Amazon is celebrating back-to-school with big discounts. The Fire HD 10 tablet is down to $99.99 from a regular street price around $150. The last time we saw it drop this low was way back in April, and today's drop matches the lowest we've seen for this particular tablet. It comes available in both black and red. Upgrade to 64GB for $154.99, which is down from its $205 street price.
$149.99 $50 off
You can also upgrade to the version that doesn't include ads for $15 more. Grabbing this version of the Fire HD 10 for $114.99 is $50 off what it regularly sells for and a match for its lowest ever.
The Fire HD 10 features a widescreen 10.1-inch 1080p HD display, quad-core processor, 2GB of RAM and offers up to 10 hours of battery life. There are front and back cameras for video calling and support for hands-free Alexa. It also gives you access to Amazon's video, music and book services as well as all the third-party apps you know and love. If the 32GB or 64GB of internal storage is not enough for all of your books, movies and apps, you can use the money you save with today's discount to add a microSD card with up to 256GB more space.

It offers a 5W charge for every device and has protections against overvoltage, foreign objects, and overheating.
Heading out on a road trip is pretty exciting, but having your car refuse to turn on while you're in the middle of nowhere isn't as fun. Luckily, Amazon has several BEATIT portable jump starters on sale today only starting as low as $39. With discounts of up 31%, today's sale brings them all down to their lowest prices ever. The best part about these chargers is that they're not just capable of jump-starting your vehicle; they can recharge devices like your smartphone or tablet too.
The Echo Dot Kids Edition regularly sells for $69.99, but today you can snag one for only $49.99 in either Blue or Rainbow styles. That's only $5 more than it was priced during last month's major Prime Day sale. This smart speaker is pretty similar to the latest Amazon Echo Dot, with the main differences being its paint job and parental controls. However, the Kids Edition even comes with a two-year worry-free warranty which states that Amazon will replace the speaker within that time frame if it's damaged, no matter what happens to it. That's a pretty handy guarantee when it comes to something you'll be handing over to tiny troublemakers. An entire year of FreeTime Unlimited is also included with your purchase.
Before your child has a chance to make any costly mistakes on your tablet, why not get them their own? The new Amazon Fire 7 Kids Edition Tablet is down to just $69.99 today, and at $30 off its regular price, it's a deal you should seriously consider. The larger Fire HD 8 Kids Edition is also $30 off right now. Each Kids Edition tablet also comes with a full year of Amazon FreeTime Unlimited absolutely free, which unlocks access to over 20,000 apps, books, games, shows, and other educational content that's all age-appropriate. This is a service which normally costs over $80 yearly, and it's sure to provide hours upon hours of kid-friendly entertainment for your child.
Smart home tech has come way down in price, and thanks to deals like this one, it's easy to make your home more intelligent without spending a ton of money. Enter coupon code QASHPW4I during checkout at Amazon and you'll get four Teckin Mini Smart Plugs for $25.99. That's nearly $15 off the usual cost, and one of the better deals we've seen for these plugs. Plug in your appliances and then control is at your fingertips with the free Smart Life app, or you can use your voice if you have an Alexa or Google Home gadget around.
Right now, Amazon Prime members can pick up UGREEN's MFi-certified USB-C to Lightning cable for just $6.29 when coupon code UGREEN493 is entered during checkout. This is one of the first third-party cables to be released that is certified from Apple, which means it passes all the safety tests required to properly charge your device. Normally, it sells for $14, which is already pretty amazing, and today's price drop is a new all-time low. If you're not already signed up with Prime, you'll still see its price cut in half to $6.99 with that code.
If you have looked at your cable bill you may have noticed a modem rental fee for your internet connection, and it's time to make that disappear. A number of ARRIS modems are discounted at Amazon today as part of its daily deals. Prices start at just $75 which won't take you long to make back with savings on your monthly rental fees. There are also a few mesh Wi-Fi systems in the sale too.
While it may not be a humanoid butler that can fold your clothes and cook you dinner, the Roborock E35 Robot Vacuum and Mop is still a smart buy if you're looking to automate your day-to-day tasks. Usually, it costs at least $350, but today at Amazon you can enter code ROBOROCKE3 to nab it for $279.99. That price is a match of the best we've seen for this positively reviewed robot vacuum. Today's deal is actually a match of the one we saw on Prime Day, but unlike back in July, you don't need to be a Prime member to shop.
The Anker Bolder LC90 Super Bright rechargeable tactical flashlight is on sale for $20.49 on Amazon. Anker's flashlight usually sells for around $28, and this is the lowest price we have seen since March. The 900 lumens Cree LED flashlight can reach nearly 1,000 feet and can switch between a wide and narrow beam. It also has five settings: low, medium, high, strobe, and SOS. The light comes with a 3350mAh battery that is rechargeable and lasts up to six hours. The body is water-resistant so you can use it even when it's raining outside and shock-resistant so you can drop it... you know, a couple times.
