Fire HD 8 Tablet | $45 | Amazon (Prime)
Look, it’s no iPad—but if you want a solid, cost-effective tablet for basic entertainment needs, there’s no better bargain than Amazon’s Fire tablets. And right now, they’re even cheaper.
Amazon’s Fire HD 8 tablet is a good option. It has a modest 8-inch 1280x800 screen with just enough power to handle apps, games, and media, plus a hearty 12-hour battery. It’s marked down to just $45 right now with special offers (ads) on the lock screen exclusively for Prime members, or $60 without ads—a savings of $45 with either version.
You can pay an extra $20 to get the Fire HD 8 Plus for $65 with special offers, which has smoother performance, wireless charging, and faster wired charging.
