Amazon's own-brand devices are already affordably priced, but the company knows a thing or two about sales so we often see them discounted further. However, it's rare we see price drops as good as today's discount on the Amazon Fire HD 8 tablet. Right now, it is down as low as $49.99. That's a match for the lowest this tablet has ever gone and is exactly the same as the offer we saw for it during Black Friday and holiday sales. The price is only good for a limited time, though, so don't miss it.

The 16GB model is down to $49.99, a $30 discount, and the 32GB version is down to just $69.99 — that's $40 off. The savings extend to all of the color options as well as models without special offers. Though this tablet was released in 2018, we think the Fire HD 8 is the best Amazon Fire tablet currently available so this is not a deal to pass by.

It features a vibrant, durable 8-inch HD IPS display. You'll get up to 10 hours of battery life, and the storage is expandable by up to 400GB if you supply a microSD card. In addition, the tablet now has Show Mode. This gives your tablet some of the same features that the Echo Show has. You can use your voice to ask Alexa to show you the news or weather, play a song, call a family member, control your smart thermostat, and more. If Show Mode sounds like something you'll use frequently, you can pick up the Show Mode Charging Dock separately.
