Amazon is discounting its Fire HD 8 Tablet for just 48 hours, bringing the price down to just $79. This was already a really good tablet at $109, and now $30 cheaper, it makes it an impulse buy for anyone looking for a new tablet. It's worth mentioning that this is for the 32GB model, so you're getting more space for the same price as the 16GB model.
The Amazon Fire HD 8 Tablet is a 8-inch tablet from Amazon which runs on its Fire OS. That is a forked version of Android, which means it's going to look different, but more importantly, there are no Google services here. You will be getting apps from Amazon's own app store. That's not really a big deal, unless you wanted to use this tablet for watching YouTube or doing some email. But for everything else, it works perfectly fine. There are still a ton of apps you can use to watch content. This includes SHOWTIME ANYWHERE, HBO GO, Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime Video and much more. This also works great for taking back to school, since you can load up some ebooks on here and use it for your textbooks instead of having to carry around all of those textbooks to class everyday. This is a great tablet to buy, especially at just $79.
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. If you are not an Amazon Prime member yet, you can sign up for a free trial of Amazon Prime. 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). Prime members do get a whole lot more than just free shipping though, so be sure to check out the full benefits.
