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 $30 discount on the Amazon Fire HD 8 tablet. Right now it is down to $49.99 for Amazon Prime members. This is a match for the lowest this tablet has ever gone and is exactly the same as the offer we saw for it during Prime Day this year. There's no word on how long this discount will last for, so don't miss it.

Fiery deal

Amazon Fire HD 8

Amazon's Fire HD 8 tablet is back down to its Prime Day price right now. These tablets are great for watching movies, playing games, reading, and more, but the discounts are only good for a limited time.

$49.99 $79.99 $30 off

The 16GB model is down to $49.99, and the 32GB version is down to $79.99. Both of those drops offer you $30 off and bring the devices down to low prices we haven't seen in months. The same savings extend to all of the color options as well as models without special offers.

This tablet was released in 2018 and 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.

If you're thinking of picking up a Fire HD 8 tablet for your children, you should probably check out the Fire HD 8 Kids Edition. It's currently $40 off for Prime members. These Amazon Fire 8 Kids Edition tablets are the exact same Amazon Fire HD 8 tablets you'd find for $50 at Amazon today, though they're housed in a kid-proof case that's built to keep them safe that come in various colors to suit your child's style. The real kicker here, though, 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.

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.

If you want the most affordable Amazon Fire tablet, it's worth checking out Amazon's current Prime-exclusive promotion on the Amazon Fire 7 tablet taking it down to just $30.
