Update: Although sold out at Amazon, The deal is back in stock at Amazon, but also is still currently available at Best Buy.

Amazon is offering its Kindle Fire HD 8 16GB Tablet for $49.99 shipped. Normally $80, this matches its all-time low and is the best available. The Fire HD 8 is a great tablet for Netflix, browsing the web, or just reading some eBooks this fall. If 16GB isn’t enough storage for you, fret not, as you can just add a microSD card to expand the storage so it can store anything you need. Rated 4.2/5 stars from tens of thousands. The Fire HD 8 can also be turned into a budget-friendly Echo Show by using the Show Mode Dock, should you want that functionality as well.
