If you’ve been considering whether to pick up an Amazon Fire tablet, now might be the time to take the leap. They’re currently on sale, and Amazon is offering particularly decent deals on Fire HD 8 tablets. The Fire HD 8 is currently $60 (down from $90) while the Fire HD 8 Plus has dropped from $110 to $80. They’ve been going in and out of stock, but cross your fingers and you might get lucky and snap one up.

We gave the 2020 version of the Fire HD 8 props for its tweaked design, switch to USB-C charging, long battery life and decent performance. However, it remains annoyingly inconvenient that you can’t install Google apps or use the Google Play Store without sideloading them.

The latest Fire HD 8 Plus has 3GB of RAM compared with the standard model’s 2GB, as well as a faster processor and wireless charging support. Both models have 32GB of storage, which is expandable via microSD.
