Amazon has handed out a 20% discount to its already unbelievably affordable 7-inch Fire tablet, bringing the price down to just $39.99 Prime shipped. Outside of last year’s Black Friday sale, today’s deal is a match for the lowest we’ve seen. It’s not going to beat an iPad or most Android tablets in terms of performance, but there’s no doubt it offers a tremendous value (even at full price). Also available at Best Buy and Staples.
This Fire OS tablet features a 7-inch IPS display, 8GB of internal storage (expandable via microSD), plus rear and front-facing cameras. It has access to all the major apps like Netflix, Facebook, HBO Now, Pandora, Hulu and others (including tons of exclusive freebies!). Rated 4.2 out of 5 stars from more than 46,000 Amazon reviewers. And yes, all of the new colors are eligible for today’s discount.
Use your savings to stuff an extra 32GB in your new Fire tablet with this SanDisk microSD card for $10.59 Prime shipped.
Amazon is also currently discounting its Fire TV streaming media player.
