Amazon has taken about $50 off of the regular price of its Fire HD 8 Tablet, bringing the price down to just $59. That's a really great price for this tablet, and definitely makes it a worthwhile purchase, especially if you are looking to pick up a new tablet right now.
The Amazon Fire HD 8 comes with a 8-inch display, as you might expect based on the name. There's also a 1.3GHz quad-core processor, 1.5GB of RAM and 32GB of storage here. There is a micro SD card slot for expanding storage as well. This is not a high-end tablet, as you might have guessed from the price. But this will work well for watching content while you're on the go, or even playing some games. The Fire HD 8 does not come with the Google Play Store though, so you will need to grab your apps from Amazon's App Store, which does not include any Google services. That means that the Gmail app is not here. But you can still access your Gmail with an email app that you install on the tablet. So if you really wanted to use this for productivity you could, it'll just be a bit tougher than usual. The Fire HD 8 Tablet is a great tablet to take back to school this year, and at this price, it's hard to pass up.
This item is also eligible for Amazon Prime's free shipping. Which includes free two-day shipping, and pretty cheap (usually $3.99) next-day shipping if you need it extra fast.

You'll get 30 days free (if you're a student, you get 6 months), and then it's $119/year (or $59/year for students).
