Pick up a Fire Tablet for as little as $40 right now

Amazon's Fire Tablets have become far more popular in recent years, and it's for a good reason. These tablets pack some great specs into a truly affordable package, and right now they are even more affordable. Amazon is offering $10 off its entry-level 7-inch Fire Tablet with 8GB of storage (opens in new tab), dropping the price down to just $39.99. You can grab the 16GB version for $59.99 (opens in new tab), or jump up to the 8-inch tablet with 16GB of storage for the same price (opens in new tab).

These price drops are all on the latest generation of Fire Tablets, which are thinner and lighter than the previous ones, and have a more durable display.

  • Beautiful 7" IPS display with higher contrast and sharper text, a 1.3 GHz quad-core processor, and up to 8 hours of battery life. 8 or 16 GB of internal storage and a microSD slot for up to 256 GB of expandable storage.
  • Now with Alexa, for quick access to the information and entertainment you want. Ask questions, play music, check your calendar, get the news, weather, and more - just press the home button and ask.
  • Enjoy millions of movies, TV shows, songs, Kindle eBooks, apps and games - including Netflix, Facebook, HBO, Spotify, and more
  • Prime members get unlimited access to over a thousand books and magazines, millions of songs, and thousands of movies and TV episodes - at no additional cost
  • Watch downloaded videos anywhere with a Prime membership, Netflix plan, or Showtime subscription
  • Enhance your entertainment experience with features you only get from Amazon, including ASAP, X-Ray, On Deck, Blue Shade, and FreeTime Parental Controls

The internal storage on these is a bit low and fills up pretty quickly, but luckily you can easily add a microSD card (opens in new tab) and gain additional storage in just a few seconds.

If you aren't looking for a full tablet, Amazon also has a bunch of its Kindle e-readers on sale (opens in new tab) right now so be sure to check them out!
