All Amazon Fire Tablets are currently on sale with the Fire HD 8 being the best deal

Amazon is having a Spring Sale on their devices. Included in the sale are Fire tablets which have all been discounted. The Fire 7 tablet is on sale for $39.99, which is a $10 savings. unless you’re on a tight budget, I’d skip on this because it’s the oldest tablet in Amazon’s lineup and it has been $10 cheaper in the past. The Fire HD 8 tablet is on sale for $59.99, which is $30 off the regular price of $89.99. In my opinion, this is the best deal of the bunch because this is the newest tablet in Amazon’s lineup and this sale is just $5 more than the lowest price it has ever been. If you want a bit more performance, the Fire HD 8 Plus is on sale for $79.99, which is also a $30 savings. For the extra $20 it gets bumped up to 3GB of RAM, has wireless charging, and includes a faster wired charger. At the top of Amazon’s line is the Fire HD 10 on sale for $94.99. While that price is not as good as the $79.99 price we saw during Black Friday, it is the 2nd lowest price it has ever been. Lastly, Fire 7 Kids Edition, Fire HD 8 Kids Edition, and Fire HD 10 Kids Edition are on sale for $59.99, $89.99, and $139.99, respectively. That’s the lowest ever price for the Fire 7 and $10 shy of the lowest price for the Fire HD 8 and 10.

    Hi Elias! Quick question: How long do these sales typically last? I am thinking about trading up from my HD8 and taking advantage of the 20 percent discount that Amazon offers, but not sure the trade-in could be completed in time before the end of the sale. I live in a city with a physical Amazon store; would it be possible to do the trade in in person?

    • There’s usually no way to know how long a sale will last, but typically they last 1 week. I don’t think physical stores can give you the trade-in credit. I would just start the trade-in now and if you miss this sale, then just hold on to the 20% discount until the next sale.

    I tried a Fire tablet to use for a smart Alexa home I was setting up. Can’t load eero or Ring apps. Amazon Support told me they’re not Amazon companies. What? Support agreed I should return it and get a different brand. Sent it back for a Lenovo and it worked great.

    • Mark says:

      At least for the HD10, it takes literally 5 minutes to sideload Google and then you can have whatever app you want. I use mine for work and it is a powerhouse since sideloading.

      • Hank Gallo says:

        Good idea, but why wouldn’t Amazon allow loading of their own apps? I didn’t bother to think of alternate methods when Amazon’s support agreed I should return it and buy another brand.

        • Adam O'Donnell says:

          It’s super simple to install the Google Play store on the Fire tablets. A quick Google search will bring you dozens of how-to articles. I do that with all my Fire tablets.

          • Hank Gallo says:

            Oh, I do sideloading on all my Fire Tv devices. I just can’t figure out how Amazon missed that feature. And for support to say Ring and eero aren’t amazon products?!?

  3. Adam O'Donnell says:

    @Doug, I did the trade-in and picked up a 10. For whatever reason they didn’t apply the 20% discount but they did give me $50 towards the purchase for trading in 2 older tablets. It’s an immediate $50 discount so I didn’t have to wait for the trade-in. I have until May to send it in. Now, what happens if I don’t send it in or if I don’t accept their “adjusted value” when they received the tablets I can’t say. I’m not sure if they apply a negative credit to my account or what?

    Amazon also updated the OS on at least my HD10. Not thrilled, but not really bothered either as it seems to be an aesthetic update more than anything.
