon has been on a trend of lowering device specs in order to offer more aggressive pricing, so the future Fire HD 8 is not necessarily going to be better than the current model in every way. The 32GB Fire HD 8 is also on sale at $94.99 and the 16GB Fire 7″ tablet is down to $59.99 right now.
Amazon is having a sale on several of their Fire tablets. The best deal of the bunch is the Fire HD 8 for $69.99. That’s $20 off the retail price for the newest tablet in Amazon’s lineup. In my pricing guide’s scale of Okay/Good/Great, this qualifies as a “Good” price because it’s just $10 more than the the lowest price this tablet has ever been, which was during this past Black Friday. We probably won’t see a price lower than this until Prime Day in July.
The Fire 7″ tablet is also on sale for $39.99. That price is just “Okay” because it has been $33.33 several times in the past. A better deal is the Fire Kids Edition tablet for $79.99. That savings of $20 off the retail price qualifies it as a “Good” price because the kids edition tablet does not go on sale nearly as often as the regular Fire tablet.
Amazon just put their 7″ Fire Tablet on sale for $39.99. Outside of Prime Day and Black Friday, that’s pretty much as low as this tablet gets. If you want double the storage, the 16GB model is also on sale for $59.99, but remember these tablets do have microSD card slots to expand the internal storage. If you’ve got kids, you may want to consider getting the Kids Edition tablet on sale for $79.99 instead. It’s the exact same model as the regular 7″ tablet, but comes with a 2 year worry-free replacement guarantee for when your little one decides it would make a perfect surfboard and cracks the screen. This sale is expected to last through Saturday.
Amazon has had several of their Alexa devices and Fire Tablets on sale this week. That sale is expected to end tonight at midnight. If you still haven’t placed your orders, this is probably your last chance to get these products at a discount before Christmas. The Amazon Echo is $139.99, the Echo Dot is $39.99, and the Amazon Tap is $89.99. Those prices match Amazon’s Black Friday sale prices and are pretty good overall. Be sure to check Prime Now if you need something that is backordered to arrive by Christmas.
The 7″ Fire Tablet is $39.99, the Fire Kids Edition Tablet is $89.99, and the Fire HD 10 Tablet is $199.99. Those deals are not as good as the Echo deals, but they’re still pretty decent, especially considering the Fire HD 10 never went on sale during Black Friday. Check my Amazon Device Buyer’s Guide to get a better feel of how these prices compare to past sales.
12/18/16 Amazon has extended the sale another week and has also added the Fire HD 8 for $69.99 to the sale.
Amazon has just put several of their tablets on sale. For the most part, these sale prices are not too impressive, but if you’re looking for an easy gift idea for someone, you can’t go wrong with a tablet, and it’s unlikely they’ll be any cheaper than this before Christmas. The Fire 7″ Tablet is $39.99, which falls under the “Okay Price” point according to my buyer’s guide. Prime Day and Black Friday prices are usually around $33 to $35, so this is a usual sale price outside of those special days. The Fire HD 10 tablet is $199.99, which is slightly above my buyer’s guide’s “Okay Price” of $179.99. Oddly enough, this tablet did not go on sale during Prime Day, so while this isn’t a great price overall, it’s as low as you’ll likely see for a while. Lastly, the Fire Kids Tablet is $89.99, which like the other deals, is an “Okay Price” point.
Amazon is offering a bundle which includes the Amazon Tap and Fire Tablet for $119.98. This is the first time a bundle like this has ever been available. The included tablet is the 16GB version which costs $69.99, so buying the two items together saves you $80 off of their regular prices. Referring to my Amazon Device Buyer’s Guide, the combined “Great Price” for these two devices comes out to $113.32, so this deal is pretty good if you’re in the market for both of these two items. The bundled sale price ends tonight at midnight.
