The Fire Kids Edition tablet is currently on sale for $69.99. This is the new lowest price this tablet has ever been. This is the same exact tablet as the $49.99 Fire 7″ Tablet, but for the extra $20 you pay for the kids edition, you get a 2-year worry-free guarantee which lets you swap the tablet for a new one, at no cost to you, if it breaks in any way. In addition to the guarantee, you also get 1 year of Amazon FreeTime Unlimited, which normally runs between $35 and $60 depending on if you have Prime or not, and you also get a kid-proof case, which Amazon sells seperatly for $24.99.
Do not buy these if you plan on using sd card (buy obnly 16gb version). Freetime has serious storage issues and Amazon will not fix the issue.
Apps keep reinstalling, but leaving the old app info in an inaccessible area called “Others.”
They are NOT going to fix this. It has been this way for a year. They simply gave me a refund for mine. Others, they just tell them to factory reset it.
Is it safe to assume a new model may be released by Christmas? I’m planning to wait until Cyber Monday.
