As we all hunker down and prepare to spend way more time indoors than we regularly would because of COVID-19, we're all looking for ways to stay informed and entertained to avoid the almost-inevitable onset of cabin fever. With coronavirus dominating the news, Amazon's looking out for its Prime subscribers right now with some special discounts on its lineup of Fire tablets (opens in new tab). These devices are already super-affordable even when not on sale, but Amazon Prime (opens in new tab) members stand to save up to $60 in a promotion that extends to every model from the Amazon Fire 7 to the Fire HD 10 tablet. Options start at just $39.99 making for an affordable way to distract yourself from the outside world.

The Fire 7 Tablet (opens in new tab) is down to just $39.99 today, saving you $10 off its usual price. Meanwhile, the base-spec Fire HD 8 (opens in new tab) is $30 off at $49.99 with other variants discounted by more. The largest Fire HD 10 (opens in new tab) is also on sale with a solid $50 off the 32GB model with savings as high as $60 for the higher-capacity model.

Amazon's Fire 7 Tablet is one of the most affordable tablets you'll find on the market, and your Prime membership saves you an extra $10 while supplies last! Other Amazon tablets are on sale as well at up to $50 off.

The Fire 7 (opens in new tab) tablet was just updated last year, so you're getting Amazon's latest features with this deal.

There are also some nice new color options.

If you feel 16GB or 32GB is not enough space for you, you can upgrade your storage with a microSD card (opens in new tab). The Fire 7 tablet now supports capacities up to 512GB so you'll have plenty of room for games, movies, music, and more.

Amazon's Fire HD 8 tablet lasts for up to 10 hours on a single charge and features an 8-inch HD display, along with the ability to voice control it using Alexa. Nearly every variant is on sale today with up to $40 off for Prime subscribers.

The Fire HD 8 (opens in new tab) features up to 10 hours of mixed-use battery life, an 8-inch HD display, a quad-core processor, and — newly — hands-free access to Alexa. That's something that the Fire HD 10 tablet has had for a while, but this is a first for the Fire HD 8. You can upgrade the storage, too, up to 400GB depending on what microSD card (opens in new tab) you go with.

In addition, the tablet now has Show Mode. This gives your tablet some of the same features that the Echo Show (opens in new tab) 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 (opens in new tab), and more. If Show Mode sounds like something you'll use frequently, you can pick up the Show Mode Charging Dock (opens in new tab) separately. Alternatively, check out this list of the best Fire tablet accessories for other ways to put your savings to use.

If you have Prime, don't miss your chance to score the latest Amazon Fire HD 10 tablet at a steep discount in the color of your choice. These tablets feature Alexa for hands-free voice control, as well as a battery that lasts for up to 12 hours.

The Fire HD 10 (opens in new tab) gets high marks for its low price, high-definition screen, storage expandability, and multi-user support. With hands-free Alexa, it can serve as a great home automation hub too. It takes everything that's great about the HD 8 and upscales it — it has better specs, a larger display, louder speakers, and the same Fire OS experience. Today's price cut to $100 drops the tablet back down to its Black Friday all-time low price.

As well as keeping yourself entertained in your coronavirus self-isolation, we think an Amazon Fire tablet is the best thing to buy your kids while they're off school, too. We don't know exactly how quickly these Prime-exclusive savings will disappear or how long it will be before shipping times lengthen, so be sure to get your orders in while you can. Amazon is also offering Prime members a discount on its Fire TV hardware for those looking for an easy way to stream some video in these trying times.
