Think of the children
Have you heard about Amazon's updated Fire 7 tablets? Just announced yesterday, these models feature a faster processor, twice the storage, and come in new color variants. The Kids Edition options are receiving the same upgrade, and you can even save $50 today when you pre-order two at Amazon. As they regularly sell for $99.99 apiece, today's deal will bring your order total to $149.98. The tablets will be released in just a couple of weeks on June 6.
199.98 $50 off
These upgraded Amazon Fire 7 Kids Edition tablets are nearly the exact same upgraded Amazon Fire 7 tablets you'd find for pre-order at Amazon today at $49.99, though they're housed in a kid-proof case that's built to keep them safe. The cases feature a built-in stand and come in various colors to suit your child's style, but the real kicker here is the included 2-year worry free guarantee. No matter how the Kids Edition tablet breaks, you can return it and receive a free replacement with no questions asked for up to two years after its purchase. These tablets also allow parents to create screen time limits, set educational goals, and filter content.
Amazon is even including a free pair of Toy Story kids headphones with each tablet pre-ordered; you can choose between Forky and Bo Peep styles. There's just one restriction on today's offer; you can't choose two of the exact same listing. The two tablets you add to your cart must either have a different case color or headphone style selected.
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.
The latest Fire 7 tablets feature 16GB of internal storage, but you can add in a microSD card to add up to 512GB of additional storage. If you don't need the Kids Edition, pre-ordering the regular Fire 7 tablet instead gets you $10 in Amazon Appstore credit. Check out the rest of today's best deals below:

Many PC setups leave a lot to be desired when it comes to the audio experience. Thankfully, Amazon has the TaoTronics USB Computer Sound Bar available for just $23.45 when you clip the on-page coupon for 10% off and enter promo code BPNEPYSC during checkout. It has sold for $35 since October and this is the lowest we've ever seen it go. It is compatible with any device that has a standard 3.5mm headphone jack, so it easily adds a little extra oomph over your computer's built-in sound system, and is powered via USB. It's compact enough to not take up too much space while on your desk, and even includes a headphone output and microphone input.
Kids learn how to use phones and tablets before they're even out of diapers these days. At this rate, think of what they might be able to achieve later in life if they started learning more about computers and coding today. The Bitsbox Coding Subscription Box for Kids was designed to see what happens when they do. Aimed at children between ages 6 and 12, this monthly subscription box acts as a self-taught coding course where no previous experience is required. Each box they'll receive builds upon the last, and though the subscription is normally $30, signing up today at Amazon will score you 50% off the box's normal price for the first month. Each Bitsbox comes with various coding projects that guide your child through making video games, greeting cards, animations, and more.
Having footage of all your road trips would not only be great for a burgeoning YouTube channel, but also for any potential accidents that may happen along the way. While some might cost you over $100, more affordable and well-reviewed options can be found via Amazon, like APEMAN's FHD 1080P C450 Dash Cam. Though it normally sells for $40, today you can pick one up for only $25.99 when you clip its on-page coupon and enter promo code 6T3CGE6N during checkout. It's 1080p, has a 3-inch display, and a 170-degree wide angle lens. It also automatically saves footage if a jolt is felt and supports night vision and loop recording.
The GoPro Fusion is down to $299 — $300 off its retail price and the lowest it's ever gone. This deal was available at Amazon, but quickly sold out. You can still snag it at B&H if you're quick. The 360-degree camera you can capture video and photos of all the stuff happening around you. The videos can reach up to 5.2K resolutions and the photos use an 18MP sensor. You can then use your smartphone to turn the videos into 1080p from any angle or crop the photos into standard resolution, too. The Fusion is compatible with a wide range of Apple and Android devices, and you can use your phone to create and share the footage you've captured using the free GoPro app. You can even use your 360-degree footage in virtual reality to fully immerse yourself or your friends in the memory.
