Deal Alert: The 16GB Amazon Fire HD 8 is Back Down to Just $50

Still kicking yourself for missing a good Fire tablet deal over the holidays? Well, here’s your chance at redemption.

Right now, Amazon is selling its new 16GB Fire HD 8 for just $50. That’s about $30 less than retail. This tablet comes with “special offers”—unobtrusive advertisements on the lock screen. If you don’t want the ads, then you’ll be happy to know that Amazon’s also offering the ad-free 16GB Fire HD 8 for a discounted $65.

You’re probably well aware that these tablets are great for reading books, streaming videos, and playing games. But if you have an older Amazon tablet, then you may be impressed by some of the HD 8’s features. You may even consider making a cheap upgrade.

The Fire HD 8 has an HD 8″ display (go figure), a 2MP rear-facing camera, Alexa integration, and 50% more RAM than the Fire HD 7 tablet. It comes in four different colors, and it holds a 10-hour battery life. Not bad for a tablet that costs less than $100.

If 16GB doesn’t sound like enough for you, then you’ll be excited to know that Amazon is also offering a $30 discount on the 32GB Fire HD 8. You can buy the 32GB Fire tablet with ads for just $80, or without ads for $95. Just keep in mind that most of the Fire tablet’s defining features operate on the cloud. If you’re streaming videos and music through Amazon Prime, then you probably don’t need a lot of internal storage.
