Typically, a $10 discount on a phone or tablet isn’t really something to get excited about. When your product normally costs $50, though, a $10 cut is a big discount.
Amazon is now selling its $49.99 Fire tablet for $39.99 as part of its Amazon Device Deals sale. The device runs Amazon’s custom version of Android on a 7-inch screen and includes 8GB of storage as well as a microSD slot for adding more space. It’s also worth mentioning that the $39.99 model is the one that includes Special Offers, which shows ads on your device’s lock screen. If you’d prefer to avoid Special Offers, you can get an offer-free version of Amazon’s tablet for $54.99.
This 7-inch Android tablet from Amazon isn’t going to offer top-of-the-line performance or a crazy sharp high-resolution display. However, it should be able to handle are your basic computing tasks, like browsing the web and checking email. And at $39.99, it’s a solid option as an affordable Android tablet, especially since Amazon touts it as a durable device that you needn’t worry about dying if it takes a tumble.
The Amazon Device Deals sale is also discounting a few of Amazon’s other Android-based tablets. You can get the Fire Kids Edition tablet for $79.99 ($20 off), a Fire HD 10 for $179.99 ($50 off), and a Fire HDX 8.9 for $429.99 ($50 off). There are also discounts on plain ol’ Kindles meant for reading, like the $59.99 Kindle ($20 off) and the $99.99 Kindle Paperwhite ($20 off).
